The new Orca goggle mask is a comfortable alternative to the classic swimming goggles. This light and water resistant mask has bigger lenses, which offer a wider field of vision. It has been designed to sit perfectly on the nose and face, shielding you from injury during triathlon races. Added silicone and a simple adjustment prevent marks around the eyes. A goggle for maximum comfort and broader vision.
Goggles designed for open water swimmers generally try to reduce some of the challenges that are unique to the open water environment, as opposed to a controlled pool environment. Orca has worked hard to try and reduce the challenges open water swimmers face by creating the new goggle mask with increased peripheral vision, comfortable straps and gaskets, and ultra anti-fog coatings on the lenses to try and make lake/ocean swims safer and more enjoyable.
If you’re unsure whether you should choose goggles or a mask, this helpful article might help offer some guidance.
