Which goggles are best for me?Updated 4 months ago

Goggles they are tough, they give us ultimate visibility and they protect our eyes, and they are perhaps the unsung heroes of the water world. While trisuits and wetsuits get all the glory, the humble goggles are most certainly an essential part of the kit that every swimmer needs. So, choosing the right ones for you, your style or your event is vital; It’s time to get geeky about goggles and find the right ones for you.



At ZONE3 we only offer great goggles, the differences come in the fit, style, and purpose. You can be sure to find a pair that fits you perfectly whilst never having to compromise on quality.



Every pair of ZONE3 Goggles is designed with comfort in the water in mind. You shouldn’t have to struggle with your goggles during your swim; de-fogging, clearing water, enduring pain around the eyes and uncomfortable straps, these issues should be a thing of the past. We use ultra-soft silicone that is gentler on eye sockets and thoughtfully designed shapes for an even better fit to help reduce those annoying “you’ve been swimming haven’t you?” red suction marks that appear around the eyes. The flexibility and softness of the ZONE3 goggles also minimise the risk of serious injury in case of any accidents during a swim; whether in the pool or open water.

Fog-free as standard

Put the DIY de-fogging techniques and myths behind you. You don’t need toothpaste, shaving cream, baby shampoo or saliva anymore; every pair of ZONE3 Goggles are designed with Anti-fog coating and UVA protection so you can rest assured that your eyes are safe, clear and protected during every swim whether you’re inside or out. When you choose ZONE3 goggles, you choose kit you can rely on so you can save your time, energy and focus for when it counts, for every breath and to hone every stroke.

Attack: For open water & pool swimming

The Attack Polarized Goggles have been built for every swim. Whether it’s in the pool or open water, they’re suitable for low and bright light conditions whilst offering a reflective lens so you can stay focused and avoid eye-contact during group swims or training.
