Default swimm goggles

Hey fellas, Can anyone recomman some good goggles? Mine seem to be less than good as I have to take them off every odd race and they put a lot of pressure on my eyes...

I'm looking for something in the 10-30$ range. I went to a local store and they had something called Arena IMAX which the guy said are good..but I have no experise and I don't wanna buy a dud.

Advice?

Thank you!

I've had great luck with goggles from aquagoggle.com in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. They are equivalent to prescription goggles and having a soft silicon "frame" they seal well and are very comfortable. They were recommended to me through a post here as I recommend them to you. In your price range too!

Yes. Thanks. Problem is I live in Romania so I think I have a better chance finding a bigger, international brand like speedo, arena etc..

I have had good luck with these, over many years. They are available via Amazon, other vendors (scroll down), or the manufacturer -
Skyline Northwest.

All parts are replaceable and adjustable. There are various styles. The eye cushions (for some styles) can be ordered in one of two thicknesses.
I use the thick pads because I have deep eye sockets.

There is a several hour adjustment and break-in period, but once the pads mold to your face the straps can be loosened; there should be no leaks and fewer headaches.

I use a similar pair of googles to what Daveblt suggested. $10.00 at Walmart, seal great, don't strap them on too tight and you're good to go. When they go bad, swap em out.
