I use the aquasphere vista for everything, training and racing as I think its a perfect hybrid. Not as big as a full size seal mask, but with the benefit of no leaking whatsover and comfortable for 2 hours or more.

I've had two pairs for a year. One for indoor, tinted for open water. After a year, swimming a minimum of 3 days, the clear ones needed replacing. Very comfortable even for my big head.
I've triedany brands and the Seal was the only one that fit.

Not tried the Seal Mask myself but I know of one other that has used it with little success. Leaked on them .... but I would expect you would need to be certain of the proper fit. Likely when adjusted correctly they would be fine. And they provide a wide view.

But what I like about goggle questions is that I get another chance to champion what works for me .... as was recommended through someone on here long ago. I speak of the V2 goggles from Aquagoggle.com in Kitchner/Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. These run about $25 canadian and are prescription goggles. On my pair the factory antifog lasted a full year; the seal is perfec;and with the silicone frame they are very comfortable. I would however like a deeper tint for swimming outdoors. Hope this helps somehow.

Default Anti-Fog Tips?

I had the Seal XP for quite awhile and it was fine. Once I 'got the clue' not to over-tighten the strap I never had any problems with leaking.

Anyone have a tip for a good anti-fog type spray or solution?

Aquaseal Sea Drops diluted with water to about the consistency of a light machine oil works well for me. Sea Drops are recommended for dive masks and is quite a thick fluid. One or two drops ( of the diluted mixture ) in each lens, rub in gently and then well rinsed goggles before wearing. But there are several anti fog potions available at your local dive shop. Another is called "No Fog" --- and that worked well too.
