Price: £18

Vorgee Vortech swim goggles

The Vortech Swimming Goggle part of the Vorgee ‘extreme fitness’ range, Brand Vorgee sell the Vortech goggle in a choice of clear or smoked lenses, so you may well opt for the clear goggle if your training in the pool, they do fit very well over a silicone swimming cap.


The clear version which would be fine for overcast days and swimming pool look amazing, and if you’re looking for a budget-priced goggle to use both in the pool and outside, but the Tint lenses are going to be the best bet if your out side: Once the goggles themselves are on they have a nice soft fit, they have a leak proof rubber seal, and with a deep profile and curved lenses, this means that they won’t  touch the eyes when on: The over all quality was good: although the thin straps didn’t seem very strong.

So very nice goggle 8/10
