1. Anti-Fog Goggles

Foggy goggles are a frustration every type of swimmer has experienced and disrupted vision doesn’t help the swim, at all. Anti-fog goggles have a coating that makes it much harder for condensation to stick to the lenses. It’s also wise to use anti-fog spray as an extra precaution. This is sprayed on the inside of the lens, and the goggles and lenses must be washed after every swim.
