My Conclusion: In the beginning, I was swimming with a decent pair of Speedo goggles when I wasn’t fit for a long session. Every 5 minutes, I was stopping to release the water, remove the fog, and so on. For sure, the majority of people use goggles, but they are not for me anymore. Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to find a decent pair of goggles that would prevent water from entering and for a long time. Well, luckily, not so long ago I saw a guy in my pool, wearing a mask that was a little smaller than a scuba mask and I got really curious. I did a bit of research, and I discovered this new concept of a single-lens swim mask.
After reading positive reviews about Aquasphere , I decided to invest the money to get the Vista Pro mask. I am extremely happy with my Vista Pro, and I treat it with exceptional care (I always wash it with fresh water after my workout in the pool and place it in its box). It does a fantastic job of keeping the water out, and with two sprays of anti-fog liquid, the lens remains free from misting up for my entire 40/50 min session in the pool. I start to see a little bit of water getting in after 50/60 laps, which is a good thing that reminds me to take a short break and recover.
The visibility is excellent as I can see what’s going on in my lane, mainly when there are other people swimming on it. I didn’t use the Vista Pro mask in the sea because I truly want it to last long (I saw the result of what saltwater did on my Cressi scuba mask, which isn’t great even after washing it every time), as it doesn’t come cheap, when compared to other similar mask or a good pair of googles.
After two months of daily usage, I can undoubtedly say that I am delighted I spent a bit extra to get it. By far, the best mask I ever used, and the googles are entirely forgotten. Truly an amazing product. I am sure that if you buy it to swim in the sea, it’ll do a great job too at protecting your eyes from the sun. Please remember that I am not an experienced swimmer, and I am not competing. I swim to lose weight; therefore, I am simply after the comfort of the gears, that’s why I prefer it way more to the goggles.
