Environment: indoor pools and dark conditions.
Transmit a natural light, which makes it ideal for low light, overcast conditions where maximum visibility is required. Clear Lens is also ideal for consistent lighting as it provides accurate vision without filtering our color.
Environment: Outdoor, sunny conditions.
Reduces light transmission to the eye, reducing brightness and glare, making it ideal for conditions with high lights levels (direct sunshine and bright conditions).
Environment: Outdoor, sunny conditions.
The metalized coating is typically applied on top of a dark lens, resulting in maximum reduction of light transmission to the eye. This lens reducing brightness and glare, making it ideal for conditions with high light levels (direct sunshine and bright conditions).
Environment: Indoors and moderate-light outdoor conditions.
Allow a moderate level of light into the eye and provide some glare protection. It''s a practical color for changing conditions.
Environment: all conditions.
Provides excellent vision in both high and low light environment. In low level light (i.e. indoor swimming pool, overcast conditions) amber lenses amplify the light offering clearer vision. In high light levels (i.e. bright sunshine) they reduce glare which also helps to provide better vision.

By far, the best feature of these goggles is the easy strap adjusment. Gone are the days of feeding flimsy straps through buckles, trying the goggles on to see if the fit is right and repeating the process if it isn't. Put these on a little loose, then simply pull on the straps as you're wearing them to tighten to the desired fit. This is essential if you are putting them on a child. (Perhaps adults can set them to size the first time, then take them off and put them on again without resizing. But with my kids, I'm always loosening them to get them off without them complaining. But I don't mind since they are so easy to tighen the next time.)
Also, the strap on these goggles doesn't tug at my kids' hair when taking them on and off like the rubber straps on the cheaper goggles. The split strap design helps them stay in place much better too.
My only small complaint is I noticed scratches on the lenses after only a few uses, despite that I think I read the lenses are scratch-resistant. They are handled by my kids which probably explains it, but I'm good about putting them away in the original packaging when we are finished with them. The good thing is I looked through the goggles myself and it doesn't appear that the scratches obstruct your view when wearing them. You can just see the scratches when looking at the surface of the lenses.
I would definitely buy these again.
Finally, someone that actually swims designed a goggle. These barely (and I mean near nothing) leak, never fog, and feel very comfortable. I wore them last night for over an hour and didn't have that feeling of relief when I removed them.
One thing that immediately impressed me with these was the engineering of them. With claps that insure the band does not loosen and "tabs" to keep the extra from dangling in front of you under water, you can see that someone who actually uses these goggles made them. With no adjustable nose bridge, which is usually the number one source for leaks, I just could tell these would actually work. Kudos Aqua Sphere!
I am VERY happy with these goggles and will probably buy them for the rest of the family now.
For the record, I purchased the clear goggles because I needed to replace my clear Speedo Vanquisher 2.0 goggles for night swimming at the local competitive lap pool. I still have a pair of mirrored Speedo Vanquisher 2.0 goggles for daytime swimming but night swimming was impossible with those.
Let me preface that I have a large, wide head. I have always had issues with the very cheap goggles because I could never get them to quite fit correctly. Water leakage was the bane of my swimming experiences. The Speedo goggles were the first ones that I truly enjoyed as they came with multiple nose pieces and easy to adjust bands. When I got the Aqua Sphere goggles, I noticed that there is no adjustable nose piece. For the people that fit on the normal Bell curve, it probably won't be an issue. But for me, I worried about it. But after tinkering with the band and careful placement on my face, my fears started going away. The rubber was soft and practically sucked to my face.
I then thought the peripheral vision of the Aqua Sphere was fabulous and superior to my previous Speedo Vanquisher 2.0 goggles. With the Speedo goggles, the backstroke was sometimes an adventure as I tend to drift when doing the backstroke.
My other reason for trying out the Aqua Sphere was that fogging was an issue with the Speedo goggles. I used the spit method to keep those from defogging but if I could avoid spitting with the Aqua Sphere, that would be a blessing. And at first, it did seem like the Aqua Sphere goggles were more resistant to fogging.
I was ready to declare a new leader for my default night goggles. But several months later, I've put the Aqua Sphere goggles away and have gone back to a new set of clear Vanquisher 2.0 goggles. Note that I swim daily so that heavy usage probably contributed to faster than normal wear and tear. But I took extremely good care of my Aqua Sphere goggles after reading various Amazon customer reviews that the Aqua Sphere lens were more prone to scratching. But months later, I see fine scratches that should not be there. The rubber is no longer as soft and pliable as when it was brand new. The pliability of the new rubber was the main reason why I didn't have water leakage in the beginning since there's no adjustable nose piece and because I have a large wide face. But without the pliability, water leakage ensued. And because of the imperfect seal, the goggles are now prone to fogging up.
Some tips to increase your enjoyment of these goggles. Carry around the goggles in the original case to try to minimize scratching of the lens. You may think you can live with scratching but it affects your vision under water. If the fit isn't quite right with you, replace these with another set of goggles that have an adjustable nose piece. One size does not fit all. Rinse the goggles effectively after your swim.
I do miss the better peripheral vision of the Aqua Sphere goggles than my Vanquisher 2.0 goggles. But everything else about the Speedo goggles is equal or better for my needs. And the Speedo ones have lasted me a lot longer with my daily swim habits.
