Blending a high-tech design with outstanding performance, Speedo's Hydrospex multi-purpose swim goggle is an affordable, stylish choice for recreational swimmers. It features a frosted, one-piece PVC vinyl frame for a low-drag profile in the water. The flared lens gaskets with hypo-allergenic seals offer good coverage around the eyes and a watertight fit. The non-scratch lenses are hard-coated with anti-fogging protection and provide 95 percent UV protection. It also features a non-adjustable nose bridge and a silicone split headstrap for optimal fit.
In 1914, Speedo was founded in Australia by Alexander MacRae, a 22-year-old Scottish immigrant who arrived in the country in 1910. The company began when MacRae Hosiery manufacturers, established by Alexander in 1914, extended the manufacture of underwear to swimwear and became MacRae Knitting Mills. A naming competition was held by the staff in 1928 and won by a Captain Parsonson, who coined the slogan, "Speed on in your Speedos." In 1929, the first swimsuits were in production and it didnt take long for Speedo to successfully establish itself. World War II caused the brand turn over 90% of its manufacturing to war production, providing the armed services with vital equipment such as mosquito nets. After the war, Speedo opened a new factory and was able to re-establish itself, due to increased demand for swimsuits. In 1951, Speedo Knitting Mills (Holdings) Ltd, was incorporated and became a publicly traded company on the Sydney Stock exchange.
Speedo hit the international stage in earnest, at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, and a few years later the brand grew on a more global scale. Export sales to the USA began and an international division was set up to monitor trade in New Zealand, Japan and South Africa. The expansion of the brand continued, and in 1976, Speedo was appointed as the official swimwear for the 1976 Montreal Olympics, where 52 out of 54 countries wore their swimsuits.
Speedo continues to make its mark in the pool and on the beach today. Many world class athletes who wear Speedo include U.S. phenomenon Michael Phelps, legendary Australian swimmer Grant Hackett, world record holder Kosuke Kitajima from Japan, and Hollands Inge de Bruijn.

I tried many goggles over the years, I miss my photochromatic version of these goggles, but the clear and the smoke versions work well for me, I just have to have those two versions (one for day/sun swimming and one for night/inside swimming) to do the job of what the photochromatic used to do.
Always get a good seal with these. Highly recommend.
I really don't see how this was caused by user damage. They weren't left outdoors or exposed to heat. Maybe I just got a faulty pair, in which case, I'd give these 4 stars had they not fallen apart after a handful of wearings.
