Based on a thread that went throuth this newsgroup a few months ago, I picked-
up a pair of Speedo "Sweedish" goggles a few weeks ago. They have no foam or
*** seal and take a bit of getting used to, but I love them. I can push
off the wall with my head in any position I want w/o flooding them. I have
logged about 50 km in the pool with them (3-4 km at a time) and have only had
water in them twice (both my "fault", not the goggles). Best yet, they
only cost $4.50.
