Whether for children or adults, recreational or competitive swimmers, if you have a smaller bone structure then the Barracuda Medalist offers comfort, fit and functionality you won't find in standard size frames. Barracuda's Medalist Fog Resistant Goggles are specially designed to fit smaller framed faces while reducing fog and dreaded "raccoon ring" caused by traditional gasket goggles (thanks to a soft foam gasket). The Medalist is produced by Barracuda, a USA based manufacturer of high quality goggles and masks.
Positive Pressure Gasket
The Medalist Fog Resistant goggle features Barracuda's positive-pressure seal technology. This frame design fits around the eye socket to create a waterproof seal, instead of relying on suction. Positive-pressure frames dramatically improve comfort while also eliminating raccoon ring caused by traditional goggle frames.
Style and Fit
Available in your choice of a blue lens/blue frame for all around swimming, clear lens/clear frame for low light conditions, or a smoke lens/smoke frame for bright days, all Medalist Fog Resistant Goggles offer 100% UV protection. A fog resistant coating keeps these goggles crystal clear for less time defogging and more time swimming laps.
The Barracuda Medalist Fog Resistant Goggles are one-size-fits-all, with fully adjustable straps and nose piece for that perfect custom fit.
All swim goggles should be protected when not used. To prevent scratches and to keep your goggle seals from drying out, store them in the Barracuda Protective Goggle Case which features 3 large grommeted holes to allow for proper drainage (sold separately).
Barracuda's Medalist line is recommended for swimmers of any age or ability level with a smaller facial bone structure. If you have an average frame face, but are looking for the comfort and functionality of the Medalist Fog Resistant Goggles, consider Barracuda's Standard Fog-Resistant Goggles. Barracuda also offers the Medalist Optical Grade Swim Goggles, made with lighter weight, optically correct CR-39 plastic for enhanced visual clarity and greater scratch-resistance.
The Aquagear Opinion
Barracuda's Medalist series offers a comfortable fit for swimmers with smaller bone structure. Not only does the Medalist fit smaller faces properly, but they also take the uncomfortable suction of traditional gasket style goggles out of the equation. Don't expect to be dazzled by color options with this goggle - Barracuda's competition series is all about functionality.
The Bottom Line
Barracuda's Medalist Fog Resistant Goggles will solve your swim goggle fit issues, while also providing a comfortable, fog-free swim. These high quality USA made goggles mean less time fidgeting with equipment malfunction and more quality swim time. Whether for recreation, fitness, training or competition, the Medalist Fog Resistant will give you a much clearer perspective on improving your strokes.
