"TYR is a reputable brand. Not sure if it's just the black ones, in that they may be made with different materials than the traditional clear models, but the goggle repeatedly split on the nose. Could be disastrous during a long OWS race. Will never buy another pair of these and do not recommend them to anyone. Will be going with the AquaSphere Kaiman, and we'll see how that goes."PsyTri

Quality of Construction

This is my 3rd pair. Each pair, the nose piece split. I rinse the goggles in fresh water after each use (almost exclusively pools), and keep stored in a goggle case. Treated them very gingerly given prior experience with the first 2 pair.

Fit

Fit fine

(4)

Comfort

Very comfortable - that was the selling point for me.

(3)

Adjustability

Easy to adjust to my size

Value

Given that they expired after such a short period of use (21.41 miles over 4 months and 27 swims), I'd consider the value quite poor.

(5)

Appearance

The mirrored lenses, while functional, also look cool, especially with the black straps and frames

(3)

Customer Service

They offered to take a look at them and consider a refund.

(3)

Performance

No problems while they were functional.
