Barracuda Ultimate Fog Resistant Goggles–Initial Review

Last week we published a review of the Barracuda HydroBat Fog Resistant Goggles from Skyline Northwest.  Today, we’re on to the second pair of goggles from Barracuda, the Ultimate Fog Resistant Goggles.  Thanks again to the folks at Skyline Northwest for the test samples.

Background on Barracuda:

Based in Lake Oswego, Oregon, Barracuda Sports Products and Skyline Northwest manufacture an entire line of swimming gear, including these goggles, swim caps, cases, paddles, shampoo and quite a few other items.

Barracuda goggles were created by Dr. John Runckel after he was unable to find goggles that fit well, didn’t leak, and didn’t leave red rings around his eyes.  Dr. Runckel, a dentist, used his experience taking dental impressions to develop a technique to produce goggle frames that allowed for differing bone structures.  These frames don’t use suction and pressure to seal out water, they use the ergonomic design of the goggle to prevent water intrusion.

Next, our initial impressions of the Barracuda Ultimate Goggles.

  1. After finding the Ultimates two years ago, they are the only goggles I use. Try a pair – you’ll love them!
