It's finally here - the 2016 swim season for kids! Have you made your swim goggle selection for your little one yet?
Swim goggles for kids need to solve several problem:
2016 presented a new opportunity for the Frogglez Swim Goggles line - we wanted to not only provide the Worlds most comfortable swim goggles but also the Worlds most functional and leak resistant swim goggles for kids!
So, Frogglez goggles are of course comfortable because the patented neoprene strap design glides over hair rather than pull it out, but Frogglez goggles also are incredible water leak-resistant! The Frogglez strap keeps the swim goggles from moving around preventing gaps from forming were the water usually leaks into! What does this mean? Frogglez goggles are incredibly water leak resistant!
Now for adjustments....swim goggles for kids are usually made with painful rubber straps that pull out hair and can be nearly impossible to adjust. Frogglez goggles have a super easy Velcro adjustment on the side as well as a stretchy silicone ring that perfectly adapts to most head sizes. What does this mean for you? Simple, Frogglez Goggles are incredibly easy to adjust for kids and kids can even put them on all by themselves!
So, go ahead and take the hassle out of swim goggles and get your kids the swim instructor preferred goggles, Frogglez goggles!
The head circumference determines the size strap you will want to use as well as if you will want to use any silicone extension rings.
This is how you measure head circumference:
Average head circumference for CHILDREN is 19 - 21.5 inches
Average head circumference for ADULTS is 21.75 - 22.5 inches
The best width of the goggles will be determined by the width of the head and the space between the eyes. This varies dramatically and is the reason why so many different goggles exist on the market. There is not one perfect goggle, only the one that fits your face best. Frogglez come in 2 sizes to accommodate the vast majority of faces and are designed so that you can attach the strap to almost any goggle should you find one that fits your face perfectly.
Most goggles will either leak at the far edges on the side of the face due to being too wide or right next to the bridge of the nose if there is not enough support yet for the sealing edge.
Frogglez are designed to put gentle pressure in the sealing edge of the face where the goggles tend to leak providing a superior fit. This seal is best if no extension rings are used.
Measuring the distance between the temples gives a good estimate on which goggle size will fit best.
SMALL GOGGLES: 4 inches or less
MEDIUM GOGGLES: 4+ inches
HALF MASK: 4.5+ inches (does not work well without a bridge between eyes)
These innovative rings allow for the increase in size of all Frogglez Goggles! Adding an extension ring is easy and also makes attachment to other goggles simple.
