Swim Goggle Case: Nootca Armor

We chose to offer a more robust goggle case due to the variety of environments your goggles can be subjected to.  My issue is sand.  I’m lucky enough to swim from the beach and there is no getting around tracking sand everywhere once you’re finished for the day.  Sand is no different from the sediment that can collect in the bottom of your backpack or duffel.  Both can provide a perfect opportunity for dirt and grime to collect on your swim goggles. Each scenario leads to the destruction of your goggles clarity and life span.

This case can prolong the life of your goggles.

Inside the case is a soft lining with some water absorption capabilities that will not scratch the lens.  Two air holes allow the moisture to escape.

A big benefit to the case is its size.  It allows for our largest goggle, the 207 and a bike computer or watch to fit inside, while protecting everything. Personally the waterproof outer shell is my favorite feature.  Throw it your bag, on the pool deck, leave on the ground or sandy beach and it stays clean and dry with at wipe.

Nootca Eleven goggle review: Lava Magazine

A review from Lava Magazine: Link

Key phrase in this review that jumped out: "I found that I could see just as well with them as with my larger-framed goggles."

There is a lot more information in this review that reveals real world experience and the thought that goes into designing these goggles.

Swim Goggle Clarity by Nootca

What makes a Nootca goggle different than any other goggle?  Clarity.

The image above is the first Nootca 5 swede lens from the mold during development. The lens was sent to me for approval almost a year ago today.  

The main thing to notice in the image is the straight lines of the paper when looking through the sidewall and front window. These lines will give away any distortion in the lens by wavering or becoming unfocused.  It’s this test that can determine the clarity of the swim goggle.  This lens mold went through another round of polishing before it was approved. 

We have been told the goggle has panoramic vision.  Whether it’s the Nootca 5, eleven or 207 this is our goal.  

Edit:  What does an approved lens look like?
