TYR Polarized Special Ops 2.0

The draw: Glare-defeating optics

Sighting becomes easier and peripheral vision opens up with the Special Ops 2.0. These provide a more mask-like feel than other goggles in this roundup.

The polarized lenses block any reflection that might otherwise disrupt your swim rhythm.
