Currently swimming with some Water Gear Swedish Pro goggles that are about 11-12 years old. Doesn't look like the design changed any. They work fine in the pool, no leaks, and decently comfortable.

I used to think the same about cycling until I started to do proper cycling workouts. You have to put in more time with a cycling workout than running, but you can get the same results of feeling like you accomplished something when the workout is done.
I currently cycle ...
