Does anyone use bungee straps for goggles?

I always struggle with the straps of my Swedish goggles so I thought it might be easier to adjust my goggles with bungee straps. The problem is that I need to order them from the US because for some reason I can't find them in Europe so I was curious if anyone has experience with bungee straps.

I like the bungee cords, they last longer and are easy to adjust. I usually use Tyr Rocket Sockets in practice and with the normal straps on them I can't dive in without losing them. With the bungee NO PROBLEM!

Thanks. Those were the two reasons I am interested in them because the original straps of swedish or rocket socket goggles break easily and aren't easy to adjust.

Will they fit in the small holes in the swedish goggles or socket rockets?

I had no problem with the Rocket Sockets. It just took a little patients.

I love my bungees! It makes the goggles so much easier to adjust. Make sure you buy real bungees, though, not the silicon ones. I had a pair of silicon ones and the toggle cut right through them to the point that they were almost broken when I noticed them on meet day and readjusted. I think that's much less likely to occur with real bungees.
