Question Foggy Goggles - is there a cure?

Hello,

Are there really such things an anti fog goggles that really work?

On a very cold day, I put on my Bula face mask - it rides high on my face and my goggles almost contact it.

Problem is, when I breath though the nose piece, somehow warm air gets into my goggles and causes fogging. Not just fogging, the condensation turns to ice. I cannot see while going down the hill. I have to take off my goggles and at speed, my eyes water, and I still cannot see. Or I get snow in my eyes which is worse.

Any help here?

Thanks,

V

well facemasks almost always cause fog becuase you are throwing hot air right under the goggles, i dont even think its possible for something not to fog like that. your gogs shouldnt be fogging without a mask though..

Put toothpaste in the inside of your googles and make sure you get it all cover then simply wipe off! Wa La defogger

The mask I wear (the combo clava that you can find in just about every ski shop) has holes for the mouth and a slit for the nose that helps alleviate this problem.

The only time I get condensation from my breath in my goggles is when I am panting very heavily and very quickly.

I have a pair of ~$60 smith goggles and I don't ever take them off after I start my runs for the day until I get lunch at the lodge. I don't have fogging problems with them at all.

I bought an anti-fog spray at canadian tire and it did the trick. You can breath on them and they won't fog up at all. Try any automotive store

Or just wear your bandana a little lower. I had the same thing happening to me where the condensation inside my goggles froze and the only way to make my goggles useful again was to go to the chalet and stick 'em under the hand-dryer until I could be sure there was no more moisture inside. It sucked, and it had everything to do with my bandana. That aside, if I had to choose between goggles and face-mask I'd choose goggles, so be prepared to make that same choice.

shaving cream works too, i use this on the viser of my motorcycle helmet, even when its super cold with all the vents taped shut, still no fog, you just put the shaving cream on, and wipe it right back off

Goggle fan

Saw a new add while I was up as snowshoe, some dude was advertising a goggle fan that would fit 90% of the goggles on the market, supposidly it has 3 settings, on/off, and an auto setting that pops on and off depending on if it detects a certain level of humidity.
Should work well. I know its not the same I roll with a goggle fan in one of my paintball masks. I willlook it up man see if I can hook ya up.

Holla !
