Do not Do not Do NOT touch the inside of it, especially with bare fingers, contact alone can damage the anti fog film and the oil on your hands wrecks it completely.

Not after you wiped it off they don't, Einstein.

NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER touch the inside of your goggle lens. You can TRY and blot individual drops dry with the corner of a soft cloth, but you still run the risk of fucking up the VERY delicate anti-fog coating. Once it's off, nothing short of a new lens will make it like new. They make anti-fog treatment stuff like 'Cat Crap' but it lasts for, at most, a day before it needs reapplication. If the inside of your goggles gets wet, take a break and park your goggles in front of a vent or gently warm them near the fireplace.

Airblaster ProAm Airgoggle from Dogfunk.com Note 'anti-fog treated'.

I never knew the coating was so delicate!!! Maybe in the future they will infuse the anti fog coating with the google lense itself.

Directly from the Airblaster 07/08 catalog:

Fog Free: No gimmicks and no coatings to rub off after one use!

They just have really good ventilation so water and water vapor doesn't get in. No need to get on the offensive.

A little late for me, i've wiped the inside with cloths and fingers. Still works fine imo. They should at least put a sticker on the lens telling you not to touch it, i never saw a warning!!

Now someone tells me! I made the mistake of rubbing the inside of a pair of Spy Omegas with the cloth bag it came with an it ended up scratching the inside. Don't know how that happened. Any one know of a good place to get replacement lens?

Makes one wonder what they mean by 'anti-fog treatment' 'fog free' and 'no coatings'... Sounds a lot like the usual corporate say-anything-to-sell-it bullshit.

No need to get offended, it's an internet forum. If you're too sensitive to hack embellished vernacular, there's plenty of others forums to go to.

there's always cat shit. can't say if it works though. best advice is to get a really high quality pair and when the lens gets trashed just replace it.
