The unfortunate bottom line is that you need to be very gentle in terms of cleaning and storage. Nothing hard or abrasive should ever contact your lens. Blotting is only better than rubbing in that it typically requires a gentler contact and less surface abrasion. Also, after repeated use even microfiber cloths will retain particles of debris from the "water" they are dealing with. These can then act as abrasives.
All of this might sound a bit defeatist. It is not. These coatings/films are a huge improvement over untreated polycarbonate, but it is important to realistically go beyond marketing hype and understand the real world limitations.

Hoping for less fogging this next trip
I wore prescription sunglasses the first few times snowboarding and suffered a lot of fogging. Then I bought a pair of goggles that go over spactacles which was better but still not ideal. I have now had my vision corrected by laser surgery so I am hoping for more improvement. I think my biggest problem is sweating inside the goggle area since they were large to cover the spactacles. Next goggles I buy I am thinking minimise the area coovered by goggles, less sweat inside the goggles.
I also wonder if it would be better to have open vents instead of foam covered vents on the top of the goggles?

|boarderaholic||Is the lens material made out of polycarbonate? If it is, that would be why they scratch so easily. There is not much you can do but be very gentle with the lenses and use the microfibre cloth to handle it if at all possible.|

While i am asking questions... How about safe/correct storage in the microfiber pouches. What do you do with the strap? I always thought that the inside of the lens is sacred and should never come into contact with anything other than the nipples of heavenly angels. And since goggle straps and their clips are considerably rougher than that, i dont want the goggle strap getting up in there...

I have 4 pairs of Oakley Crowbars and a pair of Oakley Airwaves...
The Airwaves get abused that is for sure, and i have the added problem of heat inside the goggles from the electronics and battery...
They do fog up on a few occasions, and i wipe the arse out of the outside of the lens and never have any issues with scratching, but i would never wipe the inside...!!!
My biggest problem, is remembering not to put up on my helmet, and after 2 seasons of using them, i still do this on occasion, and they fog in seconds...!!! The crowbars never did this so quickly, they would fog, but it would take minutes...
My Stepson uses Anons, and his never fog, neither do my g/f's Crowbar and they both put there up on there helmet... Strange...
