|linvillegorge||My Fishbowls have never fogged up, but I will say that the optic quality compared to Smith sucks balls. It's like the anti-fog they use on them is all fish eyed or something. Nowhere near as clear as Smith.|

I have the red sensor and it's good for almost everything. Would like to try the Blue sensor for even worse light, but my Smith IOX are super finicky and fog up like a sauna window unless i went OCD with drying them the last time worn; so every time i bring them i wonder if they're going to f' up my day...
Because of that, i'd rather spend the $ on Yellow Von zipper lenses; my fishbowls have NEVER fogged on me and cost less than half the price.

|neni||Couldn't decide in the shop, if the Smith red or blue sensor lens is better although staring into the thick fog outside for half an hour so I got both. And I'm still unsure which one to take when it's flat light day; tend to swap them during the day. Seems to me that the blue gives a tad more contrast to the snow when it's cloudy n grey but the red is a tiny tad better when you're actually right in the fog. Well, actually both are not overly satisfying in fog for ny eyes. Maybe I should give yellow a try next time. Interestingly, the guy in the shop here swear by orange|
