ridinbend Definitely got to dry then completely. I have had similar experiences with the between the lenses damp fog from not pulling them out from the day before. That's the worst.

freshy I like my EG2'S with the yellow lens. On those overcast days it's like molly for your eyes. I seriously forget it's miserable out till I take them off.

Yep, totally right. VZ lens is kinda Walmart quality... but they just don't fog, even if you try.

The Smith are super clear and much more durable, but if you didnt dry them to the bone, they'll fog and ruin your day. They cost me like 3 days.... I was "this close" to throwing them off the lift one day... i only didnt to protect the environment

Oh i dont run that hot, but do sweat... and the Smith are ok on any single day. Problem is only after a wet day... if i was anything less than perfect when drying them, next trip up they'd hopelessly fog up between the lenses right away, for the rest of the day. Like one day i got a ride from the mtn and forgot to take them out to dry, next time up it was totally fogged. Another day, i did dry them, but they went in a bag with gloves and stuff which wasnt perfectly dry... Next time: fog.

Yeah those were all my fault or at least my negligence...... but I put the Von Zippers in the same bag, treat them just the same, except the VZ i just need to air dry them. The Smith i have to put them near a heater at mild warm temp... and hope i got all the moisture out or else they fog.

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
