Love the look of the Ride QI, anyone got a report on how it performs goggle-fog wise when you're breathing heavily? Worst thing about facemasks/neck gaiters is the fucking goggle foggery they cause. Having an open bottom should remedy this somewhat but to what extent is the question.

I have had very little trouble with goggle fogging an my UA mask. That said, there are a few things you can do help avoid fogging with any pair of goggles:

(1) Leave the top of your jacket open a bit. Heat rises, and if your neck area is closed up tight, the warm air will go right up into your face. The disparity in temps can be a factor in fogging. Let some

(2) DO NOT keep taking your goggles on and off. Put them on your face, and leave them there. Also, put them on before you go outside, not after.

(3) Breath through your mouth, not nose.

(4) Do not wipe internal fog off with your glove, fingers, shirt, etc. This will remove any anti-fog spray that is on them. Instead, just let them "dry out" on their own (inside).

(5) Properly use anti-fog spray if needed.

(6) Wear a mask (I.e. UA) that allows heat to disappate all over, as oppose to a think, unbreathable mask, that really only allows heat to escape around your eyes.

If you do all of the above, then you shouldn't have much trouble with fogging. *shrugs*

Tried everything you said there sedition and nothing works for me. Except the breathing through the mouth. There is no way I am going to make myself uncomfortable in that manner purposely. I'm a snowboarder, not a scuba diver

Even then, I have difficulty breathing through the UA Hood. Like I have said before though, this is most likely due to my really large head and flat face. The hood is really tight on me and it compresses my nose.

With that said, I still love my UA hood. The thing keeps me super warm and dry even though I am wearing a helmet over it. No wind gets through at all my face stays nice and warm. The only working solution I found to the goggle fogging problem is uncover my nose. I mean, I have really good anti-fog goggles and it only briefly fogs, but it happens every time I breath out so it might as well just stay fogged. Luckily, my goggles block some of the wind from hitting my nose so it isn't a huge deal.

I think the Ride Qi would be a perfect solution to that problem since it isn't a warm mask. I can just wear it over my hood to give my nose some coverage without being extremely warm.

Now only if someone would post a damn review of the Ride Qi so the rest of us can buy one before the season ends.

The other thing you can try, albeit more expensive, is goggles with electric fans n them.

Forced ventilation in your goggles is more of a bandaid solution. If you can get at the root cause of the problem which is to direct the hot air away from your face then that shouldn't be required.

ok i went to do my report on the ride qi's. i didnt wear it at first cause it was 30 degrees so that night i got to try it out. it is not the warmest but it keeps your face from freezing. this mask stays on your face and you dont have to worry about it. i love this thing cause i didnt get hot and it is breathable. 9 out of 10
