Default Goggles that wont fog?

I have 5 pairs of goggles and they all fog. Dragon Demon Vonzipper Ryder and Uvex. Are there any goggles that dont fog EVER?

I think the outer fog is from breath going up the facemask.

Any helpful advice?

What I do... and I have uhm... eg2 electrics.. is just make sure the facemask, bandana, whatever is letting breath out of the top...

for outside fog all you need is some gloves with a squeegee on the finger to be honest... I think with anything there will be a little fog, it's just that you don't want fog inside goggles.. the outside you take care of like I said..

You're gonna hate me for this but you can probably try one run with your goggles in your hand just to let it all vaporize out. Just make sure not to wipe out or it's game over.

As to your original question, naturally try keep the vents open on the goggles, move your face mask down or make a nice opening for air. I have Smith Phenoms and don't really experience fog issues until I start breathing really hard. If you do shop for a new pair of goggles, anti-fog coating is one thing but check for the differences in ventilation between the goggles. Let me know if any of that helps! Wish I knew a specific brand to buy. My friend keeps telling me he hears nothing but good about Oakleys...

Get a facemask that has holes in it around your mouth so that the vapor from your breath can escape to the air instead of going up under your mask.

I had this exact same problem when I tried out an under armour face mask in Utah over new year's. It made my Smith IO goggles fog up like crazy once I started breathing heavily.

My Seirus ultra-clava (which has holes by the mouth) does not have this problem.

All goggles will fog if you do dumb shit to make them fog. Dont wear a bandana or a face mask under your goggles. Just pull it up to your nose like real snowboarders do.

I don't know if you put face mask under your goggles or why you would even want to but I sure don't. I wouldn't even think of breaking that seal.

Some masks make it impossible to NOT have the mask go under the goggle.
