If your goggles are not a double pane thermal lense then try fog-doc or a similar paintball or scuba anti-fog, they work good. Cleaning with spit is the next best thing. You can use the anti-fog on a thermal lense, but you need to be careful applying it on the inside.

The lenses are definitely double paned. I paid $165 for these goggles. They're upper end on quality. I put some Cat Crap anti-fog on them. That definitely helped. The moisture still builds up though. I'll go look at helmets when I get a chance.

Check out the Bern Baker. Fits great with the I/O's and are a dope helmet as well.

This is a great idea and really fucking cheap to try. Just be sure to stick the foam to the helmet and not the goggles. To get foam just look for some of that peal-and-stick door gap sealer foam tape at the hardware store. Tons of thicknesses and stiffness-es to choose from.

By the way. Smith helmets are made to allow the air to flow through their goggles. I have had zero fogging with my I/O's and my Hustle.

This ^ I found a photo from some random dude on the net wearing a Smith Holt (which I also wear). You can clearly see the vents on the front.

DO NOT DO THIS!
Rubbing on the inside of the lense with a t-shirt will wipe away the anti-fogging coating and make fogging a constant problem.

Its probably your face mask. I have had fogging problems since I can remember with at least 3 different pairs of goggles. I've tried the Serius half mask, a north face neck gaiter, and a bandana and they all fogged my goggles. I learned they were all sending my breath up into the goggles and making them to fog. Tried cat crap, fog cloths and spray too.

Last season I picked up one of those under armour masks and the problem dissappeared. Also, as someone else mentioned, DO NOT rub the inside of your lens.

If I don't open my helmet vents and keep my face mask off I will fog any goggle when riding hard.
