Does Anti-fog coating work?

Hello guys,
Last winter my Oakley goggles annoyed the heck out of me because they were constantly fogging.
Does any one know if anti-fog coating works?

I've read great reviews about "JAWS Quick Spit Anti-fog spay", but most are for swimming... nothing about cold temperature fogging.
Thanks for the recommends!

I just use home made remedies. Just rub non abrasive toothpaste or shaving cream on the lens and buff it out with a towel or something and it should do the trick.

As far as I know Oakley lenses have an anti-fog coating, I never have a problem with mine unless I don't dry them out completely before storing. I guess the coating can be removed though if you wipe them with abrasive materials. I only ever use my goggle bag to wipe mine, which is what they usually recommend.

That is exactly it!
I wear an UnderArmour Headwear hood under my helmet which also goes over my nose and fogs the goggles when I exhale.

Amazon has the anti-fog spray for around $5 bucks so I guess I'll give it a try...

If you're covering the top or bottom vents it won't matter what you use, they'll still fog.

Yup, if your vents are blocked and you keep sending warm/moist air into the lenses, nothing is really going to help you out. Make sure the goggles don't get blocked by the hood and that your breath is able to go straight out.

Yeap,
Completely understand, but being from Miami I get really cold
I cover my mouth and nose with the UA hood... Strangely, I dont think the vents are being blocked, but I am definitely breathing air up into the goggles.

Thought the anti-fog spray would help...

As was previuosly stated, your Oakleys should have an anti-fog coating on them already. If you managed to wipe it off though, the next best thing I know of for anti-fog is Cat Crap. The stuff just works.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Make sure to get the blue goop in the little plastic cup. The spray stuff ($10 later at some crap hill in the Catskills) doesn't work at all.
