Default goggle fogging

My goggles fog so much, every run almost. Would sunglasses fog more or less than goggles?

here a trick i used. Go to you local scuba store and buy a quality grade defogger for scuba goggles usually 8 to 10 dollars and your problem should be solved.

Yes. Spend 300 bucks on Smith goggles with the built in fan.

300 for a pair of goggles better have some speakers and a speedometer for that type of money.

Their website has them for $190, does it eliminate fogging? I'm assuming it runs of a battery, how long does the battery last in these

OR ignore the troll and make sure any new goggles you're buying make a good seal around your face. Bonus points for anti-fog coating on the lens.

Also, don't fiddle with your goggles constantly. For the longest time I had the cheapest pair of Bolle goggles that was literally a sheet of plastic in front of my eyes. No fog whatsoever.

I drive for a living and wear sunglasses 10-12 hours a day. I have some very nice sunglasses. I have become a sunglasses snob. So, when I started snowboarding it was very hard for me to not wear them. I started thinking though if I did a face plant I would I have glass and metal embedded in my face. I bought a pair of goggles and quit wearing sunglasses after that.

Don't take your goggles on and off. They will never stop fogging. Don't touch the inner lens or clean it either. It will rub off the anti fog treatment.

I went out without my face ask today and no fogging problems, minutes after I put it back on it started fogging again. So I figured out the cause, but now my face is cold, what are my options now? Would one of those face bandanas cause the fogging to? Sucks to solve a problem only to create a new one.
