ya i had a thread about my io fogging. i sold them to my friend and he used them one day and said he had no problem at all. im going tomorrow with him so ill see how they work for him. both my lenses fogged.
It happens when I leave my goggles on my helmet with wet gloves sitting next to them. I now take them off every day and store them in their bag. I also never leave them in my truck over night anymore. It seems like they fog when I leave them out in the cold over night.....
Mine had been inside for 5 or so days. However I didn't take them out of the pouch. But I didn't think I should have to. I was spring skiing in 45+ degree temps last time out. Not like I was getting face shots all day or anything...
I'm pretty disappointed especially since both are my lighter shade lenses.
509--- let us know what happens when you go out with your buddy.
At first I just thought I might have been running hot today or something but I don't think so. Even if so.... it shouldn't make the lenses fog between the seal.
The little vent on the lenses will sometimes let moisture in (opposite of it's job ) sometimes it corrects and sometimes the lens is garbage from that point on. I've only experienced this on a single lens on my old Phenoms, replacement lens worked perfect, no problems with either of the lenses on my IO/Xs.
yeah, pretty sure it's the "porex filter". I talked to smith and they just gave me more dysfunctional lenses. Most of my porex lenses worked in warmer, sunny conditions...except one that fogged even then. Bottom line was I couldn't trust them (nothing worse than being stuck with foggy goggles on a pow day), so I sold my smiths and won't be going back until they get rid of porex.
