Running Hot, Goggle fog!!!!
For body temp I naturally run hot. All I wear is a shell jacket/pants and a long sleeve base layer as well as base layer bottoms. Head wear i rock a helmet with no beanie. My base layers are just the thin Burton type maybe medium thickness a little like a t shirt material maybe a little thicker. I sweat a lot when I ride still even with vents open on the jacket.

Due to all this I get goggle fog starting at the top of my lens from the heat coming from my forehead.:thumbsdown:

Hw can I battle this cause it really sucks!! I have the Anon Comrades so it isnt due to cheap goggles either.:dunno:

I would eliminate the sweating. I sweat a bit when riding but not bad. Does your helmet have adjustable vents?!? Worth it methinks...

Also what do you wear around your neck/face? If I'm in the trees/powder and working hard I've got to open my jacket a bit to let heat escape. I think it's all about managing your body temp. Wear the right clothes so that on the lift you zip everything up and are just right, open vents on the way down to keep from overheating.

just my $.02 of course...

I have the RED mutiny helmet. It does have vents and I keep them open at all times.

I do not wear anything around my neck or face as I run hot enough as it is now.

The only solution is to stop riding around Vancouver!!! lol Too much moisture in the air!

Smith makes a google with a fan in it, my GF used to use them with glasses and they worked really well. Used a single AAA battery that would last a couple days I think.

Does your jacket and pants have zippers to open? Also, check out Terramar SilkSkins. There are different styles, the ones I use top and bottom are as thin as panty hose. They do a great job of keeping me cool and comfortable. I too sweat easy. Good luck.

does your helmet have vents that let air escape above the goggles or is it solid there? I would assume it is blocked becuase most helmets are solid there (ones that are not useually advertise it) Bern helmets for instance have no venting over the goggles where smith and giro do on some of thier models.

I also run hot, I just take my helmet off on the lift and let myself air out :P

I've never seen the Mutiny up close. It says there are "hidden vents"... I sure can't see them on the website.

I wear glasses so I really can't have fogging. This season I am using a Giro Seam with the "stack vent". It's an always open vent at the front of the helmet that lines up with the top vent of my goggles (VZ Feenoms). Once in motion, zero fogging.

Have you tried any other helmets?

Lol I've had this same problem for years! I'm the fattest sweatiest bastard on the mountain. I swear I start sweating before I even start riding. I've had the turbo fans and they do a pretty good job but obviously that won't work unless you are changing your goggles. I switched to the Smith I/O's last season and they've been money and haven't fogged once, they are hands down the best goggles I've ever owned and I've owned just about all of them in my time. That again doesn't solve your problem though. One thing I did find that I put into my Scott Fix goggles was an aftermarket fan that has an automatic humidity sensor that turns them on as soon as it senses extra moisture. Scott markets them for the Snowmobile and motocross scene but they're actually just a rebrand of this: Eliminate Fog in any goggle with the Haber Eliminator Automated Fan

This works pretty well, is relatively cheap if you look around and should fit your Anon's no problem.

The Smith I/OX Elite Turbo Fans are pretty sick but damn $275.00:(

My jacket and pants do have zippers and i do open the pit vents as well as sometimes the leg vents too.

The Mutiny helmet vents enter in just under the brim and let air into the helmet to help cool your head. I don't feel a whole lot of air flow though. although I do have a lot of hair right now compared to before.
