Default Fogging glasses

So when i snowboard i like to wear sunglasses because i dont really like the way goggles fit so anyway... I also wear a thick bandana around my face (I spend my summers in places where the temp hits 110 everyday so im a bit of a P**sy when it comes to cold). Its really comfortable but ill have my glasses on for all of about 30 seconds and my glasses are fogged beyond being able to see,, any suggestions on how to prevent this?

Wear goggles?!?

Honestly the issue is that a bandana doesn't seal around your nose, so when you breath it hits your glasses. Even the best anti-fog coatings aren't going to be able to deal with that. Also, doesn't the wind bother your eyes? Have you tried on LOTS of goggles?

I was gonna suggest going to a dive shop and getting some heavy duty ani-fog stuff, but I think Poutanen might be right about it not working so great, but might be worth a try if your set on no goggs.
Or try a different face warmer thing.

Honestly just go try on a bunch of pairs. If you wear a helmet, bring it with you and try them on with the helmet. There's no reason to spend big $$$ either. The pair I use most often are a budget pair of Smiths with a plain orange lens and they were about $30.

The more expensive ones do have nicer padding, but you can find them on sale all over the place...

Yeah, get a new pair of goggles. Sunglasses are okay on sunny warm days. For the most part I don't use them until late spring days.

There is a anti fog spray or paste called Cat Crap and it works awesome and it's within $5-$10. Also open the bottom of your face cover to let the warm breath out the bottom rather then pushing it up towards your glasses. That should help you out until you can save up and find a nice pair of goggles. Goggles are key.

Where did you see cat crap. I used it in the late 90's early 00's but haven't seen any around for a decade. It did work awesome. I assumes they went under or something. Weird how shops at least in BC stopped carrying any antifog paste, maybe to sell more goggles or lenses?
