My son shoots saturday in his 2nd meet, supposed to gave 2-6 inches sniw. What is best way to keep safety glasses from fogging over and clear?

You need air circlulation between his face and the glasses. I pinched my nose pads a little closer to make my glasses stand a bit higher on my face as it also moved my glasses away from my face to allow more air to circulate.

Anti fog cleaner also helps if you do not want to adjust the glasses.

Don't wait until it's your squad up to go outside.Stand ouside at least a squad before yours,let everything adjust to the temperature outside.Breathe through your mouth,not nose,keeps warm breath away from glasses.Hey,don't laugh,I've tried them all,each works a little,put it all togehter it might solve the problem.

Chad.... Quick, easy, and effective: Mark an "X" on both the inside and outside of the lenses with a bar of soap. Clean with a soft rag. Lenses will NOT fog up, I guarantee it... Dan Thome (Trap2)

I second the use of "Cat Crap". It really works! The other suggestion of keeping the glasses further from your face is something I always try to do that works pretty good as well.

The soap and cat crap do work for the fogging but the best is keeping the glasses away from the skin. The Decot HYWyde design is really good for that. Also wearing a hat with a good size bill or brim helps keep the water from hitting the lenses although if taken too far the bill can get in the way of seeing the targets.

Eliminate the source of the moisture..... use unscented stick anti-perspirant on your face / upper cheekbones / forehead to stop perspiration and the fogging. Try a little tiny bit under your eye at HOME so you can wash it off if you have any reaction to it. If not then put some on your fingertips and rub in on all placed covered by your shooting glasses.

I use rain-X all the time and have never had an issue. Just make sure it's had enough time to set up, otherwise it won't work properly. Never tried the Anti-Fog version, just the standard stuff.

Ive had the same problem, i shoot with wrap around glasses, so i went and bought a pair with a more flat lens,(from midway usa) this cured 90% of my fogging, here is a pic, you dont need to spend a lot, just get a pair that will allow air past your face and eyes.

If you got Randolph Glasses use their lens cleaning cloth, it has a material in it to prevent fogging, normally you get fogging coming into where it is warm, not going out in the cold.

I raced dirt bikes for years all through the winter and fogging goggles was always a problem. Cat Crap is probably the best but old style foaming shaving cream like Barbasol works too.
