was wondering if anybody knew of a product or whatever. naturally they get all fogged up when you come into the clubhouse from shooting, but i also have them fog up while outside. i've tried some prepackaged wipes but they didn't work that well. i heard there's a spray you used and wipe on that works better. anybody have any suggestion on how to kep lenses from steaming up during a round

thanks

I tried a whole bunch of different methods to keep my glasses from fogging. Here's the best one I found. This is a solid gel type product intended for hockey visors. It's a little stronger than the sprays/wipes. See link......

Make sure that you ask the manufacturer of your lenses first (i.e. decot, etc), because I know of at least one person who ruined his shooting lenses with an anti-fog product.

To prevent fogging you have to allow air flow around the lenses. Blinders and hats pulled down low are major contributors to fogging.

The very best I have found is also the easiest and simplest. Take a bar of soap (any kind will work) and mark an "X" on both the inside and the outside of the lenses and clean with a soft cloth. No more fogging! Works on bathroom mirrors as well... Dan Thome (Trap2)

A little shaving cream applied (NOT Gels) also works well when buffed off with as clean, soft rag. Maybe the same reason why soap works? But I agree with Curvy, I'd check with the manufacturer first.

Mixer has the best solution. Decot HyWydes up off the face, keep the air circulation going.

Why put anything on the lense that may impair optical performance?

Pull your glasses off before walking into a warm room. Seems to work pretty good most of the time.

One of the cheapest ways that I found to keep glasses fog free is to melt a little Neutrogena soap into a plastic 35mm film container and keep it in your shooting bag with a 100% cottom piece of t-shirt and a little dab with do ya. Plus it lasts almost forever. I used it when I played racquetball and never had a problem. It's the glycerine it that does the trick.

PS - I've tried a lot of the so called fog free cleaners and non of them work as well as this.

Rain-X contains some nasty alcohol. If your lenses are close enough to your face to fog up they're close enough for the alcohol to do a number on your eyes.

Clip your eyebrows short, pinch the center piece of your glasses together until they rest on the bridge of your nose, exhale downward through your mouth.

Just one last suggestion. I have lots of kids that have to wear prescription lenses in the 4-H. We got some stuff called "Cat Crap" that has prevented any fogging problems so far. THey use it on both their regular glasses and the safety glasses that they wear over them. I put the link at the top.
