Mr.noodleFog is caused by water between the lenses, so dry your goggles off after you use them and you can put the lenses near a heater of fire to dry them out. Also this helped me sooo many times last season IF YOUR GOGGLES ARE FOGGY AT THE MOUNTAIN, USE THE HAND DRIERS IN THE BATHROOM TO DE-FOG THEM
kyle-deckerIf you've got moisture in your lens let it sit in a bowl of rice overnight.
theabortionatorIf you're hiking or working and sweating, pop the top out of your goggles so they can ventilate. You'll still get the protection from the sun but will keep them from fogging up.
It works very well. If you get a change in whether and it starts snowing, raining, or you go for a pow run make sure to pop them back in so you don't get rain or snow inside your goggles.
Also having another lens or two, and a pair of shades is never a bad idea.
The lenses are good not only for if you fog one up but changing conditions, it can go from flat to super bright, to flat pretty quick sometimes. It's nice to have options. Also a pair of shades as a back up is always solid, especially in spring.
TreewellMagnetWhat I've learned:
- There is no smoking gun in the war against fogged goggles (especially when wearing glasses)
DrailWearing a helmet does wonders for avoiding foggy goggles. If I don't have a helmet on for some reason, I'll straight up take the goggles off as soon as I'm in the line for the chairlift and won't put 'em back on till I'm at the top.
simmerscollect some of those "Do Not Eat" packets that come in shoe boxes and other things. microwave these packets for 2-3 minutes (this evaporates any water that may have previously been sucked up by the packets). Put the packets and your lens in a ziploc bag and seal it for 48 hours. This should atraumatically remove much of the water vapor that has accumulated between your lenses and reduce fogging problems.
