    Foggy Sunglasses

    Any tips on how to prevent sunglasses from fogging up?

    I know I should be wearing glasses, but after 1/10 of the way into my ride the glasses fog up and impair my vision. Does any body have any tips on how to prevent this?

    Thanks

    I went to my local sporting goods store and got some anti-fog spray for snow goggles, comes with a little wipe and all, works GREAT. Any shop should have a anti-fog treatment spray

    I used to have the same problem. Finally got a pair of Adidas evil eye halfrim glasses; I now only have foggy glasses when I really sweat a lot. Wasn't cheap though.

    I find that wearing a headband or bandana helps. I wear halo stuff and it helps keep moisture off the face

    Crazy as it sounds, run some Fog-X on them. The same stuff that you put on the inside of a car windshield to help keep it clear. It works wonders and is safe on any and all lenses I've ever tried it on. I even use it on my motorcycle helmet's visor (which I'm breathing almost directly onto) and it keeps it nice and clear. Give it a shot.

    bumping this thread, has anyone actually tried to carefully drill vents into the top of the glasses?

    I got pair of Remington shooting glasses as my riding glasses.
    They rarely get foggy.

    Just check the specs, most glasses should say if they have anti-fog or fog-resistance lenses.

    +1 on riding faster! Have you tried spitting on them? It works for scuba goggles
    60% of the time ......it works all the time

    I live in MT so most of my rides tend to have long climbs and long downhills. I just take my sunglasses off and hang them on my pack's sternum strap while I'm climbing.

    I've also replaced a pair of sunglasses with a new pair that sits off the face a little more. They can still fog, but not as much as the previous ones.

    I bought the Oakley Split Jackets and they fogged up bad while riding so then I bought a pair of the Oakley Jawbones with the vents in the lenses and they work perfectly for cycling. I can also switch the lenses from clear, yellow, orange, and regular.

    ^^^ I recently got a pair of those too (something like $8 or $9 from Amazon) and have been very surprised they haven't fogged up at all. I usually have a problem with fogging with most other glasses.

    The other thing I really liked about the Remington is that one lens option they have is a very light tint -- it takes the edge off the brightness, but the tint is not super noticeable (great when I turn onto shady back roads).

    I see someone has already mentioned spitting on them if out on a ride... that is on the inside of the lense, then wipe dry or the toothpaste thing works.

    OR you can just ride slower, I've found this helps too. Sometimes you may even have to stop
