the best anti-fog mask solution?

Hey all,
I'm not in the best shape at the moment, so I tend to gas out and mouthbreathe. That coupled with humidity, woods or the inside of a building really tests the anti-fog abilities of a mask.

I ran a JT Flex 7 for a number of years, and have been using a Vforce Profiler mask since I won it with Team POG in the '03 or '04 IAO (I can't recall which). Had pretty good results with both, but I can still fog them up on occasion.

I was going through some old gear and came across anti-fog lens applications from the mid-90's. Had forgotten all about those... I should probably order some fogdoc. I'm sure it blows what I have out of the water.

But as far as masks go, is there anything out there today that's just really outstanding? I haven't tried any new ones out in years (though I have an Invert Avatar waiting for me at a teammate's house that was a prize from this year). Note that I do prefer the larger masks. I'm 6'2" with a normal-sized head and don't want my chin sticking out.

Thanks in advance!

FogTech works great as well.

Fogtech is quite good - stops condensation on lenses.
Moto Solutions

I bought a bottle and use it with a VForce Profiler.

However, any such applications are limited if the condensation occurs elsewhere and flows down into the lens. Wearing a good headband is key.

I rock an old *** black Sandana (non-mesh) that I got from one of you guys years ago with a marker. Can't recall what marker it came with, or who from, for that matter.

<-- That's it in my avatar.

For me the profiler has been the best for anti-fog. The few times it did fog up was in pouring rain. I think that with one of the newer anti-fog solutions should help out.

Anything with a thermal lens should be fine. One thing to make sure is that the foam between the layers is properly attached. The inner lens on pretty much all of them is stuck to the outer lens with a thin foam tape. If the seal fails, you get fogging. so make sure the foam is stuck on there good.


One thing about the fog tech that I noticed, is that it only lasts one cycle. If you play heavy, the lens will get wet instead of fogging. If you stop playing for a while and the lens dries. You need to reapply. I don't know if it the same with other anti-fog solutions as Fog tech is the only one I've used.

Yeah, I FogTech between every game. FogDoc pretty much lasts all day. FogTech I use mostly in the summer, and FogDoc in the winter. I keep both in my mask box. Gotta have the right tool for the job.

For me I have had good luck with V-Force masks. I do not like the stock foam and have taken most of it out, I use a nice thick headband along with our team hat and change the headband when wet. I have taken off the visor and sometimes use a JT Vortex fan. I use Fogdoc when needed.

All of these together allowed me to play virtually fog free all of last summer....A fresh clean and scratch free lens is also important.
