What Causes Fogging?

The leading cause to goggle fogging is a product of condensation, resulting in water that collects as fog on a cold surface (lens) when humid air from your body comes in contact with it. In most cases this is from tucking your ski mask under the goggle frame, pushing warm air into your lenses faster. Nowadays dual pane lenses are extremely common and really help to mitigate fogging. Below are a few other ways you can combat fogging.

5 Anti-Fog Suggestions for the Upcoming Season 

 

  • Do not put your goggles on your head, which would channel warm air from your head to the goggle’s lens.

 

  • Be sure to take your goggles off in a warm gondola to let them breathe.

 

  • Try to wear appropriately layered clothing, so that you don't sweat too much

 

  • Spherical Lenses vs. Cylindrical lenses: In terms of fog prevention, spherical lenses are a must. The spherical design creates more volume between the face and the cold outside weather, facilitating airflow, thus decreasing fog.

 

  •  Main Fog Prevention Features to look for: Anti-Fog Coating, Vented Lenses, Dual Lenses, Fans.
