    Question Goggles

    Question for the hood ,

    Brotherhood that is. Do any of you have goggles or glasses/eye- protection that "never" fogs up in all your training and street events? If so, what are they? I have tried so many different "FOGGLES" it is ridiculous. Some I have been a little disappointed and some VERY, and some were just "OK". I have yet to find a pair that DO NOT FOG UP at all. I have tried the anti-fog goo on a few pairs with some success. Any good news stories on eyewear bro's? Help us all out here. I may have to get a pair for myself and wrap it for the holidays.

    Be safe.

    Good luck! I have been down the same path as you. Best solution I have found is to fork out the $$$ to buy an "Assault" helmet witht he built-in goggles. There is enough air movement around them that they do not fog up. You just have to endure the harassment from your brothers and sisters for wearing a helmet that makes you look like "Marvin the Martian"!

    I bought a pair of "safety glasses" from Home Depot for about $10. They have not fogged up in the year since I got them. I wear them in addition to my helmet face shield.

    I have a pair of ESS goggles which do fog up regularly. I also have two pairs of safety glasses which I have in my gear at all times. Sure, the goggles look cool but they fog up and usually end up back on the helmet in favor of the safety glasses.

    Hey Jordan, a few ideas for you. On my helmet I have a pair of ESS goggles that have a thermal lense in place of the one that comes with the goggle. The thermal is dual paned as opposed to a single, and can be ordered from ESS to upgrade your existing goggles. I have never had these fog on my during a call, but they have fogged during prolonged training.
    ESS also had a tactical goggle with a small fan in the upper housing. Expensive, but shouldn't fog. I say shouldn't because I haven't used the ESS fan googles, but I do have a pair of goggles from a different manufacturer with a micro fan and they rock. I can't quote the battery life, but I'm guessing 30 hours on AA batteries and no problems fogging ever.
