Cool Fog B Gone?

Adventurous ride into work this morning - it was foggy out, so I had to keep wiping off my visor; but it was cool enough that if I closed my visor, I fogged up from the inside. And if I rode with the visor partially open (so that I could see through both the internal and external fogs), my eyes fogged up.

I know there's not much I can do about my eyeballs, but is there a product that one can put on the visor to reduce internal or external fogging?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Cindy, Here's a thought for this time of year. When your at a stop crack your visor & wear something around your face. I took an old "Touk" & cut the top out of it. Making it into a kinda turtle neck. Protects my neck & face & also helps Deflect my Breath off the visor. Just my way of coping!
P.S. I use to ski alot and I found most of those antifog products aren't worth the packaging their sold in!

On the inside or outside of the visor? Or both?

I use this stuff from World Optical ,"Anti Fog" .. looks like green grease. Does a great job on glasses and the inside of visors. Likely found online or optical sections of stores.
For the out side I have gloves that have the two fingers on the left hand covered with chamois on the back, but they also sell a "wiper blade" thing that you can attatch to your glove than works as a squeege.

Most times under those conditions I just open the visor up a crack or two, and my helmet has a "breath guard" I use in colder weather.

Rain X

From the Pacific Northwest Riders...

Rain X for the outside (keeps the water beading up so it flows off) and Rain X Anti Fog for the inside.

Buy a pair of motorcycle gloves that have a wiper blade on the left thumb!

Now, see, I've heard about using toothpaste, too. But ya gotta be careful about these toiletries - some bar soaps apparently leave sticky, "non-fresh-feeling" residues. And forget the toothpaste if you're trying to use a paste instead of a gel...

There is/was a laminate product made by a company called Fog City. You wet the inside of the shield, apply the laminate, squeegy, let dry and you're good to go. I used to use the style made for motocross goggles when playing paintball and they worked great. They were called, "Fog City Fog Things"
HERE are ones for streetbike helmets, but it looks like they are the entire shield, and only for specific helmets?? And I can't find the goggle ones anywhere.
Maybe see if a dealer knows where to get them.
