How annoying is it when your goggles or face shield fogs up? You know when the temperature and the humidity are just right to produce that nice layer of fog on your goggles that comes back about 5 seconds after you clean it off?

Well now there’s a product that claims to keep the fog off your goggles for at least 8 hours. It’s called FogShield Sport, manufactured by Bausch & Lomb. They look like handwipes and they cost 2 bucks per application. The wipes are made of a specific concotion of chemicals that combine to form the perfect anti-fogging agent. Dr. Jay Kunzler is the director of the department of Polymer Chemistry for Bausch & Lomb: “FogShield Sport works through a unique formula that redistributes moisture, which continuously creates an invisible layer of protection from fog.” Added John Stewart, general manager, Vision Accessories, Bausch & Lomb: “There’s a solution for staying warm, a solution for staying dry, but there haven’t been many solutions for keeping goggles fog-free. FogShield Sport provides an easy-to-use, affordable anti-fog system to help prevent fogging that starts working immediately to provide clear vision. Since the product has proven extremely effective in anti-fog protection for firefighters and hazmat professionals in industrial environments, we believe it will be effective for skiers, snowboarders, paintballers and scuba divers.”
