Want to ruin your day on the snow? Fog up your goggles and then struggle trying to unfog them. There are ways to avoid fogging, and here are a few points to consider:
How is your heat and moisture going to escape your eyebox? Is there good built-in ventilation? Does your hat or helmet interfere with it? Is the foam and padding around your goggles sealing up flush with your face? Is there any space through which snow (moisture!) could enter?
Behavior on the Mountain
What are you doing with your goggles between runs? Popping them up on your forehead and inadvertently exposing the interior area to more snow (moisture!) or the steam rising up off your head (moisture!)? Do you rub the inside of your lens, and by doing so add moisture to the inside of lens and wear away the protective wax-coating which most goggles come with?
Do you store your goggles in a safe, dry place where they won’t be deformed under a pile of other ski gear? Did you spill your apres-drink into your goggles and then leave it to dry? Do you clean the outside (and honestly, lenses these days are so easy to remove that you should clean the inside too) of your goggle lens so they’ll be fresh and clean for tomorrow, or just let them be, hoping they’ll magically clean themselves?
Cleaning your Insert
When needed, every insert of ours can be easily removed for cleaning. It’s typically a straightforward move to remove it from the goggle, though if you need any help we’re glad to talk you through it. Once removed, use the microfiber cloth and special lens-cleanser we’ve given you to clean them. Spray both sides of each lens, and wipe until the lenses are clear. Never wipe a dry lens.
After cleaning your insert, we recommend reapplying an anti-fog treatment which helps keep your insert clear and fog-free while you’re using it. For $10, we sell a bottle of the best anti-fog treatment we’ve come across. Finally, once your insert is cleaned and de-fogged, do your best to put it back into the goggle without smudging the lenses with your fingers.
Nearly every goggle comes from the manufacturer with a wax coating on the inside of the goggle lens specifically intended to protect the lens and reduce fogging. You should always treat this part of the lens with care.
