"The anti-fog preparation that offered the best performance was a commercial preparation called AquaSeal Super SeaDrops., provided that a generous quantity is applied.. It was the only product to completely protect against fog under all conditions."

I couldn't find any such tests through my Consumer Reports on-line account.

Get a Respro Foggy. I wear glasses and with the Foggy, no fogging of them or the visor. Simple install, doesn't need to be redone, doesn't mess up your visor with gunk.

You can thank me later.

they suggest Rain-X on the outside of visor

Oddly, I'd never thought of doing that before. Makes sense though. I'll have to give that a try this spring.

In the new issue of MotorCyclist , they suggest Rain-X on the outside of visor and Fog-X inside , and a breath guard.Because clear sight is the most important thing when riding...even over skill!
Careful... seems I read where you're supposed to keep rainX off certain materials.
Read the panels tp be sure it's safe on visor plastic.

One of my previous hobbies was a mil-sim war game (sorta like paintball) for my face protection I'd use http://www.fogtech.ca which works REALLY well. I haven't had to use it for riding yet though, I just use the included breath deflector on my shoei.

i could have sworn i read somewhere that you arrent supposed to use rainX on your visor since theres something in the substance that warps our plastic visors.

dont get me wrong, i LOVE rainX on my car, but it says glass only. visors arent that cheap..

quite a few liquids and different cleaning thingys can damage plastic (still if they say that it's been tested on plastic etc etc), not right then when you apply it, but with time the plastic can weaken or so..
I myself use some liquid (dont remember the name right now) meant to be used on a windshield(glass) on my cheaper helmet.

Idea: shouldn't ski/climbers goggles be made of similar impact-resistant plastic to helmet visors?
IF TRUE... then whatever the ski shops sell might be worth looking into.

I can say that hands down cat crap or whatever else they call it works.

Most of the guys in my unit used it on our sorry ass wiley-x's that fogged up all the time. Just rub it on and I never had to apply it again and we abused those things all the time.

It was good enough in iraq its probably good enough for riding lol

I use the cat crap, and while it does work, it doesn't last for more than a few days. I'm just about out so I guess I need to order some more. What I use is a breath deflector, which came with my helmet, but there is a Respro Foggy also for most all helmets along with the cat crap fog treatment. Read the webbikeworld articles on these and try for yourself. I've also tried the FogCity shield and it worked too, but that's on an old helmet that I don't use much anymore. It seemed like it made the vision a little blurry sometimes, but they try that out too over at wbw.
