Hey everyone, I like to be able to wear my sunglasses under my full-face helmet, but have a horrible problem with them fogging up. I did a quick search on amazon and found dozens of anti-fog products.

Does anyone recommend one that they have used that is both easy to apply and last a long time?

Nothing will last along time. Cat Crap has worked OK for me.

Do a search on Webbikeworld.com. They have tested quite a few products.
Sadly, most don't work all that well.

.

For a cheap and simple solution, here's what I do.....


Wipe glasses with neat washing up liquid and wipe off with kitchen roll/kitchen towel so that it leaves a fine coating of the washing up liquid on the lenses - the moisture can't stick to the soap so lenses stay clearer longer....

I use the same product on sun glasses, face shields, and windscreens. Fogtech.

Might try the same drops that you use to keep snorkeling face masks from fogging up.

Cat Crap fan here. You have to take time and polish it in.

Wow, thanks everyone for the suggestions. I am going to try some stuff I have for snorkeling masks, and if that doesn't work, give cat crap a try.

Why don't people think of this and build it into glass these days. I don't know anyone that likes glass to fog, yet it is an issue that one could solve at the manufacturing level.

I used to use lemon juice on my car windscreen. Not only did it stop fogging but it also stops frost and ice building up on the windscreen too. Never tried it on sunglasses though!
