Fogging in the woods

Well, I was out playing woodsball yesterday. It was about 80 degrees and 100% humidity, typical Kentucky summer weather. Everybody's goggles stayed fogged. My whole strategy was to try to finish the game quickly before my goggles fogged which always was about a minute into the game.

Would thermal lenses work even in this amount of humidity? It would be worth it to see.

Thanks!

Oh, I didn't mention that we had the paintball type cleaner\ anti-fog spray. We anti-fogged our goggles after every match and they still were fogging.

It really stinks when you can't see your opponents 30ft. away in sunshine.

I put a thermal lens in my jt mask and it helped a lot. It will still fog up but it will take a lot longer and not as bad, I hear that a thermal lense and a fan will stop all fogging.

better lens / mask

i use a vforce morph (uses same lens as profiler) and it NEVER fogs. vforce has the best lenses as far as clarity goes.

jt proflex / flexes also have good thermal lenses (pros use those and profilers alot)

but if your cheap, there is a gel type substance on ebay for fogging that works great.

i have a smaller mask that doesnt trap the air that i breath that makes it fog... that way it doesnt really fog all that bad, even though its a cheap mask.

Try goolgling "Fogtech". This stuff rocks and doesn't damage your lenses at all.

Thermal lens and fans, best way to go.

Anti fog spray only works good if you leave it on, instead of wiping it all off. It absorbs the moisture in the air and if you don't leave it on there is nothing there to absorb the moisture.
