And if you have a V-force you can't use warm water. I use microfiber only. Or cold water paper towel.

I'm assuming this is the same for at the field? I hate get hit in the goggles and haven to deal with a murky lens for the rest of the day.

Keep water away from thermal lenses no bueno for them. Like syber said use a clen micro fiber dirty or ones that have been in the wash are not good reason why the ones that ones that have been in the wash are no good is because like he said they can still hold dust or dirt. And because once they go through the wash they loose there softnest so it won't clean as well and may put small scratches on your lenses. You can by micro fibers at do it your self car washes for a 50 cents to a dollar and the really good yellow one

Interesting never had that issue with my Vforce lenses. I don't know of lenses having a "outside protective coating", mine only have the anti-fog on the inside. For dual panes it's all in how you do it. I run water over the outside with out letting it get on the edges. I've not had a dual pane get compromised that way. I carry a 1 gallon pump sprayer with water when I go to the field. I use that to clean paint off the lens. I then shake it dry and use a microfiber cloth to get off any streaks. I also carry several lenses, just in case.
