Fog on visor???

13 posts in this topic

What do you do to control fog on your helmets? I like the helmets with a flip up visor but the problem is they always fog up on me. I don't like using goggles because of all the cold air it lets in. I seem to only have problems when its really cold.

I have heard of using fog-x to contol the fogging. Does this work?

Do any of you have heated visors? How well do they work?

Do I have any other options?

The heated Visors are the way to go to "eliminate" the problem but you could try this if you don't want to spend the money. When I used to race, we used to just coat the shield or goggles with Pledge furniture polish. Spray it on and let it sit for a few minutes and then polish it off. Worked pretty good! The Pledge works awesome for keeping your sled nice and shiny as well!

Great tip safety director! Thanks!

BTW - I went from being not a sled head to having 3 this year, and learning a ton already on maintenance and repair of that old 88. Good learning tool, and great advice I have gotten from many here in the forum. thanks! Bring on the snow already smile

I think I'll give pledge ot fox x a shot. I can spend the $80 on something else.

Thanks,

Skidoo modular helmets are great as well but they are not cheap. I rode a sled for one winter with the heated shield it worked great but I always had a problem with pulling the plug out. Once I got the skidoo helmet I would never go back to a heated visor.

heated face sheilds are the way to go. I thought the cord would be annoying at first but u hardly know its there. Worth every penny, i would never go back to a none heated one.

There is a product I use on visors and glasses called Cat [PoorWordUsage] from Campmor. Good stuff.

Are you using a double sided snowmobile visor and breath shield? For three years I would ride with my motorcycle shield (one layer) just cracked a bit but I used to imagine if I went over 80mph, cant imagine ever doing that...., it would close and the glass would fog up. Now I finally ordered the double layer shield for my motorcycle helmet. Also got the breath guard. Not only do I feel like a fighter pilot, I also never worry about fog or shield falling down while joy riding.

I wear a open face with a deflector and a balavaca(sp) and never worry about getting cold. the feild of vision is better with the open face helmets so thats why I wear one of those and they feel lighter on my gord too..

Another vote here for the modular helmet. Its sort of a cross between regular full face and open face/goggle set up. They arent cheap but after having one theres nothing else I will wear now. no Fog issues just like the goggle set up but still have a shield to keep cold air out and the baseball cap type visor

is really nice when the suns low which is quite a bit this time of year. If you can afford one you wont regret getting it.

I found one on the shelf at a dealer that was left over from the year before for half price at $250. worth every penny.

you may have a shield problem. if any air gets inbetween the double shield, they fog up bad. I had that problem, then went for the heated shield, I pluging the heated shield in a couple times last year, as the new shield worked fine without the heat on. I love the heated shield though, and will stay with that. I have had no problems with the cord as of yet, but it will get the test this year again.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
