    Ok, while wearing a camo mask, my glasses continually fog. Tried different masks, anti-fog stuff etc.. Any suggestions?

    I had to cut a nose & mouth hole in mine so I could blow breath out & away instead of inside the mask.

    I have the same problem with winter face masks and such.
    Same cure for them.

    Just have to find a way to get your warm breath to go somewhere else besides up on your cold glasses.

    From hunting in muzzle loader season in Jan in Northern Pennsylvania, I can't add anything to that except breathing through a snorkel while trying to aim your rifle.

    Poke holes in the sides to slide the temples and wear the glasses over the eye cut out.

    Assuming that your mask is cut out for your eyes, nose and mouth the best solution to handle hot breath in cold weather is to breath out by puckering your mouth like blowing through a straw. This gets your hot breath away from your face and away from eye glasses. If you look through your binoculars or rifle scope hold your breath, and when you are finished looking or shooting turn your face to the side to breath out.

    Get contacts or consider Lasik surgery. Anything else is really just a temproary fix.

    I got contacts. I can see and shoot better with them in all conditions, except maybe heavy wind with a lot of dust.

    They're not an option for everyone, though.

    I use the net based masks. Then you breath will flow better.

    I have the others. It seems that if it's cold, I soon get a nasty wet mask in my face.

    Google Fog Tech. I can assure you your fogging problems will be gone.

    Also google Cat Crap! I'm not sure if it is the brand name or just what they call it because of the smell? Really I'm not kidding.

    I used it while caving and above ground very cold weather activities. My container was given to me and the writing was rubbed off the container.

    35 years ago when I rode a motorcycle everyday to work, I wore a full faced Bell helmet with a throat coat to stop the wind from coming up into the helmet during the winter months. Needless to say, it would fog up in a heartbeat. My solution....wipe the visor with very soapy water and let it air dry. Worked well back then. Hopefully they haven't done something to the soap since then. :D
