Full face fog

How do you guys prevent fog from building inside of your lids when riding on a steamy day/night?
I've tried to adjust all vents etc... and nothing seems to work for me other than cracking a little bit open? :eh:

Rain X, or Scotts anti fog wipes.
FWIW, Suomy shields come with an anti-fog coating.

If you want to be simple wash the shield with soap and water and dry.

I've installed the Fog Breath Guard in my Shoei RF-1000 helmet and I've also used the Rain-X Anti Fog after washing with soap and water. The faceshield still fogs up if I don't open a portion. :/

edit: Check it out, here's some reviews, http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcyc...ty-progrip.htm

I had the fog city Hyperoptics on my helmet for a long time. I used it summer, fall, and winter. You couldn't make it fog up. Just be sure to follow the instructions and put it in carefully so that it doesn't scrape the rubber when you close your helmet.

The little line of adhesive tape that held it on bothered me so I put it up high, but since it's fallen off in the summer I have a small leak int he top of my helmet. It supposedly has a warranty for the life of your shield, but mine fell off after 3 seasons.

It was worth it though, especially since I didn't have to wear sunglasses (except when summer came cause it was so bright; plus I like to ride with my shield open in the summer).

*takes a breath*

So if no fog, light-reactive, slightly annoying black tape-line helmet insert is your thing, look into the Fog City Hyperoptics insert. Not for curved shields or supposedly night-time use. I didn't have any issues.

The Pinlock thing looks better.
