I was at the IMS in Cleveland a few weeks ago and I did see them doing a demo, but after looking at it a bit closer (esp. the price), I decided not to get it.

The stuff I use on my visor is the same anti-fog solution I use on my dive mask. The tinny bottle cost maybe $8-$10 (any scuba diving shop will have this), but you only need a small amount such as a size of a eraser on a No2 pencil (it's gel-like so it spreads out easily). You let it sit for some 30 seconds and just rinse it with water. Works great and that small bottle will last you at least a year or two (probably longer depending on your riding conditions).

There are different sizes, but the one I use is similar to the size of a white-out bottle.

The only one that I have actually found to work is Clarity Defog It.

Not cheap, and need to reapply daily (at least). But it does help a lot.

You know you can use spit, right? It's free and works just as well.

I got suckered (usually I leave my wallet at home as I know that I am an e-z mark) at the Chicago IMS. BUT. I had 'em demo it on my salt encrusted helmet visor on saturday last. Haven't touched the visor since and it hasn't fogged up on my daily commute nor the 45 mile trip to my MC meeting last night. SO. It's werkin for me so far.

I got sucked into the metal polsh 10 yrs ago. Polishes nice soft pop cans real good. Bike hard cases... hardly any shine. Mother's is way better. Nice to know that the IMS show really gives a shit about what is shilled to bikers. Makes every product/service vendor at the show suspect.

edit: as noted, product seems to work on the visor. Does not work well on lenses close to my face, glasses & clip-on sunglasses. grrrrrr

my glasses fog up like a mofo. I have not figured out any fix for that yet.
Limit the moisture that gets to them with a breath deflector. Increase ventilation through the face area.

I've tried many anti-fog potions. The best seem to work about half as good as I'd like. Just rubbing on some soap and wiping dry is as good as anything.

ive had no problems using the blaze product, The sales guy said to me a lot of people make the mistake of not applying it right. Did you spray some on and rub it around with your finger, let it dry a little bit and then buff off?

"Rain X" is not suitable for use on most all face shields, according to its manufacturer.

Well I bought/suckered some last weekend. Not sure which, we'll see. It wasn't the spray that caught my attention, it was the wax. Been a big fan of classic old Pledge for years. It fills the tiny scratches well and cleans the gunk off well. I try other things, but keep coming back to Pledge. They made the same claim, but with fog-repellance as well. Hopefully, it will actually work. If not, Pledge. And spit for anti-fog.

I found the Foggy mask from the UK company Respro works the best for eyeglass wearers... don't even bother installing my Pinlock anymore.

FogTech fluid works too, but application is a pain.

I'll have to give it another shot, but they don't seem to do a good job with showing you how to use the stuff.
