    I can tell you rarely see temps like 14*F.

    Yeah, after I wrote that double-pane post, the guilt of being ignorant forced me to Google for them. I saw the Arai pop up, but I already knew about the HJC one-- the latter always struck me as a snowmobiling option first and foremost. Yeah, it'd work on a bike just fine, but again, if the fix is as simple as two panes to a visor, I dunno why I need to worry about a powered heated option for plain ol' regular street riding in cooler but not necessarily frozen weather.

    Thanks all for the learnin', though! :1drink

    Things that just plain work. PinLock shields and Fog City inserts. Everything else just wastes time and money. Those have been the only NO FOG things that have lived up to their claims.

    Anyone tried to add Pinlock to a visor that wasn't made for it? Not available for my Scorpion EXO900 as far as I know.

    TIA,
    Dave

    I have that one too, but the non-electric version. I find it is too drafty, leaks air in at the top. It does stay clear though in very cold weather. I like my pinlock better,

    So on the advice of some of you here..........I bought the Fog City insert.

    The frickin thing is just amazing. The temp was 28 here this morning, 10 seconds after closing the visor the shield around the insert was completely fogged over. NOT the insert........clear as a bell.

    To date, some of the best money I have spent on gear. If this thing lasts, for 20+ some bucks it's worth every penny.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    Tried Dawn on my eyeglass lenses today for an hour+ ride in 30 degrees ambient. Worked a treat.

    1. Remove visor & get cheap/used double lens ski goggles.

    2. Get a used snowmobile helmet.

    These seem like the cheapest way to get to double lenses, which is what you really want.

    IMO Scorpion makes the best fog free visors on the market. They're made in Canada by the same company that makes fog free hockey visors.

    I've done both the Pinlock and Fog City inserts and while they do work well they increase glare at night.

    I like the Foggy Respro Mask best of all. It has worked great for me at really cold temps here in Alaska.

    Good luck and have fun, Mark H.
