    Frustrated and need instructions, advice, insight

    I am using Adidas Gazelle glasses with an RX insert.

    I have tried the Clarity Fog Eliminator Dry Reuseable Anti-Fog cloths and Sea Gold Anti-Fog Gel (for diving masks) and have not found either to work. I have also tried liquid soap.

    The Clarity product reduced fogging slightly but the lenses still fogged far more than I would like. I rubbed the lenses with the cloth for a long time. For those who have had great success, what could I be doing wrong?

    I tested the Clarity product on the road but have only went out on the back porch after applying the Sea Gold. One breath on my lenses and they were completely fogged over. No change that I could see. What could I be doing wrong with this product? Do I need to test it on the road with better airflow before passing judgment. It said to rinse twice immediately after applying. So I rinsed twice, wiping the lenses dry both times. The first rinse still left a lot of gel on the lenses but the second rinse seemed to clear them completely of gel.

    What is better than getting your heart rate up and saddle time?

    Can anybody give me some help here?

    Are the lenses on the Gazelles double layered? I've found that dual layer lenses work best in the cold.

    Do you mean that Adidas makes double and single layered lenses or just double layered in general?

    I don't know about the layering. They seem thick but I have never actually compared them to anything but my Bolle's that are really old. The Adidas lenses are much thicker than the Bolle's.

    You would be able to tell if it had two layers. The Rudy Project goggles that I mentioned above have two lenses that are separated by a piece of foam. It works by using the air in between as a buffer for the inside and outside lenses, thus helping to prevent fogging. Most (if not all) nicer snow goggles come with a dual layer lens.

    I leave my visor open a crack on my helemts. A bit of air flow is all that is needed to control most fogging.
