Good Sunglasses that don't fog up

Anyone recommend any good sunglasses that don't fog up much in cold weather? or is that impossible to find?

have you tried anti fog on your sunglasses? that is what I use on my dive mask. Vented sunglasses are supposed to help. Oakley made some M frame lenses that were vented but I don't have any first hand knowledge.

I have a pair of prescription Oakley Radars that perform perfectly in basically every weather. I have had them for about a year and a half and have never had a problem with them. Of course, you'll need to be ready to pony up $500+ for a pair of Radars with Rx lenses, but they're worth it. If I had to buy new glasses again, I'd buy these all over.

My experience from hiking long ago- was that it is all in the fit. The coolest sunglasses that seal in your eyes the best, are prone to fog due to lack of air movement underneath (and your eyes are always moist and the sunglasses are cold in cold weather). Try some that are a little less wrap-around, less wind protection, and hopefully find a good compromise between good ventilation and eye protection.
