  • Snow blindness

    For those bright sunny days on the trail, what's your favorite snow goggle or sunglasses? What do you do to help the lens from fogging up or icing up?

    I made Inuit style goggles because I always wanted to. They are warm on my face,don't fog up, and work perfect.

        I wear glasses so I have some glacier glasses frames with my prescription lenses. They are polarized and have UV protection built in. As for keeping them fog free, there's a product called "Cat Crap" that I discovered years ago. It was created to keep ski goggles free of fog so I picked some up to try out. I've been using it ever since.

        That's all for now. Take care and until next time...be well.

        PS - Mewolf - Do you have plans for your snow goggles or did you make your own? It looks like an interesting project.

            Depending on the brightness, I've had good luck with ESS wrap-around sunglasses with the mirrored gray lenses, or Martin (less expensive) or Varney (more costly) mirrored glacier glasses, or Oakley ski goggles with the densest dark lens. I second the recommendation about Cat Crap for the fogging. I've also found that when the conditions are blowy and snowy, the goggles work better than the glasses.

                Are those polarized?

                  Not anymore. I'm at the age where lots of things don't work like they used to.

                    A thick enough block of wood and a band saw would take much of the work out of the project; I started with a curved piece of red cedar and my spoon carving knife.
