Need to figure something out because my sight is getting bad enough to where I can't see very good without my glasses-and of course the glasses fog up immediately. What are other people doing in this situation??
Check out No Fog face mask. Used it on very cold sunny days for sun glasses. Works extremely well. If you want to spend some money try CKX Tranz 1.5 AMS helmet. Rubber breath guard along with the air management system carry all your breath out the back of the helmet. Had mine out on a couple of -30c days. No fogging whatsoever. Keep in mind this is a cold weather helmet. Breath guard does not seem removable. $400.00 Canadian.Need to figure something out because my sight is getting bad enough to where I can't see very good without my glasses-and of course the glasses fog up immediately.

You can do two things that are guaranteed to work. First one is to get a BV2S helmet and adjust it properly...you will never have fog on the inner visor or your glasses.Need to figure something out because my sight is getting bad enough to where I can't see very good without my glasses-and of course the glasses fog up immediately.

Nothing works... dish soap—no... sprays to treat lenses—no... home remedies that grandma swore by—nope... open face helmet with goggles and a decent (real) balaclava— no (funny how on those really cold minus 30 nights and even colder wind chill temps, your face starts to sting from the cold somehow finding it’s way in. That’s okay...kids that do that are tough...and the impending frostbite �� is something they ignore in front of their sledding buddies. lol �� I’ve seen it!).I have tried everything short of a BVS2 helmet. I have worn glasses forever. I can't wear contacts. No Fog mask is the ticket along with a heated shield. You have to get your breath out from the helmet. I keep my helmet shield cracked open. I use a modular, and at every stop I open the whole face. If I have time, I put my glasses inside my jacket pocket. Also keep the helmet vents open. All humidity must be out of the helmet.
Yes, the fancy pants BRP helmet would be better, and it is better. No need to crack the visor. Quieter more comfortable experience.I've worn glasses about as long as I've been snowmobiling. In the old days, never had a problem with fogging, because we all wore open-face helmets (if any helmet at all). Have worn full-face helmets since 1990 and the first one was pretty bad - constant fogging unless I cracked open the shield and left it there.
A couple of years ago, I bought a Polaris modular helmet that has a very good breath shield. It has a heated shield, also. Normally don't have a problem with fogging noW
Weekend before last, out snowmobiling and was struggling with fogging. Turned out to be my breath deflector was not adjusted to my face. After tightening up the nose arch, fogging went away completely and has not returned.
Short story long, I've had issues with fogging in the past, but my latest modular helmet with a good breath deflector (adjusted properly) and heated shield does extremely well and I don't need anything else. I always leave the front vent open so that my breath exhausts out of the helmet and does't push back up through the breath deflector.
Maybe the fancy pants BRP helmet would be better, but the real trick was getting the breath deflector firmly pressed against my face.
After losing a new sled, not because I could not find it, I now wear contacts. If you think that you cannot tolerate contacts, it does take some time to get used to them. Had lasik done twice and still need glasses or contacts.
Well that’s one opinion, but I don’t believe it’s a shared one. There are lots and lots of the BRP 2’s out there...Kinda cool looking with the vent in front. Non the less, your suggestion would probably work to keep the stale air away. What do they go for $$$...Those BV2S helmets are kinda goofy looking, what about the ski-doo modular 3 helmet? It it has a rubber mask that vents to the outside also...
