used it twice and both times it fogged up after the first 15 minutes. don't think my face is that
warm. i really like these but the fogging up is too disruptive. am i going to buy the anti fog spray
thingie or just toss the new goggles? any other ideas? thanks.

When you rinse them out does it keep coming back? I think they normally are a bit more foggy than
other goggles because there is no insulating seal to stop the heat conduction from your face to
the plastic.

yes, it keeps coming back, almost immediately after each rinsing. i have to keep rinsing and
spitting/licking but to no avail. my marlin [Speedo] which looks strikingly similar to these
original swedish doesn't fog

Last time I used goggles like these I had to keep a little water in the eyepieces to swish around
now and then (which happened on every turn automatically.) I hadn't really gone to any trouble to
investigate any de-fogging methods beyond saliva, though.

This topic came up here recently. I had used a commercial solution until I read someone's suggestion
to rub a drop of liquid soap into each lens (the sort of soap that's in most locker rooms). This
works great for me.

i actually did the same but the fog was relentless. the thing is i can't even swim further than 25m
not seeing a thing. will try the liquid soap next. thanks, A1.

I have read that Johnson and Johnson Baby Shampoo (the original type and brand) is good for
preventing fog in goggles.
