We had actual snow here in the Atlanta area over the weekend; as you can imagine, it pretty much shut the city down. Weather guys are exhausted from rolling up their sleeves and pointing at amoebic onscreen graphics showing impending snowy doom. So, not too many bikes on the road today. I’m housebound myself, working on computer projects.
But I believe I’ve found the answer to fogging faceshields: FogTech. The little packets are pricey (just under a buck apiece at most retail outlets, although a bit of Web searching can beat that), so I’ve invested in the more economical bottle for at-home application.
The beauty of the wipe-on packet is that it’s painless: open the packet, wipe the moist towelette across the inside of the visor, and you’re ready to go. No polishing a smeared waxy coating until it’s achieved a tolerable degree of bleariness. This is completely clear as it goes on, with no distortion of your view. It’s supposed to last for several cold days before you need to reapply.
When you first apply it, you may think, “This is too easy; it can’t be effective.” But it really does the trick: absolutely clear, no fogging, no streaking. It’s my new favorite thing.
