    Are there shooting glasses that don't fog?

    At the range, I used to take the eye protection off to wipe the fog clear with my shirt. I just found out that this is frowned upon. So now I have to make multiple trips to the entry room to wipe them down. This is extremely annoying.

    Are there some that don't fog?

    There actually are some cuties in there now and then. Unfortunately, they're usually with their boyfriends who are teaching them to shoot.

    Try pulling them off your face a little bit so you can get some more airflow behind them.

    Some eye wear designs are better than others.
    Indoor ranges are ventilated in such a way that outside air changes must be made to clear smoke, fumes and some lead.This means that the temperature in the range may be close to the due point of the outside air. On very humid days the air in the range may be close to the saturation point called due. This will cause condensation and fogging on glass or plastic lenses. Designs that are vented above the bridge of the nose will fog less. Some products designed to keep the inside of your car windshield from fogging may also help slightly if you clean you shooting glasses with it first.

    Here is an example of vented eye protection. About $10-12.00.

    I would use an anti-fog wipe or solution. I have the wipes, but don't remember what they are....used them before I went out on convoys..

    I just buy regular safety glasses from Amazon. I think the last bunch I bought were Dewalt clear and tinted. They fit great and I think they where about $4 dollars for two pair.

    At that price, I can afford to lose them.

    Although it doesn't always solve the problem completely, I find that this product does help considerably.

    If you don't mind wearing tactical goggles at the range, you can get quiet fan assisted ones that will eliminate the problem,

    You can try the anti-fog spray that paintball players use on their goggles.

    I have used Cat Crap with better success than other anti-foggers, which I have used. Haven't tried everything but of what I have tried this seems to work best, for me.

    I bought a pair of Remingtons today. The guy that sold them to me said that they "won't fog." I was skeptical, but I got them. Well...they fogged just like the ones in the bin at the range. They were super nice, but they stil fogged.

    But that's okay. I picked up some Rain-X anti-fogging formula and will try that. But what's NOT okay is that they were tinted and the range is slightly dark. So I took them back and exchanged them for some clear ones, so we'll see how that works out.

    Shaving cream. Put a dab on your finger tip. (the white stuff, not shaving gel) and rub it around on the lense. Let "dry" for a minute or so, and buff with an old t shirt. Sounds stupid, but it works. Also works for the bathroom mirror, no joke.

    When I was SCUBA diving in the 70s we spit on the inside of our face masks, rubed it around and rinsed, worked pretty good.

    Now you could get some of the anti fog product from a dive shop, I pull my glasses slightly away from my face and let the ear muffs hold them on place to allow air circulation.

    No shooting glasses come anti-fog that I know of to this day. You'll need to give yours a treatment with anti-fog wipes or similar. Just like the windshield on your vehicle. IMO, the silicone treatment is good. Don't worry about those girls out with their boyfriend learning to shoot. Most of the boyfriends are still learning themselves, and the girls wish they had more of a man after the range session is over. Cut in on the dance whenever you feel it necessary.
