    I've seen products that are advertised as being used to keep glasses from fogging, never tried it though. I've found that I have a pair or two that DO fog, and the rest of the don't. I just don't wear the fogging ones (Wiley X of some model). The ones that fog are the ones that fit too close to my forehead-no venting for the heat.

    As Sheepdog said, the key is in the fit more than anything. Glasses that fit too tightly will fog.

    Having said that, pick up some anti fog solution that swimmers use for their goggles. That will help dramatically too.

    Ventilation without compromising a good fit is it.

    Also any dive shop will have some good 'anti-fog' stuff that'd certinly help.

    Whatever you do wear them I had 12 shards of brass pulled out of my eye and the safety glasses i had sitting on top of my head would of saved a lot of trouble expense and possibly my eye which recovered

    Try Oakley M frames they are very nice and very impact resistant. If you still need extra ventilation try the golf specific ones they have little ventilation holes at the top of the lenses.

    Take a bar of clear glycerin soap and rub a little on your lenses then polish them with a soft cloth. Helps keep the fog down..

    +1 to this. I now have 8 different lenses and two sets of frames so I wear them shooting in any possible light condition. VERY good stuff!

    get good glasses that fit right and arnt too tight, then go to a dive shop. They all sell great stuff to keep divers masks from fogging up
