Oakley shield and visor guard
 
I bought an oakley aviator today to replace my old straight cut Itech and it is quite a difference. I bought the aviator because I thought it provided a little more coverage over the straight cut but I may be wrong. My question on the visor is that I always use an anti fog called Visor Guard, I am sure many use it but does anyone here use it on the oakley or is it a bad idea?

Bad idea. ONLY USE OAKLEY SPRAY ON OAKLEY VISORS. I learned the hard way by spraying windex on my my visor years ago. I have an Itech visor and an Oakley visor and use each companys spray cleaners on them.

rub dishwasher soap or shampoo into the visor then wipe off ( not wash off ) with a rag.

Pledge furniture wax works great as well. Probably a lot cheaper and you can polish your coffee table with it too.

I don't believe that using Oakley spray on an Itech (now Bauer) or vice versa would be a big deal. The companies obviously want you to buy their product so they will tell you this but I say go for it.

I agree with the shampoo trick. Coat the visor with it and just rub it off with a paper towel or dry clean cloth (do not use water). Works awesome for antifog, I used to always carry a small hotel sized bottle of shampoo in my bag for this purpose.

Don't use sprays on an oakley that aren't the ACR spray. Cleaning it is one thing.

Don't use paper towels or anything like that. Oakley visors don't handle chemicals well at all. It'll look like you tie-died the thing.

I ruined one oakley visor by not using the approved stuff. the inside looks like a spiderweb. spend the 5 bucks on the oakley spary. I skate3-5 times a week and 1 bottle lasts about 7-8 months.

I use shampoo, works like a charm.

I wear the aviator. A little more coverage and Oakley claims it is less likely to fog up than a straight cut.

I got what was available at the local hockey shop .... they didn't have an Aviator. I probably would have gotten one if they had.

Anyone know what kind of an Oakley visor is Satan wearing? Im asking because ive got the same helmet and i havent bought a visor for it yet. It seems like the visor ive been thinking about.

Is it more coverage or less coverage?
