Sheild Fogging

What is everyone using to help keep there sheilds from fogging. When on the bench it fogs pretty good. Once on the ice it take little bit to clear up. Anything that can be put on it.

Try a different helmet with better ventilation. After I got a new helmet, my shield barely fogs up anymore.

What kind of shield are you having trouble with? In my somewhat limited experience, I think Itech fogs up alot more than Oakley.

I don't know from first hand experience, but I've heard all the anti-fog sprays are a waste of time.

I agree with the above poster, ventilation is the absolute key.

I will take my whole helmet off on the bench if it is one of those days were it seems to be fogging up more than usual.

Good Luck!

I went from an older model CCM 852 to a 1052. I didn't do it because of the fogging, I needed a clean helmet for reffing. The difference really surprised me.

I have two of these fog free shields and they are excellent. No fogging at all.

+3 for shampoo.

Put a thin layer on it and rub until you can see through it again.

I don't use a visor. But I had used the iTech stuff back in the day. I 6th the Shampoo suggestion.

Other than that, without using shampoo, my teammates have adjusted the visor so that there is more room between the helmet and the visor. It might just be a problem of having too much heat trying to escape from too little of an area. Adjusting the visor so that it sticks out a little more might alleviate the problem.

this is going to sound really strange but i swear it works. Put a paper towel in your helmet before the game. Just lay it in flat and slap it on.

***, i just bought my Itech HS22...and during a pickup game it scratched somehow!? As if someone took a razorblade to it on the side and put like 7-8 diagonal scratch marks. Honestly, I used it for one hour max and it has a scratch, is there some sort of warranty against that?

Highly doubt that came from playing unless you threw your visor on the ice. sounds like it got scraped up with something in your bag.

I have an HS22 pro wave and never fog unless I tilt my helmet back. But in any case I usually wipe down my visor with windex to get it clean. not sure if that helps with reducing fog...

Find a nice cloth. Maybe even the nifty microfiber kind if you're serious; and slowly try to buff out the scratches using toothpaste. If you've got gouges that are reminiscent of a bear attack, move up to something like Novus Plastic Polish. As always, start gently and start with the low end solution before moving up.

Your results may vary, so you might want to try all this on a scratch that's to the side before treating any scratches right in your field of vision.

That is what i thought, but I never even put it in my bag because i didn't have a bag specifically for the helmet. It was on my kitchen counter, then the front seat of my car, never was it in a bag at all. I'm so upset right now.
