Oakley Visor spray?

Hello,

I recently purchased an Oakley Visor and it states in the manual you should only use Oakley branded sprays on it as other sprays will damage it. Is this actually true or just Oakley trying to make you use their products.

Any info appreciated.

Thanks.

because of its proprietary anti-fog and scratch resistant coatings you should only use the oakley formulated cleaners.

Yes, you must. I had a 1 Xcel visor, before Oakley took over, and I brushed off the whole AFR spray thing and it crystalized.

I sprayed 1 with Windex 1 day and learned my lesson the hard way.

I had an Oakley visor, sprayed it with the cleaner they sold at the local sports store and never had any problems what so ever.

Think it's called AFR cleaner. This is a reason why I like my Itech...
