Cold Weather Mask

A While back, I bought a gadget that has a little copper mesh over type mouth so that when you exhale the air warms up.  The next inhale gives you warm air.  This is required for me because of cold air induced asmath.  It works, but it puts moist air on my glasses so I cannot see, especially at twilight.  Obviously hunters do not wear glasses so devices like this work great.  Is there a mask that covers JUST the mouth and noise without creating glass fog?  Not being able to walk with wife and dogs add the weather cold off is disheartening.

This one claims to keep moisture of the glasses.

"The soft and durable, medical-grade, microbe-resistant polyurethane in the chamber bonds with the humidity in the air, keeping moisture off the face and preventing fog on glasses and goggles."

Here's a link to a number of antifog products for glasses.

I haven't tried any myself, so I won't recommend any. There's another one called Rain-X Antifog, which is different from the Rain-X for windshields; I have used that and it's great! But again, I don't know about the antifog product, just that Rain-X works well on my windshield. Amazon's got lots of different antifog products.

Another idea that I've heard about but haven't tried, is foam-type shaving cream; a daub on each side of the lenses & then polishing it dry with a soft dry cloth or microfibre cloth.

Hope this helps!

There are anti fog sprays that can be applied to glasses. Skiers use them

I would check with REI in Anchorage or an Alaska store that sells snow machines and related gear. Also Alaska Mountaineering and hiking.

Yeah, a LOT of us do.
