    Are there any products that keep your scope clear in high humidity conditions?

    When I hunt in rain or sleet conditions and have the scope open for more than a minute it gets to be so bad that I can't see clear enough to take a shot.

    I have tried a few things, but nothing seems to work all that well.

    thanks,

    edge.

    1. Rain-X makes an anti-fog for inside of winshields never tried it on a scope though. A glasses cleaner called Purple Stuff is a very good anti fog, never tried that on a scope either.

    2. Keep your covers on untill you have a shot.

    3. Toilet paper, a staple when out in the woods. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    (also saves you from cutting up your t-shirt) /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    4. If all else fails your shirt sleeve.

    I use the Parker's when its so cold out you can't get your optics up to your eyes before they fog up.

    It's not as clear as they make it out to be. You'll notice it while looking through binos and scopes but it is better than looking through fog.

    I haven't tried the spit technique but I've heard that works well.

    I used some stuff called "Scope Dope" in a little orange 'Carmex' jar. It worked pretty well, but I have not used it out in the cold. It would keep glasses/scopes from fogging up when you breathe on them in the house though. Gander Mountain used to carry this product.

    Here's the link to Scope Dope $4.99 Scope Dope

    They used to sell a product to do the same thing called "Cat Crap." With a name like that it had to be good. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Just don't lick your fingers. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
