    Is there anything that works to keep scopes and binoculars from foging up when you breath on them. I have a big white beard and I wear a mast to cover it up and when I look through my binoculars I try to hold my breath but if I slip up, my breath comes up from the mask and they get fogged up. Dishwashing soap works a little but not good enough. Anyone use anything that is anti fog?

    This is an honest answer, no jerking around.
    In the ski shops or sporting good stores look for a product called Cat Crap
    Cat crap is a wonderful anti-fog product.

    I'll second Cat Crap. I vet raced and did the tele circuit when I was younger, took 2nd at state on Big mtn. Antifog in small dish like carmex size. Use it all the time, just coated all my stuff, taken next week to hunt you have to reapply if wet or once or so a day,just breath on and if fog reapply only takes seconds

    I've used Cat Crap and a similar looking product called Scope Dope. I like the scope dope better.

    Shaving cream, try it by wiping some on your bathroom mirror when you shower. Works great on my optics .

    Great info thanks guys. Do you notice any difference in the clarity of the scope/binoculars?

    I have seen no difference when using the anti-fog. I do not have high end glass on anything I use. I do a glass cleaning everytime I clean my firearms though.
