Test is closed with 25 signed up! (Unless you have a really good story.)

I know this is the wrong time of the year here in the northern hemisphere, but I would like to ask snowmobilers help me test a new antifog called FogTech. It has already been tested in Motorcycle and Paintball and rated very highly. See http://www.motosolutions.com/reviews.html

But I think Snowmobiling would be the most difficult challenge for my product. Freezing conditions, enclosed helmets and hard physical work add up to the the ideal conditions for fogging. I know you have double shields, electric shields, etc. but some of those are inconvenient, expensive and can affect vision. I have tested FogTech by freezing faceshields with the product on them and judging the clarity. But that is no comparison for your actual experiences.

I will send up to 20 snowmobilers anywhere in the world a free sample of FogTech if you will report the results back to me. Send your name, complete mailing address, your helmet and visor (or goggles) type and phone number to [email protected] About two weeks after I send the sample, I will send an email asking about your results. I will only call you if I need a more detailed explanation of your results.

yeah, it does sound interesting. I wear a full face helmet (see my avatar) and on real cold days it will get frost on the inside. It also will fog like mad if i'm not moving. When i'm moving though, it stays pretty clear.

Here are a few responses-

luvsnowcold>>I believe it will work very well on the modular helmet. FogTech is designed to work on plastic (coated or uncoated) and glass. That modular helmet has a mask to vent your breath which is a significant source of fogging. However many people get fogging in goggles, right? Hopefully they aren't breathing thru their eyes. That fog causing moisture comes from their skin perspiring and from their eyes. FogTech eats that up. Apply to both sides of your glasses and the inside of your goggles or shield.

ripper--I have tested FogTech by freezing face masks to subzero temps and exposing them to room air. It appears to work very well in preventing frost and fog. The mask usually stays crystal clear on the FogTech side. But I need real world experience. I can't duplicate your rides in my fridge. (Hmmm...I am rethinking that. I could find a freezer at a frozen products company and test my various helmets and goggles in there.)

I have room left for 15 testers now.

How cold can it get in Walnut Creek? Nowhere near -40. Lawdy, lawdy, hab mercy!!

But we can still fog a shield. The start of the FogTech journey was after a party in Sausalito about 2 years ago. They wanted to see my new bike, BMW R1150R. I left the party near midnight and walked into heavy rain. Sausalito is built on a steep hill, streets are all curvy with no street lights. And it is right on San Francisco Bay so fog is always a possibility.

I put my Arai full face on and tried to ride out. Immediately fogged up. Cracked the shield and rain started flying in but fog started to go away. Closed the shield, now the fog got worse. So my choice was blind from the fog or blind from the rain.

About 6 months later, I got laid off from my software sales job and decided, I had enough of the corporate world. So here I am 18 months later with some serious $$$ investment and a heckuva good product IMHO.

But as you pointed out Xc, I lack snow and freezing temps to test FogTech in the environment you guys play in. Works very well for the motorcyclists that are using it. And paintball players are starting to order. Need skiers and snowboarders too. And want to test it on Ice Hockey players.

BTW, the coldest I have been was -15 F at about 11,000 feet on top of Mammoth with a blizzard blowing. Don't know what the windchill was. But I was having fun skiing. I cannot imagine -40.

Thanks for all the volunteers. I still have 8 more slots.

Claude>>it does work on bathroom mirrors.

Amaze your friends!! Impress your spouse!

Soak a Q-tip in FogTech, shake off the excess. Then write something on the mirror. The writing will be transparent. When they take a shower and the mirror fogs, the writing will magically appear.

(One of these days, I will get a life.)

Oh man that is great. I gotta see what other household stuff might do that, just for a prank!
