    Titmus (brand) "Fog Eliminator Cloths"

    A mate just put me onto these yesterday when on a hunt.

    they're amazing!!

    I wear glasses - my glasses will fog whenever I pause, and until yesterday, I have not found one product that kept my lenses so clear.

    This product is brilliant - so I rang our local safety supplier - and you guessed it, they're 'only' $199 per 100.

    do any of you know a supplier who'll sell per 10 or so?

    For any hunters who wear glasses - I stress - this product is the best I've ever found - and I've tried a few.

    Sounds like your onto something SiB. I wear contacts when hunting nowadays due to me getting sick of fogging up glasses, but for things like shades and binoculars this may be bloody handy. Wonder if it would damage/remove the lense coatings on optics??

    It looks like its clasified as a safety equipment accessory so you could try another safety equipment supplier??

    I wonder if the product you can get for the inside of race car windscreen is the same? Cheaper?

    I have tried other local suppliers and NZ Safety only ones i found - and $199 per 100 belond my budget. This product is issued to workers @ the smelter - definitely a commercial "safety" product. (they're little cloths impregnated with some kind of special fluid, they come in a little foil sachet - you can re-seal and reuse for a while too. you can smell solvent of some sort, but are 'alcohol free' according to packaging)

    Apparently there's a 3M product - waay cheaper - but I've tried most - and not one has impressed me. This one trully is amazing. Optician-supplied 'cleaning fluid' might clean lenses - but it does not have any of the anti-fog qualities this product does.

    Yes it's totally comptible with all lenses and coatings - my mate's been using for a while on his Leupold scope, and I did same on my Luger scope. My own prescription glasses are multi-coated, and no harm noted).

    I've already sent a message to our local H&F retailer suggesting they buy bulk and retail per 5 or 10 pack. Put some pressure on your local retailer?

    Fogged up glasses is the biggest pain ever... Walk up a hill warm up a bit, get to the top deer standing away a bit start stalking glasses fog up..

    Its a real pain early frosty mornings especially ...

    How long did you stay unfogged for ?? Id be keen to try some if cheap enough ...

    sorry I didn't reply sooner - the walk was a couple of hours, and I didn't need to touch them at all.

    they were fine the following day until I gave them a really good clean for a meeting.

    it does say on the packaging they 're good until they get wet ie appears they're fog resist, but don't repel rain
