FOG CITY FOG SHIELD
submitted by Wendy Henry (Lucijo)
I love simple solutions to big problems.
And when you can't see through the face shield of your full face helmet
because of fogging, that's a big problem. On a suggestion from a British
rider who encounters some of the dreariest, wettest, and cold weather on
her daily commute to work, I tried the FOG CITY FOG SHIELD. Described as

face shield. Cleans up easily with a cloth and household window cleaner.

crystal clear, and I haven't noticed any problems with glare at night.
Simple solution. And it's inexpensive as well!
