If you’re like me, the bane of your existence is fogged glasses while getting out and about with your mask on. It’s certainly not an ideal situation either having to decide what the best solution is. Either taking your glasses off and not being able to see anything, or maybe just giving up breathing entirely. Other suggestions online recommend getting laser eye surgery or wearing contacts. There are also arcane knots you can do in your mask straps that magically don’t do anything to negate the fog. More reliable solutions include soap on the lenses if you want to risk scratching your glasses up or even (surprise surprise) anti-fog spray.
Mostly you just don’t want air escaping up the bridge of your nose into the backs of your glasses. A pinch installed in your mask is the perfect way to fix this issue. With that in mind, here’s our favourite fits that look good and feel good to boot.
Herschel Classic Fitted Face Mask
Made with three breathable layers, the mask features a soft liner and a centre sleeve that fits a standard air filter. The mask is designed to fit close to your face with an adjustable lightweight nose bridge and side adjustment tabs. For all day comfort, use the connection lock to lift the ear loops and ease pressure on your ears.
Also comes in a range of different colours and patterns to match with your suit if black isn’t your thing. Personally, I come from the Ford school of thought regarding colour choices.
Bilio – Koala Onyx
This one has a bit more of a bulkier design, so if you were hoping for something a bit more slimline then I’d stick with the Hershel. It uses a recycled polyester yarn blend which makes it washable and reusable. It has integrated elastic ear loops and uses Antimicrobial SilverKiss technology powered by X-STATIC, whatever that is! Best of all though it has an Encapsulated copper wire nose crimp to stop your glasses fogging. Copper wire isn’t the sturdiest though, and will snap eventually if you aren’t careful with how you bend it. We would recommend picking up some more bows with your order while you’re at it.
Our final pick is the UA Sportsmask perfect for the more active members of the audience. It’s made with high-performance UA materials, designed to be worn all day & when playing sports. It’s water-resistant outer shell features smooth, breathable spacer fabric and a polyurethane open-cell foam lets air through but makes it hard for moisture and sweat to pass. It also has UA Iso-Chill fabric on the interior lining & ear loops which makes it feel cool to the touch for as long as you wear it. Really this is built for ultimate comfort for someone intending on doing a ton of sweating. It’s also fitted perfect to keep the air off your face. Perfect!
