Thumbs down Blaze Anti Fog

Bought this stuff from a snake oil salesman at the NY Motorycle show after watching a demonstartion where he held glasses, goggles, and face shields over a steam kettle and nothing fogged up. So I fork over $27 for a two years supply, try it out and my face shield fogs up worse than it ever did. So I email the company, get NO response, then I google Blaze anti fog and find rip-off report after rip-off report all over the place.
Anti fog solution is not something you would normally check out before going to the bike show, and it was an impressive demonstration.
Needless to say, they are scam artists, their web site is down and if you see these bums anywhere at Americade, Laconia, wherever you might go, kick 'em in the ass for me.

Re: Blaze Anti Fog

Sounds like what you need is anti-anti-fog shield from Blaze. Fortunately, I'm an authorized dealer, if you send me $27 in cash, I'll ship you a jar of it.

Re: Blaze Anti Fog

Two things...

Do a search cause I think it's on here someplace. A legitimate site selling industrial grade anti fog stuff that seems to be pretty good. I've never used it, but others were very positive on it. I'll see if I can find it.

Here it is ; from the other site:

http://www.motosolutions.com/raincoat.html


Never buy anything like that without putting it on a credit card. You can get your money back if it is not legitimate. If they don't take credit cards an alert should go off.

Re: Blaze Anti Fog

Well, that's great. A friend and I split a batch of this stuff at the Cleveland IMS. The vendor cleaned my glasses (one side first), then did the same steam/vaporizer test you describe. It was impressive, and I have such a problem with my visor fogging up that I couldn't get the money out fast enough.

I haven't tried the stuff on my visor yet. Maybe others will be warned away from this stuff.

Re: Blaze Anti Fog

You might try this stuff. http://www.amazon.com/Ek-123625-Cat-.../dp/B002ZNA488.

Cat Crap. The stuff actually works.

I think I will try one of the pin visor thingeys though. Supposed to work great and easier to use to boot.

Re: Blaze Anti Fog

I tried the Rain-x and it worked for water, don't know about fog.

Amway had some stuff for glasses ( many years ago) and it worked great!!

Re: Blaze Anti Fog

A lot of what I do for fun seems to involve either helmets or face masks and I have found that for helmets up to about 22,000 feet when you quickly go from comfortable to below 0, a clean faceplate has less condensation than one that is dirty. On the high altitude jumps, keeping the face shield clean is significant. Not breathing on it and if possible fresh air blowing on it also help.

Diving underwater, what I had for breakfast seems to work most of the time too! (spit rinsed off right before going underwater.

A lot of the divers also use either my spit, their own (Ha) or diluted Johnson's Baby shampoo.

Motorcycle helmet face shield - I keep it clean. I had the double plate on my Schuberth, but didn't like the line around my eyes, so I removed it with no noticeable change.

Re: Blaze Anti Fog

I tried cat crap on my visor a couple years ago. Didn't do what I was expecting, in fact I couldn't see through the visor with that stuff on it.

My damn cat looked at me funny, too.

Re: Blaze Anti Fog

Paul, Thanks for posting the link to the review. I guess I forgot to pull the trigger on the link!

Pete, It would probably make it easy to get a table at the local diner though!

Does anyone out there use the pin lock face shield system? I am specifically wondering if the internal shield causes any problems with polarized sunglasses.

Re: Blaze Anti Fog

Green Palmolive dish soap - a 20+ life time buy for $3.00. Not as good as Cat Crap but it doesn't melt in the summer when you leave it in your tank bag. Works about 3-4 hours then re-apply.

To the OP: Couldn't have put it better myself. I did try, though. lol Below is what I posted on a few other forums that I regularly participate in, after I went to the D.C. cycle show. (Spotted your post in a google search.)

>>So I saw this vendor booth at the Progressive motorcycle show for Blaze Anti-Fog stuff. The claim was that it cleans glasses and visors, and more importantly renders helmet visors fog-free. This is a problem for me in winter riding, so of course I was impressed by the prop display at the convention where they had a humidifier set up, held up a partially-treated visor over it and lo and behold, the treated half did not fog up.

$25 later I wandered away from the fast-talkin' salesman with their product kit.

Well I guess you can see where this is going. I got home and tried it out (simple spray on/rub off directions), and breathed on my visor. Fogged right up. Tried a second application and went riding. Fogged up every time I stopped. Tried the Blaze 'wax' on a pair of eyeglasses... didn't clean them, and in fact seemed to distort the lenses a little bit. (Yes, I applied it properly.)

Went on the company's website last week. No physical address. No names of company officers or salesmen. I emailed them through a contact link asking to return their product, no response. Tried going back on the website yesterday and today... went right to godaddy.com domain site. "Notice: This doman name expired on 1/26/12."

I'm not in a blind fury about losing 25 clams. Yes I value money, but it's not like I got "taken" for a week's salary or anything. Just thought I'd share my personal product review here in order to warn fellow riders, and also to ask whether anyone else has tried Blaze and agree or disagree.

Thanks.<<

Revisiting the issue -- just because it irks me when con artists take advantage of people -- some folks on other sites suggested I write to the promoters of the show. So I did. We'll see what they say. In case anyone else was interested, the email addresses are [email protected], [email protected]. They work for the promoter who organizes the Progressive cycle shows.

Cheers!
