With colder temps for most of us, helmet visor fogging can be a clear issue, pun intended.

With my particular helmet, admittedly a crappy one, any temp below around 45 F = unavoidable fogging. Which led to cracking the visor open, even at speed. Which then led to eye watering. Which then led to wearing goggles under the helmet. Which then led to goggle-fogging at stop lights, and, the goggles really did not block all the wind, which led to watery eyes. All of us know these things are not fun or safe on a bike. Tried the Respro Foggy, and here are observations:

Easily installed in the helmet with the provided velcro attached to the sides, or "wings". The exposed velcro on this portion of the product is made to attach to most helmet cheek pads. Worked easily on mine. I would tell you now that my helmet is a Fulmer AFS2, but I'd rather not admit that here, shhh!!! Shoei, Arai, Schuberth, I know... I hope to get there soon.

What influenced me to try this, is the recommendation by most Pin-lock manufacturers to not use their product for night riding. I assume for "double-glare" and the like. Wanted a solution that can be used for any helmet, pinlock or not, and wouldn't affect night riding.

Once installed, which takes literally 30 seconds, you're done. It does cause a tighter fit when putting your helmet on, which is a slight annoyance. The pre-bent metal portion which surrounds the curve of your upper nose, is a bit snug but was not uncomfortable for me. This thing really works!

At 30-45 degrees, rain or dry, helmet without pinlock, visor closed = zero fogging. Very impressed. The motorcycle couriers from the UK were spot-on in using this. I can "see" why. Ok enough corniness. It just plain works.
