muni eye wear?

i am not sure but i think i read some where that is a good idea to wear sunglasses while muning if so has any one tried wearing squash glasses as they are clear for in the dark + the have and elastic strap so the can’t wiggle or fall off on more bonce trails also some are anti fog has any one tried this

There are a few different sunglass manufactures that make glasses with interchangeable lenses for different light conditions. I use Smith sunglasses with four different lenses, check em out.

You can get safety glasses from industrial safety shops.

They’re very cheap (start from £3.00) and come in different lense colours. They tend to be wraparound design so they stay on well.

I too wear Smiths; One of the reasons I chose them was for their interchangeable lenses feature. Another because they look cool! Check them out:
I wear the “District” Deja-Blue model:

hmm… attachment didn’t work. I’ll try again.

Anyway, I need to buy some anti-fog to put on my lenses. The weather’s starting to get cold, and with the heat my body produces when muniing, if i’m standing still for more than five seconds, they start fogging up. Does anyone know of a “make-it-yourself” home remedy for anti-fog? I heard the stuff in the stores is quite expensive.




Oddly enough tobaco can be used as an anti-fog home remedy. When I was a boy we had a small bag of it we used to rub on the front windsheild of our auto. Back then there wasn’t any Rain-X like products. The downside to using it on a pair of sun glasses is that it will likey stink. Of course a bottle of Rain-X is probably a LOT cheaper than a pack of cigerettes. :wink:


Toothpaste works well as an antifog agent. Just be sure to use some that is not abrasive. Smear some on the lenses and then rinse them off

Any mild detergent, very sparingly applied, should do. Try e.g. liquid
dishwashing soap. What it does is lower the surface tension so that
water does not condense in tiny droplets but in a smooth layer.

I wouldn’t use Rain-X for anti-fog, if you have very small droplets even the wipers won’t remove them when you have Rain-X on. Note: I like it on my car, but not when it’s misty or foggy.

Or you could go to any underwater dive shop and get some fancy commercial anti-fog for dive masks, which is, Ta-Da, diluted detergent.:smiley: :stuck_out_tongue: Just make sure you follow the directions or you can end-up foaming at the mouth or blowing bubbles with your nose;).

Seriously, dilute some liquid dish washing detergent, apply sparingly, dry, making sure that you don’t dry to well, you want to leave a thin film of detergent. That’s what many divers do, except the ones that have to much money.

Hi guys,

Thanks for all of the advice. Yesterday I tried the dishwashing soap trick. It worked pretty good. I got through about 2/3 of the ride (complete ride was three hours) wearing my sunglasses. By that time I was giving off a lot of heat. The lenses didn’t fog, they just got blurry. Last time I was only 20 minutes into my ride before they started fogging up!


My favorite solution (used to use on my swim team), is also the cheapest. Just spit on the lenses, and rub it around until the lenses seem clear. It may not last as long as detergent, but it’s cheaper, and you can reapply anytime :sunglasses: .
