SVEN CAN SEE ANTI- FOG GEL

Backpacker - - NEWS -

OUR TAKE Con­sider this Bi­naca-size spray the next best thing to bat­tery-pow­ered gog­gles—and it’s only $11. Spray on the in­side and out­side of your lens (at room tem­per­a­ture), wipe it off with a dry cloth, and boom, you’re fog-free for a day. (One tube delivers some 50 uses, the com­pany says.) The mix­ture is pro­pri­etary, but Sven Can See says it’s a non-al­co­holic, biodegrad­able gel. What­ever the com­po­si­tion, it kept our testers’ gog­gles clear down to sin­gle dig­its. When the temp dropped to 4¡F on a blus­tery tour out­side Breck­en­ridge, one tester got fog around the edges of his glasses while skin­ning, but it dis­si­pated as soon as he stopped climb­ing.

TRAIL CRED “I kept Sven Can See in my shell’s chest pocket all sea­son,” one tester says. “I reap­plied it ev­ery other tour and stayed fog-free, even on re­sort days.” $11; 3 oz.; svencansee.com
