NOT for People with Glasses,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seirus Innovation Men's Neofleece Scarf Combo (Sports Apparel)
This mask does not pair well with my glasses, ultimately causing them to "fog up" during outdoor activities (hunting, shoveling snow, skiing, etc). Don't get me wrong, this mask is very comfortable and serves it's purpose well. In fact, I would likely give a five star rating if I didn't wear glasses. Side note: This mask is velcro adjustable, although you want to get the right size. I would recommend a Medium if your fitted hat size is less than 7, and a Large if 7 and over. A medium is pretty small so I couldn't imagine an adult needing anything smaller.

Kind of depends on volume, wind, etc. Sometimes a few breaths out the nose helps. Maybe cut a little bigger hole in the mouth area to limit pressure blowing your exhaust upward.

I have the issue too but am able to somewhat overcome it by aiming my breath down, i.e. by retracting my bottom lip and breathing out through my mouth. It takes some getting used to but it totally eliminates the problem of fogging.

I modified the product to be more glasses friendly.
I took an inexpensive disposable dust mask from a home improvement store and removed the bendable metal strip that molds the nose of that mask around the wearer's nose. I then used an X-acto knife to cut a small hole in the neoprene foldover roll at the top/nose of the combo mask/scarf and slipped the bendable metal strip into the neoprene roll. This hole can be quite small because neoprene is very stretchable and will accommodate the larger width metal strip.
Now the combo mask can be molded to fit around the nose, just like the dust masks can be. This seriously reduced the fogging I experience.
EDIT: While I find the Seirus product useful with the modification, I have recently started using this product instead: Chaos - CTR Mistral Neck/Face Protector I prefer the CTR Mistral because it slips over the head rather than velcroing in the back and is generally more secure & comfortable. I haven't had much issue with fog with it either, but if I ever do I will simply perform a similar mod to it.
