I have tried several others, both cheaper and more expensive, but every other pair of sport glasses I've tried always find a way to fog up on me when I work up a sweat under the right conditions of temperature, humidity and air movement. In a racquetball court, the air doesn't move much, unlike outdoor tennis or biking, etc. If the gym facilities people are not on the ball (so to speak) or management is trying to save money by not keeping it cool inside, my goggles can fog up from my sweat.
This has happened to me with every type of goggles except for these Ektelon goggles which have an air venting "stand-off" strip along the forehead. I have never had these fog up on me, under any conditions that I have encountered on the racquetball court or anywhere else. It's odd, because there are other brands which appear to have taken this "trapped air" effect into account in their designs, since they also have some type of venting system, typically holes along the tops of the lenses, or gaps above the lenses... But every single one of those others has failed me and has fogged up under certain circumstances, where this Ektelon set with its "entire top edge open as a vent" has never once fogged up on me.
I'm done with testing and hoping for a cheaper alternative. At $20 on Amazon ($25 at most stores), these are neither the cheapest nor most expensive, but they are hands down the best. I will never bother with anything else, and god help me if they stop making these and I have to start drilling extra holes in some other cheap brand to get relief from fogging up.
After reading reviews made about these glasses prior to purchasing, overall they were pretty accurate. The lenses will not fog until you have an intense game and your face begins to sweat. Once you've reached that point, these lenses fog like any other lens.
I wear a Halo head band (http://www.amazon.com/Halo-Headbands-H2BLACK-Headband-Black/dp/B002JS64LU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1400244859&sr=8-1&keywords=halo+headband) and after awhile, moisture still manages to get through the Halo band, but the sweat band on the glasses will stop it. When I take off the glasses to remove the fog, I have to also remove the moisture away from the glasses headband or else it will eventually make its way to my eyes.
Just by withstanding a couple face shots, these glasses get a 5 out of 5 rating.
I would say to stay away from these. I hate the $12 glasses and how they fit, but I needed to use them several times when these things would crumble.
170706: 5*_Seems simple. Goggles that don't fog. After 3 purchases, this one model does it right. Nice fit. Now I can play without pausing to wipe my goggles!
