I've had good luck with the Uvex Stealth with antifog or antifog/antiscratch
coating ( ), but NOT
the Stealth OTG or the Stealth Reader.  The latter two don't fog up but on
hot-natured folks, the moisture forms a "sheet" that makes it like looking
through a glass of water.

I've also had good luck using Uvex's antifog wipes on other good indirectly
but well-vented goggles.

If you find one, I would like to know which one so I can get some too.

 I have a researcher wants to work with one of the nastier acute toxins and
is pushing back against wearing safety goggles (our requirement when working
with acute toxins, among others) because "within 5 minutes of wearing them,
they fog up".  We are currently using the "Revolution" goggle with Visiclear
antifog coating (from Jackson Safety)...I haven't heard anyone else
complain, but maybe this researcher has a really high body temperature
normally, or just sweats a lot, who knows?

 If you can recommend a different goggle--and I'd be willing to pay $25-40
for a pair if they WOULD NOT FOG--I would be very interested.  I am thinking
that facilities handling Select Agents and/or manufacturing facilities
handling acute toxins have people in these for a good couple of hours at a
time.  I don't need to know what your 'nasty' is--but I am very interested
in hearing from anyone at commercial facilities as well as academic.

 Many thanks to all-
