As someone with a very, very bad mask, would this help prevent fog?

It would probably reduce it but you might as well put that $5 toward a decent mask.

While I can't vouch for that product specifically, I've never had much success with anti-fog sprays. I agree with Playdough, money is better spent on a good mask that has a legit double pane thermal lens.

I will say that my dad has tried several popular anti-fog products on his glasses that fog under his mask and none have helped much. Could be the material or coating of his glasses for all I know though.

honestly its 5 dollars which is nothing unless you gotta pay for shipping too, not sure how it works since i never buy anything online. might as well just try it. i know that fog doc seems to be really good for that or at least good enough that mike suggested getting it if you start having problems.

Get a thermal mask instead. I doubt this will help you much.

i'd rather have fogdoc. people seem to like it a lot, and it does seem to help based on my limited experience with it so far.

Besides having a great mask, the flexor fan is IMO the best product for anti-fog.  Eversince I've used it, I've never had a fogging problem since then (I wear glasses).  A bit pricey, but well worth it.

Something that works for swim goggles won't always work with masks. You don't breath into your swimming goggles

Fogdoc works the best

Well if the goggle lenses are dunked in water (I use them everyday for 2 hours) for a while and I take them out and try them out of the water and they don't fog while on my head... then I think it can hold up to fog...

What you could just do is try to find a THERMAL lens that could fit into your mask.

Or he could just put that money toward a mask that doesn't suck...
