I´m not sure. My oakleys bag´s the best ever, but it works because i clean my oakleys with it of course...if you try cleaning cheap googles with any cheap bag of course it won´t be the same!!!!

A tip: let your goggles dry before putting them away, that way you avoid stains
If you aren´t living on the edge, you´re taking up too much room

I use a tissue to clean my goggles. But dont clean the inner lense if its moist. It messes up the anti-fog layer that they spray in. I just put my goggles into the bag that it comes in and use the same bag to clean the lense when its dry.

Thanks. I'll check on that. I use the Oakley bag for my Oakleys, but the aftermarket bag is for my Scotts, which didn't come w/a goggle bag.

Damn, I wish I would have found this thread before this season. I did everything that everyone said not to do. Oops, the goggles still work awesome though :P Now I just have to stop those bad habits.

# of chemicals can be used as anti fogging agent. soaps, shaving creams, gelatin, etc.
however, not all lenses are friendly with those agents. so make sure you research before trying with your own lens.

if you already scratched up your goggles, is there anything you can do about it besides replacing the lens?

Keljai, if you read above, someone mentioned an anti fog spray called "cat piss." Just stray that on and your anti fog should be okay. If not, maybe you got lucky and didnt remove the layer yet. If you did, you can always buy new goggles =P. Or just a new lens.

Thanks for the information on the antifog layer and scratches. Just one more question, do replacement lens come with an antifog layer already applied to it?

over the counter sprays are okay, but the prescription ones are best.  sometimes its hard to get though if they dont think you really need it, so you might have to get it from a dealer.  just be careful about not getting caught.

When you set your goggles down, always put them lens-side up.
2
Don't throw your goggles onto the floor of your car or into your boot bag.
3
When you're not using them, set your goggles aside in their case, so as to avoid unintentional slides onto the floor, into the street, or other mishaps.

If you have Oakley goggles with an Iridium finish, never wipe them when they are wet, wait for the lens to dry and then you the microfiber bag to wipe down. Otherwise you can scratch your expensive Oakley lenses.

and never wipe the inside of your goggles if you get water in them.  it will scratch the crap out of them and make them unusable.

One thing I like to do is to clean the inside of my lens with the hand dryers in the toilets.
if there's droplets or I've fallen and there's snow on the inside, on a toilet trip, I dry the inside with the hand dryers.. =)

I dry mine with a towel on exterior.  Blowdry the interior when you are finished to get it dryer faster and put it away faster.

You can take the lens out and dab the inside lens with the goggle bag.

theyre made to withstand that kind of stuff. if they get wet, just let em airdry. dont pick at the foam too much cause they are relatively fragile compared to the rest of the frame, but in general, no. water will not damage it

Any tips on how to clean the inside of Oakley lens without lossing the anti-fog?
I have been religious about not touching the inside lens but they have accumulated some water marks.

^ That's a good question because I have always lived with the philosophy that you should never touch the inside of your goggles lens, some say it messes up the anti-fog coating.

Also, never wipe the inside of the lens when it's wet for the same reason (messes up the anti-fog layer).

Here's an interesting look at cleaning goggles:
