I've used "Cat Crap" and it works pretty well.  It looks and feels like
some sort of bluish soap.

I think that it works by breaking down the surface tension of whatever fog
droplets form on the lenses.  The droplets then spread out in a film,
rather than diffacting the light coming through.

One caveat though... in really cold weather you get a layer of ice on your
lenses instead of frost.  Either way you can't see!

Has anyone tried the balaclavas and/or face masks with a mesh piece over
the mouth and an opening under the nose?  Do they work?  I'm OK as long as
I don't cover my mouth and nose up.
