Right, when it rains, it pours here on our neck of the woods, so I am asking you guys: When you ride in the rain, do you put rain repellent on your goggles?

I have heard of many cures like Rain-X (not good for plastic), and Carnauba wax, even Armor All and Pledge on your goggle lenses. My Scott 89Xi and my MX O frame's both due for a lens change so I figured it'll be a good time to test this experiment.

What do you guys think?

New lenses with some tear-offs should do the trick. I clean my lenses with rubbing alcohol and that makes the water bead up and keeps them from fogging.

I've used some anti fog stuff called Cat Crap or something like it, I'll have to dig it out. Perhaps a product like that might work on the outside too? You still have to see through it while it keeps the water off. I've never used tear offs, but I don't understand how the rain doesn't just seep in the top and get on all of the tear offs. @Colin McCarthy Very appropriate avatar for the conversation.
