I own a pair of Oakley 5 2.0 They fog up almost instantly in this cold weather in Michigan. It's even worse when I have my baclava on. Any suggestions on a good fog resistant pair of glasses? Thank you

Next time you have your baclava, have a cup of flaming sambuca, with three coffee beans thrown in. Should clear up one type of fog, but could cause another.
Don't buy new glasses (READ THIS FIRST!!!!)pben

I grew up playing ice hockey and wore a shield for many years. Fogging up was a huge issue, until I found the ultimate solution. AND IT WORKS. I have never tried this on my cycling glasses but am very confident it will work. At least it's worth trying before you drop $150+.

Take liquid Ivory Soap (I'm sure other brands would work but have never tried them) and squeeze a couple of drops on the lenses (not much required at all) - back is the most important here but front won't hurt. With you fingers, spread the soap around the lenses and let sit for about 20 seconds or so (nothing magic here). Wipe off with a clean rag. My shield NEVER fogged up. You can buy some anti-fog CRAP that's about $10 for a very small bottle, or $1.89 for a big oh bottle of Ivory Liquid Soap - and it looks like the exact same stuff.

Unrelated, but similar in concept..

I did the same with a cheapo locker mirror in the shower. I use it for shaving (face of course) and smear it with bit of soap and it stops the fogging. If it does, just smear it with a bit of soap again.
