I snow plow with my 4-wheeler and when I'm zipping up and down my long driveway the snow hits my eyes like tiny needles and my eyes start watering profusely. I bought a cheap(er) pair of ski goggles but they fog up almost instantly and I dislike how large and bulky ski goggles are. Looking for some that won't fog up, and prefer something small(er) versus full-size ski goggles (and they don't have to necessarily be ski goggles, just goggles that won't fog up and have a band to keep them on my head). Like the price to be under $30, if possible.

Hoping someone has a recommendation.

I don't know if they'll work plowing as I havnt had the chance to try but I use bugz goggles chainsawing. They have wire mesh lenses. No fog

Was going to recommend the same but also don't know if they will work for his application.

You used to be able to buy stuff to put on the lenses, like a coat of Rain-X. It worked well back in the 80s, and I assume they still have the stuff at drug stores.

Your problem is with breath exhaust. If you also wear a face mask that directs your breath down, the goggles won't fog. I have a heavy shemaugh (sp?) I tie up and throw on a pair of sunglasses or clear motorcycle glasses (foam side seals.)

I've worn both a neoprene face mask that directs breath down, and a scarf wrapped, and my cheap(er) ski goggles still fog up.

Look into paintball "double lens" goggles. I had the same issue of fogging while playing until I invested in a set.

I would recommend the Pyramex V3G. I have them in yellow lenses. There isn't dick I can do to make them fog. Comfortable too, with several different wear options (goggle strap, glasses temples with or without retaining strap) and only about $14 on Ebay. They don't seal around the bottom, but I think thats due to my huge nose pushing them away from my face. 

I would also recommend the Pyramex I-Force. I don't have a pair myself, but they also come in several different lens options and are dual-pane, so they should resist fogging in even extreme conditions. About $14 to $22 on Ebay. 

Pryamex makes a ton of other stuff too, so if you don't like either of those options try browsing the rest of site and see if there's anything else you might like. Hope that helps.

Thanks! Those are exactly the type of goggles I'm looking for.
