lots of good ideas.. The dawn works, heating the lens works.. Breathing through the ears.. Ah, haven't had any luck with that..

I leave my helmet on Betzy's light when I'm busy doing something else... The light puts out enough heat to warm the helmet..

You could get a small lamp fixture with a 75 or 100 watt bulb and set the helmet on top of it.. The heat will rise and heat the helmet and lens

A nose mitten? I seem to remember an advertisement mentioning something like that.

I suffer from the same problem.. The only time it stops running below 60F is when I become dehydrated..

Maybe once I master breathing through the ears the nose won't be a problem anymore.. Then I'll have runny ears.. Ichkk...

I've always suffered from sinus issues, so I know how yall feel, my shield will fog up if I don't remember to keep my mouth shut.

I'm not gonna say nothing about a woman that can breath through her ears, chuckles

At least I can wipe out the helmet....

The worst are when it's really cold, and then it's "snotsicles"....

And then I remembered this: "The glazed donut monster"

I was welding outside today on my mail box, a victim of the snowplow. I didn't have a problem with fogging, but the build up of snow inside the helmet was ridiculous. Can you say, "Blizzard"?

I think "Aaaauuugh !" was more appropriate.....
