 I have to wear a gaitor when I fish to protect my face from the sun. When I do my sunglasses and even my regular glasses fog up badly. I have looked for a vented one and have not found one yet. Help!

Look into the products and practices that scuba divers use to keep their masks from fogging.

You must’ve not looked very hard. Aftco, Huk and Simms all make a vented buff.

There are vented ones. However, I still get fog with mine if it’s not really hot outside.

 

my solution has been to pull the gaitor down under my nose. Seems to help a lot.

I have vented Costa's and they still fog if I pull my buff up too high. Outside of having a fan built into the inside of the glasses, there's no true way to prevent this in the heat and humidity.

I've done that as well, but it kind of defeats the purpose of protecting your nose from the sun.

 

Maybe applying some rubbing alcohol or Rain-X to the glasses will help with fogging.

^ This coupled with a wide brim hat and my nose never gets burnt.

There's a product called cat crap that's supposed to prevent this. That's literally what it's called

Clever name tho, eh? I’ve never had a buff or anything anti fog, I just figured it was inevitable as I live in a humid jungle. My solution is to move my shades down my nose about 3/4”

If it's humid out there isn't much at all I can do.  I run into the same problems.
