Is there anything you can put on them to keep them from fogging up? Cause the other day I missed a buck of a life time cause my scope fogged up on me.

But keep in mind that the parkers will only prevent the exterior from fogging.  If your scope is not sealed up good interior fogging will happen and there is nothing you can do there.

I'm about to try something brand new from Nanofilm called Clarity Defog-it. Yes, it's safe for all coated lenses.

If that doesn't work, a neoprene scope cover might help. I've used those successfully to keep snow out of optics while traveling through the trees. If I think I'm going to have a chance to shoot I'll pop it off (using one with a strap sewn into it, looped around the barrel). By then, I'm usually carrying the rifle more horizontal so nothing gets on the lenses.

I'd appreciate some feedback on this product when you get the opportunity.

I have seen this a few times starting with my Dad. He did not need glasses but my brother did.
Do not know what was used at the time, but it was foam then. I also worked with a guy years ago, that did the same.

I would be a bit leery about trying that, who knows how it would react with the coatings on your scope or binos.
