Facemask/ Headcover

I am considering buying a scent reducing facemask (Scentblocker XLT or Scnet Lok Velocity). However, I would like to purchase one that does not cause my glasses to fog. Does anyone have a recommendation?

Thanks

Save your money. Don't buy the scentlok stuff. Just play the wind. IMO

I wear glasses, and I just use a Scent-Lok head cover, the kind with the hole big enough to pull down past your chin, or up over your nose.

I also wear a hat that I took a piece of one of those mosquito netting pull over see through things and sewed it along the front edge of the hat (ear to ear) so it hangs down in front of my face to hide my glasses, as long as i'm not breathing heavy my glasses don't fog up.

Get you one of these. You can wear your ball cap and keep a majority of your face covered and it won;t fog up your glasses.

Re: Facemask/ Headcover

My take is put a lot of thought in stand placement for both wind and a deer's line of sight and go high in the tree when you can. Stand placement is everything to a bowhunter. I never wear a mask or paint my face, unless I am bowhunting turkeys from the ground.

The older I get the better I was.

I agree,wearing glasses all my life I yet to find any kind of head net or mask that works with glasses.
It's a pain also but with face paint ya won't fog up.

I do not use a face mask unless it is extreme cold. I do wear a Jones type hat ever since many years ago I set some 100 yards from a hunting buddy and could see every time he moved his head because of his cap bill appearing and disappearing caused by the movement.
