Everybody has a story. Every outdoor enthusiast has gone on an amazing, or a not so amazing, trip. When in the field at work, you go home with a story. Every SCUBA diver or skydiver has a story to tell.
When you bring Sven with you on your trip or to your job, we want to hear about it.
Did Sven help you see something you never noticed before? Did you avoid a headache because you got to keep sunglasses on the whole time? Was Sven not cooperating?
We've told you our story. Now we want to hear yours.
It did not work for me at all. After following all instructions of cleaning, etc, maximum what I was getting without mask fogging is one dive. So, after a few days of struggle, I switched to baby shampoo and was quite happy after that. I could not recommend this product. It is too expensive, require a lot of work and did not work to me.
Tried Sven Can Ski Anti-Fog/Anti-frost Gel spray for the first time this winter (saw an ad for this product in the Seattle Times a few months ago). We spend 4 months each winter in the Colorado Rockies. Temperatures are often in the minus digits, and keeping our ski goggles clear has been a challenge. This product works great ! The secret is to apply as directed on a clean dry lens, let dry for at least 10 minutes, then polish lens with a soft cloth.
I bought Sven for my wife. She is blind in one eye and has to wear glasses to protect her good eye. It has been a blessing for her after the first application it has worked perfectly. No more walking in the house and her glasses fogging up. She loves it!
Wanted to let you know how pleased I was to see your product work on one of my youth hockey players. I've been coaching youth hockey for a few years, and for the players that need to wear goggles when the skate, almost every single one of them has an issue with their glasses fogging up during a practice or game. When one of my players arrived to a rink with new goggles, I had your product in my bag and applied it while inside a cold hockey rink. I know that you're supposed to put the product on it room temperature, but her glasses were already fogging up. Thankfully, the product worked flawlessly and her glasses were clear the entire game. Her parents were amazed because they had used other products before and nothing ever seemed to work. Awesome product and I will be a Sven customer for life! -Chris Mader Youth Hockey Coach, Northern Cyclones Hudson, NH
I figure this won't be seen as it isn't a raving review...I'm a diver and was excited to hear about a long lasting defogger...one application to cover both dives. Must be applied to bone dry mask-mine, also tried on buddies wet mask that we towel dried. His fogged within 30 seconds of getting in the water. My mask had "smudge marks" even after polishing with supplied cloth. Went for my dive, it did great! I was impressed, keep it dry and you are good to go that is until water drops into the mask as it frequently does when you get back on the boat changing tanks. I never thought it would be a problem because this stuff was good for all day right? I jumped in, descended to 98' and bam! Instant fog! I had to continually flood my mask and swish it around the lens to clear it for 5 or so clear minutes of diving. Second dive not so much fun unfortunately, maybe this just isn't dialed in for 3-4 atm of pressure, better luck next time.
Thanks very much for the note. I appreciate you taking the time to tell us what is, and isn't working out "in the field". I'm in the process of making a few updates to the website and we will be updating our application instructions to reflect some of your comments. To touch on your comments though, the Sven Can See product mixture has a high water content in it, and since it's not hydrophobic, the material breaks down a lot quicker when it comes in contact with a lot of water. That all said, the gel needs to be applied to a completely dry surface, and if the mask gets a lot of water in it, it will need to be wiped dry and reapplied. Your experience falls in line with everything we've seen with the product during testing as well.
In the testing phase of the product, we had a diver test the product in a ton of different scenarios and this application process provided him the best result for the longest period of time.
It's very important that folks see everything that people say about the product, not just the overly positive stuff. And frankly, I see nothing negative about what you wrote.
Thanks again for contacting us. I greatly appreciate it.
