Default Lens fogging up

Is there something I can clean the lens of my Binos with to help keep them from fogging up on the outside when it is really humid

There is a product called Parker's Perfect that works pretty well. It is not a miracle but it's definitely helpful.

NO NO NO. Rain-X can damage optics (lens) coatings.

The fog clothes sold by sport google companies like scott work. It won't last all day so you need to re-apply. Also check ski shops, they have fog stuff for ski googles too.

My last pair of glasses has a hydrophobic coating that dissipates fog and water. It helps a lot. They still fog but I can see through it and it dissipates quickly. Some binoculars like bushnell legend and elite have what they call " rain guard" lense coating that does the same thing.
