    I use a regular flip welding shield. unfortunately in the colder weather it fogs up due to the moisture from my breath and due to the cold I guess

    anyone got any ideas on how to solve that, ? OR is it possible to get a shield with a heated lens so that it doesn't fog up, heated lens would be like the back window of the car

    You can use an anti fog spray which is available in any motorcycle shop or website.

    A drop of washing up liquid rubbed on with your finger then polished off with a tissue works,

    Hold your breath while you weld or get a piece of pipe and make a snorkel so your breath goes behind you :D

    Adapt it to suit a breath guard.
    Mine steams up when it's particularly cold until the heating catches up. It's only a case of warming the mask up before use. Your warm breath onto a cold adf is going to steam it up. They'll all do it.
