    I sent emails to all the volunteers who agreed to test FogTech anti-fog. I have received back 8 as of today. Thank you for the quick replies.

    When I get past 20 responses, I will start posting some results if that is OK.

    The text of the questionnaire follows:

    Hello FogTech® Scuba Volunteer,

    I hope you received your samples of FogTech® advanced anti-fog and have had a chance to use it while diving. This is a short survey so that we can determine the capabilities of FogTech® anti-fog more accurately under real world conditions. Please take a few minutes to fill it out and let us know how it performed.

    The best way to complete this is to reply back to me with the original message included and survey filled out. Or you can cut and paste this survey into a new message back to me.

    I tested your product, and I have to say I was quite impressed. I can't wait to get my hands on some more. Good luck with your research, I do believe you've found a new market for your product.

    Having problems getting out and wet but I am hoping to do that in a couple weeks. BTW I will be testing it on a mask that has never seen water or been treated with anything, including toothpaste.

    Well I have only about 16 responses so far, and the overall response has been somewhat positive. I think it is a bit early to for me to judge.

    Here is how the 16 responded on the important questions:

    9. How long did FogTech® last?

    All day or more__4__ 4 hours_4 ___ 1 Hour_5 ___ Did not work for me__2 __

    10. Did FogTech® last more than one dive? Yes__7 __ No_2 ___ Did not try__6 ___

    14. Think about your dive and other products you have used for fogging. How would you compare your vision with FogTech® as opposed to other products or nothing?

    The Best__1 ___ Much Better__2 ___ About the Same__9 __ Worse__2 ___

    15. Would you buy FogTech® advanced anti-fog for diving? Yes__9 ___ No__5 ___

    When I get more responses, I can come to a solid conclusion.
