Nikon Fog Eliminator

Do these work? Also, I understand the Pentax DCF binocs have a hydrophobic coating. Would using these wipes effect that coating?

I've used them on eyeglasses in very cold weather. They helped for a short time, but were a long way from eliminating the fogging problem I was having. They might help on your binos, but I would predict it would only be short term. Doubt whether there would be any issue with the Pentax coatings, but I would be leery of constantly wiping anything on a bino lens. More lens coatings get scratched from overdoing it with cleaners and lens cloths than anything out in the field.
