What is everyone using to stop dew?

I just got 25x100 binoculars and dont want to add to the allready top heavy binoculars so dont want dew shields, so ordered 2 heated dew straps for objectives and eyepieces as I use dew straps on my scopes have the dew heated controllers allready.

I feel dew shields just add extra weight to allready front heavy binoculars and the strips are the lightest solution.

i bought two four inch flexible dew shields for 4" refractors and they are extrememly light weight and sit flat in the bino case.

Kendrix dew heaters would help also but i never really had dew issues here in calif. i did it to help stray light from coming into the binos

I use chemical hand warmer packs with a rubber band on my fracs.  I'd think they'd would work on my binos, but it's not been necessary yet to try them.
