That's a good point you raise.... the shroud is simply a black sheet of fabric draped over my head, rather than a tight fitting hood or anything like that so there is still ample room for body heat to escape. I still get fogging, but tends to be a problem only on really cold dewy nights. With the shroud, the problem is no worse than if I simply cup my face with my hands (infact the latter tends to create more fog problems).
