Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bike at night in cold weather and wanted something to protect my eyes that was not a chunky set of snowboarder-lookin' goggles, partly because I felt that it would be inconvenient to carry and would look kinda dumb, and partly because it would reduce my field of vision. For some reason they don't advertise it very clearly, but these and other Tifosi models come with multiple lens colors including clear. This frame with the clear lens ticked every box for me. They're super comfy, they have fantastic coverage, and they have a great bend-don't-break rubberized construction that other Tifosi models have. I had minor fogging issues in bitter cold weather, but that's to be expected when you don't have the aforementioned chunky goggles. I'm thrilled with these and I don't think there's a sunglasses company with better value for your money than Tifosi.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bike commute in New England during all 4 seasons and got these to handle that horrible 32°F-45°F range where you're often battling cold rain and wind. Overall I'm pretty satisfied. They've been perfect above 40°. Below that can get a little uncomfortable, but I have terrible circulation and have struggled with all sorts of gloves, so YMMV. I have some liners that I can wear with them, or I just use my lobster claw gloves. The reinforced webbing between the pointer and thumb is crucial – I've had that stitching failed on a pair of Gore Wear gloves in just one season. I also like the fabric on the outer thumb for... well, it's better that I don't say it. Cons: it has a reflective patch but could use a bit more in that department, I felt a little dampness on my fingers after a *very* rainy 40 min. ride, and there's no smartphone pad (though I guess that might sacrifice some warmth or water protection). At the sale price I'm happy with what I got and I'm keeping 'em
