I lost my beloved Oakleys this weekend on a run and am evaluating what to buy and I came across a Tifosi ad in Men;s Journal magazine. Any thoughts? Anybody wearing them or have tried them. Many thanks.

I have a pair. Don't remember the exact model but I love them. Lightweight, durable(so they seem so far), great on the road. The only problem is if you're looking into head on sunlight at dusk they don't filter enough light out for me and it makes seeing very difficult but i don't know if any sunglasses could filter that light out. The photochromatic lenses are great for me but everyone has their own preference on how dark they should get. I usually forget I'm wearing them til I start to sweat and get a drop or 2 on the lenses.

Thanks - went ahead and bought a pair of Tifosi Slips and a pair of Oakley Fives. Might as well be safe.....

You'll like them. At $40-$60 they are less than 1/2 the price of Rudy's etc... but they aren't the junky $19.99 "sport" glasses. Good quality, very sturdy. I've used mine for running and cycling and racing for 2 seasons. They aren't even scratched.

I have the Tifosi Tyrant with the Fototec "Light Night" lens.
They are great!
They darken enough to ride all day in the sun, then lighten enough to ride at night.
No need to carry a second pair of glasses if the ride lasts past sunset.

I wore them today for a sprint tri and had no issues whatsoever. In fact, liked them a little better than my Oakleys because my pair has this little wind slit above the top of the lens and below the frame that I could see out of - the frame on my Oakleys was always in the way and hindered my vision. These do not. Thanks for the help.
