Glad they're working for you. Mine are doing great; now into my 2nd winter season with them.

There's a monster hill I ride down about 3/4 of a mile from my house and I reach it before I've ridden far enough to warm up. With my regular clear glasses I used to get the worst ice cream headache when I'd roll down that hill in extremely cold temps. I had a sub-zero commute every day last week and with the goggles the brain freeze on this hill has completely gone away.

As others have noted, I do still have some occasional fogging/icing issues below about -5F after I've ridden 6+ miles. Mostly just towards the top of the lens, and rarely enough to impede my vision. But nothing like the problems I used to have with my glasses where they would ice over so bad that I'd eventually have to remove them and go without.
