Having never heard of Tifosi but reading about them on their website, I thought I would give these sunglasses a try. At $53.99, the price was pretty decent, after all! But are they worth it?
First, the comfort factor. These are lightweight glasses (25g) that stay snug on your face thanks to the hydrophilic rubber nose and arm pads. They do not budge when I run, and I quite honestly forget that I'm wearing them after awhile! Second, protection factor. They block all UV rays out completely, and wrap around your face nicely, which gives full protection. Third, the changeable lenses. Mine came with matte black, orange, and clear. I have used all three and find they all feel good on the eyes - blocking glare but keeping visibility high. The lenses are fairly easy to change if you follow the instructions provided. Fourth, casing. The glasses come with a vinyl bag which doubles as a lens cleaner, and a hard case. Both are handy - the pouch for when you're on the go, and the case...
I absolutely love the Tifosi Tyrant sunglasses. I am a runner and really want to protect my face from sun damage as well as keep the bugs from flying in my eyes when I run. I ran a Half Marathon last weekend and wore the Tifosi's for the entire time. They felt great. They are so lightweight and comfortable I forget I have them on. Also, they are not too dark. The shading on them is just right. I am hard on sunglasses so, I very much appreciate the hard protective case that comes with them. Nice quality! I love that there is no frame at the bottom. It makes it easy to read my Garmin while running. My husband is really picky about his sunglasses and he now wants a pair the same as mine. I bought them for running but also wear them for driving. Once you have these, it's hard to go back to any other brand.
I love these glasses. I own a couple of pairs. I originally bought a couple of pairs of these glasses when I was found an order form in a magazine (in the days before Amazon) and liked them then. They look expensive, are built well, come with extra lenses which allow you to change performance and the look, but you wont cry when they break or you lose them. Thats the thing for me thats most important...I had an expensive pair and I left them in a store on time...they were instantly gone. So I was out a lot of money. Not with these, but the look and perform like a $300 pair.
