Sunglasses (Read 165 times)

    Love my Tifosi. So lightweight and comfortable that I forget I have them on.

     

    +1, I have been using these the past 2 years as well.  Cheaper than Nike or Oakley but more than the Ironman's seen here.

    What was I chasing again?

    Super B****

      Another vote for Tifosi, here.  I have the Slip, I bought them a couple of years ago and yesterday idiotically left them in my backpack since I thought my race would be sunnier than it actually was... the smoke lens got scratched.  I love them so much that I ordered replacement lenses.


      Needs more cowbell!

        I might be the lone dissenter when it comes to Tifosi.  I've had a few pair and found them to be overly fragile for the price.  For about the same price I have had MUCH better luck with Optic Nerve and they have a MUCH wider photochromic range.

        I shoot pretty things! ~

          Hmmm not bad.  May have to check at target.  Thanks.

           

          Tifosi glasses look nice, especially the jet wraps, but I've heard they run rather small.

           

           

          Hilarious, I have the very same ones from Target.  When my pair got damaged I found that Walgreens sells them online also and bought two pairs (they were on sale at $10ea then).  http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/foster-grant-iron-man-plastic-sunglasses-triumph/ID=prod6019377-product

            Another Tifosi wearer here, I am not a glasses keeper in general, usually losing them, scratching breaking etc.  And that is the primary reason for not going with Oakley, dropping around $200 on a pair that I might lose just does not compute with me. (though the Oakley do feel very nice)

             

            In running I can not stand extra 'stuff' bouncing around my face and I was very concerned, however I find the Tifosi Slip to be perfect. Enough cash that I will pay attention to them (ie not chunk them around) but well under $100.

              +1 for Tifosi. Great sunglasses and you can usually find pretty good deals on eBay.

               

              Yes.  I found a pair a few years ago for $40.  I have the lenses that darken with light.  It allows me to run with them on in the early morning when it's still dark.  This is great for the summer when I usually run in areas with a bunch of bugs flying around.  I use to get these bugs in my eyes until I found these glasses.
