Who should buy this: People who like to ride their bike comfortably and be easily seen Who should not buy this: If you listen to fashion tips from people who own shoes they can't walk in and think wearing spandex is the height of fashion. I have owned this for 2 years now. I bought it for the sun (which it does block very well) and to have a brim while riding at night to shield car headlights (which it also does well). The set up took some fiddling to make it so the brim wouldn't fly off the helmet, but is now firmly in place and I haven't had any issues . I used a bit of string to tie it to some vents in my helmet in the beginning so that if did fly off, I wouldn't have to stop and turn around in the event that it did. I keep the string on because it is large and sometimes gets caught on stuff while walking around and can pop off (but not while riding). What I was not expecting was how well it blocks the rain from my eyes and how much people notice me while wearing it. Everyone can agree that a rain block would be a welcome feature, but being noticed took some time to get used to. I paired this brim to a florescent yellow helmet, and it is VERY noticeable. Fellow cyclists and pedestrians look at me either with smiles, or I might get a comment from a road biker on my fashion sense (both positive, neutral, and derisive). Drivers can't miss me, as I see their eyes following me -- it is not ordinary looking and it is so bright. Overall, this accessory is a huge win. It is highlight functional and highly visible. And for those who think it looks silly -- it's better to look like an idiot while riding than not be seen!
