Having used various brands of sunglasses, I find this model to stay clean from smudges for me better than others. This seems to be because their contact points are only the nose bridge and the temples. This also provides good air circulation like my old Gargoyle sunglasses no longer available. That helps keep them from fogging up too much and also keeps my eyes cool in a very humid climate. Some others encapsulate my eye sockets too much. I find these easier to clean than some of my other sunglasses. I chose the photochromatic lens version over the fixed lens colors. They work well for me, but some may like darker lenses than these get in full sunlight. I can use these from dawn or heavy clouds to full daylight without worry. They are also tall enough for the top frame rail not to block my vision when in an aero position on my bike. Neither the top or bottom frame rails touch my face, which helps air flow around them for my face shape. They are not perfect. No sunglasses are. But I choose them over the other ones in my inventory.
I was interested in a larger size pair of sunglasses, it's not crazy big. Also price/value was a factor. I think Tifolsi found the sweet spot with Aethon. I also like that they can be worn with or without the bar at the top of the lenses, depending on the position you plan to ride in. Highly recommend these sunglasses!
I've been wearing Oakley Flackjacket sunglasses for years but the lenses seem small compared to newer styles. The larger lenses seem to keep more wind out of my eyes.
