The Oxford wind deflectors are only 20 dollars more and are similar to Hippo Hands. But seeing how often i drop my bike on the trails, I'd like quick access to the engine cutoff switch, I decided on the Giant Loop Bushwackers.
Was hoping my TW would mimic the Dilophasaurus from Jurassic Park. I rode in the 40s on Sunday and while still cold with thick goretex winter gloves on, my fingers were not freezing. In fact, my upper body felt a little colder. I wished i had a heated jacket sometimes. I was wearing a textile jacket with a thermal sleeved liner. My Jimbo shield had also come loose and does not stay upright anymore after bending the mounting posts from dropping the TW on the last couple of trails.
