The NFXs view size is obviously decreased, however not to an unbearable amount. I have never really had the opportunity to ride with a smaller size goggle, so it was definitely noticeable. I think I noticed the shrunk down size the most on the sides, however the lens quality made up for it. (COAL / RED IONIZED lens). It also is still designed for a medium sized face, so it is still fairly wide compared to a lot of other brands. In the sunlight, these lenses are amazing, zero glare and they are UV protective. The anti-fog is very high quality, just as the regular NFX, hiking and balaclavas have not been a problem for me so far.
Again, as similar to the NFX, the only thing i was disappointed about was the fact that it only came with one lens.
I would definitely recommend these goggles as a great sunny day goggle.
