Highway, Intercraps - Great and keeps the wind pressure off your chest. Enough wind gets around at higher speeds to keep you cool.
Backroads - Less wind getting to your body means less cooling. Not enough pressure on chest at medium speed to warrant blocking it.
Off road - Sucks. I hit my chin on it once because when standing and leaning forward a bit, it's right in your way.
Below 50 degrees - BINGO, we have a winner! I intended to do more winter riding and blocking the wind obviously helps keep warmer.
