Battle Visor Review
Battle Visor is a car visor that clips onto your existing visor and functions basically the same as a pair of polarized sunglasses. There is also a “sun spot blocker” which is a sliding segment of darker tint that allows you to add extra sun blocking when sunlight is directly in your eyes. The commercial for Battle Visor features military-inspired scenes and the regular “Atomic Beam” spokesman Hunter Ellis. It highlights the virtues of this car visor which can block the glare and improve vision. It’s not the first car visor featuring military scenes, as the competing product Tac Visor had also advertised in recent months.
At first glance, you might find the competing Tac Visor to be more impressive with its mirrored coating, curved design, and larger size. Even though on paper, Tac Visor should be the superior product, I experienced problems with it, namely warping in the extreme heat of Las Vegas. In fact, my Tac Visor warped so much that it ended up breaking when I tried to close it. I left Battle Visor out in the direct sun and it did not warp. While only speculation, I believe the plastic is thicker than Tac Visor, which is perhaps why it held up better.
Thus with Battle Visor, we have a straight (not curved) piece of tinted plastic that is not as large as the Tac Visor. This means that some drivers will need to not only flip down the Battle Visor, but also move the existing visor down in order to get the proper angle.
While it does filter out some glare and sunlight, I didn’t feel that it outperformed a regular pair of sunglasses. If you wear prescription glasses and don’t wear sunglasses, using Battle Visor could be a benefit because you can just wear your regular glasses and let the visor filter out sunlight.
Finally, when the sun was low in the sky, it still felt uncomfortable to my eyes, even with Battle Visor in action. The sun spot blocker does help, but it seems a bit sticky when moving it into place, and was not a complete solution to blocking out extreme direct sunlight.
I still have Battle Visor in my car, but I still tend to use sunglasses instead. I do think that this could be a good fit for those who wear regular prescription glasses while driving and don’t have a pair of prescription sunglasses. If you prefer to use visors instead of sunglasses, this is a viable option to consider.
