HD Aviators Review
HD Aviators are amber-tinted sunglasses which have been seen on television ads for over 5 years under the name “HD Vision Aviators.” The product appears to have been slightly rebranded for its 2016 television campaign, dropping the word “Vision” from the product name.
The “HD Vision” brand has produced several similar products over the years, such as HD Vision Wraparounds and HD Vision Visor. While the HD Aviators have returned, a close inspection of older models looks as though the design may have been slightly updated.
The good news is that HD Aviators generally work pretty well. They have a pleasant amber tint which tends to improve clarity and does offer a better color spectrum over dark tinted glasses. Another “pro” of the product is that earlier models have been uniformly positive, giving it about a 4-star rating.
Although not “cons” for the product, there are a number of things to consider before whipping out your wallet to take advantage of the TV offer. First, you can still find older models in stores for $10 or less. You can also find earlier models online, such as this black pair for $7.
Also, while HD Aviators are amber-tinted, they are not polarized, which means they don’t offer the best glare reduction available.
For sake of comparison, you may want to take a look at the Highlander Polarized Sunglasses by Flying Fisherman which are highly rated, offer the same features as HD Aviators, and have polarized lenses.
While the amber tinting may not elicit the “wow!” responses shown in the commercial below, these glasses are actually pretty good for an As Seen on TV product. You may want to look for them locally or online to sidestep the shipping costs of the current “double offer.” There are also numerous competing products which perform equally as well.
