About Tac Glasses Night Vision

Tac Glasses Night Vision are tinted sunglasses that sharpen visual clarity and augment color while night driving. The official product website is tacnight.com, which was registered in September 2017. The screenshot below shows how the product website looked in November 2017. The website was later updated to feature the Tac Brands spokesman Nick Bolton.

Tac Glasses Night Vision Review

If the idea of As Seen on TV nighttime glasses seems familiar, you aren’t mistaken. And if the name “Tac Glasses” also seems familiar, you still aren’t mistaken. Tac Glasses Night Vision is the nighttime followup to the popular Tac Glasses which began advertising in mid-2017 and continues to do so as of this 2020 update. This night version of their product is similar to several other night driving glasses to advertise in years past.

The good news is that amber tinted glasses like this are a popular commodity, and some consumers feel that they do reduce glare and enhance clarity while driving at night. The bad news is that there are so many viable options that Tac Glasses Night Vision may get lost in the crowd. You may recall older glasses in this genre such as Night View NV, HD Night Vision Wraparounds, or the more recent Night Sight, all of which sport the same amber tint as Tac Glasses Night Vision. There are numerous night driving glasses to be found in stores and online. ClearVision Night Optics is another version that looks remarkably similar – and only costs $7.

Another point to make is that some experts feel that these night driving glasses do not work. In fact, a company marketing a similar product called Nightsafe back in the 1990s was fined $125,000  for unfounded claims that it improved vision at night. It has been suggested that clear lenses with an anti-reflective coating may be a better option. To its credit, however, Tac Glasses Night Vision does include such a coating. I’m just not sure the yellow tint helps much beyond that.

The frames for Tac Glasses Night Vision are not the same as the regular Tac Glasses, which is good because the regular Tac Glasses frames are quite cheap and flimsy. I feel like these frames are sturdier than their daytime counterparts. When I attempted to bend the frames as shown in the advertising, they did bend without breaking, although the lenses were apt to snap out of the frame.

In the end, I found the original Tac Glasses to be akin to an ordinary pair of inexpensive sunglasses, and I would expect consumers to feel the same about the night version. That’s not to say that Tac Glasses are bad, only that they don’t stand out in a way that the advertising implies. I’m not sure if the night version will stand out either, especially when you can order a number of similar products online, or find them on almost any As Seen on TV store shelf.
