Tac Glasses Review
When I saw that the “Tac” brand was back with another commercial featuring Nick Bolton, I wasn’t sure if I should cringe or laugh – based on some of the previous TacLight brand commercials I’ve seen (in particular Tac Bat, but that’s another story). Fortunately, the commercial for Tac Glasses isn’t quite as cheesy as some of the brand’s previous offerings.
With Tac Glasses, we have a pair of polarized sports/military/tactical sunglasses that allow you to see better by reducing glare. The commercial does a reasonable job of demonstrating how such glasses work, without actually using the word “polarized” or really giving a great deal of detail about the product itself. Does it provide UV protection? Are those polycarbonate lenses? We just don’t know.
Tac Glasses appear to be a respectable pair of polarized sports/military sunglasses, offering a familiar design. I think that if you like the way they look in the advertising, you’ll be generally pleased with them. The cost is on par with the competition, and there is no shipping if you only buy one pair.
Speaking of shipping, Tac Glasses have only appeared on my radar very recently, and seems to be a brand new product. If it is being test marketed, you should probably expect slower shipping times than you’ll find on Amazon. Test marketed products are often produced in very limited numbers until they determine whether or not there is enough interest to go into full production. If it’s a hot seller, the initial stock is quickly exhausted and another production run must be initiated before all orders can be filled.
I don’t know if I would believe the commercial’s claim that “There’s just nothing like them on the market today.” As I note below, these types of sunglasses are actually quite common.
There are a number of “tactical” or “military” sunglasses to be found in stores and online. This pair of COSVER polarized sunglasses is quite close in design and function to Tac Glasses, and can be purchased for about $20, with Amazon Prime shipping. This model by Torege has even higher ratings with a price of about $22, and offers five interchangeable lenses for various situations.
