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 allows you to see better by reducing glare and enhancing colors. 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. The packaging doesn’t reveal much, either.

Tac Glasses appear to be a respectable pair of polarized sports/military sunglasses, offering a familiar design. I own a pair, and found that they provide decent clarity and do reduce glare. They don’t appear to be made of the highest quality materials, and feel to me like a $10-$15 pair of sunglasses from Walmart. Additionally, I don’t particularly like the shape of the lenses for purely aesthetic reasons, but that is strictly a matter of taste.

There are small corners at the bottom edge of the lenses that I felt slightly poking my nose. It wasn’t a deal-breaker, but it’s a slightly uncomfortable reminder that they are there.

There is certainly nothing wrong with Tac Glasses, but also nothing particularly extraordinary about them either. They function pretty well, but I’m not sold on the shape and design. The advertising doesn’t do a good job of letting consumers know that there are three different versions of Tac Glasses, because it’s marketed as if it were a single product. They have the Original, plus one for increased glare reduction and another for night vision. The ads state that Tac Glasses are good in low light, but when I took them in my car at night, I could barely see.

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.

Tac Glasses do reduce glare and enhance colors.

Alternatives

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.

    Just got mine. Really cheaply made. I won’t expect mine to last long. These do not bring out any colors. They are so reflective and darkly tinted that you will think that the sun just set as everything turns dark gray. I tried to use them driving and quickly decided that I lost too much clarity in the dimness of fast moving objects and removed them. The only place I would consider using these would be on a bright and sunny beach where you would want to block reflected sun from the water and white sand. I think about three or 4 pairs of these lined up would have enabled one to look at the eclipse.

    I’ve ordered twice from the website and both times I got the confirm email and saw the transaction in my account, then never got my glasses and both times all digital record of the transactions disappeared from my email and the bank, but I saw no difference in my balance after the money was paid. Something stinks about this website! I’ve lost $60 and Tac has nothing to say.

    Ordered many months ago. Called a month ago, talked to a very hateful “:B” She said they were on back order. No debit on my acc. so not going to worry about it.
    From the sound of things they aint worth having anyway!!
