Do Tac Glasses Really Work?

Do Tac Glasses Work?It may seem a little strange that we would choose to talk about sunglasses when the winter is just about to hit many of us. However, the sun still shines in winter and sometimes with the glare there is an even greater need for sunglasses. We have decided to talk about something a little different than just the regular sunglasses and this is the Tac Glasses.

Tac Glasses are offered by Bell Hpwell and they have been designed based on military technology. They are supposed to be able to reduce glare, enhance colors and give better overall vision clarity.

The Claim
The promoters of Tac Glasses are saying that they are made with new light filtering technology that dramatically helps to reduce glare plus by having color enhancement with what you are seeing this is supposed to give you better clarity. They say that these Tac Glasses can deal with any type of environment.

The Hype
They hype is focusing on the technology that is built into the Tac Glasses which is supposed to be the same as what the military relies on. This is meant to boost the integrity and validity of the technology.

The Cost
It will depend on where you are going to buy the Tac Glasses but if you buy them from the promo site then you can pick them up for $19.99. If you are a Amazon shopper then you can buy them there for $34.44 which is a big price difference.

The Commitment
Not much of a commitment needed for the Tac Glasses other than you have to remember to take them with you wherever you go where you may have need for them. With them being so reasonably price you may want to pick up a second pair so you can leave one in the car.

These are not the first type of glasses to come out on the market making these claims. However, similar types may be expecting a lot more money for the purchase of them. It still comes down to whether the Tac Glasses can live up to the claims being made about them. It would appear for a few they are very happy with the Tac Glasses but to date there are several that are not all that impressed with them. For these ones they are complaining that the glasses make everything too dark, or they are too bulky to store.

Final Tac Glasses Review

With what we have seen and heard the Tac Glasses as of yet are not impressing us enough to go beyond a try/buy ratng. We feel that they may be okay for some depending on the expctations that they are going to place on them, but they certainly don’t seem to be gearing up to be a total crowd pleaser. There are no doubt other types of glasses on the market that can and have been classed as top performers.

Our Recommendation
If you still want to invest in a pair of sunglasses that are being hyped as being at least a little bit different then you may want to check out the Night View Glasses.

What do you think? Does Tac Glasses work or not?

I was eager to purchase this product as I believed the advertisement. What a joke! They are cheap, uncomfortable, and a total scam. Very disappointed.


Tom Matthews February 6, 2018 at 2:12 am

I ordered two pair of the HD Tac glasses with the extra night vision lenses. this was over 1 month ago. I was charged a total of $88.13 on my credit card. I have yet to receive them but they took my money. I’ve tried to reach their customer service department by phone @ least 8 times during the hours they say they are available. have yet to get ahold of any of them and when I check my order status I’ve found no shipping confirmation. so far this whole site is a ripoff scam to get you mailing & credit card info.


Aaron February 9, 2018 at 6:44 am

DONT Buy Global Shop TAC Glasses. They are false. Put them on and they are so dark you see nothing, The advertisments show they enhance vision. The complete oposite. They are cheap plastic.

The main reason not to buy is CANCER. These glasses are made from plastic that causes cancer. There is a warning on the box. Calif. Prop 65 Warning. “This product contains chemicals known to the state of california to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm”

They will harm a pregnant womans baby firstly and give you cancer.

FRAUD totally to use plastic that causes cancer in a product that is designed to prevent eye damage.


Cancer is fun February 11, 2018 at 10:02 pm

Lol, you will have to live naked in the Amazon jungle if you want to avoid cancer-causing chemicals.

pfwag March 4, 2018 at 2:14 pm

You’re not supposed to be eating them, nor most any other plastic. Oh, and smoking pot will probably give you cancer too.


Dk May 9, 2018 at 3:44 am

Smoking pot doesn’t give you cancer, eating processed foods does pfag. Read it up ya brain washed yank


marian March 5, 2019 at 3:57 am

justplain old night vision glasses (that go over Rx glasses price $12 are just as good.


Grmrsan June 19, 2018 at 6:42 pm

The prop 64 warning is in almost everything in Ca. Melting and ingesting large amounts of plastic “could” cause a problem, but CA requires the warning for anything that has even a minute amount of dangerous chemical. Almost anything manufactured has SOMETHING that can cause problems if ingested in large amounts.

Can’t see magic eagle on my computer screen as promised!

TAC GLASSES ARE NOTHING like was expected….NOTHING like was advertised…..Customer service people are terribly rude…..
DO NOT BUY THESE……………..throw your money in the trash can where perhaps a homeless person can find it and buy some food.


anwar February 26, 2018 at 4:34 pm

the worst quality ,,,Liars,it will be more worth it to donate these money to a charity org.they will send you free stuff has more quality than this crab….if you try to return it,it is more head ache ,so save your money and don’t buy it…..


pfwag March 4, 2018 at 2:12 pm

Was investigating them but no listing or talk about the glasses blocking eye damaging UV put a stop to that.


Jeffrey Bridges March 5, 2018 at 3:25 pm

Remember when we were kids and the teacher emphasized on proofreading what you write/type? Now I see why the teacher was so adamant about that principal. Whoever wrote this gives me the impression that they were probably drunk and/or just didnt care enough to proof read so they wouldn’t look drunk. Either way, how much weight should I give this review if the author was so lazy that they couldnt proofread what they wrote?


Jason May 15, 2018 at 12:53 pm

Principle. Principal is a person.


Annette June 24, 2019 at 3:24 am

You didn’t proofread your message either. In the first sentence the word should be “principle” as in rule. Spelled principal means main. Second sentence also contains a grammatical error; i.e., should be written as a contraction — didn’t . . . Last sentence should say “author was so lazy that he or she couldn’t proofread what he or she wrote? The word author takes a singular pronoun.


Brian March 7, 2018 at 12:35 am

Bell+Howell is a very old US company. It’s a shame they don’t know the difference between a Bold Eagle and an American Eagle.


'Merican Mike June 18, 2018 at 2:37 am

Nice one there Daryl,
How about you learn the difference between bold and bald you two timing son of a gun.
Also Dave,I know about you and my sister and your mum, sleep with one Tac covered eye open pal.

One more thing Darren, I don’t like your face, change it before I change it for you.
Thanks Bud,


DeWaren Clark March 19, 2018 at 1:11 am

Hello I am look to see if you make the tac glasses in a clip on or some thing like that. Need to know because I ware Glasses and would like some tacglasses tto fit on my glasses . Do you make any like that.

Humbly Yours
DeWaren Clark


Disappointed Buyer March 31, 2018 at 8:45 pm

DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY. These glasses don’t enhace anything, color, images, etc… . They just shade/darken what you are seeing like any “old-fashioned” sunglasses have been doing for decades. complete rip-off. The commercials are obvioulsy using CGI technology to produce the images as supposedly seen through these lenses.


Matthew mapham April 18, 2018 at 2:29 am

The TAC glasses are a scam. I bought two pairs and each broke on the very first day of using them. They do not enhance your vision. It is just another global shop direct rip off item. Don’t bother wasting your time and money


Joe Kistner April 20, 2018 at 2:33 am

Tac glasses are very poor quality and do not give proper protection against the sun rays from the top or side. They are very uncomfortable to wear and have sharp edges. Buyer beware, I am giving my glasses away, 10 pair to be exact. False advertisement should be addressed here. Another scam job.


Another scam job April 23, 2018 at 10:22 pm

Rip off !!! Don’t waste your money. End of the ear piece scratches the lens. I was very careful to carry the tac glasses in the provided bag. With the ear pieces folded to fit inside the bag, the end scratched the plastic lens and obscured my vision. Very disappointed


Steve Gaylord April 25, 2018 at 11:04 pm

Mine broke while I was sitting on an airplane. I called customer service and talked to Nancy. She said to just send them back along with a copy of my receipt and they would replace them. It cost me $7.00 just to send them back and guess what, I’ve never seen the replacement. So much for the guarantee.


Dave S September 28, 2018 at 11:17 am

These Tac Glasses are absolute crap.
I bought them of an Australian shopping channel, 2 sets and both broke in less than 3 weeks apart even from normal use.
Apart from that, they were no different than $10 petrol station sunglasses I bought before and no special optics.
Avoid them……..


Greg April 28, 2018 at 10:55 am

I purchased 2 sets of these TAC glasses and found they seemed to make everything very dark.. I had to lift them to see the instruments in my car as I drove along as I could not see what the speed was I was doing. They are to me just extremely dark glasses you struggle to see through. I also did not find them very comfortable to wear and I would say the lenses’ shape is more to look special and trendy than to actually serve any other point such as comfort.
Don’t waste your money as they are the worst sun glasses I have ever owned and they are a con. If Americans believe all the hype in the American made Advert which tries to make it look as so you will look so macho in TAC glasses like an American Marine but I doubt the US marines would be wearing them into battle as they would be fighting blind. Go back to making movie projectors Bell and Howell as you suck at making sun glasses.


mike haffner April 29, 2018 at 1:37 pm

These glasses are the worst,do not buy them

What are the carcinogens included in this product?


Mike Harrington May 20, 2018 at 1:04 am

Crap is not a descriptive enough word to describe the frames on these glasses. I bought two pair, one I wore 5 times, then the frame broke near the bridge as I took them off (using two hands) the other one, the bow broke as I was closing them the FIRST time I took them Off. I did not heavy hand these. Buy the $10.00 glasses in the gas station.

Kerie June 4, 2018 at 12:35 am

You are so right, just crap.


Kerie June 4, 2018 at 12:29 am

I bought 2 pairs of Tac glasses, both of them broke within a couple of weeks. The vision quality is crap, quite frankly they are just totally useless.


Mark June 7, 2018 at 5:19 am

I am a retired Optometrist.
I don’t like how these glasses are advertised. The reason why the eagle appears is they have placed a flat Polaroid filter on the front surface of the laptop screen. The screen is also set very bright with a dull eagle picture in the background. So the light leaving the the screen is polarised in probably the horizontal orientation similar to light bouncing off water. So if you put any Polaroid sun glasses on the bright screen will become markedly duller and the eagle will then be able to be seen. There is also nothing special about the reflective coating on the front of these sun glasses. It’s mainly for show. So this product is a scam in the way it is portrayed as being superior to other sun glasses when in fact from the testimonials of those who have bought them they underperform for the price.
If you want sunglasses then try them on in a shop or a market. If it feels good to you then that is the correct pair for you so long as they meet the standards like UV and clarity but even the cheapest these days do that.
Also if your having trouble with glair then have your eyes checked. You may be slightly short sighted or any number of different conditions which will need attention.
Take care Mark. PS I will be sending you the bill !!!


rodan July 6, 2018 at 1:20 pm

broke the first time I went to put them on. cheap. junk. do not waste time or money. go to a bass pro shop pay the same price and get a decent pair of glasses.


Mick Rocks July 6, 2018 at 11:20 pm

I also brought a pear of Tac sunglasses thinking that I could use them as safety glasses for work. Shortly if they are good enough for military use then they would be fine with construction.. Right? Well apparently not thay don’t meet safety standards. Oh and one other warning started was that these glasses (Tac) should not be warn whilst DRIVING. Doh..! Oh is there not a semi trailer streaming past from out of the blinding glare on there TV ads and now you should not use them while DRIVING.. and now I know why. Because they are CRAP really CRAP I’m getting my money back well less postage costs to send them back hay! Rippoffs


Mik Rocks July 7, 2018 at 12:16 am

Do you want to know what there real business is? They take yours and every one else’s money first and then they invest that money over the 28 days it takes to send them out to you and the 30 days they give you to try them out, making millions of dollars on the interest and don’t care if you send them back as this is part of the on going cycle that maintains the pool of funds interested and will happily send your money back.
Now you know the real scam


Michele A Jackson July 9, 2018 at 10:23 am

The lens seems to work as they claim, but the quality of the product is poor. The frame is very flimsy. The soft plastic nose piece will not stay on, came off in the first 15 mins. I could have gone to the dollar store and gotten a better quality pair of sun glasses! I will not buy another product of theirs as of now. I do NOT recommend this product!!


Freeman McNeal July 10, 2018 at 10:37 pm

While, the glasses did make it easier and clearer to see both day and night. The glasses are so fragile that they broke within two weeks of me receiving them. I would loved to have been able to wear them longer. after they broke, I did not want to go through the hassle of trying to return them. I did not see a return policy. They are excellent glasses however, they need to be more durable. I am one who pay for and keep sunglasses for years. These were ones I expected to keep for years not weeks.


Tommy October 14, 2018 at 10:40 pm

Shit. Poor China made garbage. Bought it and 2 pairs broke within 2 months. The same handle same place.


albert freed November 17, 2018 at 1:02 am

No wonder these things are being advertised thru mail order sites. If you were able to try before you buy they would bet a big thumbs down.They are no better than what you can get in a petrol station shop for $5. I would say not even equal quality.A BIG RIP OFF!


Tony November 18, 2018 at 5:52 am

Absolute rubbish! They fell apart as I took them out of the box. Cheap crap that you would not buy if you could see them in a shop


Walter Krenisky December 9, 2018 at 1:51 am

I purchased these glasses and at first thought they were OK but nothing special. After a month the nose piece cracked in half and the framer broke. I understand there is a life time warranty but it is not worth the cost of sending them back so I just super glued them.

When I used them they were soothing on the eyes but they seemed to darken everything. I could not see the in car map screen without lifting the glasses because it was too dark.

The Night vision glasses did not remove the star image from the headlights as shown on TV they only seemed to make everything yellow

Those are my experiences. You get what you pay for.


Tanker December 14, 2018 at 2:14 am

Bought these glasses hopping to improve my night driving vision. Like the other people commented they are dark and couldn’t be used a night. Junk! I will try getting the charges to my card reversed.
Pure CRAP!


goldie January 19, 2019 at 6:52 pm

I was one of the idiots who bought the tac glasses so I could see my tablet screen outside….they are absolutely SHIT….did not do anything to help me see the screen !!!


Graham January 30, 2019 at 9:48 am

Well thanks everyone, you made my mind up


LARRY WOODING February 24, 2019 at 9:00 pm



Norma Wertman April 3, 2019 at 12:59 pm

I’m very disappointed in them. I wear prescription glasses and they do not fit over them. What a waste of money. I thought they would fit over my glasses.


bobby June 27, 2019 at 12:00 am

broke the first week


Gary Noland August 4, 2019 at 3:39 am

Chinese junk– i reckon, my snoecone lasted longer.


CURTIS PHILLIPS September 8, 2019 at 2:03 am

GARBAGE! Does not perform as advertised! A waste of money! Bought two pair and had several friends try them just to get objective opinions. GARBAGE! FALSE ADVERTISING!
