The Tac Visor Review:
Being ranked at no.1 in Automotive Sun Protection Visors, the product offers a variety of features. The lightweight product weighs nearly 4 ounces despite being 12*7*2 inches in size. The company designed the product by being inspired by the design of the face shield used by air force pilots.
The product offered by Bell + Howell is budget-friendly costing you nearly $20. This small light filtering window aims to enhance color recognition while preventing glare.
“The cheap product offers a variety of functions which will enhance any human being visions to an eagle’s vision providing him/her protection against the harmful sun’s radiation like UV rays. Even, if you want to drive on any bright or sunny or snowy day, the best part of the mirror is it will reflect backlight.” He says.
The product has two different panels offering two different modes i.e. one for the day and the other one are for the night. If you think, you won’t require the mirror at present you can simply flip it up.
The daytime panel works similarly to a pair of polarized sunglasses. It would work best for the people who wear prescription glasses all the time but do not have any prescription sunglasses.
Although, our experts find the night panel a bit less impressive. “A yellow tint glass will not make much difference in the vision”. Although, the yellow tinted night glasses provide a slighted improvement and tries to discriminate colors in nighttime glare but isn’t much effective.
The product comes with a simple clip attachment that can be applied to any type of vehicle. The manufacturing of the product with the developed technology offers heat resistance
and tries to eliminate the heat-induced discoloration.
The shatter-proof tendency of the Tac Visor enhances the durability of the product, making it safe for human use. It further enhances the reliability of the product.
