Flip-Up Tac Glasses are like ordinary Tac Glasses, of which the design was inspired by sunglasses worn by American soldiers, but the flip-up type can be worn over other eyewear. Therefore, if you already wear glasses for reading or nearsightedness, you'll be able to put these sunglasses on right over top. When you don't need the lenses to block glare, you can quickly flip them up and then flip them down again when you do need them.

Features

  • For Men and Women

    With these sunglasses, one size is meant to fit all adult men and women. Each pair has black frames, making them appear gender-neutral and age-neutral, so virtually anyone can wear them without feeling self-conscious.

  • Block Glare

    Like the original Tac Glasses, these flip-up sunglasses will block glare from the sun and artificial light. However, unlike some standard pairs of sunglasses, they'll be able to do this without making the visual picture you see through them darker overall.

  • Enhance Vision

    Due to light-filtering technology, these sunglasses are actually capable of enhancing your vision. This technology will enable you to see objects that wouldn't otherwise be visible through bright sun and will make the color of everything in your environment brighter and clearer. As a result, you'll be able to see potential obstacles in your environment more quickly than you would while wearing a standard pair of sunglasses. Furthermore, even if you don't normally wear reading glasses, you might notice that you can see small print more clearly with these sunglasses on.

  • For All Seasons

    Flip-Up Tac Glasses are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors, no matter what season you're currently in. You may find them as useful when you're participating in winter sports as they are while you're engaging in summer ones. There may not be any occasion on which you'd like to wear your sunglasses while inside a building, but they will certainly come in handy in your vehicle, especially on incredibly sunny days.

  • Durable

    These sunglasses have thick frames that will be unlikely to snap, along with Bell and Howell lenses that are known for their precision and quality. After you obtain your first pair, it may last you for years without incurring any damage at all, even if you wear the same pair of sunglasses almost every day.

Positive Points

  • Flip Up and Down Quickly

    When you're wearing your Flip-Up Tac Glasses over a pair of ordinary eyeglasses, and you no longer need the Tac Glasses, you'll be able to flip their lenses up in one or two seconds. Likewise, you'll be able to flip the lenses down again when you do need to use the sunglasses for any reason. You won't have to waste minutes fiddling with the lenses each time you want to make a change—in fact, you won't even need to take off these sunglasses while flipping the lenses up or down.

  • Extra Layer of Protection

    For those people who enjoy spending time outdoors, these sunglasses will provide an extra layer of protection against the elements. If you were to go outside with just your ordinary eyeglasses on, you could end up with branches poking your face or sand or snow in your eyes. Fortunately, your flip-up sunglasses will help protect your eyes from these calamities and other similar ones, so you can do almost anything outside without putting them at risk.

  • Stylish Look

    Some flip-up sunglasses don't look stylish, which may make young people feel as if they're something only a senior should wear, but that's not the case with these flip-up sunglasses. Instead, they have an athletic, contemporary look that will satisfy the majority of younger and older adults alike.

Negative Points

  • May Not Fit Kids

    It's unfortunate that these sunglasses don't come in a children's size since the adult size may be too large for some (or even most) children. A lot of children do wear ordinary eyeglasses these days and may want to wear sunglasses, too. Yet, unless a child's head is large enough to fit into an adult-sized pair of sunglasses, they'll have to explore other options besides the Flip-Up Tac Glasses.

  • No Carrying Case or Strap

    Many pairs of sunglasses come with a carrying case or at least a strap that can be attached to each pair in order to help prevent them from falling off in the water. Flip-Up Tac Glasses are touted as a pair of sunglasses that can be worn in various places outdoors, around water, but they come with no such strap. No carrying case is included, either, so if you want these things, you'll have to obtain them on their own. Depending on where you look, it could be difficult to find a case that'll fit these sunglasses well.

Save Money

You could spend a couple of hundred dollars or more on a prescription pair of sunglasses if you need to wear prescription glasses at all times, but that's not absolutely necessary. If you get a pair of Flip-Up Tac Glasses that you can put on over an existing pair of eyeglasses, you won't need to dig into your savings to buy those prescription sunglasses after all. These flip-up sunglasses will fit over virtually any pair of eyeglasses, so even if you get a new pair of those at any point, you won't have to get a new pair of Tac Glasses.

Save Time

Switching between sunglasses and ordinary eyeglasses while you're doing outdoor activities or driving can be time-consuming, especially if the sun's brightness level keeps changing and you have to make a lot of eyewear changes. These eyewear changes won't be necessary, however, once you've got a pair of Tac Glasses that'll flip up and flip down. That means you'll be able to spend the time you would have spent switching glasses by having more fun or getting to a particular destination more quickly.

Critical Advice

Although no cleaning cloth or solution is included with these sunglasses, you should still be cleaning them on a regular basis, such as every few days or once a week. It's best to clean them with water and a soft cloth that'll be gentle on the lenses and remember to wipe any dust or dirt off of both sides of each lens. Do not use any sort of chemical to clean them without consulting your instruction manual or contacting the manufacturing company.

Warnings

  • Not Night Vision Glasses

    Flip-Up Tac Glasses are designed for daytime use only. While you may be able to wear them at night without a problem, they may not work as effectively when it comes to blocking glare or enhancing vision. If you want to block the glare from headlights and streetlights and enhance your vision at night, you should get a pair of glasses designed specifically for night use.

Wise Advice

Do not buy Flip-Up Tac Glasses online before searching Amazon.
- Alternatives or the same items are always available and sometimes at lower prices.

Cheaply Made

I bought these for my husband to use when driving. He loved them and they worked well, but after a handful of uses, both clips broke, leaving them useless. Would not recommend it.

Tac Glasses

Beware, potential buyers. I placed my order on 6/9/20, shipping policy promises delivery within 30 days. I haven't received mine after 7 weeks, so I went to their website, which told me they we're out of stock. Doesn't a reputable company let you know they are out of stock and that delivery will be delayed? I spent 17 minutes on hold for customer service, and then got cut off. Either a poorly run company or a ripoff. If I don't get an answer soon, I will have to dispute the charges with my card company.

NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Glasses were broken during the first week. I called customer support 4-5 times with no answer, only listening to a recording. I held for one hour on one call and have spent over two hours on hold with no customer support. There is no email or chat link available, only a phone number with no person available. Their term customer support is an oxymoron.

These $19.99 glasses are just that. Cheap, price, and quality with no customer support.

I ordered my glassae in July, I haven't seen them as yet. Why are they advertising a product that they don't even have them in stock?

Best Ever for Truck Drivers!

I'm not one to buy stuff off of a TV ad, but as a person wearing glasses, I thought I'd try these glasses. I didn't like the clip-on ones because they scratched my $600 prescription glasses. These are awesome! I'm a truck driver and these Flip-Up Tac Glasses are great for driving, then walking into the office. They keep out more glare than the flip-down visor that I have in my truck. Best ever. Yes, I bought two: Now I'm showing them to my co-workers and friends. Love this product!

I Will Wear These

Not sure about others, I ordered two pair. They come in cases. I will never buy another brand again. I am totally impressed with mine. Yes, my prescription glasses stick out the bottom a little, but I will get smaller frames next go around on vision check. I am glad I ordered them.

Racist Commerical

There is not one black person in any of these commercials and showing the American Flag stating home of the brave. Well, black people died and fought for this country and they need to take your Tac Glasses off the market because your company is racist.

Vern, get over yourself! This is not a political platform! Did you grow up with a nonblack person in your house? Then you're a racist. See how ridiculous that sounds! I'm a proud American! America is comprised of different races, all with equal rights/opportunities, whether you admit it or not! Y'all need to quit trying to divide America and work on uniting America!

Am ex Vietnam era vet. 6 brothers, 2 Puerto Ricans, me a greek/Italian. The original band of true my family brothers. Get over that TV political crapMy Deceased mom did after she came here in 1937, assed in 87. In America, we only have each other. In battle, the color disappears. Only our flag and the guy next to you keeps you going. Do not waste your energy on hate or dislike. Live as I have lived and continue to live. Look into each person's head and heart. I have many acquaintances. Your true friends are your family. Be the best you can be. When you do good it makes you stronger. Clean a disabled persons yard. Help people trying to do right in distress. No matter what anyone tells you, there will always be bad people. Judge everyone, one on one. Never judge a race, creed or color. Never judge a book by its cover. EX combat Marinefind something you like to do, get your education now or later find a trade. Find something good. When you help people it makes you strong. I went to the military and met my true childhood family. We learned from each other. And grew up together. Walk-in any cemetery, take away the monuments. We are all the same in every way. Oh, what happened to my growing up childhood friends? You can read about a lot of them in the 50-60-70-1980 east coast newspapers. Stay clean or get clean. If you Marry, marry your best friend. Take care. One more thing? I wish someone with clout would take their money and see that all Americans, of all races, creeds, colors, religions who came to this land or were originally here are dug up and reburied properly and made as historic sites. Including the American Indian. A Marine whose mom was called a black dego. It pays in every way to lose your anger. What I mentioned includes many American Indians who were shit on Remember, not many out there like us. We only have one another. Take care. Angelo.

Vern,
Stop being a pathetic troll, the company can use whoever they want in advertising. If you want black people in their commercial then offer to pay for it. It seems to me that you are more of a racist and want to divide people more than anything. It wouldn’t surprise me if you are a fat 20 something white kid who lives with mommy and daddy that wants to be antifa. You are such a sad little boy.

If You're Looking for Quality It's not Here

Junk. Just cheap plastic Junk, plus unless your personal glasses are super small this cheap Junk won't fit over them. And it does take 3 weeks for delivery, why? Can only think they don't want you to call your credit card company and tell them you got ripped off and want your money back. I wish I would have found a review like this. Save your money.
