About Jumbo View Visor
Using a central clip with two see-through visors on each side, the Jumbo View Visor promises to protect your eyes and help you see the road clearly, whether in the rain, fog, sleet, snow, harsh sun, or glaring headlights.
To accomplish this, we’re told Jumbo View Visor’s dark tinted panel can help diffuse the sun’s rays and reduce the glare of headlights, while the orange tinted panel can help add some clarity to your surroundings.
Compared to the competition, we’re told the Jumbo View Visor features 25% more coverage. We’re even told its panels feature UV protection!
According to the company, all you have to do is attach Jumbo View to any visor, and its airplane-derived design will provide a “crisp and clear” view of the road and help you “avoid any accidents and danger.”
If the Jumbo View Visor commercial is to be believed, then it certainly seems like it could transform your driving experience—especially if you’re susceptible to things like night blindness or other weather-related vision problems.
But once you have it in your car, can you expect the Jumbo View Visor to deliver on its promises? Are there other products just like it? Let’s start answering your questions by looking what causes vision problems in the first place.
What Causes Difficulty Seeing When Driving?
Obviously, there can be hundreds (perhaps thousands) of different causes of difficulty seeing when driving.
In fact, even if you’re only referencing a single condition, such as night blindness (formally known as nyctalopia), there can be multiple causes, such as nearsightedness, glaucoma, cataracts, vitamin A deficiency, and more.
For hazy conditions (even in full daylight), such as fog and snow, poor contrast sensitivity can also lead to problems driving, which can also be caused by glaucoma and cataracts, as well as diabetes.
What’s the point? Vision problems are typically the result of some physical change in the anatomy of the eyes, caused by genetics, age, disease, and much more.
And while prescription lenses can help make up for some of these physical changes, based on customer feedback, non-prescription colored panels like Jumbo View Visor might not do more than reduce glare and increase contrast.
We’ll come back around to this thought in the final section. For now, let’s talk about some of Jumbo View Visor’s competition.
Are There Other Products Like Jumbo View Visor?
A quick online search for “tinted car visor” or “clip-on sun visor” will reveal many other choices that are functionally similar to Jumbo View Visor, including several we’ve reviewed here at HighYa, like HD Vision Visor and Ray Away Visor.
You’ll also find glasses that use the same basic principle as Jumbo View, such as HD Night Vision Wraparounds and HD Vision Ultras. You’ll even find a removable tint that attaches directly to your windshield and can accomplish much of the same!
From a price perspective, you’ll find that much of the competition falls somewhere between $15 and $20, plus S&H. Comparatively, what will you pay for the Jumbo View Visor?
How Much Does the Jumbo View Visor Cost?
One Jumbo View Visor is priced at $19.99 plus free S&H. During checkout, you’ll be able to purchase a second visor for an additional $9.99 fee.
Regardless of how many you order, all Jumbo View purchases come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H.
This means that if you buy the BOGO offer and process a return, you’ll immediately lose $10 is S&H, plus whatever it will cost to ship the visors back to the manufacturer.
To request a refund, you’ll need to call BulbHead (a division of ASOTV giant Telebrands) customer service at 855-668-1655. What else do we know about the manufacturer?
Are There Any Reviews for the Jumbo View Visor?
We didn’t come across any online customer reviews for Jumbo View at the time of our research. Why? We typically investigate ASOTV products as soon as they’re released.
However, the nearly identical HD Vision Visor mentioned in the last section had 20 reader reviews and an average rating of 1.9 stars on HighYa.
Here, most complaints seemed to reference that they didn’t work as expected, that they don’t hang down low enough (which may be especially important for shorter individuals), and that they don’t fit all visors.
From a company perspective, Telebrands is the largest company in the ASOTV industry, who’s been around for 3+ decades and has produced recent hits like Light Angel, Red Copper Pan, Atomic Beam USA, and many more.
Looking at reader reviews for these products, they also tend to come with 2-star or lower average ratings, based on complaints of lower quality than expected, less-than-stellar performance, and unhelpful customer service.
Regardless, the Jumbo View Visor is a new product, so we’ll just have to wait and see what customers say. In the meantime, you can use this information to provide you with a high-level overview of the situation.
Does Jumbo View Visor’s Future Look Bright?
Again, we didn’t purchase the Jumbo View Visor or test one firsthand. And even if we did, it’s ultimately up to you how to spend your money.
Either way, this doesn’t mean that we can’t use publically available online feedback to make a more informed decision about Jumbo View Visor.
From this perspective, based on HighYa reader feedback for virtually identical products, it seems like you might get more value for your money by speaking with your doctor about any vision problems you might be experiencing, versus placing an order for the Jumbo View Visor.
This way, while it might cost you more, they may be able to prescribe specialized lenses that address the underlying causes of your night vision problems (for example) for long term relief.
