Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SK Cool Down the Blinding Sun
Bought really attractive/expensive wood window blinds...but they did nothing to darken the bedroom. Decided to try the Gila window film and I'm thrilled with the product! Easy to install (use plenty of water) and left no air bubbles. Darkened the room to a comfortable level and noticed an additional benefit that the room is not as hot during the day (hopefully will lower my AC bills!).

Installation was a bit time consuming, however it was worth the effort. It doesn't do much for the glare, so the (45%) reduction is referring to the brightness and not the glare.
My bedroom window is facing the east and the Gila film creates a significant sunglass effect.
Again the pointed glare of the sun is still hard to deal with, with out the mechanical shade, but the brightness of the sun was is reduced considerably...

Second time I have bought this product and didn't work either time. Won't stick to the glass and nearly impossible to work with on any decent size window.

Thicker material can be a challenge to cut/trim. If it gets too warm it wants to pull.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by froggy What a difference
I would purchase the Gila Complete Window Film Application Kit, which I did and it comes out really good. We put in a doggie door on the screen door, the only problem was the sun in the late afternoon would heat the living room up, so I went to Home Depot knowing I would find something and I did so now I don't have to get up and down for a poochie who loves to run in and out and my living room stays at the temperature that I want it at.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yoda Good Product / Good results
Used this to dampen the glare on a light box. As a note, be sure to separate the film from the backing in an area free from dust or kittens The static will really attract the particles but this is no fault of the product. Also purchasing a larger squeegee will save some time if applying a lot of this film.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mamab perfect for privacy and glare
i bought this product for the front doors of the school building i work at. not only does it offer privacy from the outside in, it keeps the glare down and the sun doesn't heat up the lobby. it stays cooler in the warmer months!! The tint film is super easy to use. i did buy the kit that includes a small squeegie and a razor knife and the spray. i do NOT recommend that kit. You are better off using your own NEW razor blade and a squeegie for windows. Also a tip.....if your film is bigger than the window you are applying it to....i suggest cutting it larger than the size needed by maybe 3 inches all around. it will make handling the film easier as it is a bit weighty. once applied to the window....squeegie it in place and then trim with razor. do NOT cut it to size and apply. it leaves no room for error. i highly recommend this product!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaGirl Smoke color is very cloudy
I purchased the Smoke shade. It was fairly easy to apply and cut with a sharp blade but is extremely cloudy when you look through it. There is no clear outline on anything looking out the window. Trees and phone lines are blurry, people walking past are blurry. I would not recommend this product if you want to see clearly out the window.
