I found this out of a Sportsman's Guide catalog and wondered how good it actually works.

No.

It emits IR light to "illuminate" the target.

Passive NV merely amplifies available light.

To someone wearing passive NOD's, another person using that thing would look like a big flashlight.

Ok for spotting critters or taking photos, but NOT tactical.
