Wiley X Eyewear has been developing the kind of rugged, battlefield proven eyewear, gloves and tactical accessories that have made it standard issue for top military and law enforcement personnel worldwide.
With Veteran’s Day approaching, the attention of the world turns to honoring the valor and sacrifices made by those who protect our freedom today and all through our country’s proud heritage. And, Wiley X has been proud of its own 20+ year legacy, but for the entire team of veteran owned and operated Wiley X, applauding those who make our way of life possible is part of the day-to-day business model.
Wiley X is the only premium sunglass manufacturer whose entire line is certified to exceed ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity and high mass impact standards. The experts at the company know what the people who wear their products face in the field — environments so dangerous, mercurial and punishing that taking chances with anything other than real protection can mean life or death. In fact, Wiley X tests each model of its eyewear vigorously, and from different angles, to withstand the impact of a .25” diameter steel ball fired at 150fps, and the weight of a 1.1lb. pointed projectile dropped from a height of 50” before entrusting to the faces of those who protect the U.S.
ISO 9001:2008-certified Wiley X knows that those serving in the armed forces are held to a higher standard, and feels that its eyewear needs to set the benchmark for safety and performance, as well. Specific Wiley X products are certified to the military’s rigid Ballistic VO impact standards, and have even received coveted National Stock Numbers (NSN) numbers, which identify standardized supplies that are recognized by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and all NATO countries. Wiley X also provides exceptionally rugged tactical gloves that are trusted by the same members of the Special Forces, the USMC, and elite members of the L/E community to name a few — creating these well engineered protective gloves and accessories to help them achieve victory in the field day in and day out.
The company recently launched a new Wiley X Black Ops™ Collection — a line expressly developed for upper echelon tactical operatives — with their signature High Velocity Protection™ (HVP™) and shatterproof Selenite™ Polycarbonate lenses which offer 100% UVA and UVB protection.
So on November 11th, when you join the rest of the country to applaud those who have fought the good fight and faced danger as part of their day-to-day duties now and throughout history, remember that these heroes put their lives on the line for all of us and that freedom comes at a price.
