Wiley X was born 30 years ago to meet the vision protection needs of U.S. soldiers, law enforcement and others who put their lives — and their eyes — on the line every day. Founded by a Veteran, Wiley X has always had the health and goodwill of our brave servicemen and women at heart. The experts at Wiley X developed advanced frame materials and shatterproof Selenite™ polycarbonate lenses designed to protect the precious gift of sight in dangerous situations and extreme conditions. Wiley X sunglasses are rigorously tested to ensure that they meet the highest safety standards, including ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact safety ratings, EN.166 Impact Standards, and for selected models, the latest updated MIL-PRF-32432 (GL) Standard for ballistic eye protection. Wiley X is the only premium performance eyewear brand with OSHA-grade ANSI-Z87.1 & EN.166 protection (or more) in every pair of glasses it produces. Almost every Wiley X style is also prescription-lens-ready, ensuring that if prescription lenses are required it is possible to enjoy the same confidence, clear vision and comfort.
Over the years, Wiley X has pioneered numerous innovations, including its Climate Control™ Series glasses with a patented, removable soft foam Facial Cavity™ Seal that blocks out wind, dust and reflected light for superior comfort and enhanced vision. Other key developments include Wiley X’s innovative Changeable Series glasses, providing state-of-the-art protection while allowing wearers to quickly switch lenses to suit changing light conditions. In addition, Wiley X's glove line offers the ultimate in hand protection while allowing maximum function and dexterity.
Wiley X’s constantly growing product line includes models for the workplace, specialized styles for hunting, boating, fishing, tactical and fashionable, functional sunglasses for every outdoor activity and situation – all people who need to rely on the company’s proven protection under extreme conditions.
