Whatever the need be it hiking, cycling, climbing, paddling, shooting Wiley X offers premium protection ( up to military-grade), durable frames and shatterproof high-performance lenses. Even ballistic protective eyewear if it is required that meets military standards for impact protection is available.
Wiley X climate-controlled eyewear has a patented removable soft foam gasket (Facial Cavity Seal) to reduce dust, pollen, wind and other airborne irritants, dehydration of the tear film and the very annoying fogging of lenses.
Wiley X in the US is the most well-known brand of eyewear when it comes to safety, with over 30 years of being the preferred eyewear supplier to the armed forces, police and other agencies. Over the last 15 years, the company has branched into the motorcycle, optical and fashion markets.
All Wiley X frames come with a lifetime warranty. The air-permeable foam padding fitted on their Climate Control Series models means a greater reduction on fogging up of lenses while the seal is on. Wiley X Eyewear is fitted with SHATTERPROOF Selenite Polycarbonate Lenses.
