Wiley X, the globally renowned protective eyewear manufacturer, has announced two new sunwear models for release in the coming year. Known for providing protective eyeglasses to military units and law enforcement personnel all around the world, including the US Navy, US Army and D.E.A., their two new styles are, like all Wiley X sunwear products, certified as protective eyewear with both ANSI Z87.1-2010 and EN.166 certifications.
The two new eyeglass style releases are called the WX Rebel and WX Valor and are designed specifically for hunters, shooters and avid outdoorsmen. These high-performance models are stylish, yet functional, and as such they are being made available with Realtree Xtra camouflage frames which serve to match the rest of the Realtree Xtra camo apparel and accessories line. The consistency of style makes the WX Rebel and WX Valor models a logical choice for those outdoor enthusiasts who are already familiar with Realtree’s quality products.
The WX Rebel model pairs the Realtree Xtra design with stylish, glare-cutting polarized smoke green lenses designed for use near water, in snow, and in other high-glare environments. Coupled with Wiley X’s lightweight Active Series frames and featuring a snug-fit soft rubber nose, this model is made to function despite strenuous activity and hot, sweaty conditions. Though it is comfortable for persons with smaller head sizes, the frame is designed specifically for those with medium to large sized heads.
The WX Valor model utilizes an ultra-lightweight half-frame design that fits heads of all sizes, small to large.
Though it comes standard with versatile smoke grey lenses to allow for all-day wear, the WX Valor model is a part of the Wiley X Changeable series: its lenses can be quickly and easily exchanged as the need to do so arises. Wiley X offeres an array of different lens types and tints for this series which can be used with the WX Valor model.
The functionality of the WX Rebel and WX Valor models does not stop at the aesthetic qualities of the lens and frames, but extends into their very structural design. Both models meet the highly stringent US certifications, the ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact safety standards, as well as the European EN.166 standards for what the company describes as “true OSHA-grade vision protection.” Additionally, the WX Valor model goes a step further by exceeding the high bar set by United States Military’s MIL-PRF-32432(GL) ballistic impact standards.
Both of these Realtree Xtra camo shades are also prescription lens ready, making them fantastic choices for hunters, outdoorsmen and shooters with vision problems who still want to experience the benefits of high quality eyewear without sacrificing their sight. For their prescription lenses, Wiley X uses only the highest of quality lens manufacturers which fully comply with all European safety standards.
The combination of stylish frames and lenses, high-quality protection that meets or exceeds standards not normally used in the hunting, fishing or outdoor industry (as well as exceeding the US Military’s ballistic tests for impact which are some of the most stringent in the world), as well as the designs’ snug fit meant for vigorous activity in any outdoor conditions, makes Wiley X’s WX Rebel and WX Valor models a perfect choice for any outdoorsmen. When engaged in active, strenuous, and sometimes dangerous outdoor activities there can be no compromise with safety, but with these two new models by Wiley X there is no need to sacrifice style to get the protection that you need.
