Wiley X's Spheric lens technology follows the curvature of the eye for optical clarity and a full, undistorted field of vision. Each lens is coated with T-Shell, a scratch-resistant hard coat for serious protection, as well as the company's Foil anti-fog coating. These are just some of the high-tech features and rugged construction that have made Wiley X a leading provider of protective eyewear system for the FBI, DEA, Army Rangers, Navy SEALs and other elite Special Forces Units. Award judges considered nearly 200 product entries from 145 companies, and Wiley-X truly proved itself as being a cut above the rest.
Livermore, Ca. (September 22, 2006) - The Wiley X Tactical Assault Glove (TAG-1) has been selected as the protective glove for the U.S. Marine Corps Breacher kit. Wiley X has been supplying the United States finest fighting forces with eyewear and accessories for over 20 years. They have worked closely with military and federal law enforcement agencies, designing ballistic goggles, spectacles, as well as protective gloves for all types of operations conducted. WileyX has also devoted an entire department to specialize in the development and creation of new and innovative designs based on feedback from war fighters and officers in the field. HVP - High Velocity Protection, is the theory behind all Wiley X designs. Wiley X prides itself on designing protection that can be worn for multiple applications whether its general safety or close quarters combat.
After years of protecting the eyes of America's military, Wiley X Eyewear has successfully crossed over to protecting the eyes of America's civilians as well. Wiley X's combat-proven eyewear, which made the company a leading provider of tactical eye protection for the FBI, DEA, Army Rangers, Navy SEALs and other elite Special Forces Units, is a perfect crossover to the demanding and dangerous race environment — protecting the eyes of many top racing teams in NASCAR, IndyCar and NHRA. In its third year as an associate sponsor of the Ginn Racing owned U.S. Army Chevrolet, this is the second time Wiley X has taken the lead in sponsoring the Army's sister car driven by racing veteran and fan favorite Sterling Marlin.
Wiley X Eyewear initially made a name for itself in answering the call for critical tactical eye protection for those serving in uniform around the globe. In the ensuing 20 years, the company has gone even further forward and expanded their rugged and attractive designs into racing, motorcycling, fishing, boating and bicycling markets. That is why, in April 2007, Wiley X was excited to announce another perfect fit for their high performance eyewear by teaming with premier drivers Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle and the Roush Racing team. This collaboration with the exhilarating world of NASCAR will propel Wiley X to new heights in safety and appeal by supplying high performance sunglasses to all of Roush Racing drivers, mechanics and crews in all three NASCAR series — Nextel Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck.
Without fail, Wiley X still makes protective eyewear, supplying glasses to the U.S. Military in the Middle East. Not only is a soldier's body armor and your helmet a piece of protective gear to wear, but also the Wiley-X protective goggles. If you don't wear protective eyewear out on the field, you're putting yourself and others at risk. It already saved many eyes from shrapnel, and will save more in the future.
In keeping with Wiley X Eyewear's long tradition of providing the ultimate in protective tactical eyewear for military and law enforcement applications, the company is commemorating its most recent NASCAR sponsorship by donating 500 pairs of their revolutionary High Velocity Protection (HVP) tactical goggles along with a check for $5,000 to the U.S.O. to support the men and women serving our country overseas. Along with being a major supplier to the U.S. Armed Forces and law enforcement agencies, Wiley X produces innovative and sophisticated sunglasses for both casual and active wear as well as specialty eyewear for the motorcycle, mountain/street bike, hunting, boating and fishing markets.
