ABOUT WILEY X:
Veteran founded in 1987, Wiley X has been producing the world’s most protective and stylish eyewear for over 30 years. Myles Freeman Sr., a military veteran, started Wiley X to protect the eyes of those who protected America. His sons Dan and Myles Jr. are quick to credit their success to passionate, committed employees and highly supportive retail partners. While Wiley X remains a major supplier of eyewear and gloves to military forces around the world, it has since become a burgeoning outdoor lifestyle brand. Above all Dan and Myles Jr. agree their success is due to the fact they have remained true to their father’s original vision to make the most protective and stylish eyewear available, anywhere. Every adult sunglass style made by Wiley X meets ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety Standards, for protection that goes far beyond the harmful rays of the sun. Several styles also meet U.S. military MIL-PRF-32432 (GL) standards for ballistic eye protection, a key reason why Wiley X has been a leading provider of vision protection equipment to the U.S. military and law enforcement for more than 30 years.
