Founded on supplying military forces and law enforcement personnel with top-of-the-line ballistic eyewear, Wiley X continues to hold safety as our priority, adopting this approach for our entire line and building eyewear with the highest levels of protection available.
All Wiley X ANSI-rated frames and lenses must withstand the impact of a .25” diameter steel ball. For spectacles the projectile must be traveling 150fps and for a goggle 250fps.
Several Wiley X eyewear models are tested to V0 ballistics which consists of a spectacle frame and lens being impacted with a .15 caliber projectile traveling 640-725fps depending on Mil-Standard and model, or a goggle frame and lens with a .22 caliber projectile traveling 550-590fps depending on Mil-Standard and model. This test is meant to simulate shrapnel that may be encountered on the battlefield.
Shatterproof lens protection standard in every style we offer.
Wiley X ANSI-rated frames and lenses must withstand the impact of a 1.1lb. projectile dropped from a height of 50” to ensure your eyes are protected from unexpected blunt force impacts.
Shatterproof lenses and frames provide protection from falling objects.
