Wiley X, Inc. is a family owned business based out of Livermore, CA. The company was founded by Myles Freeman Sr. in 1987. Freeman, a military veteran himself, was determined to create high-quality products to protect servicemen in the field. Out of this passion, Wiley X safety glasses grew an outstanding reputation that reached well beyond active military awareness. Freeman’s sons, Dan and Myles Jr., recognized the vast potential to introduce these sturdy designs to new markets when outdoor sports enthusiasts reached out to the family requesting that they apply Wiley X’s specialized impact resistance features to civilian eyewear designs. Dan and Myles Jr. forged the way to translate their expertise as a world leader in military and law enforcement eyewear to an expansive series of Wiley X sports glasses.
The company’s top grade technologies previously used in Wiley X ballistic sunglasses offered obvious applications for a new line of recreational Wiley X shooting glasses but there was a distinct need for other outdoor sports sunglasses with similar attributes as well. As Wiley X widened its outdoor sport accessories lines, it became heralded as the maker of some of the best sunglasses for sports across the board. After celebrating its 30th anniversary and opening a second office in Denmark, Wiley X enhances all of your favorite activities...
Avid motorcycle riders need durable protection at all times. Whether to shield the driver’s eyes from insects, debris, leaves or other materials kicked up from the road, or from any potential injuries in the event of an unfortunate accident, Wiley X riding glasses feature patented removable facial cavity (™) seals for maximum protection. Bicyclists and off-road vehicle drivers enjoy these protections too.
For the casual, weekend fisherman or the world-traveling, fly rod devotee, Wiley X’s polarized sunglasses cut through the glare and guard your eyes against unexpected splashes. Clever lines along the temple eliminate blinding peripheral light as the sun shifts throughout the day. Just how essential are fishing sunglasses to a day on the water? Many guides, especially on wading trips, will require you wear or carry polarized sunglasses on a trip to help you better see below the surface. Sunglasses for fishing also help protect against errant hooks or other dangers to the eyes.

Not having to juggle one more item in your pack is always a plus and Wiley X’s signature durability keeps them intact even when it is time to stash them with the rest of your gear.
