PROTECTION IN THE FIELD For more than two decades Wiley X is proud to be a family and U.S. Veteran owned and operated company. As a global leader in the research and development of protective eyewear and gloves to military and law enforcement personnel Wiley X’s high performance products have become standard issue with the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. 2

From elite military units to local hunters and shooters, Wiley X sets the benchmark for safety and utility. We believe continual improvement isn’t just a goal but a requirement. The entire line of Wiley X, the next pair you get, will be better than the last pair you had.

When it comes to hunting and shooting no amount of protection is too much. As an ISO 9001:2008 business we meet a higher standard than competitors’ “marketing claims.” Per required specifications and as outlined by ISO 9001:2008 and ANSI Z87.1 standards we continue to meet the highest Ballistic Impact Standards. Wiley X products are put through rigorous testing in order to be EN.166 rated and full ANSI Z87.1 rated. Wiley X is the only premium performance manufacturer of hunting and shooting eyewear whose entire line is ANSI and EN.166 certified. All Wiley X models in this catalog also meet or exceed MIL-PRF-31013 and MIL-DTL-43511D VO Ballistic Impact Standards for spectacles respectively. MIL-PRF-31013 requires a spectacle to withstand the impact of a .15 caliber (3,8 mm) fragment fired at 640-660 fps, (195-201 m/s). 3


As a shooting instructor I have preached to everyone that a pair of normal sunglasses are not good enough to go shooting with - they do what they say on the box - keep the Sun, out not the lead! I have travelled the world going to the very best hunts. I have shot over a hundred thousand shots in a year. Last year I have been shot twice, once in the hand and once on the side of my nose. The eyewear is more important than the ear defenders as I can still shoot when I’m deaf! Wiley X eyewear is the best I have seen for both safety and design.

THE SECRET BEHIND You, as a hunter, rely on many different factors when hunting. Factors like the weather, weapon type, choice of ammunition, distance, hide, camouflage and gundogs – just to mention a few. But most importantly – you rely on each other and your ability as a hunter to act and react in matters of seconds - being in control of the situation and deciding if it is safe to pull the trigger. As safety is the most important factor of them all, it is important to choose the best eyewear on the market. When you are in a hunting or shooting situation where you can expect; ricocheting pellets, sharp pieces of clay pigeons, flicking branches in the woods or pointy reeds – you can ALWAYS rely on the fact that all eyewear in this catalog meet or exceed the hardest tests in the World. To illustrate the above – the picture below is showing a Saber Advanced lens which has been shot from 10 meters distance only – using a 12 ga. shotgun, using half a choke and shooting with steel shot in size 7. As the picture shows – the lens was hit by multiple pellets, no cracks or penetration on the back side of the lens, leaving the eyes intact and protected.

This is your guarantee – this is your protection.

HOW CAN A LENS THIS THIN BE SO STRONG? All Wiley X lenses are made out of SeleniteTM (polycarbonate) and then heating the lens in an oven – you get an almost unbreakable quality, ready to absorb everything Mother Nature throws at you and protecting your eyes.

100% CLEAR FIELD OF VIEW In worst case, it can be fatal not having 100% clear field of view. Non-certified safety eyewear often tends to blur all around the lenses leaving only the center of the lens with 100% clear field of view. All Wiley X lenses are produced using a special production technique, which allows the lens to have different thickness from the middle of the lens and out – leaving you with 100% optical clarity – a Wiley X specialty.

“

I have worn prescription glasses since I was 12 years of age. Being a professional hunter, (member of P.H.A.S.A.) and also a professional Pike Fishing Guide (member of Reaction Strike Pro Team) I need perfect vision as it’s one of my most important senses. Without perfect vision I could not determine the distance of a stalked deer or see the fish moving in the water. For this I must use my instinct together with my sight and experience. Having to wear prescription glasses 24/7 I need the best. Having used Wiley X for the past few years I have determined that they offer the best protection on the market together with optimized vision - protecting my eyes from sun rise to sun set.

CHANGEABLES Things can go from bad to worse in an instant. Lightweight and versatile changeable eyewear is made to adapt, as quickly as you, to all light conditions and variable environments. Exceeding ANSI Z87.1 and GL-PD 10-12 safety standards and certified to the EN.166 European safety norms. Wiley X leaves nothing to chance. 12

“

I have chosen to wear Wiley X glasses as they have a great design, perfect fit and a magnificent view all across the lens. But most importantly I wear them because it is vital to have a pair of safety eyewear in high end quality, which I can rely on if I should be hit by a stray pellet either on the shooting range or when hunting.

WILEY X INSERTS Why choose a hunting/shooting eyewear model with prescription (RX) insert instead of having the prescription in the outer lens? If you need prescription lens – choosing a Wiley X model with an insert you will have a lot of advantages, compared with prescription eyewear, where the prescription is built directly into the lens.

• • • • •

Easy and cheaper to replace an outer lens which has no prescription. 5 different front color lens options – allowing you to adjust to any given light condition. Everyone can use the eyewear without the insert. Still certified as safety eyewear. Inserts match different models (see below).

My Wiley X shooting glasses probably saved my eyes I was invited to a small game hunt nearby the German city Gräpel. I was excited about the hunt, because the area usually offers plenty of game. The weather was against us - a thick fog hanging over the area. Due to the weather the safety on the parole had been increased, so low shooting was banned – even so it almost ended fatally for me. I was placed on a bridge over a channel with a railing as my only cover. After a slow start the drive turned in our favour. The fog was so thick that I could see neither hunters nor beaters, and a deer passed close by me without even noticing me. Suddenly a bunch of pheasants took off and the shots fell close, I could feel how pellets hit my jacket, my face and my Wiley X shooting glasses. Luckily for me I had acquired my shooting glasses earlier in the autumn. I don’t know if the glasses saved my eyes, but luckily I don’t have to think about that now. To me they saved my eyes, and I will NEVER go hunting or clay shooting without them again.

CROSS EYE DOMINATION When shouldering the gun to your right shoulder and aiming with your left eye as your master eye, this is cross eye domination. This is the same story if you shoulder the gun to your left shoulder and are aiming using your right eye as your master eye. When doing so the line of the gun and the line of sight are not in line (see the illustration). Since you are not looking straight down the barrel, you will often miss your target. This problem has often been solved either by closing the dominant eye, using a piece of cardboard covering the dominant eye or even using a pair of glasses blinding the dominant eye with tape or a marker. These solutions have serious disadvantages: • You will not be able to evaluate distances with only one eye • No eye protection • Not 100% field of view Cross eye domination can in most cases be “cured” by using Wiley X protective eyewear. Wiley X ANSI, EN.166 and ballistic rated lenses provide a true spatial relationship of objects in the field of view. By mounting a smoke grey colored lens in front of the dominant eye and a light rust colored lens (contrast enhancement color) in front of the other eye, the domination will in most cases change to the other eye and thereby solve the cross eye problem. This provides the following advantages: • No cross eye domination problem • 100% eye protection • 100% distance evaluation • 100% field of view • RX ready (prescription) The human brain can’t adopt the two different colors and therefore the two colors (smoke grey and light rust) will become one.

“My son has a cross eye dominance problem and when shooting he would normally have to shoot with one eye closed. By changing the lens in the shooting glasses to one black, one orange, it has shifted the master eye to the good side, looking down the barrel and he is now able to shoot with both eyes open allowing him to get better results. Wearing the adapted glasses, I set up a clay pigeon trap with the clay coming towards us. I thought that if I put skeet choke in, it would give him a bit of confidence. Once I had him shooting the clay, time after time, I screwed in a full choke and it didn’t seem to make any difference, he was still hitting every time. I then turned the trap round with the clay going away from us, it meant the target was 10 cm wide and 2,5 cm thick. Still shooting full choke. We stood beside the trap and stepped back 5 meters every 5 shots. We ended up 35 meters away from the trap, before he missed one. I must say, it was fantastic to see the smile on his face, when he was hitting every clay, when shooting with both eyes open. Now any client that comes to me for a shooting lesson with a cross eye dominance issue, I am using this technique with the glasses and getting great results.”

I was posted at the end of a pheasant drive. In the distance I could see the dog handlers starting the drive. The drive was long, and to block the wind I tucked my neck in my jersey, put on my cap and my hood. The only thing left open in my face was my eyes, but they were covered by a pair of Wiley X shooting glasses. The drive was slowly approaching. Several pheasants were shot in the drive. When the dog handlers were within 80-100 meters of me, a pheasant took off and the sound of gunfire broke the silence. The shooter had not seen that I was on a post in front of him, and he shot directly towards me. The hail cracked against the tree behind me and at my face. The shocked shooter ran to me. Luckily I could inform him that in spite of the tremendous shock I got, when the hail cracked against my glasses, I was alright. Of course the experience was no fun for neither of us. I am sure that if I had not been wearing protective shooting glasses, my eyes would probably have taken permanent damage. As a final closure of the day the organizer of the hunt announced that from that day on, shooting glasses would always be required in the hunts to come.

My appeal to all is – wear shooting glasses – they can save your sight…

I have chosen to use and wear Wiley X eyewear – due to the high level of protection all Wiley X eyewear holds. They are fantastic shooting eyewear – and the level of protection is much higher than competing eyewear on the market. In combination with the intelligent changeable lens technology and the different lens color choices – Wiley X is no less than perfect for me, when I go hunting, clay shooting or when I fire the fireworks at New Year’s Eve..
