Wiley X Slay High Velocity Protection you've come to expect from Wiley X: shatterproof lenses and nearly indestructible frames that exceed ANSI Z87.1-2010 standards. High velocity protection, sleek style.
Whether your in the military, law enforcement, construction, or a sports enthusiast you want sunglasses for two reasons: to look cool and to protect your eyes from whatever the day throws at you. With Wiley X Slay Sunglasses you get high velocity protection and a sleek style combined in a pair of sunglasses that conform to your head like they were made for it.
Each of these sunglasses offers virtually indestructible frames and shatterproof high velocity protection lenses that exceed ANSI Z87.1-2003 standards, but what does that mean to you? That means that each lens is created out of Selenite Polycarbonate die-cut down to the specific size to fit the SLAY frames in order to eliminate distortion and provide the most clarity from any angle your eyeballs can turn. Selenite Polycarbonate is 10 times more impact resistant than glass, resin lenses, and blows away global impact standards! Let's put that in layman's terms. I could fire 20 .25 caliber pellets at your eyeballs with these glasses on at 150 FPS and they have been tested to take the beating and keep on making you look good. Alternately, we could drop an Apple Ipad on your face from 50" and at least your eyes would be okay with the Wiley X Slay sunglasses on. Now that's protection.
There are two styles of the Wiley X Slay sunglasses offered here for different purposes. The Wiley-X Slay Black Ops Safety Sunglasses with Matte Black Frame and Smoke Grey Lens were created with the military in mind boasting a Matte Black frame to not catch attention in the light as well as the subdued Wiley X logo on the side. The smoke grey lenses provide the best glare reduction and won’t distort colors especially in places like Iraq or Afghanistan allowing only a 20% light transmission.
The Wiley-X Slay Safety Sunglasses with Gloss Black Frame and Polarized Smoke Grey Lens are more for hard core shooters, law enforcement types, or fishing enthusiasts to draw attention with the gloss black frame that catches the light to distinguish you from those around you. The Wiley X logo stands out in silver so that everyone knows you're wearing top of the line sunglasses that carry virtually indestructible frames and shatterproof lenses. Additionally, you get the added benefit of polarized lenses on top of the previously described smoke grey lenses which only allows a 11% light transmission. Polarization allows for even better clarity and contrast through the lens view in addition to being able to look through the water better without the glare from the sun's reflection. These sunglasses were made for you.
