Wiley X Eyewear launched its all-new Black Ops Collection this year. The sleek new series redefines cool, while delivering the highest level of proven protection in the industry, the company says. The latest in the all-star lineup is the Wiley X Black Ops Collection Brick — already receiving standing ovations from both the tactical elite it was designed for and folks who play and look hard simultaneously, according to a company press release.

Like its brethren in the innovative 2010 series, this new sunglass has Wiley X’s signature high performance design elements. With well-engineered lines, it has a powerful silhouette that will look great and stay right on your face, no matter what you put it through on the job or off. And those lines don’t just look cool — the frames bear the official mark of ANSI Z87.1-2003 certification. In fact, Wiley X is the only premium sunglass manufacturer who certifies all of its products to exceed ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity and high mass impact standards. That means these unbreakable matte black Triloid nylon frames can stand up to punishment like withstanding the impact of a .25-inch diameter steel ball fired at 150fps — from 20 different angles, the company says.

Sleek grey lenses are certified to the same exacting standard for high velocity impact and safety. They’re made from Selenite Polycarbonate with a special T-Shell scratch resistance feature, and provide 100% UVA/UVB protection. The versatile Wiley X Black Ops Collection Brick is one of the select options in the new series with Wiley X’s industry-leading Climate Control feature — so it provides additional customization and protection with its Facial Cavity Seal, which both keeps out debris and dust, and provides continual ventilation across the interior of the lens.

This new Rx-ready sunglass is perfect for those with medium to large sized heads, and will fit like a glove, thanks to specially designed neoprene temple socks, so it will be comfortably stable for vigorous all day wear, the company says.
