WILEY X PRODUCTS

Over the past 17 years or so that CharkBait has been around we've carried many lines of sunglasses. We've offered them on-line, but in recent years we've left them off the website. They really were a rather difficult product to represent well on-line, head sizes differ, folks like to try them on...and probably should given that fit is an important consideration. Most manufacturers didn't provide good information in that regard, it was hit or miss. The other thing that I griped about with respect to sunglasses was their cost. We've stocked Costa's, Oceanwaves and other brands, as well many, many others have come and gone due to fashion trends. For something so darn necessary, there appeared to be a lot of shall we say smoke and mirrors, and quite a bit of water...when it came to costs and features. For the past three years we've stocked Wiley X products at both of our shops, but never posted them on-line. I elected to make a change and post these products on our site because they do offer some features I find beneficial, they aren't all style with little substance, they offer realistic sizing information to our clients, and they are a damn good product - given I've been wearing mine for 3 years and they have survived where my Costas, Maui and Oceanwave products have not stood the test of time. That's a personal take, others may differ, but for myself and the other guys who own Wiley X glasses who work with me, our opinions are consistent - they are the best quality going and they are rugged.

Background, I originally brought Wiley glasses into our shop based upon discussion with a fellow who worked here, he was an Army vet, mentioned that they were standard equipment for him when he served in the Gulf and Afghanistan. I'd seen their booth at ICAST, talked to them a few times, knew they had some strengths, and finally brought the line into our shop in 2009. They have only been available at our shops, not on-line, until now. Wiley X glasses are all ANSI rated, meaning they meet quality and safety standards - all of them. Wiley X frames and lenses must withstand the weight of a 1.1 lb. pointed projectile dropped from a height of 50".  Further, glasses market with a B are ballistics rated, they also meet a high velocity impact test - they must withstand the impact of a .25 inch diameter steel ball fired at a speed of 150 fps. This test is repeated 20 times from different angles to make sure Wiley X lenses and frames are practically indestructible. That pretty much ensures that they'll stand up to anything you will encounter. They provide safety to your eyes, both in terms of damage from flying objects and the suns harmful rays. All of the glasses we offer are polarized for better vision into the water and to help prevent cataracts. Lastly, Wiley X glasses can be described as safety classes, however they feel comfortable and have good looks. The combination of safety, durability and comfort contribute to provide a product we can represent to our clients with confidence in their satisfaction.

Many of the glasses we offer feature a patented Facial Cavity seal which prevents dust and pollen, as well as wind from causing eye irritation. The seal is easily removed or reinstalled as needed. I tend to use mine both when boating & fishing and when riding my motorcycle. This feature also can decrease peripheral light, that allows the polarized lenses to perform at peak levels - extraneous light is reduced so you can focus on what's important. The polarized lenses offer eight different layers to reduce glare off the water and reduce eye fatigue. This is a patented process Wiley X offers, and the results are dramatic - clarity is very good, contrasts are clear. Bottom line, if they are good enough for the military, they're good enough for the rest of us weekend warriors, and then some. If they can take enough punishment to be ANSI rated, then they'll get the job done for us fishermen...for years to come. I can honestly say, my Wiley's are the only glasses I've owned that have survived 3 years + use from me. They are durable, and the optics are excellent.

Wiley X
NEW KRYPTIC CAMO DESIGNS

WILEY X PRODUCTS

While visiting Wiley's booth at ICAST I was very favorably impressed with three new styles from this excellent firm.  The Kryptic camo patterns are battlefield tested...and they look darn trick, too. While I'm no slave to fashion...I thought these new glasses were excellent, and while my own Wiley's are giving me great service I'm backing up what I've got with another pair. The new styles are, quite simply, hot! Wiley X makes the best sunglasses on the market. No need to hype them, they're proven - provide substance over style, their newest glasses add some style we all like!

New for 2017, protective eyewear innovator Wiley X®, Inc. is introducing three popular models that combine the company’s crystal clear vision and military-grade eye protection with the unique styling and outdoor functionality of Kryptek® camouflage. Each of these new models matches a popular Wiley X frame and lens combinations with a complimentary pattern from Kryptek®, a leading American developer of battlefield-based, backcountry-ready camouflage. These new shades can give any outdoorsman a stealthy advantage in the field or on the water, yet they offer bold styling and a distinctive look you’ll be proud to wear anywhere.



The Climate Control™ Series WX Boss Model # CCBOS12 features a sleek, wraparound style frame outfitted with Polarized Venice Gold Mirror lenses. The advanced glare-cutting capability and amber tint of these lenses make them a versatile choice for a wide range of outdoor activities, especially those near water, snow and other reflective environments. Like all sunglasses in the Wiley X’s Climate Control family, this new model features a soft, removable Facial Cavity™ Seal that blocks out wind, airborne debris and reflected light and creates a comfortable, climate-controlled environment for the eyes. This WX Boss frame is completely dressed in Kryptek® Highlander® camouflage, developed for those whose adventures take them into a wide range of elevations and mixed terrain. This pairing is not only functional; it provides a matched appearance with Wiley X’s Venice Gold Mirror lenses. 

Wiley X’s popular Changeable Series WX Valor is now available with a Kryptek® Typhon™ frame. This dark-as-night pattern is the perfect compliment to the WX Valor’s stealthy look and no-nonsense performance, key reasons for its popularity with military, law enforcement and tactical wearers. Model #CHVAL12 features Polarized Smoke Grey lenses that complete this stealthy look while providing clear, distraction-free vision in a wide range of environments. Like all Changeable Series models, the WX Valor allows for easy removal and insertion of accessory lenses in the field. The WX Valor also features a double-injected nose bridge and temples for a comfortable, secure fit.

Those with a passion for offshore angling will love the WX Omega Model #ACOME12, featuring Wiley X’s Polarized Emerald Mirror lenses with an Active Lifestyle Series frame dressed in Kryptek® Neptune™camouflage. This cool, shadowy-blue camo embodies an aquatic predator lurking just beneath the surface, and empowers wearers with stealth and positive attitude as they stalk their favorite blue-water game. Wiley X’s combination of 8-layer polarization, amber tint and emerald mirror coating give fishermen the ability to visually pierce the surface and detect cruising gamefish, shoals of baitfish and predators hiding beneath weedlines. 

All adult Wiley X sunglasses meet stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing OSHA-grade protection for every type of outdoor activity. Selected models (including the WX Valor) also meet the latest updated MIL-PRF-32432 (GL) Standard for ballistic eye protection. Almost all Wiley X sunglasses are also Rx-ready using the company’s exclusive DIGIFORCE™ digital Rx lens technology, for superior prescription accuracy and unparalleled visual clarity over the widest possible field of vision.
