 Leading performance sunglass manufacturer Wiley X, Inc. has added two new models to its popular Climate Control Series, the WX Echo and the WX Gravity.  These sharp-looking new shades are the first sport performance sunglasses certified to meet U.S. Military Specifications for combat protective eyewear.

These two new-for-2012 Climate Control models combine attractive, wraparound style and Rx-ready frames with Wiley X's patented removable Facial Cavity Seal.  This proven design eliminates peripheral light while protecting the wearer's eyes against irritants such as wind, dust and debris that can contribute to eye injuries and Dry Eye Syndrome.  As a result, the new WX Echo and WX Gravity provide sharp vision and eye comfort in the most challenging environments, whether it's driving a boat at high speed, riding a mountain bike on a dusty trail or hitting the open highway with the top down.

The new WX Echo is available in a variety of distinctive and functional frame/lens combinations, including a Smoke Steel Blue frame with Silver Flash lenses, a Gloss Black frame with Polarized Emerald Mirror lenses, and a Gloss Black frame with Wiley X's exclusive Light Adjusting (LA) Grey lenses that lighten and darken as the sun dictates.

The stylish new WX Gravity is offered with an eye-catching Black Crystal frame matched with Polarized Blue Mirror lenses, a Brown Crystal frame with Bronze Flash lenses and a Gloss Black frame with Light Adjusting (LA) Grey lenses.  In addition, a special Wiley X Black Ops edition Gravity boasts a stealthy combination of Matte Black frame and Smoke Grey lenses.

Both the WX Echo and WX Gravity provide the highest level of protection for the wearer, a primary reason Wiley X is a leading provider of protective eyewear to U.S. armed forces around the world.  Both the new WX Echo and WX Gravity have earned the stringent ANSI Z87.1-2003 High Velocity and High Mass impact safety rating for serious protection on the job and during any outdoor activity.  In fact, Wiley X is the only premium performance sunwear brand whose entire line meets the ANSI safety rating.  Both styles also go above and beyond to meet the military's GL-PD 10-12 safety standards.
