As a long-time supplier of products designed to protect U.S. soldiers in action, eyewear innovator Wiley X® has always supported our troops and encouraged all Americans to remember the true meaning of Veteran’s Day.  With the introduction of a new Limited Edition package for its popular WX Rebel Active Series sunglass, Wiley X has made it easy for people across the country to do both, as well.

This unique package features the popular Active Series WX Rebel in a frame/lens combination never before offered by Wiley X. This special edition sunglass will pair striking Polarized Crimson Mirror lenses with a distinctive frame combining a Matte Black exterior finish, Gloss Gunmetal interior finish and accented with Gunmetal WX temple badges.  The result is a sunglass that delivers a bold new look with the crystal-clear, glare-free vision to take on any outdoor adventure –  whether on the water, deep in the backcountry or out on the open highway.


This special Wiley X Veteran’s Day package also includes a Limited Edition Case, Limited Edition Micro Fiber Bag and a Numeric Troops Direct Challenge Coin, along with this exclusive pair of high-performance sunglasses.   

Only 500 of these exclusive packages will be made, and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Beginning on Veteran’s Day (November 11), the public will be able to buy these Limited Edition packages exclusively through Wiley X’s website.  The entire package will retail for $130, with 50% of the proceeds going to Troops Direct, a non-profit, action-oriented organization dedicated to helping our soldiers around the world get whatever they need, when they need it.

“Our company has always felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude and appreciation for the brave men and women serving our country around the world,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr.  “Troops Direct is an organization committed to meeting their needs and making sure our heroes don’t have to go without. This unique sunglass package is a great way for us to honor the meaning of Veteran’s Day, while also raising awareness and much-needed funds to support this organization’s efforts,” added Freeman.

Troops Direct (troopsdirect.org) supports America’s front-line troops with the objective of making them the healthiest, most energized and highest spirited Marines, soldiers, aircrew and sailors possible.  It serves as a non-profit “back-line” of supply for units based in Afghanistan, Africa, at sea or other hot spots, providing them with everything from medical supplies and comfort items to replacement parts and equipment needed to maintain unit operation.

These Active Series shades are designed for the active lifestyle, with a lightweight, yet nearly indestructible wraparound frame and shatterproof lenses featuring Wiley X’s glare-cutting Filter 8™ polarizing technology.  Like all Active Series models, the WX Rebel also features a soft rubber nosepiece and temple tips, to provide a secure, comfortable fit – even when the action gets hot and sweaty. 

The Wiley X name stands for protection, and this Limited Edition WX Rebel is no exception.  All Wiley X models meet stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, for OSHA-grade vision protection in every situation. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of vision protection in every pair of glasses it makes – a main reason why the company has been a leading provider of protective eyewear to the U.S. military, law enforcement and other tactical users for more than 25 years.
