Wiley X frames, which feature streamlined, face-hugging styles and the latest in eyewear technology, make excellent sunglasses for a whole range of outdoor activities, and fishing is certainly one of them. Yet Wiley X offers so many styles…so which one to choose for a day spent at the dock or on a boat?
Rx-Safety is here to help with a few suggestions. We’ve narrowed down the large Wiley X selection to eight popular models (all with polarized lenses) that we feel are perfectly suited to fishing. Before we get to the frames, let’s examine why polarization is ideal for the sport or for any water activity.
Sunlight bounces off of surfaces and reflects in multiple directions. The natural movement of water creates many surfaces for the sun to strike, hence the blinding glare we experience when sunlight hits water. Standard sunglass lenses are designed to reduce light waves that strike the eyes both horizontally and vertically, but they do not completely block any of this light. Polarized lenses are treated with a coating that absorbs the horizontal light but allows vertical rays to pass through. Because of this, the glare caused by sunlight is effectively eliminated.
Now, as to the frames, we recommend the following, all of which exceed ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity safety standards to protect your eyes against miscast hooks or any other fishing-related dangers:
