Wiley X, which has long supplied protective eyewear for U.S. troops, is honoring veterans with a limited-edition package of its popular WX Rebel Active Series sunglasses.

The package, of which only 500 will be offered, features the popular Active Series WX Rebel in a frame/lens combination never before offered by Wiley X, featuring polarized crimson mirror lenses and a matte black exterior finish, gloss gunmetal interior finish and accented with gunmetal WX temple badges. The bold new look offers clear, glare-free vision for taking on any outdoor adventure. Also included are a limited-edition case, limited-edition microfiber bag and a Numeric Troops Direct Challenge Coin.

The packages are available for $130 exclusively online at wileyx.com. Fifty percent of the proceeds will go to Troops Direct, a non-profit, action-oriented organization dedicated to meeting the needs of U.S. soldiers around the world.

"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.
