Wiley X has become a major provider of eyewear for anglers, hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, and extreme athletes without compromising their original oath to provide the best in eye protection. The same dependable eyewear that’s used by U.S armed forces is available to everyday consumers, and now, with their latest CAPTIVATE lens technology, everyone can stay protected while colors appear more clearly and vividly. 

So what is CAPTIVATE? 

CAPTIVATE lenses make colors clearer and more intense. They help eliminate the blur where green, red, and blue wavelengths merge, providing clearer optics. By removing the blur, people can see further into the distance as well as get a more accurate color representation without the haze caused by blue light. Furthermore, all CAPTIVATE lenses are polarized, which reduces the glare off of mirrored surfaces, making them ideal for water sports. 

CAPTIVATE lenses help fishing enthusiasts see the water more clearly.  They enhance the wearer’s vision to help them make out things in the water and see things in the distance. CAPTIVATE lenses become a tool to help make fishing more productive and fun.

Recently, Wiley X made a massive push into the fishing world. By sponsoring top Major League Fishing anglers such as Edwin Evers, Jacob Wheeler, Mark Daniels, Jr., and Greg Vinson and becoming the official eyewear of MLF, Wiley X’s popularity with both fishing pros and hobbyists has exploded. Anglers from around the world are starting to realize that Wiley X’s polarized eyewear isn’t just another accessory – it’s an essential piece of equipment that anyone would love to have in their tackle box. 

One of the most significant aspects of CAPTIVATE lenses is that they can be worn across multiple outdoor activities – which isn’t the case for most other color-enhancing lenses. Ensuring that people could use a single pair of sunglasses during all of their adventures was one of Wiley X’s biggest goals and accomplishments when developing CAPTIVATE.

As a company that was founded on the principle of protection, all of Wiley X’s adult eyewear meets the stringent ANSI Z87.1 safety standards for high velocity/high mass impacts and optical clarity at a minimum and CAPTIVATE is no different. CAPTIVATE also comes with a premium scratch-resistant cured dip and an oleophobic/hydrophobic layer that prevents oils and water from sticking to the lenses.
