First Ballistic Spectacle to Meet the "Face Form Requirement" and Provide Lateral Protection Recognized for Battle-Proven Record
Wiley X® Eyewear is proud to announce that its renowned Wiley X Talon(TM) ballistic eyewear line has been issued National Stock Number (NSN) 4240-01-583-5158, (and NSN 6540-01-584-0073 to its Rx plug-in) by the US government. NSNs are assigned to products in use by the federal government with a proven track record in specific applications, paired with a strong history of ongoing governmental procurement.
While the Wiley X Talon is available through GSA, the issuance of an NSN number is a completely separate category. Products are given a 13-digit numeric code identifying all the 'standardized material items of supply' as recognized by the United States Department of Defense, thus the US government and military agencies can now specify the Wiley X Talon by its NSN nomenclature.
The Wiley X Talon is an interchangeable smoke and clear lens system widely recognized as preferred eyewear in the US military and law enforcement arena. It has a versatile, wrap-around design that provides the ultimate in both peripheral vision, while providing comprehensive protection. The system is created with shatterproof Selenite(TM) lenses that feature T- Shell(TM) lens coating that resists scratching in extreme environments, and meets both US MIL-PRF-31013 VO ballistic impact and ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity impact standards.
The Wiley X Talon provides a wide range of unmatched options that has made it the go-to system for the armed forces. Itʼs night vision (NVG) compatible, heat resistant and provides 100% UVA/UVB protection with distortion-free clarity. Perhaps most compellingly, it is designed with a high performance new Rx-compatible design - making headaches and the potential for disorientation found in other brands obsolete. Plus, the prescription "plug-in" feature is robust, and can be fit with ease by any optometrist, and the segment is even compatible with a number of other popular Wiley X lines, including the Wiley X Spear and new WX Patriot goggles. In fact, Wiley X is the only APEL supplier to design and produce an Rx carrier solution that actually meets the specifications requested by the army of all its eyewear suppliers.
"Weʼre honored to have the Wiley X Talon receive this level of national official acceptance, and have had the pleasure of providing the kind of equipment that helps keep our troops safe at home and abroad for more than two decades," says Steve Gerlovich, Wiley X Vice President of Government Sales. "Our team looks forward to continuing to provide high performance solutions for these demanding applications in the decades ahead."
