WX Boss

You can now get the WX Boss with the new Kryptek Highlander frame design. Unlike traditional stick and leaf camouflage, the Kryptek design incorporates micro and macro layering inspired by artillery camouflage netting. Kryptek Highlander increases stealth when pursuing a wide range of game in mixed terrain. WX Boss sunglasses have shatterproof lenses that offer 100 percent UVA/UVB protection and are coated to resist scratches. They also feature a removable facial cavity seal that protects your eyes from fine dust, pollen, irritants as well as peripheral light.
