Steiner Merlin 10x42

$527.00 to $640.00



Named for a small bird of prey that relies on speed and stealth to take its quarry, the Merlin binocular features similar traits. The Merlin's Fast-Focus center-focus system enables users to view the entire focus range with less than one full turn of the focus wheel. Therefore, users can zero in on their subjects quickly and easily, with very little movement, allowing them to observe wildlife with little risk of detection. Yet the precise focus wheel allows for razor sharp adjustments and holds views in focus for as long as the user desires. Water-resistant and encased in a dark, non-reflective, rubber-armored body, the Merlin can be used outdoors under any conditions. The earth-toned armoring actually camouflages the binocular to a bird's eye. Weighing under 24 ounces, the binocular is easy to carry on its own padded neck strap, or in a pack or jacket pocket.Minimize

Nikon Action Ex Extreme 8X40

$90.00 to $247.00



Nikon's 8x40 Action series binoculars are an excellent all-around choice. High magnification and wide field of view gives you a clear, detailed look at faraway objects. Wide Perspective allows youto see a 430 feet wide field of view at 1000 yards, nearly 60% more than other 8x binoculars. These binoculars were designed to deliver bright, distortion-free images. Precision-aligned, multi-coated lenses and anti-reflective internal surfaces minimize light loss. Eyeglass wearers can better appreciate the view, as well, thanks to the folding rubber eye cups. The Extreme feature is significant because it means that the Action 8x40 can be used under extreme weather conditions. It is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for total waterproof, fogproof and shockproof capability. A non-slip, rubberized exterior makes for an easy and secure grip.Minimize
