Get a notable magnification and a true depth perception of night scenes with the Armasight's Dark Strider 1st Generation Night Vision Binocular. This night vision device combines all the right characteristics to provide optimal performance with two 1st generation intensifier tubes: noticeable zoom with 5 x magnification; larger than average 14° angular field of view; large 50mm multicoated objectives for scooping more infrared light; and a built-in infrared illuminator with a flood lens for improved range and observing targets in total darkness. To augment the optical performance, its convenience features follow the suit. The binocular also has a diopter adjustment and twist-up eyecups.

The housing is made of lightweight and durable glass-fiber reinforced composite with a contoured rubberized covering. It offers water- and fog-resistant protection for the electronics and tethered rubber lens caps to protect the objectives. Also included are one CR123A lithium battery, tethered objective lens cups, soft carrying case, neck lanyard, and lens tissue.

          Comments about Armasight Dark Strider 1st Generation Night Vision Binocular:

          I'm a sailor. Recently, I brought a sailboat north from NC to NJ. I'm 63 and I have less than great eyesight, especially at night. Distance glasses help but I was overwhelmed with the ability of the Dark Strider Night Vision binoculars to really let me see what I was looking at on the water on a moonless night. I could see light, but I was too far to determine if the boat aspect was away or toward me. Fortunately, I was able to see not only the fishing boat, but the head on aspect. I made a course change and there was no issue. Best to be able to determine a hazard early on rather than scramble at the last minute. Thank you B&H, and thank you Armasight!
