The Nighthunter XP 8x42 Roof Prism Binocular from Steiner provides an exceptional amount of light transmission across the entire visible spectrum. You can see the difference when light is poor. While its performance in any light is unique, it is in twilight that the Nighthunter XP Roof Prism Binocular is especially appreciated. Living up to its name of Night Hunter, you can start earlier in the pre-dawn light and watch longer into the evening. This 8x42 model is powerful and rugged with great "seeing" capacity.

Steiner's hard-coated, water-repelling NANO-Protection, helps shed water, dust, and debris from the eyepieces and objectives. Fogging is reduced and rain and snow simply slip off the objectives and oculars. The high-density and XP lens coatings deliver dramatically brighter images. The Nighthunters transmit light across a very wide part of the human eye color spectrum making your eyes more nocturnal. You can see greater detail in lower light or even darkness.

The Nighthunter XP 8x42 Roof Prism Binocular has durable rubber armor for a sure grip and extra protection. It is purged and pressurized to 14 psi with dry nitrogen and argon gas to ensure crisp, clear images in severe weather conditions. It is constructed to U.S. military spec. standards for shock, fog, and waterproof performance.
