The 8x42 Rebel Binocular from Redfield has the build quality and optical performance to make this set of glasses a go-to optic for budget-conscious naturalists and hunters. This durable binocular has a nitrogen-filled, rubber-armored polycarbonate housing that provides weather-resistant performance while remaining lightweight and easy to handle. Rubber gripping ridges on the center focus wheel are deeply knurled and enable precise focusing in wet or cold conditions—even while wearing gloves. Further enhancing the user-friendly features of the Rebel binocular is a comfortable 17mm eye relief and twist-up eyecups that are especially accommodating for eyeglass wearers.
Aside from the construction and handling features that Redfield packs into their binoculars, the 8x42 Rebel boasts a fully multicoated optical path that has BaK-4 prism glass. The resulting images are transmitted with enhanced brightness and contrast, allowing the viewer to appreciate a fine degree of detail and color saturation. An ability to focus to within six feet, as well as an expansive 60° apparent viewing angle make these glasses ideal for close-up viewing tasks like birding; their 8x optics gives them enough magnification power to handle most other recreational observations as well.
Redfield backs their entire lineup of sporting optics with a "No Excuses" Lifetime Warranty, which protects the optic against manufacturing and material defects for the life of their original owner. Consistently delivering quality, reliability and affordability is what Redfield strives to do best.
