SIG SAUER 9x45 ZULU9 Binoculars (Graphite)
Key Features
  • Extra Low-Dispersion Glass Objectives
  • Phase-Corrected Abbe-Koenig Prisms
  • SpectraCoat Fully Multi-Coated Optics
  • Wide 65° Apparent Viewing Angle

Forgoing traditional magnification and objective configurations, the Sig Sauer 9x45 ZULU9 Binoculars slightly increase both to boost key specifications like exit pupil, field of view, and angle of view, making this optic an ideal choice for the boat, trail, or range. Sig engineered them with Abbe-Koenig prisms which make the optical tubes thinner than conventional roof prism binoculars' tubes, translating to a more comfortable feel in the hand and a more secure grip. Complementing the prisms are extra low-dispersion/high transmission glass, multiple proprietary lens coatings, and phase-correction prism coatings which produce bright and clear high-contrast images with true color fidelity across the entire wide field of view.

Forgoing traditional magnification and objective configurations, the Sig Sauer 9x45 ZULU9 Binoculars slightly increase both to boost key specifications like exit pupil, field of view, and angle of view, making this optic an ideal choice for the boat, trail, or range. Sig engineered them with Abbe-Koenig prisms which make the optical tubes thinner than conventional roof prism binoculars' tubes, translating to a more comfortable feel in the hand and a more secure grip. Complementing the prisms are extra low-dispersion/high transmission glass, multiple proprietary lens coatings, and phase-correction prism coatings which produce bright and clear high-contrast images with true color fidelity across the entire wide field of view.

Their wide viewing angle and 9x magnification allows for better viewing of distant objects versus an 8x, but without the visible hand-shake common in 10x binoculars; and the short 6' close-focus distance enables exceptionally detailed observation of birds, bugs, and insects at feeders or bushes. Rounding out the optical performance is a comfortable, long eye relief and wide exit pupil that will cover the eye even when fully dilated in low-light conditions.

For long-duration observation sessions, the ZULU9 can be mounted on a tripod via a user-supplied optional adapter. Rubber armoring helps to give protection from drops and impacts while helping to provide a non-slip grip. Designed for durability, the lightweight polymer chassis is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for fogproof performance and makes them submersible to 3.3 feet for up to 30 minutes. Twist-up eyecups provide a custom-fit eye relief for use with or without eye-wear.

Optical Performance

  • 9x magnification
  • 45mm objective lenses
  • Compact Abbe-Koenig style roof prisms
    • Reduced internal diffraction compared to conventional roof prisms for brighter images
    • More compact design allows for thinner optical tubes for a more comfortable grip
  • HDX extra low-dispersion, high-transmission glass elements corrects chromatic aberration for true color rendition and improved contrast
  • Fully multi-coated optics with a series of proprietary lens coatings
  • Short 6' minimum focus distance
  • 378' field of view at 1000 yards
  • Wide 65° apparent angle of view
  • Long 17.3mm eye relief
  • Comfortable 5.0mm exit pupil

Proprietary Optical Coatings

  • SpectraCoat lens coatings:
    • Broadband, anti-reflection coatings
    • Reduce surface reflections across the entire visible spectrum
    • Improves overall light transmission for brighter images
  • Phase-correction silver prism coatings improve image brightness, contrast, and resolution
  • LenShield lens coatings repels water, oil, and other materials to keep lens clear and clean
  • LensArmor lens coatings resists scratches and abrasions
