Outfitted with a magnification and objective lens size favored by hunters, birders, and outdoor enthusiasts around the world, the Hawke Optics 10x42 Frontier HD X Binoculars are packed with features to greatly enhance your glassing experience, including phase-corrected and dielectric-coated BAK4 roof prisms and anti-reflection fully multi-coated objective lenses. These work together to produce a versatile and capable optic optimized for long-distance observation, with bright and clear images and accurate color rendition. Additionally, their exceptional field of view will allow you to take in sweeping vistas or a playing field without having to move your head very much and greatly increasing your comfort and enjoyment. Coupled with the optical features are full-sized 42mm diameter objectives that draw in copious amounts of light to push their usability from the predawn hours all the way through to dusk.

Complementing the optical performance are construction details that make these binoculars durable and comfortable to use. The lightweight and durable magnesium-alloy chassis is protected by a green rubberized armor that is textured for a nonslip grip. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature or environmental conditions. A right-eye diopter adjustment and twist-up eyecups allow the binoculars to be customized to most people's needs and can be comfortably used with or without eyewear. Protecting the objectives and eyepieces are tethered caps that come off fast for easy reaction to glassing opportunities without the possibility of losing them.

Optical Performance

  • High 10x magnification brings distant subjects in for close viewing and identification
  • 42mm objective lenses provide the light-gathering capability required for enhanced low-light performance without the associated bulk and weight of larger lenses
  • BAK4 prisms deliver a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Dielectric prism coatings boost internal surface reflectivity to greater than 99% for maximum light transmission through the prism with minimal loss and diffraction and improved contrast and clarity
  • Phase-corrected prism coatings reduce internal interference to improve contrast, clarity, and resolution
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated lenses maximize light transmission for bright and clear images with accurate color rendition
  • Water-repellent exterior lens coating allows water to bead and run off to ensure clear views in inclement weather conditions
  • Wide 64° apparent angle of view helps to minimize the appearance of distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics
  • 336-foot field of view at 1000 yards

Use and Handling

  • Closed bridge configuration offers a stable platform for the internal focusing mechanism
  • Fast focusing system runs through the minimum focus distance to infinity in just 1.5 turns to make acquiring subjects fast and tracking moving targets easy
  • Large slip-resistant center focus wheel is easy to manipulate in cold or wet conditions or when wearing gloves
  • Right-eye diopter adjustment enables users to compensate for optical prescription for sharper views
  • Wide 56-74mm interpupillary adjustment range allows easy use by wide variety of people
  • Twist-up click-stop eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear; removable and replaceable
  • 15mm eye relief improves viewing comfort and reduces eyestrain during long glassing sessions
  • Comfortable 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils as they open and dilate in low light

Construction Details

  • Lightweight, strong, and corrosion-resistant magnesium-alloy chassis
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature and environmental conditions, and IPX7-rated waterproof and submersible to a depth of 3.3' (1m) for up to 30 minutes
  • Green rubberized armor exterior protects against bumps and impacts
  • Ergonomically placed ribbed palm pads provide a nonslip, stable, and comfortable grip
  • Tethered objective caps and one-piece ocular rainguard provide optimum protection against rain and dust while remaining close at hand without the possibility of losing them
