An ideal companion for high-power long-distance glassing on the trail, at the stadium, or around town, the Nikon 12x25 ProStaff ATB Binocular is equipped with space-saving BAK4 reverse-Porro prisms, a multi-coated optical path, and aspherical eyepiece lenses. These features work together to produce clear and crisp high-contrast views with accurate color rendition. Nikon's proprietary Eco-Glass optics are made of environmentally-friendly lenses and prisms that don't contain lead or arsenic. Complementing the image quality, the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging; and the housing is wrapped in a textured rubber armor that provides a slip-resistant grip — especially in cold or wet weather. Weighing less than 13 ounces and measuring mere 4.5 inches long, the ProStaff ATB can easily fit in most packs, pockets, or purses without adding excessive bulk to slow you down.

12x25 ProStaff ATB Binocular (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Optics This product is great for fishing. I always like taking binoculars when I go fishing. It is great not to have to worry about getting water in them. Nature presents beautiful scenery and animals when I go fishing and this allows me to enjoy the whole picture. They are compact and comfortable on the eyes. They weigh a little more than my Trvelites, but the waterproof seals are worth it. Their size is slightly larger than my Travelites. Great optics and the 12 power is very helpful as my eyes tire easily as I age. B & H has a great price and fast shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful compact binocular The Prostaff 12x25 binocular is a wonderfully sharp, contrasty binocular. It is also brighter than expected. I am really quite surprised at just how bright it is since it is such a high power, small aperture device. It easily passes the 'Jupiter' test - Jupiter shows a well defined, round disk. Eyerelief is excellent. Focusing is precise and convenient. It balances well in the hands and has a nice tactile feel. All in all a keeper - a real winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12x magnification, no shaking problems Before I got these binoculars, I was a bit concerend about shaking problems that could come with 12x maginification binoculars, but it turned out there were no problems. I spotted and looked at the climbers at Yosemite's El Capitan rock without any problems, I got a perfect sharp image. I watched Blue Angels air show at 2011 San Francisco Fleet Week, I could see pilots inside the cockpits. No shaking problems, AT ALL. These binoculars are built well. They feel solid in my hands. Overall they are very good product with great performance for the price. However, I'm not sure about their durability because they are made in China. But again the price is rather reasonable so I'd be satisfied if they give me five years of good service. I highly recommend these binoculars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Binocular! I use these for watching birds at the feeders and beyond, wildlife on the lake, and fishing boats out on the ocean. And even for watching waves smash into some rock islands five miles out-to-sea. They work very well and I am completely satisfied with them. I am particularly impressed with how clear and bright everything looks. And with how well they work for short distances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great clarity at an affordable price We recently purchased these for bird watching larger raptors. They are great and very affordable. You get the clarity in the lens you expect from Nikon at an affordable price. They are a bit heavier than some of the other smaller models we compared, but very manageable and well worth it for the quality and being water and fog proof. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Compact and Amazing Clarity! After thoroughly researching binoculars, I decided upon the Nikon 12X25 ProStaff ATB to take on an Alaskan cruise. VERY happy with my decision!! I actually have two pair of very old binoculars handed down from my grandparents who were avid bird watchers. However, they are too heavy to lug around. The Nikon ProStaff are comfortably lightweight, easily fits in my hands, easy to wear around the neck or stow away in a picket, completely adjustable for outstanding clarity and definition - and they really are waterproof!! Despite the rain while pulling into Juneau, I was scanning the tree line and easily managed to spot a gorgeous bald eagle. Scanning the ocean for whales and dolphins was a wonderfully relaxing and exciting experience. Watching for wildlife during hikes and being able to spot many four legged friends was absolutely phenomenal. In closing, the Nikon ProStaff ATB Binocular is by far the easiest to use, is completely adjustable for everyone to enjoy, very lightweight, easy to stow in a pocket and a tremendous asset for whale watching, bird watching, traveling, etc... GREAT purchase - Thank You B&H!!!
