Vanguard 1042 overview

  • 1Description

The Vanguard 10x42 Spirit XF Binocular, in black, is designed for avid outdoor enthusiasts and hunters who require an optic that can perform in the harshest conditions and survive a life on the trail. Its 10x magnification enables detailed observations from long distances, while the 42mm objectives draw in copious amounts of light for use in low-light conditions without being overly bulky or heavy like larger-objective binoculars. Complementing the power and objectives are phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms and emerald-green fully multi-coated optics that improve light transmission, color rendition, and contrast. All these features, when combined with a wide field of view, provide an immersive observational experience with high-contrast images and accurate color representation.

To stand up to the rigors of the trail, the chassis is made of a lightweight and impact-resistant magnesium alloy wrapped in black rubber armoring that not only protects the optics from drops and impacts, but provides a slip-resistant grip. An open-bridge/dual-hinge configuration helps to reduce weight without sacrificing strength while increasing the gripping surface for improved stability and comfort. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to make them water and fogproof in even the harshest conditions. Twist-up eyecups enable easy use with or without eyewear and are made to stay in-place without shifting during a climb to the blind, and the binocular is tripod mountable with an optional adapter to reduce fatigue during a long day of glassing.

Vanguard 1042 reviews

10x42 Spirit XF Binocular (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vanguard Spirit XF 1042 - Great Binoculars We use these for wildlife location, observation, and identification. They have proven to be as good as we had hoped. Excelent range, excellent clarity, no noticeable chroma problems, comfortable to hold and use, and the converable strap is a nice touch. An outstanding value for the price.
