Looking for a high-performance birding binocular that can withstand even the harshest wilderness conditions? Search no further than the Steiner HX 8x42. With a magnification that fares well when finding birds in thick foliage and an objective lens size that won't succumb to low-light settings, the HX 8x42 is an optimal choice for the intrepid birder. Every optical surface of this binocular is fully multi-coated with proprietary broad-band coatings to amp up light transmission, enhance contrast, and provide high-fidelity color representation across the visible spectrum. Outward-facing lenses on the Steiner HX 8x42 feature Nano Protection coatings to ward off dirt, dust, oil, and water particles, keeping the glass clear and easy to clean. The Makrolon polycarbonate chassis is resistant to corrosion, impacts, and temperature fluctuations that could shift the barrels out of alignment over time. Durable NBR rubber armoring protects the exterior and provides a firm grip even in the wettest climates. The German-made Steiner HX 8x42 is also nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and fog-proof, making this sturdy birding binocular the perfect companion wherever the adventure takes you.
