Great for Birdwatching
Nikon PROSTAFF 7S 8x42

If you are looking for a lightweight yet high-performing pair of Nikon binoculars, PROSTAFF 7S 8×42 is a perfect choice. Suitable for birdwatching, hiking, and other extreme outdoor activities, it is a compact, all-terrain pair of binoculars featuring Nikon’s advanced optical system.

The multilayer coatings applied to the entire lens and prism surfaces, which transmit light, enhance light transmittance. Effectively, these coatings deliver a more natural view because there is a reduced loss of light.

Despite being lightweight, the PROSTAFF 7S 8×42 is as durable as any Nikon binoculars with a body made of fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin. The shock-resistant, rubber-armored coating offers a non-slip grip, so you can expect it to withstand even the wettest conditions. Also, it is filled with nitrogen and sealed with O-Ring to ensure that it is completely waterproof and fogproof. With these characteristics, it is definitely built to last.

Using this pair of binoculars for hours won’t cause discomfort, thanks to the turn-and-slide rubber eyecups that let you easily adjust the eye-relief for a custom fit. Your field of view won’t be compromised even during extended periods of use. Moreover, convenience is also a key feature of this pair. A strap is included so that you can wear it around your neck. You may also mount it on a tripod using the optional tripod adaptor.
