As one of Steiner’s pairs of tactical binoculars, the Steiner T1042 boasts combat-worthy qualities. It is a mid-range, compact set of binos suitable for hunting, scoping, stalking and general wildlife spotting.

These binoculars are equipped with a high-definition tactical optics system, guaranteeing the highest light transmission possible for sharp edge-to-edge clarity. Even in low-light settings, they can deliver images with high contrast.

With fully multi-coated lenses, they allow you to see images clearly without causing eye strain in the long run.

Thanks to military-grade rubber armoring, the Steiner T1042’s chassis and lenses are protected from harsh conditions. This rubber armor also minimizes noise, enabling you to perform tactical operations without being detected. It has a firm grip, so you can handle it well amidst challenging circumstances.

More importantly, these binoculars are fogproof. They are incorporated with Steiner’s N2 Injection system, so you can still see images clearly at high peaks or low temperatures. They are also waterproof to a depth of 16’.

The Fast-Close Focus system on the Steiner T1042 comes with a user-friendly central focus knob. You can easily adjust and attain the right focus without constantly rotating the knob.

For a comfortable viewing experience, these binoculars have been designed with an eye relief of 16 mm. Whether you are wearing eyeglasses or not, you won’t hurt your eyes looking through the optics all day long.

The Steiner T1042 might require some getting used to, especially if you are not experienced when it comes to using binoculars. It might take a while for you to know how to use it properly and maximize its features.
