Nikon Prostaff 5 binoculars are characterized by high resistance in the toughest conditions. Watertight and anti-fogged body is made of glass fiber reinforced polycarbonates. Thanks to this, it stands out due to its high rigidity while maintaining a small mass. Covering the housing with rubber additionally protects the device against shocks, while ensuring a better grip during observation.
The advanced optical system allows you to see even the smallest details, revealing to the user the beauty of wildlife. Multilayer anti-reflective coatings provide a clear, natural image. All lenses and prisms are made of ecological glass, which does not contain lead or arsenic.
The high comfort of observation is ensured by rotatable-sliding eyecups, equipped with a position lock. This solution makes it easier to set the binoculars correctly in relation to the eyes, and the large offset of the pupil allows you to look at the entire field of view, including those wearing glasses.
This device focuses a lot of light. Looking directly at the sun through this device can result in partial or complete loss of vision.
