Nikon’s black 8×42 ProStaff 3S Binocular features silver-alloy coated roof prisms and anti-reflection multi-coated optics that produce bright and clear high-contrast images with true color rendition across its entire field of view. Its 8x magnification brings subjects up-close without the noticeable hand-shake often associated with higher power optics. The combination of prisms, optical coatings, and a respectable angle of view, users can enjoy an immersive observational experience in most lighting conditions, and even in the most extreme weather. Whether you’re hunting or birding, boating or watching your favorite team, this ProStaff will quickly become indispensable for all you’re outdoor activities.

Complementing the optical performance are construction details that make the binocular durable and comfortable to use. It has a lightweight and durable reinforced polycarbonate resin chassis, and is protected by black rubberized armor that is textured to give it a non-slip grip. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof – especially in extreme weather conditions. A right-eye diopter adjustment allows the binocular to be customized to most people’s needs, and the combination of long eye relief and twist-up eyecups ensure comfortable use with or without eyewear.
