Steiner 12x56 Nighthunter XP Binoculars

Dawn. Dusk. In the shadows or even in nearly total darkness… you’ll see what others miss with Steiner Nighthunter XP – binoculars that deliver unparalleled low-light performance.

The new Nighthunter XP Binocular now feature water repelling, NANO-Protection lenses on the outer objective and ocular lenses to prevent adhesion of water and moisture to the lens surface, greatly reducing fogging so water and snow just slide off of the objective and ocular lenses. Waterproof and submersible, these rugged binoculars are purged and uniquely over-pressurized with Nitrogen to 7 psi.

The Steiner Nighthunter XP Binoculars incorporate the exclusive Steiner Sports Auto-Focus system. Once set for the user's eyes, the binocular keeps all objects in focus at distances from approximately 20 yards to infinity. Because of the greater depth of field in the Steiner Porro-prism design, the focus feature allows the observer to pre-focus at a selected distance in twilight and know that the binoculars will remain in focus, in dim light, when it would be impossible to focus the binocular in a normal manner.

The Steiner Nighthunter XP High Definition (HD) lens coating makes them literally the brightest binoculars made anywhere. Do you want to see what others missed? Do you want to see better in the dark? The Nighthunter XP is for you! Nighthunter XP technology sets a new standard in brightness to let you see in almost impossible light conditions.

All Steiner Nighthunter XP binoculars are built for several lifetimes of rugged use, constructed to U.S. mil spec standards for shock, fog, and waterproof performance, and include a 30-year warranty.

Steiner´s Nighthunter XP binoculars feature a unique combination of precision crafted optical glass, coated with our exclusive "HD" High Definition broad band lens coating, built into a high performance and rugged body that is especially made for high light transmission.The internal stray light reducing baffle system makes the binoculars brighter than any other binoculars. The above simulation is an example of the Nighthunter's light gathering power. With our one time Sports Auto-Focus system, you won't have to worry about focusing in low light: everything will be in focus once initially set for your eyes.

Steiner 12x56 Nighthunter XP Binoculars

The 12x56 Nighthunter XP are the highest power low-light binoculars available, perfect for finding big country game under low light conditions or stretching out another half hour of viewing time on the edge of a bean field. In addition to the ultra-bright Nighthunter optics, the 12 x 56 has tremendous long distance "reach-out" power. At 41 ozs. it’s lighter than other comparable binoculars, while being hefty enough for a more stable image at 12-x magnification.

The NANO-Protected exterior lens coating on both the front and rear lenses readily repels any water and moisture condensation. Also, when used with running water as a flushing agent, dirt, dust and debris are also easily cleaned from the Nano-Coated lens surfaces when the binocular is then hand-shaken dry. The XP Night Hunters also features new NBR Long-Life Armoring that will last over two times longer than conventional rubber coverings yet it retains a comfortable grip and slip-proof feel for the user.

Three different pairs of eyecups are included with the new Night Hunter XP Binoculars. These eyecups will aid users who customarily view with prescription glasses or who prefer the sidelight protection of profiled or "winged" eyecups or just require an extended eye relief. The new Nighthunter XP binoculars come with a Clic-Loc Neck Strap. A Clic-Loc cross-back shoulder harness is also available (Item no. 986).

Each Nighthunter XP includes a comfortable Neoprene carry strap with the fast Clic-Loc attachment system. A rain guard fits over the eyepieces and attaches to the strap so that rain, snow, dirt and debris will not find its way into the eyecups. On the front of the binoculars are protective objective lens caps which can be removed or reattached easily and quickly.

About Steiner

      I'm a Marine at Camp Pendleton, Ca and I have taken these Binos to the field and on the range. The Marine Corps has fielded multiple pairs or Steiner Binos but this model is far superior. The only bad thing is the price but they are truely worth it!
