Designed with a magnification and objective lens combination favored by hunters, birders, and outdoor enthusiasts around the world for their versatility, the Vanguard 8x42 Vesta Binoculars feature a long eye relief distance and wide exit pupil diameter to make this an ideal optic for hiking, general nature watching, and getting close-up looks at game and elusive bird species in the wild. Optically, they are made with compact BAK4 roof prisms and anti-reflection Multiguard multi-coated lens surfaces to boost the light-gathering ability and produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color representation. A short close focus distance of under 7' allows niche naturalists to enjoy detailed views of bugs, birds, flora, and fauna with ease.
To withstand the rigors of the outdoors, the chassis is made of a lightweight and durable material, and each optical tube is sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging, so the binoculars will continue to perform in even the most inclement of weather. The Vesta is wrapped in a protective rubber armor to provide a slip-resistant grip, even when it's cold and wet. Their large center focusing wheel is set low on the bridge, so while they are easy to manipulate, even when wearing gloves, they present a low profile. A standard 1/4"-20 mount on the front of the bridge hinge allows you to mount your binoculars on a tripod using an optional adapter and eliminate vibrations and hand shake for clearer and crisper views.
With an ergonomic form factor, the Vesta can easily fit in most packs for transport, and their weight won't drag you down when hanging around your neck—so you can keep them ready for fast glassing on the trail or in the woods.
