Nikon® Monarch HG™ Binoculars - 8x42mm & 10x42mm
The Nikon® Monarch HG™ is an all-new class-leading binocular from Nikon. New for 2017, this binocular features excellent performance, durability, and value. Featuring Nikon’s patented ED glass and their new field flattening technology, you will experience crisper colors and better clarity than any other binocular in this category.
The Monarch HG™ is specifically designed to provide wider field of views, while maintaining edge-to-edge clarity. On the 8x42mm model, the field of view is 8.9 degrees, while the 10x42mm model provides a 6.9 degree field of view. In most optical products, you will notice colors and clarity at the edges are somewhat blurred, providing a sweet spot in the center, but restricting peripheral viewing. With the field flattening system, you will have full focus to the edges of your field of view, which will increase the odds of spotting game or movement that is outside of the sweet spot of most binoculars.
While building the Monarch HG™, Nikon® did not compromise on build quality and durability. Constructed from a magnesium alloy frame, this binocular is both lightweight and durable. The rubberized exterior will provide ample grip in all conditions, ensuring that your binoculars stay firmly in your hands. The interior lenses and prisms are shielded from fogging at altitudes up to 16,000 feet, which is far beyond any other binocular in this category. The Nikon® Monarch HG™ is also fully waterproof, and features Nikon’s Forever Warranty™, which protects your investment for life!
One of the biggest advances in technology with optics has been the lens coatings. To preserve the long-term optical acuity, Nikon® added scratch-resistant coatings to the Monarch HG™, which is a welcome addition to any hunting optic. Nikon® used a higher quality multilayer coating on both the lenses and prisms in the Monarch HG™, which produces truer colors, higher light transmission, and higher contrast and resolution. The use of lead and arsenic-free glass also preserves lens quality and ensures safety to the consumer.
A frequently overlooked feature on most binoculars is the ability to compensate and adapt to the owner’s eyes. The Nikon® Monarch HG™ offers higher individual eyecup adjustability than just about any binoculars on the market, with the added ability to lock your settings to ensure that every time you pull out your binoculars, the settings are right where you need them. Additionally, these binoculars feature long eye relief with turn-and-slide eyecups, which ensure that your eyes are the correct distance, whether you wear glasses or not.
Weighing in at a pound and a half, these binoculars will pack well in your bivy or backpack. Each Nikon® Monarch HG™ includes a carrying strap, lens covers, a soft neoprene case, as well as a lens cloth for cleaning your glass. The Monarch HG™ is one of the best values on the market and is sure to impress even the most discerning user.
