The Vanguard 8x42 VEO ED Binoculars address the particular demands of hunters, birders, and outdoor enthusiasts by delivering bright high-contrast images with accurate true-to-life color and crisp clarity even when observing from long distances. To achieve this optical performance, these binoculars feature anti-reflection fully multi-coated extra-low dispersion (ED) glass with phase-correcting coatings on the BAK4 roof prisms. The combination of moderate magnification and generous objective lens diameter produces a wide exit pupil and and long eye relief that greatly improves viewing comfort with reduced eye strain, especially in low light.
Designed to stand up to a lifetime of outdoor use, their chassis is made of a lightweight and durable composite material that is also corrosion resistant to make it ideal for boaters. The optical tubes are waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature or environmental conditions. Vanguard includes tethered front and rear lens caps to add an additional layer of protection in the field, with the ability to quickly react to glassing opportunities without fear of losing the caps.
