The Vixen Artes ED 8.5 x 45 DCF Binoculars provides a bright, crisp 7 field of view image in a durable housing that is both solid and lightweight. Vixen combines seven layer multi-coated optics with ED lenses and high refractive index BaK4 / SK15 prisms to suppress chromatic aberration and provide an incredibly sharp and high contrast image. Phase coated prisms also minimize reflected light streaks and ghosting.

The body is waterproof so you can use your new binoculars in any weather condition, and the special hydrophobic lens coatings resist debris, so dirt, oil and other debris is easy to clean off. The housing is also made of a magnesium alloy, making these binoculars strong, yet lightweight. The open hinge design allows placing your fingers between the barrels, providing a firm and comfortable grip.

The binocular weighs 31oz, and includes a neck strap, soft case, and caps for both the eyepiece and objective ends. Designed and Manufactured in Japan.
