Description: A roof prism binocular with a hearty feature-set that's easy on the wallet and the environment? Yes! - the Monarch ATB 8x42 Team REALTREE from Nikon is here - it's layered with assets, and it won't break the bank when you bring one home.

Nikon's proprietary lead and arsenic free optical-glass formula, known as Eco-Glass, is used for all lenses and prisms in this fine Monarch binocular. All of the air-to-glass surfaces are fully multicoated to ensure maximum light transmission, sharpness, and contrast. The roof prisms are finished with a dielectric coating that enhances the efficiency of the optical system to near perfection.

This easy-to-handle optic is fully waterproof and fogproof, and a tactile rubberized exterior ensures a secure grip at all times. The centered focus knob is fast, accurate, and easy to use. A pair of multi-setting click-stop eyecups and a notable 19.6 mm of eye relief allow you to tailor the binocular to suit your needs - whether you're wearing glasses or not. The binocular's rubber armoring has been finished in a REALTREE APG HD camouflage print that offers excellent concealment opportunities.

Note! Covered by Nikon's lifetime no-fault repair/replacement policy

Review Date: Fri May 11, 2012 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $249.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Price, Quality, Weight
Cons: Eyepiece Caps are flimsy

A great product that is truly a pleasure to use. It is light weight, but also delivers a great image. With these new binoculars I am able to ID birds much quicker than my old Bushnells.

I would recommend these binoculars to anyone looking for a great pair on a budget.
