Nikon's Monarch All Terrain Binoculars have long meant quality and ruggedness for hunters serious about their glassing
The new 12x42 Monarch has all the features that Nikon ATBs have become famous for, fully multicoated lenses, waterproof and fogproof construction, phase-corrected, mirror-coated prisms, huge eye relief (a full 15.4 mm), 262-foot field of view and turn-and-slide eyecups that make for all day viewing comfort even with eyeglasses. And tipping the scales at only 21.8 ounces, the new Monarch packs a lot of power into an incredibly compact 5.7" x 5" frame.
Built with the same rugged body housing as its 8x42 and 10x42 Monarch ATB siblings, the 12x42 is also as tough as it is good looking. With rugged rubber armor for added durability and a firm grip even in the worst conditions, Nikon guarantees every ATB to be 100% waterproof and fogproof.
