The Travelite V series binoculars incorporate several features designed to make them more user friendly while enhancing optical performance. Despite this series of optical, physical and ergonomic improvements, Nikon has lowered retail prices of Travelite V models significantly from the previous model series due to manufacturing and production advances.
Nikon Travelite V binoculars utilize precision ground, multicoated optics, and high index BaK4 prisms for true color rendition, maximum sharpness and enhanced light transmission. The binoculars use aspherical eyepiece lenses which provide a very flat viewing field and offer markedly improved edge-to-edge sharpness over many conventional lenses.
The Travelite V is available in eight, nine, ten and twelve power versions, all featuring large, conveniently located central focus knobs and clicking diopters. Each model in the series features 25mm objective lenses for maximum light gathering. Close focus distance is under fourteen feet for all models. The fields of view range from 220 feet in the 12 power version, to 294 feet in the eight and nine power models.
An ergonomically contoured, carbon-fiber body makes the Travelite V easy to use for long viewing sessions without physical fatigue. The lightweight body encases a rugged all-metal chassis and is covered with a durable black rubber armor that provides added shock resistance and a positive grip in slippery conditions.
