The Nikon Monarch 5 8x42 is a pair of rock-solid roof binoculars that you can use to make razor-sharp nature observations. Thanks to the special ED coating on the lenses and the prisms, you get a clear and detailed image. The high exit pupil ensures a sharp visibility at dusk. Is that rare Madagascan pochard sitting nearby? No problem, thanks to the 2.5-meter close focus, you can still capture it sharply. You can take the Monarch 5 with you outside without a problem, because it's mist-resistant and water-resistant. The rubber finish provides you with a good grip and ensures that the binoculars can take a beating.
