Vanguard

The Vanguard Spirit ED 8x36 Binocular is a light roof prism model with ED glass lenses that are fully multicoated. The rubber armored housing comes in at an impressive ~1.3 lb, but doesn't skimp at all upon the optics.  This is the choice for someone who values low weight and high optical quality over a more metal-based housing which weighs more but can be knocked around a bit.

Unlike a hunter's binocular, Vanguard has given the Spirit multicoatings which target the green color spectrum, for enhanced nature observation.  The waterproof and fogproof Spirit has moisture-dispersing external coatings which help to shed precipitation quickly.

As an 8x36 model, this rather compact Spirit binocular provides a comfortable combination of 8x magnification, 7° field of view and 17mm of eye relief.  It makes keeping a subject in the center of the binocular rather easy, and is a good choice for sporting events as well because of its pronounced depth of field.

  • Fully multicoated ED glass lenses with Emerald coatings to render full spectrum of color within green tones (essential for nature observation)
  • HydroGuard external hydrophobic coating upon objectives allows easier cleaning, dust/dirt resistance, and better observation in wet weather conditions
  • V-Max Silver coating upon P2 phase-coated BaK4 prisms for high reflectivity
  • Twist-up eyecups simplify sharing unit
  • Rubber-armored light weight housing
