UHD Glass

Extra-Low Dispersion glass gives you an image with little or no chromatic fringe so the final result brings a clearer and sharper image to your eyes

ESP Dielectric Coating- Enhanced Spectral Prism Dielectric Coating

ESP Dielectric Coating is a multi layer prism coating that reflects over 99% of the light to your eyes bringing you a clear, bright image that displays accurate color reproduction.

Lightweight Magnesium Chassis

Magnesium chassis give you the strength of a metal chassis while reducing the weight as much as 35%

XPL Coating- Xtra Protective Layer coating

XPL Coating gives you an extra protection on the exterior lenses from dirt, oil and scratches

Phase Corrected prisms

Phase corrected prisms produce images that have better contrast, a higher resolution and better color reproduction

BaK4 prisms

Bak-4 glass prisms reflect more light to your eyes which will give you brighter and sharper image.

Advanced FMC

Advanced Fully Multi-Coated lenses gives you better light transmission to bring optimum brightness and true color across the entire light spectrum.

Twist Up Eyecups

Twist up eyecups with intermediate stops allow you to set the eyecups to the ideal eye relief for you eyes

    bought this product for my son’s birthday. he took it for couple of football games and just loves it. During the last game he dropped it from the bench, it tumbled through several rows and hit the bottom floor pretty hard. The bino seems out of focus zone after the impact as we had hard time tuning it back to have a sharp image again. Send it back to them hoping to get it repaired. Surprisingly got a brand new replacement in couple of days. That is a great service REALLY BEYOND MY EXPECTATION!

    As a hiker and amateur photographer I wanted to get a solid binoculars for longer time. So I tried Athlon optics and cannot say a bad word.

    The image quality is perfect, I was mainly suprised by large field of view and in most conditions didn’t notice any chromatic aberration.Regarding the body, it gives a very rigid feeling and at the same time is surprisingly ergonomic. Good grip for winter times with gloves, smooth focus knob rotation and nice feature of twist-up eye cups make observation really comfortable.

    Came with pouch, neck strap, lens covers, lens cloth, plus with product like this it’s always good to know about the lifetime warranty.

    Would certainly recommend to anybody looking for the highest quality in similar price range.

    I have an old pair of Zeiss 8×30 binoculars and wanted a new pair of 10x. Looked at many including Leopold and this pair of Athlon 10×42 binoculars is the only pair that I found that compare to Zeiss or Swarovski. Highly recommend

    Have had this pair for the last 6 months and travelled quite extensively from 14,000 foot Peru mountains, to the shores of Kauai and tiger safaris in Madya Pradesh India, Everyone ever handed these would make the immediate remark of the optics and how clear they are. Ergonomically sound and really appreciate the rotational eye lens pieces that allow a perfect fit for full viewing for different peoples preferences (like eyeglasses).

    It seems to take the dust well but unfortunately a spec got inside the optics and could not be cleared. No big deal because you had to look for it. My professional guide in Bandhogarh has them now and is going to be an even better tracker because of this equipment. So glad to be helping him and carrying the flag for this brand, as it is a rock solid binocular.

    I bought these binos a few weeks ago. I have to say this is not my 1st Athlon purchase. After doing a ton of research on every optic out there, and including the prices as well, there is no better optic on the market for the price! If you are a blue collar worker on a budget, this is the best optic for the money! I have had many Nikon’s and Vortex optics over the years and while these are reputable brands, in my opinion, Athlon is a step above. These binos are superb. Crisp, clear, and very well made. The textured gripping on them feel great in the hand. One of the best things about Athlon is their warranty. I haven’t had to send anything back yet and I hope not to, but to know that they will back their products for life is a great feeling. I have a feeling that when the word gets out about these great optics, business will be booming!
