For years, Nikon's "Action" series of binoculars brought Nikon's legendary optical quality to savvy consumers at an attractive price point. Now Nikon's Aculon line carries on that fine tradition. Designed to give uncompromising performance, the Aculon series makes it possible for you to own a fine piece of optical craftsmanship without giving your credit card a workout.
These Aculon A211 8 x 42 binoculars are a fine example of the line's value-oriented approach. Lightweight and versatile, they feature Porro-prisms and Nikon's exclusive lead-free, arsenic-free Eco-Glass™. A wide 420-foot field of view at 1000 yards means you'll be able to follow fast-moving action, and the 42mm objective lenses gather a healthy amount of light, so you can be comfortable using these binoculars from sunup to sundown.
