The sensational, high-definition optics from Steiner will give you a completely new, uniquely clear view. Even under the most difficult lighting conditions, our special BAK-4 prisms and unique coating technology ensure high light transmission and therefore clear, high-contrast three-dimensional vision. Internally, the binoculars feature a stray light prevention system; a series of baffles that help add to the 95% plus peak brightness. At the same time the Commander V offers you a wide field of view for excellent vision in every situation. Night or day. In order to combine sensitive technology and extreme environmental conditions, a high-quality Makrolon® housing protects the inner workings of the Commander V. Guaranteed shock-resistant and absolutely mil spec waterproof (tested to a submersion depth of 5 meters). The rubber armoring offers a good grip, protects the binocular and prevents slipping on wet surfaces. The nitrogen pressure system completely eliminates inner fogging. Most importantly, the compass integration has been changed altogether by building the entire compass assembly into the binocular. The compass is no longer in danger of being damaged at the connection point or being sheared off. Further, the entire compass is now rubber armored! New Intelligent automatic focusing offers a depth of field from 20 yards/meters to infinity. Ergonomically shaped wrap-around eye cups with ventilated oculars for protection from side light. Reliable, extra-large high performance compass with new reticle that covers considerably less of the viewing area than prior models.
