Overview and Features
Incredibly versatile, these binoculars can perform in any type of light or weather condition. Often, fog and high humidity conditions can majorly impact a binocular’s performance.
These binoculars feature lenses that are fog-proof, waterproof and they also offer excellent shock absorption. The magnesium frame complete with rubber armor gives these binoculars the type of durability they need in the backcountry
The barrels are O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged to protect the optics from harsh weather conditions. Even in high humidity conditions, the durable construction will ensure that these binoculars continue to display clear, bright images.
Variable Speed Focus System
The innovative variable speed focus system provides focus from six feet to infinity using just one turn of the wheel, which is pretty impressive. This feature will come in handy when you’re trying to track game on the run.
In fact, many hunters have reported that the Epoch binoculars can easily outperform the Zeiss Victory HT hunting binoculars, the top competing model.
This feature blows the standard focus system out of the water.
The twist up, multi-step rubber eyecups work by locking in place allowing you to optimize every view angle.
The patented eye relief system adjusts in tiers. The cups lock in order to hold any position that suits the user.
The lenses produce a wide field of view at one thousand yards, which is standard for the price.
Offering 10.5x magnification, these binoculars allow you to capture every detail. They’re also lightweight and durable and can be used for a wide range of applications including birding, sporting events, hunting, and more.
The six feet minimum focus is nothing short of impressive and it’s perfect for hunts in brush and cluttered terrain.

The magnesium and rubber armored housing makes these binoculars nearly indestructible. Remember, these are specifically designed with the hunter in mind. They can handle plenty of use and abuse and will keep on providing a solid performance. Additionally, the weatherproof construction will allow you to use these binoculars in any type of weather condition, plus they can handle being fully submerged.
These binoculars are equipped with SF glass roof prisms. The AL HR reflective coatings are designed to improve color and light providing the best clarity, improved sharpness and the brightest images possible. These phase corrected roof prisms transmit brighter images that offer a solid performance and are usually found on many of the leading models on the market.
So, what does the manufacturer mean by phase corrected prisms? These prisms are highly reflective and allow the glass prisms to transmit color evenly. And the result? Images bursting with vivid color and impressive detail.
Since the lenses are fully multi-coated, you can expect minimized reflections and maximized contrast.
The binoculars come with a tripod adapter that allows you to securely mount a monopod, window mount, or tripod. This feature is a huge plus when you’re out on a western hunt or for activities such as birdwatching.
Care and Maintenance
Unlike birding binoculars, these binoculars don’t require so much care and maintenance, however, proper lens care is necessary and often part of binocular basics. If you want your binoculars to perform at their best, the lenses must be carefully cleaned after each use. To do, use the included cleaning cloth. Do not use terrycloth, cotton, or any other type of unapproved cloth because it can cause damage to the protective lens coatings.
