Designed to meet the demands of the most demanding hunter and priced to accommodate most pockets, I guarantee there’s a pair of Steiners ideally suited to your needs. Renowned for their robust, almost indestructible qualities, these German optics are rapidly gaining a serious professional and amateur following here in the UK, the broad spectrum of the Steiner range allowing even the most threadbare wallet access to at least one pair.
Whether it’s the entry level Safari Pro 8x22 for £85 all the way to the range topping £1,140 10x44 Nighthunter XP’s, you’re getting yourself a more than useful pair of binoculars. For me it’s the mid-level Ranger Pro’s in 10x42 that’ll set you back around £420. Lightweight and compact these roof-prism binoculars give you fast focus, a wide field of view, excellent contrast, good low level light capabilities, and what Steiner call their ClicLoc belt release system.
A nitrogen pressure system and water pressure proofing means that in the unlikely event that you lose grip of the non-slip rubber outer coating they’ll happily survive up to a three meter immersion in water, something I’ve purposely proved during some seriously inhospitable treatment in the Bavarian Alps.
