Nocs Highlights

No-Matter-What Lifetime Warranty

Phase Coated Prism

Designed for Max Grip And Protection

Waterproof + Fogproof


Ultra Wide Field of View

A 429 foot field of view (8x @1000yds) that is distortion free across the field. This provides a new level of peripheral vision to a binocular in this class. It’s as if the binocular housing simply disappears from sight while in use.

Phase Coated BaK4 Prism

Multilayer phase-correction coatings applied to the prism surfaces ensure accurate image contrast and avoid unwanted interference effects. While all our optics have fully multi coated lenses, the Pro Issue extends these coatings to the prisms in order to maximize brightness and clarity from edge to edge.

Fully Multi Coated Lens Array

Every surface of every piece of glass inside has multiple coatings of broadband anti-reflective coating. This is key to providing a crisp and color correct image, no matter the time of day… or night.

Waterproof + Fogproof

Submersible in up to three feet of water and nitrogen sealed to prevent internal condensation. There’s no reason to leave them at home - clean them off without worry.

Tight Close Focus

With a close focus of less than 2M (6ft.), these binoculars fill the field with the closest details you see, whether a butterfly or a bee in a nearby tree. Not to mention, these are excellent for amateur astronomy, if you were wondering about that.

Rugged Natural Grip

Designed to fit in your palm and to be held seamlessly without thought or worry. The ergonomic ribbed housing is designed to protect the product. Did we mention our no-fault No Matter What Lifetime Warranty?

Excellent Binoculars

The optics are amazing. I own Swarovski, Leicas, and Zeiss binoculars, and these are on par. I love the style. I have several pairs of the small ones, I’ve given as gifts.

Excellent Binoculars

The Pro’s edged out the standard version with a bit more light-gathering ability and color rendition (the ability to produce true hues). Light yet sturdy and well balanced in the hand. That doesn’t diminish the standard version at all, especially given it’s $95 cost. Both compete with brands many time their price.

no complaints here

Though this is my first pair, the research I've done suggests that these are the best bang for your buck binoculars out there. I have 8x25s and now 10x42s. The 8x25s are great, but really can't compete with the new Pro model. Obviously the Pros are are bigger and heavier but what is gained in magnification and field of view ... they're a no brainer. My ONLY gripe is that the case the Pros comes with is a piece of junk as are the standard straps. That's fine. Nocs sells great straps on I'm rockin one of those. Maybe they'll start making cases as well? I'd buy if they did. Because I don't think the current standard case will last too many suitcase travel trips. I feel like I'm being nit picky here. The nocs are from the gods and that's all that matters.

My second pair of NOC’s. Love them

My experience has been great. I have owned a 8x25 which was awesome. I saw you all came out with the larger 10x42 pro issue. After using them for a couple week I love them and are worth every penny. Though larger. The quality of the glass with being water proof exceeds the quality of much more expensive brand names and remain practical and portable. I will always be a NOC’s fan.
