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.

A refined feel in hand, with a smooth central focus knob, easy to dial in diopter adjustment, and a single hinge adjustment that fits all faces. Works for glasses wearers and those without using our multi step twist up eyecups.

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.

Just tried Nocs for the first time

I purchased these binoculars in order to have a spare pair. I conduct a lot of bird walks for the public and for students, and I wanted to have an extra pair on hand for someone who didn't bring any or who had a terrible pair. I always want people who are just learning to watch birds to have the best possible experience seeing them that first time. I saw these either through a Facebook ad or an ad associated with my iPhone's Google home page. In any case, the reviews seemed solid, and the price was right, so I took a chance and bought a pair. They were delivered in just a day or two. I have used them often, and I have given them to my students to use and to members of the public on my bird walks, and we all have high praise for the quality of the binocular construction, and, especially, the very bright image quality (excellent edge to edge detail) and generous field of view. I always tell people that they should spend as much as they can afford on their binoculars, because higher price actually does mean higher quality in binoculars. Nocs, with their truly excellent quality and warranty, shifts that old paradigm completely. And that is a very good thing for those really do want to watch birds seriously, but who cannot afford the more expensive optics. These binoculars are not as good as the most expensive binoculars, but they are much, much better than I expected for the price point. On top of that, I greatly appreciate Nocs commitment to protecting the environment with every pair that they sell.

Great so far!

Waiting for hunting season to see how these perform under those conditions, but look great so far.
