The summer months are an excellent time to take a thoughtful approach to fall hunting gear. Often when an item breaks or is lost, we have to make a snap decision to replace it, yielding a less-than-satisfying experience. If you’re thinking about a new pair of binoculars, Nikon’s newest introduction, the ProStaff 7S, is worth a look.

I began testing Nikon binoculars about ten years ago and have found them to be an excellent combination of value and quality. You don’t have to take a second mortgage to buy them, and the quality and engineering are impressive. Here are the details.

Combining a sleek new ergonomic body design with an improved optical system, the PROSTAFF 7S is the most advanced PROSTAFF binocular model to date. Thanks to Fully Multilayer-Coated nikon1Lenses and Phase-Correction Coated Prisms, the PROSTAFF 7S delivers sharp images with superior resolution and clarity.  The PROSTAFF 7S is available in 8×42 and 10×42 magnifications, as well as more compact 8×30 and 10×30 versions. Each binocular has an easy-to-hold ergonomic design and offers the added protection of a durable rubber armored body.

With long eye-relief, the PROSTAFF 7S provides a sufficient space between the user’s eye and the binocular’s eyepiece lenses to make them comfortable for everyone, even for those wearing eyeglasses. The multi-click turn-and-slide rubber eyecups make it easy to find the correct eye positioning to see the full field of view.

PROSTAFF 7S binoculars are all nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed for waterproof/fogproof performance.
