Apex 8x42mm Waterproof Binoculars by Alpen Optics

Experience the world through the lens of Alpen Apex 8x42mm Binoculars. These binoculars redefine low light observation, merging BaK4 prisms with exclusive PXA phase and HR metallic coatings.

This optical synergy enhances light transmission, resulting in vivid, lifelike imagery with remarkable color fidelity and sharp precision even in dim environments.

Crafted for every condition, all Apex binoculars are waterproof, ensuring unfaltering performance regardless of the weather.

Nitrogen purging prevents internal fogging, safeguarding against debris intrusion. The sleek roof prism design, coupled with resilient rubber armoring, offers not only durability but also a comfortable grasp.

Elevating comfort, the binoculars feature twist-up eyecups and ample eye relief—ideal for eyeglass wearers. A deluxe travel case secures your investment on the move, while a rubber rain guard provides extra protection against the elements.



  • 8x Magnification: This feature means that the binoculars can magnify an object 8 times its original size. This level of magnification strikes a good balance between bringing distant objects closer while still maintaining a relatively steady image. It's particularly useful for a wide range of outdoor activities such as birdwatching, hiking, or attending sporting events.
  • 42mm Objective Lenses: The size of the objective lenses determines how much light the binoculars can gather. Larger objective lenses like these 42mm ones allow more light to enter the binoculars, resulting in brighter and clearer images, especially in low-light conditions such as dawn, dusk, or overcast days.
  • Waterproof: Waterproofing is essential for binoculars used in outdoor environments where they might be exposed to rain, moisture, or wet conditions. The waterproof feature ensures that the binoculars remain functional even when exposed to rain or splashes of water, making them more durable and reliable in various weather conditions.
  • Fogproof: achieved through the use of nitrogen or other inert gases to prevent internal fogging of the binoculars when there are rapid temperature changes or humidity variations. This is crucial for maintaining clear visibility, especially when moving from a cold to a warm environment or vice versa.
  • BAK4 Optics: BAK4 is a type of glass with a high refractive index, which contributes to better light transmission and sharper image quality. Binoculars with BAK4 prisms tend to produce images with less distortion and improved clarity, ensuring that you see details more accurately.
  • Long Eye Relief: Eye relief refers to the distance at which you can hold the binoculars away from your eyes while still maintaining a full field of view. A long eye relief is particularly beneficial for those who wear glasses, as it allows them to comfortably use the binoculars without removing their glasses.
  • Fully Multi-Coated: Fully multi-coated optics mean that multiple layers of anti-reflective coatings have been applied to all air-to-glass surfaces of the binoculars. This coating reduces glare and reflections, maximizes light transmission, and enhances image brightness and color fidelity. It also improves the overall image quality, especially in challenging lighting conditions.
