Rainier 8x42mm ED HD Waterproof Binoculars by Alpen Optics

Introducing the Alpen Rainier 8x42mm ED HD Binoculars, where optical excellence knows no bounds. Every Rainier binocular model redefines the standards of visual perfection.

Employing our proprietary UBX multi-layer coating, we ensure optimal light transmission across all optical elements.

Elevating the experience, the generously-sized BAK-4 prisms come enhanced with over 60 layers of Alpen's advanced SHR metallic and PXA phase coatings, resulting in unparalleled brilliance, precision, and color accuracy.

Complemented by generously proportioned lens components throughout the optical system, these binoculars grant an expanded field of view and ample eye relief, making your viewing experience effortless and immersive.



  • 8x Magnification and 42mm Objective Lenses: This combination provides a balance between magnification and light-gathering ability. It offers a clear and detailed view of distant objects while allowing in ample light for a brighter image, making it suitable for a wide range of outdoor activities like birdwatching and hiking.
  • HD – High Definition and ED – Extra Low Dispersion Optical System: These optical enhancements work together to produce sharp, vibrant, and color-accurate images. HD technology reduces chromatic aberration, ensuring colors are true to life, while ED optics further minimize distortion, making it easier to distinguish fine details.
  • Waterproof: Waterproofing ensures that these binoculars can withstand exposure to rain and moisture. This feature is particularly valuable when using them in unpredictable weather conditions, such as during outdoor adventures or wildlife observation near water sources.
  • UBX Fully, Multi-Coated, SHR Metallic Coated, and PXA Phase Coating: These coatings work in synergy to maximize light transmission and minimize reflections, providing a bright and clear image even in challenging lighting conditions. This feature is especially useful in low-light situations like dawn or dusk.
  • A-lock Diopter System: The A-lock diopter system allows for precise and secure adjustments to compensate for differences in vision between your eyes. This ensures that you can achieve a perfectly balanced focus, making these binoculars user-friendly and accommodating for various users.
  • BAK4 Optics: BAK4 prisms are known for their superior light transmission and sharp image quality. This feature ensures that you get the best possible image clarity and brightness, making these binoculars highly effective for observing distant objects.
  • Long Eye Relief: Long Eye Relief is especially beneficial for eyeglass wearers or individuals who need a little extra space between their eyes and the eyepiece. It allows for comfortable extended viewing without straining your eyes or interfering with your glasses.
