The Hawke 8×42 Frontier ED X Binoculars feature phase-corrected and dielectric-coated BAK4 roof prisms with anti-reflection fully multi-coated extra-low-dispersion (ED) objective lenses that work together to produce a versatile and capable optic with bright and clear high-contrast images and accurate color rendition across their spacious and generous field of view.
Coupled with the optical features are compact 32mm diameter objectives that straddle the line between compact and full sized to give you the performance you need without the bulk that might weigh you down as you hike the trail, climb to an observation deck, or just sightsee around the city.

Complementing the optical performance are construction details that make the Hawke 8×42 Frontier ED X Binoculars durable and comfortable to use. The lightweight and durable magnesium-alloy chassis is protected by a green rubberized armor that is textured for a nonslip grip. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature or environmental conditions.
A right-eye diopter adjustment and twist-up eyecups allow the binocular to be customized to most people’s needs and can be comfortably used with or without eyewear. Protecting the objectives and eyepieces are tethered caps that come off fast for easy reaction to glassing opportunities without the possibility of losing them.
From the trail to the range to the stadium—wherever you go, the Frontier ED X binoculars are sure to be your constant companion to see what you need to see.
