The Alpen Optics Apex XP 10x42 ED Waterproof Binoculars combines a magnification and objective lens that is ideal for all outdoor activities in any weather condition.

Apex XP binoculars deliver vibrant images rich in detail even in low light conditions through a combination of high-resolution ED (extra-low dispersion) glass that enhances luminosity and contrast, superior BaK4 prisms, unique PXA phase coating and HR metallic coatings. Each rugged Apex XP binocular is waterproof for all-weather performance and purged with nitrogen gas to create an internal environment that is impervious to fogging.
