The Alpen Optics Apex XP 8x56 ED Waterproof Binoculars is the go-to optic for all outdoor activities in any weather condition. Its 8x power brings your subject in close for detailed observation while presenting you an ultra-wide exit pupil and long eye relief.

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.


  • Optimized for low-light use with an exceptional exit pupil and large objectives
  • Moderate 8x power magnifies the view while presenting a wide exit pupil and long eye relief to greatly improve the user's experience
  • Massive 56mm objective lenses deliver bright views, even in challenging light conditions such as pre-dawn and late dusk hours
  • Compact roof prism design allows for thinner optical tubes versus the more common Porro prism design, resulting in an easier-to-hold form factor, even with the large objectives
  • BAK4 prisms deliver a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • PXA phase correcting prism coatings improve contrast and clarity
  • Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass objective lenses correct chromatic aberrations and fringing to deliver bright and clear high-contrast and high-resolution views with accurate color representation
  • HR metallic prism coatings on internal reflective surfaces to limit light loss and maximize light transmission through the prism system
  • Anti-reflection full multicoatings improve light transmission, color rendition, and contrast
  • 305' field of view at 1000 yards
