Alpen Wings binocular series delivers an ergonomic lightweight design with super bright, sharp optical performance. The open hinge design provides comfortable viewing in two optical designs — ED “extra low dispersion” and non-ED versions.
ED optics provide the very best in color fidelity and contrast in all light conditions. With Alpen’s fully multi-coated, PXA phase correction coating, and silver metallic prism coating the Wings ED binocular series delivers outstanding performance that provides superior viewing to satisfy even the most serious binocular user.
The non-ED Wings models also feature fully multi-coated, PXA phase correction coating, and silver metalic prism coating for optical performance at a price point that is affordable while delivering a brilliant, crisp image.
Both series are fully waterproof, fogproof and backed by Alpen’s No-Fault, No-Problem Lifetime Warranty. Wings binoculars have long eye relief, great for eyeglass wearers, and twist up eye cups provide comfortable viewing with or without glasses.
