  • 96%+ Light Transmission - The longer the hide lasts, the higher the chances of success. Sit into the night for another Waidmannsheil! Steiner's most advanced technology shatters the darkness with incredibly bright images - seize the opportunities other hunters miss!
  • Sports-Auto-Focus - The only porro night glass of this quality with the advantage of "infinite" sharpness (from 20 m to infinity). Always precise and razor-sharp images without refocusing for clear contours even when darkness sets in.
  • Nano-Protection - Gives the glass a reliably clear view at all times with the hydrophobic surface finish. This dirt- and water-repellent coating on the lenses lets rain or snow roll off and makes cleaning easier.
  • XL-field of view - Those who see more have a clear advantage! Keep track and let yourself be treated to a huge field of view from 135 m no longer miss anything.
  • Nitrogen pressure filling - fogging up or the formation of condensation inside the binoculars is completely impossible with this high-tech solution from STEINER. Thanks to the 2-way valve technology, the binoculars can be maintained at any time, even after many years.
  • Absolute clarity - even at night, male or female? You can never be sure without a Steiner Nighthunter. The Porro Night Scope provides three-dimensional depth perception to quickly locate and assess your target. With Steiner's patented Diamond Night Coating, you get excellent clarity and contrast at dawn and dusk, giving you those valuable extra minutes on the hunt.
  • ClicLoc -  Always lets the binoculars sit firmly in the strap, but can also be detached and attached again in a matter of seconds with a flick of the wrist.
  • High quality accessories - With bag, ClicLoc -Neoprene carrying strap, rain cover and lens protection caps.
  • Legendary robustness - thanks to the durable Makrolon housing made of polycarbonate that withstands impacts of up to 11G, floating prism bearing with flexible silicone for shock absorption, water pressure tightness up to 5 m, nitrogen pressure filling to prevent fogging, temperature range from -40 to +80 °C and protective, hydrophobic STEINER Nano-Protection , which repels water, dirt, dust and snow and is easy to clean.
  • ErgoFlex - Eyecups It is cumbersome to hold the binoculars and at the same time block the draft or the sun's rays with your hand. Side light can affect your vision at any time of the day. With the patented Steiner ErgoFlex eyecups, you can always benefit from the outstanding technology of the Nighthunter and have a crystal-clear image in every situation.
  • LumiClip - Simple but brilliant. For safe and silent grip in the dark.
