Nighthunter XP 10x42 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Optics for the $ Since I primarily bow hunt in the western US. I was interested in finding a high end optics with light weight considerations. Although, these are not the lightest weight, their optical performance far out weighs the extra ounces. They perform great in the field for stalks and are not too bulky. I am very please with the product and would consider other Steiner products for their rugged design. The Clicloc is a quick release mechanism that attaches the binocular to a hub or strap. It is more robust than I originally thought. Since I could not find any Clicloc inserts on-line, I called customer service in order receive extra Clicloc connections. You will need these, if you are planning to attach to a harness or binohub. Customer service is great about sending the Clicloc inserts.
