Last year we started to utilize the optics from Sig Sauer and we have been very impressed by their performance. Everything they build has a superior ruggedness to it, giving you the confidence to take any of this products anywhere in the world.
The Zulu5 binoculars are no different. Featuring a lightweight, but durable magnesium alloy body, the Zulu5 will stand up to any kind of terrain and abuse you put them through. They are also covered in durable rubber armor for further protection, while also providing a nonslip grip, with or without gloves.
Their High Definition glass offers unmatched clarity and color correctness and Sig Sauer’s silver deposition phase-coated BAK4 prisms, with dielectric mirror coating, deliver unmatched resolution and image contrast. The broadband fully multi-coated lens system will give you a bright, crisp image anytime of day in any light conditions, even in low light. They are also waterproof, giving you great fog-proof performance and are rated for complete water immersion up to one meter.
The Zulu5’s have a smooth center focus nob, making it easy to bring that target animal into sharp focus quickly. The twist-up eyecups provide excellent eye relief and provide a custom fit for every user. The Zulu5 is tripod-compatible, has included tethered objective lens convers, a deluxe neck/ shoulder strap, lens cloth and a premium padded ballistic nylon case. The shoulder strap has quick-detach buckles, making it easy to take off so that they fit in your binocular harness.
Textured thumb grooves make the Zulu5 very comfortable to hold, which is awesome for trips where you’re going to be glassing all day. The longer you are able to stay behind your binoculars, the better you are in finding that once in a lifetime animal. The thing that I like most about the Zulus’ is that they are built to last, Sig has put a lot of effort into making all of their optics industry leaders in rugged performance. Just in case you do damage your Zulu5’s, they are covered by Sig Sauer’s Infinite Guarantee and Electronics Limited Warranty, giving you added peace of mind.
