Sig Sauer’s heritage of designing precision-manufactured quality products predates the existence of any other optics company worldwide, and they understand the importance of quality products that you can depend on in the line of fire, on the shooting range, or on your next hunt. With the new Zulu 7 12x50mm Binoculars, they’ve continued that legacy of quality manufacturing, in a binocular that is both affordable, and designed for almost any scenario.
The Zulu 7s are a short-to-long range open-hinged binocular, that brings both the quality reputation, and the impressive clarity that comes with any Sig Sauer Electro-Optics product. Built from a durable magnesium housing with Sig’s own “Stealth ID” system, the Zulu 7s are designed with trapezoidal surfacing, to deflect and break up the light given off from the exterior of the binos. This feature is very useful for those hunting scenarios where any light bouncing off you or your gear can affect your results in the field, causing an animal to see you and run away.
These binoculars are IPX-7 rated, meaning that they’re fully waterproof in up to 1 meter of water, as well as fogproof. This feature makes them great for all kinds of inclement weather and unexpected accidents. The Zulu 7s fully utilize the HDX optical system, which combines both the Extra-low dispersion glass and high-light transmittance glass, to produce maximum results in color, image brightness, and overall clarity. The lenses featured on this pair of binos are also coated with both LensArmor and LensShield, which protect the glass from unwanted abrasions, coatings, and overall gunk, as well as Spectracoat, which allows for superior light transmission across the entire color spectrum. The eyecups featured on the Zulu 7 are multi-positional and twist up or down to help with eye relief and allow a custom fit for every user, making these a great buy for anyone from the amateur outdoorsman, all the way to the seasoned hunter. The Zulu 7s come in multiple magnification ranges which include the 8x42mm model, the 10x42mm model, and the 12x50mm model, all of which include the HDX system. With either choice of model, you have a versatile set of binoculars that are useful for almost any hunting or birdwatching scenarios. The most important feature of any optic that you buy these days is the price, and the Zulu 7s have taken that out of the equation by bringing a full-featured binocular to the market at a very affordable price. These binoculars also feature the Sig Sauer Electro-Optic Infinite Guarantee, meaning that no matter the reason, whose fault it was, or where you purchased it, they will repair, or replace your product, no matter what. When it comes to choosing a company known for manufacturing quality and a reputation you can trust, Sig Sauer Electro-Optics is an obvious candidate, and with the feature packed Zulu 7s, you have an optics solution in which you can put your trust.
