Steiner Long-Range Tactical Binocular

Steiner Long-Range Tactical Binocular
Legendary Binocular Receives Ultimate Armor Upgrade

Moorestown, NJ — Nearly 30 years ago, Steiner introduced a practical binocular — the 15x80mm Military — to oversee geographical and political borders in even the darkest moments of dawn and twilight. Not long thereafter, that very binocular would revolutionize the way countries looked at their borders, and even more importantly, the way their militaries would fight wars.

Now almost three decades later, the legendary binoculars that have become the benchmark for long-range observation, target acquisition, and surveillance for all five branches of the U.S. Armed Services, numerous elite American government agencies, and countless state and local law enforcement agencies have received several important upgrades to make them the most robust optical instruments in the arsenal to protect our freedoms.

With their huge objective lenses and Porro-prism construction, the 15x80mm Military binocular and the more powerful 20x80 Military have become the easily recognizable staple of both government operators and those who portray them on the silver screen. From the real-world hands of a lance corporal forward observer in the Persian Gulf, to the fictional grip of Lord Helmet as he was about to "comb the desert," to government agents pursuing comic-book heroes at your local cinema, Steiner's long-hinge Military binoculars have been making a difference.


Now, the mil-spec ISO 9001/2008 tested and approved 15x80 and 20x80 Military and Commander Military (compass equipped) binoculars have been upgraded with a new NBR (nitrile butadiene rubber) armor coating that is virtually impervious to any invasive compound it may encounter. Furthermore, the binoculars in this line are outfitted with a pair of NPR flip-off covers that protect the objective lenses during periods of inactivity. Designed to be the most rugged, strongest military optical instrument ever made, these tough binoculars are also available to folks without a military ID.


While falling off a moving Humvee, surviving sandstorms, and daily front-line use are what Steiner designed and built these binoculars to endure, everyday consumers are finding that these binoculars easily bring objects a mile distant to what seems as near as 100 yards. And tipping the scales at less than 60 ounces, they find natural balance between stability and ease of manual holding.

Headquartered in Germany, Steiner has been acknowledged as a leader in the manufacturing of quality binoculars since 1947. In addition to the outdoor, hunting and marine markets, Steiner provides products to military and law enforcement worldwide. Allied forces around the world, including the U.S. Army and countless law enforcement agencies, have made Steiner their binocular of choice.
