The black 12x42 Blackhawk Binocular from Barska combines image quality and weatherproofing into a cost-friendly handheld optic. This configuration of the Blackhawk binocular features 12x magnification as well as a six-foot close focusing distance that is remarkable for a mid-range optic. The impressive close focus ability and wide apparent viewing angle make this binocular well-suited for almost any glassing task. Complementing the versatility of the Blackhawk's optics is a nitrogen-filled housing that delivers fogproof and waterproof performance. Twist-up eyecups, non-slip rubber armoring, and comfortable 17mm eye relief make the Blackhawk a full-featured binocular for novices and advanced amateurs alike.
