With a shockproof rubber exterior these Barska binoculars are designed to withstand the most extreme of weather conditions. This new binocular design is part of the Barska Battalion series of unique marine / military optics.

The new compass in these 8×30 military binocular is designed for use in the northern hemisphere but is available in a southern hemisphere model. This new compass feature is ideal for marine and scouting new terrain. The intergraded compass features a new illuminated red light for viewing the internal compass in low light conditions. An observer can be hidden away in the shade, totally concealed from its distant target and still have the ability to use the compass. When the binocular is in direct light the external illuminator can gather that light to illuminate the compass with out the use of the battery powered red light illuminator.

The new range finding reticle in the 8×30 Battalion tactical binoculars is based on traditional military stands of determining the distance of an object or target. To use this reticle to find the distance of an object from the user one will need to estimate the height or width of the distant object. Then the user will need to measure how many lines the object encompasses when viewing the object with the binoculars reticle. A user can then take this information and plug it into a scale to find the estimated range. This method of range estimating can be used for target shooting, boating and surveying.
