Nikon 8x42 ProStaff P3  Binoculars (Black) roof prism , fully multicoated waterproof , bak-4


With wide lenses for a bright image and the power to make distant details eight times bigger, the Nikon PROSTAFF P3 8x42 Binoculars are a great choice for birding, sightseeing, sporting events and concerts, and much more. The 8x magnification shows you details at a distance but is easier to hold steady than more powerful binoculars, and the generous 42mm lenses admit ample light for a bright image, even at dusk and dawn. The wide field of view reveals a large stretch of the horizon, so you can take in the big picture or quickly find the object you need to see. The PROSTAFF P3s are waterproof, fogproof, and drop-resistant, so you can carry them confidently on your outdoor adventures.

Renowned Nikon Optics

PROSTAFF P3 binoculars incorporate superior Nikon optics and lens coatings for a high-quality viewing experience.

Outstanding Clarity

Nikon's multilayer lens coatings cut glare and reflection for sharper, clearer views.

Vibrant Colors

A highly reflective silver-alloy coating is applied on the mirror surfaces of the prism so more of the visible spectrum reaches your eyes.

Waterproof Down to 3.3'

Although they're not intended for underwater use, the PROSTAFF P3 binoculars can safely be used around splashing water or in inclement weather.

Eco-Friendly Glass

The glass used in PROSTAFF P3 binoculars is lead-free and arsenic-free. Better for you. Better for the environment.

Lenses That Won't Fog

The PROSTAFF P3 is filled with bone-dry nitrogen gas, so even going from a warm car to the cold winter air won't fog the lenses.

Turn-and-Slide Eyecups

Retract them for use with eyeglasses. Extend them to your ideal position for comfortable naked-eye viewing.

Long Eye Relief

20.2mm of eye relief ensures everyone can find a clear, comfortable viewing position, with or without eyeglasses.


The green rubber-armored body provides non-slip grip and protection from the occasional drop or bump.


The lightweight body of the PROSTAFF P3 binoculars features strong fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin.
