Nocs Provisions Introduces its Field Issue Waterproof Binocular to Create a Range of Durable Optics Perfect for Explorers and Outdoor Adventures. This Equipment Combines Professional-Level Technology With a Convenient, Waterproof Design.

Nocs Provisions, the producer of binoculars and accessories designed for adventurers, has released the Field Issue 32mm model – their newest waterproof, durable product for outdoor activities. This joins the brand’s expanding line of adventure tools.

The Field Issue 8×32 – Nocs Provisions from Nocs Provisions offers a combination of features that rivals its Pro Issue model, which is known for its superior optics. But even better, it still has the same compact ruggedness and ergonomic design as their much-loved Standard Issue waterproof binoculars.

The Field Issue is the ultimate lightweight binocular, made to be used in any environment and stand out with its distinctive, nature-inspired design. Equipped with HiFi Fully Multi Coated Lenses and a BaK4 Prism, it offers a wide and bright field of view from edge to edge. The oversized focus wheel allows for precise visual adjustments from 9.3ft to infinity. Waterproof and fogproof (IPX7 rating), the Field Issue can be submerged up to three feet deep and is filled with nitrogen to prevent internal condensation.

Nocs’ Rugged Wave Grip housing is built to go above and beyond to protect the optics, and is crafted from a medical-grade, ultra-rugged thermoplastic frame, providing super durability and drop resistance while keeping the Field Issue’s total weight at a mere 16.7 oz (473g). Additionally, the eyecup assembly allows for a perfect fit on almost every face: with or without glasses, the multi-stop twist up eyecup mechanism provides three distinct positions to optimize viewing.

“We designed the Field Issue for all-day glassing missions and foot powered travel to remote locations, where every ounce makes a difference, and have integrated much of the optical tech and features from our top-of-the-line Pro Issue,” said Chris McKleroy, Nocs Provisions Founder and CEO. “The Field Issue truly is an evolution, and offers huge value for outdoor enthusiasts and a perfect choice for hiking, camping, birdwatching, surfing, road trips – you name it.”

The new Field Issue is available today at and in specialty retailers, and comes in two sizes and six new colorways: 8×32 in Coral Red, Corsican Blue, and Deep Slate and 10×32 in Bone Gray, Paydirt Brown, and Ponderosa Green. The 8x magnification allows for a wider field of view, while the 10x is for those wanting to narrow in on the finer details.

Like all Nocs products, the Field Issue waterproof binocular was designed to be taken along for the ride, and is covered by the brand’s “No Matter What” lifetime warranty.

Core Features, Nocs Provisions Field Issue Binocular:

  • Oversized Focus Wheel: Designed from the ground up for ultra smooth, ultra precise focusing. By fine tuning the wheel resistance and leverage ratio of the central focusing mechanism, the Field Issue allows for exacting visual adjustments from 9.3ft to infinity.
  • HiFi Fully Multi Coated Lens Array: Rich Color Representation. With a unique lens coating formula designed for an exceptional light transmittance rate for its compact size, the Field Issue provides a rich color reproduction for bright, sharp views from edge to edge of the wide field of view.
  • Lightweight Frame: Goes The Distance. Weighing in at only 11.8oz or 334 grams, the Field Issue uses a medical grade, ultra rugged thermoplastic frame to house the optical system. We designed this for all-day glassing missions and foot powered travel to remote locations, where every ounce makes a difference.
  • Waterproof + Fogproof: Lab Tested and Rated. Like the rest of our binocular line, the Field Issue is lab rated IPX7, meaning it can take a smattering of dust, water, and humidity and continue to perform. Submersible in up to three feet of water and nitrogen sealed to prevent internal condensation, these can be brought along for any adventure.
  • Rugged Wave Grip: Refined Feel and Drop Tested. No slip in the palm, engineered to protect the optics, this evolved design provides a comfortable feel in hand and a build that dissipates impact forces on the optical system.
  • Multi Stop Twist Up Eyecups: See It All. The eyecup assembly of the Field Issue allows for a perfect fit on every face. With or without glasses, the multi stop twist up eyecup mechanism provides three distinct positions to optimize viewing for all.
