Professional-Grade Optics in Nocs Provisions’ Proven Build and Look: Durable, Waterproof, and Ready for the Journey
Available in 8×42 and 10×42 models and offering a massive field of view, the Pro Issue Waterproof binocular conveys the proven build and feel of Nocs’ original Standard Issue binoculars yet built around pro-class optics designed to rival binoculars costing 2x to 3x more.
The value is the result of a ground up design in partnership with Nocs’ manufacturer to leverage knowledge and streamline efficiencies. By considering the entire manufacturing process and target specification, the brand was able to eliminate redundancy and deliver top quality optics, with the lens grouping, focusing system, and exterior housing working together to produce a cohesive optical system with all components working in harmony.
“The Pro Issue is a direct result of customers asking for a larger format version of our original binoculars, and our goal was to ensure that the new model offers extremely high-quality optics while maintaining the durability, ruggedness and grip that our customers love,” said Nocs Founder and CEO, Chris McKleroy. “From lifeguards coast to coast and the forest service in between, the Pro Issue was developed to meet professional needs for optics in the field, resulting in a supreme set for birding or wildlife viewing, dawn, dusk, or under the moon; no matter the time of day.”
What sets the Pro Issue apart is the super wide field of view (429ft @ 1000yd for 8x model) that resolves all the way to the edges of the field. The Pro Issues uses phase coated BaK4 roof prisms with a fully multi coated eight piece lens assembly. The result is a super bright, wide, color correct image with high contrast and minimal chromatic aberration. Housed in a rugged, medical grade housing, the Pro Issue is fully waterproof (IPx7) and fogproof (O-ring sealed with nitrogen), with multi stop twist up eyecups and a smooth central focusing system to create a delightful viewing experience.
“At Nocs, we are all about making high quality, long lasting tools that help humans connect with their natural environment,” added McKleroy. “We started with a compact binocular product, and as we grew, we learned that our core customer base desired more from our brand. We’re super stoked to put the Pro Issue out there, with no hold barred quality optics ready for any situation.”
