Steiner Ranger Xtreme 8x56 Details

With an excellent price to performance ratio, these 8x56 Steiner Ranger Xtreme binoculars were specifically designed so that they are able to deliver bright, high-quality views even in very low light conditions.

At 56mm in diameter, the lenses are larger than your standard 42mm version and thus are able to collect and let in more light. This in combination with Steiner’s fully multi-coated, High-Contrast Optical system transmits more light through the instrument with less unwanted reflections and thus produces brighter better quality views.

Another indication of their excellent low light capabilities is the very large 7mm exit pupil generated by the 8x56 combination. These large shafts of light exiting the eyepieces are able to match even the most dilated pupils and thus means your eyes are always supplied with enough light for you to make out the brightest image possible.

The tradeoff here, however, is that these larger lenses make for a slightly larger and heavier instrument and thus these are less suitable for the lightweight, minimalist hunter. Note: Using this binocular with a good binocular harness would be a good option if you do need to carry a lot of other gear like a rifle or bow and rangefinder over long distances.

Able to not only withstand but actually thrive in the toughest environments these binoculars have an advertised operational temperature range of between -15°C to +55°C and feature a nitrogen filled, fully waterproof housing to avoid fogging up in all weather conditions.

The housing itself is made from Steiner’s extremely tough Makrolon polycarbonate which can survive huge forces and impacts. Added to this is the NBR-Longlife rubber armour on the exterior surface that adds a further layer of protection, is resistant to perishing and provides a great non-slip surface even when wet.

Whilst the body is fairly large, the centrally located focus wheel is well positioned and easy to reach and turn even when using just one finger or whilst wearing thick winter gloves. This along with Steiner’s Fast Close Focus mechanism that requires less turning helps you achieve the perfect focus in less time making sure you never miss any of the action.

These, as well as many of their other great features, makes the Steiner Ranger Xtreme 8x56 binocular an ideal choice for the hunter, wildlife observer or general nature enthusiast who often operates at short-to-mid range distances in areas like dense forests or at times when the sun is just below the horizon and thus need the best possible capability in low light.

I bought these Steiner Ranger Xtreme binoculars six months ago and have used them for bird / wildlife watching especially at dawn and dusk. Let’s face it that’s when you are most likely to see wildlife. The binoculars have worked really well with good crisp viewing. I much prefer these to the smaller 30 or 42 binoculars. They are very good quality and fit well in your hands. I am struggling to see why anyone would spend and awful lot more for Zeiss or others when these binoculars perform so well.
