Pretty simply the Monarch 5's offer the best value for money on the market. Feature rich with great glass and build quality, hardly surprizing from Nikon given they've been producing optics for over 100 years!

The Nikon Monarch 5 10x42 Binoculars combine a rubber armoured fog-proof housing with full sized objective lenses and fully multicoated optics resulting in a product that is comfortable and easy to handle and produces superior quality clear and bright images in any condition.

Featuring extra-low dispersion (ED) lens elements, the Monarch 5 10x42’s transmit bright images with enhanced colour fidelity and contrast. In addition, the Nikon 10x42’s have phase-corrected roof prisms which preserve the image quality of these high-transmission lenses. Using dielectric coatings, these prisms align incoming wavelengths of light and render well-defined edges with life like colour. The 12x42 configuration of the Monarch 5 has a 5° angle of view and can focus to within nine feet, making this set of binoculars well-suited for almost any activity.

The Nikon 10x42 Monarch’s are fully weatherproofed, with nitrogen filling and sealed O-rings making them not only waterproof, but fog proof too! The weatherproof housing of these 10x42 Monarch binoculars provides them with the build quality needed to endure a long day of observation in unforgiving conditions. Non-slip rubber armouring, twist-up eyecups, and a comfortable 15mm eye relief equip the Monarch 5 binocular with the features needed for reliable and comfortable outdoor viewing.

Take these binoculars anywhere; whether it’s out hunting in the pouring rain, or those mid winter tahr missions. Here's your chance to own a top of the line pair of binoculars at an affordable price.

Unparallelled Concealment

First Lite patterns obliterate the human shape by utilizing a proprietary mix of nature-based algorithms in coordination with disruption and focal confusion techniques. Put more simply, the relationship between colors and shapes has been specially designed to fool the brain by resembling recurring patterns found in nature. Derived from the golden ratio found throughout the natural world, both Fusion and Cipher dissolve into their surroundings unlike anything else. 

First Lite Fusion and Cipher are the most versatile patterns available to hunters because both are carefully designed to ensure concealment no matter the proximity, season, or terrain. Created using the same scientific platform and developed by Joseph Skinner, both Fusion and Cipher use proprietary pattern technology which provides equally exceptional concealment at close range and a distance--whether in the trees or on the ground.



First Lite's new Cipher pattern leverages the proven working principals of Fusion and applies them to landscape palettes with less color. Cipher emphasizes the narrower color spectrum found during the autumn and winter months in both hardwood and western environments.  With its muted coloration and Fusion-inspired DNA, Cipher is a deadly weapon in every hunter's arsenal.



Fusion has become the most trusted pattern in breakup camouflage. From dry eastern lichen covered rock and tussock land, pine, and to the West Coast bush, the Fusion pattern and color palette are engineered to excel in a vast array of landscapes. Hunters virtually disappear into their surroundings at any distance – short or long – lending confidence and near perfect stealth, whether in the trees or on an alpine ridge.

First Lite Pattern Technology


Both First Lite Fusion and Cipher incorporate large regions of light and dark colors to distort and hide the shape of the hunter's body by creating a visual which works against the signature human figure. 


After closing the distance, texture-based disruption is integral to hiding a hunter’s shape and location. A scattering of small to medium-sized elements using the pattern's color palette blend the hunter into his surroundings to ensure prey have a more difficult time visually identifying a threat. 


The large and small disruption supports the overall disruptive coloration found in First Lite patterns, which use a set of colors fine-tuned to blend in with the surroundings while contrasting against body outline.


First Lite Fusion and Cipher use color and nature-based algorithms to confuse the prey's focal vision.  The pattern's proprietary design creates a built-in sense of depth which fools the prey's depth perception. Finally, the controlled contrast and disruptive coloration of First Lite Fusion and Cipher distort prey's peripheral vision. 


First Lite patterns incorporate proprietary crackleture which further contrasts against a hunter's body signature. This innovative feature provides the next level of versatility and effectiveness not matched by any other pattern.
