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.

No pixels.  No trees.  Designed exclusively for First Lite, Fusion is a proprietary mix of shapes and colors designed to obliterate the human shape. Fusion dissolves into it’s surroundings unlike anything else.  From 2 to 2000 yards, Fusion excels by removing the characteristic outlines of the hunter through a powerful set of features.  Fusion employs both macro and micro disruption as well as finely tuned distortions. These features are placed using nature-based algorithms derived from the golden ratio found throughout the natural world. Simply put, the relationship between color and shape is specifically designed to fool the brain and resemble recurring patterns found in nature.  Unique to Fusion, the signature feature of this camouflage is its “crackalature”.  Using light and dark shapes that weave throughout the pattern, the crackalature aspect further distorts the hunter’s signature shape, avoiding isoluminance (color blobbing). The powerful features of Fusion combine to ensure concealment at any distance.

This pattern was designed to be the most versatile pattern commercially available. It hides the hunter by aggressively scattering body shape signature on multiple levels, blending in to surroundings with innovative texture disruption and coloration, confusing depth perception and focus, and features a unique crackleture pattern that is at home in a wide range of environments. It excels close and far, in the trees and on the ground.


  • Large Shape Disruption (nature-based algorithms)
  • Small-Medium Texture Disruption (nature-based algorithms)
  • Disruptive Coloration (with a carefully curated pallet of nine colors)
  • Focal and Depth Confusion (both focal and peripheral vision is greatly affected)
  • Light and Dark Crackleture (further distorts the subjects overall body shape)
Another special feature of this pattern is its inherent ability to function in just about any environment AND transition between them extremely well. It was designed this way to enable and free the hunter to successfully operate in a wider variety of environments WITHOUT a change in camo.


The large shape disruption in this pattern distorts and hides the hunters' body shape by incorporating large regions of light and dark colors that work against the signature human figure.


When closer to your prey, texture based disruption is integral to hiding your shape and location. A scattering of small to medium-sized elements using the pattern’s color palette effectively blend the hunter in to their surroundings and ensure that alerted prey has a more difficult time identifying anything.


Large and small disruption supports the overall disruptive coloration found in this pattern. This advanced pattern uses a fine-tuned set of nine colors to both contrast against body outline and blend with the surroundings.


By carefully using color and algorithms based on nature, the prey’s focal vision is confused. Depth perception is affected with the use of color and the built-in sense of depth. Finally, peripheral vision of the prey is confused by the controlled contrast and disruptive coloration.


Unique to this pattern, crackleture offers yet another level of versatility and effectiveness by further distorting the hunter’s shape.
