Viking Kestrel ED 8x42 Binoculars

The Viking Kestrel binoculars are a set of mid-range models that we love so much, we've made them our number one Best Buy. Offering the same quality as many more expensive binoculars, they offer excellent value for money, as well as high image clarity and durable, weatherproof design.

Picture-perfect clarity

The Viking Kestrel binoculars provide superb clarity. With Extra Low Dispersion lenses, colour fringe is removed to provide a clearer, brighter image. This gives them a considerable edge over binoculars with standard lenses, and makes them the ideal choice for birdwatchers. What’s more, by letting in more light than standard lenses, the Kestrel binoculars are suitable for use in all light conditions. They even come with twist-down eyecups, meaning you can still use them while wearing your glasses.

Ideal for all weathers

As any British birdwatcher will be well aware, the weather in this country is liable to change at the drop of a hat. Luckily, these Viking Kestrel binoculars are well prepared for anything the weather might throw at you. Not only are they fully waterproof, but they are also rubber-armoured, making them easier to grip and less likely to be damaged if dropped. Lastly, they are nitrogen-filled to prevent fogging.

Viking binoculars with carry case
Easily portable

For those who prefer to use their binoculars without a tripod, these 8x42 binoculars are the perfect choice. With an 8.1-degree field of vision, it is ideal for comfortable handheld viewing, comfortable to hold and easier to hold steady than 10x binoculars can be. For users on the go, this makes these compact binoculars a superb choice.

Why Should You Buy These Binoculars?

The Viking Kestrel 8x42 binoculars are easily one of the best models around, with rugged design and high image clarity for a superior user experience. Perfect for birdwatchers, their easy portability makes them a great pick for hikers and campers, too.

Very pleased with product and LiGo delivery

LiGo did what they said they would in a timely fashion.
Using binoculars on trip around Scotland, bright view and easy set up . Was concerned might be a little heavy, they aren't so very pleased with purchase.

Very happy

My brother has a Swarovski pair at four times the price and he says there’s not a huge difference in capability.

Very Happy Recipient

Bought as a birthday present and he was absolutely delighted with them. Would certainly recommend.

Overall, very good.

Bought these as an additional pair of bins, intended to keep in the car for opportunist use.
Having now had chance to use them on several occasions, in weather ranging from bright sun to overcast and drizzling, and I am pretty impressed. The optics perform better than my expectations.
Construction seems good and solid, but I am less impressed with the case, which seems to be excessively tight to me. Once I fitted the strap, it became a real struggle to get them in and out with ease.
Overall though, a good purchase.

Excellent Service

Very good service.
