Viking are known for the high quality of their lenses, and the Badger range is no exception.

Spectacle-wearers need not worry, as the Viking Badger's twist-down eyecups mean you can use these binoculars without having to take your glasses off. The rubber armour also protects the binoculars from damage should you drop them or while they are in transit. What’s more, all Viking binoculars come with a 5-year warranty for added peace of mind.
