Product Description

Viking Badger 8x42 Binoculars

The Viking Badger binoculars are an affordable set of binoculars that are ideal for casual users or beginner birdwatchers. With multicoated lenses for a clearer image, as well as waterproof design, they can be used in all weathers, making them ideal for the volatile British climate. They also come with a rainguard, case, and carrying strap, meaning they are ready to go straight out of the box.

High-clarity lenses

Viking are known for the high quality of their lenses, and the Badger range is no exception. Crafted to the highest standard, their multicoated optics keep light loss to a minimum, ensuring a clearer image. This particular model offers a 6.44-degree field-of-view, which is equivalent to 113m at a 1km distance. 18.2mm eye relief makes the Badger comfortable to use for long periods of time, so it's a great choice if you're planning on spending the day birdwatching. The binoculars are also nitrogen-filled to prevent the lenses from fogging, making them ideal for use in all weathers.

Weatherproof design

Thanks to a rubber-armoured design, the Badger binoculars are waterproof and easy to grip in wet conditions or while wearing gloves, and the focusing ring is also easy to operate. 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.

Why Should You Buy These Binoculars?

If you are looking for an affordable set of binoculars which offer great value for money, these Viking Badger binoculars are a superb choice. With high-clarity lenses, weatherproof design, and durable rubber-armoured body, they are perfect for the birdwatcher on the go.

    Good value - would recommend!

    Good value - would recommend! Arrived promptly and have taken out a handful of times. Still impressed with the overall feel of the binoculars - seem well made for binoculars of this price and the image quality is excellent!

    These are excellent binoculars. I bought them to use as a second pair of binoculars that I would just leave in the car so that I always have a pair to hand when out and about. My main pair are also Viking - the Perergrine ED 8x42 so I know and trust Viking as a brand. I would consider the Badger binoculars as a good "budget buy" option at under £100 and I have to say have been pleasantly surprised by the quality. Great detail for the price and a good entry-level pair for a beginner or as a second pair like me. Would highly recommend - great price and delivery from ligo also!

    Outstanding Quality

    I bought this as a surprise present for my wife whose binoculars were very heavy and difficult to carry. I would suggest that for quality and clarity the Viking Badger 8 x 42 binoculars are top of their price range for quality. Indeed, they are superior to many more expensive binoculars. The lens are excellent. My wife has been really delighted with the Viking Badger 8 x 42 binoculars which she finds so easy to use in every way.
    We highly recommend these binoculars for bird watching and general use.
