Nocs Provisions' Zoom Tube

Lightweight, compact, and easy to use - The Zoom Tube is small enough to pack for any backcountry excursion yet with optics that pack a serious punch. Water-resistant and easy on the eyes, the Zoom Tube is built to get out deep into the field and help explore your surroundings. 

For added function, the Zoom Tube attaches to the shoulder strap of pack with the Peak Design Capture Clip. To make things even cooler, the Inspector provides field-ready microscope functionality for getting up close with snow crystals

The Zoom Tube is 8x32 (8x magnification / ​ 32mm lens aperture), the equivalent of a 400mm zoom lens. Featuring Swiss-designed Bak4 prisms, each piece of glass on the Zoom Tube is coated multiple times to reduce chromatic aberration and provide more brightness. With a wide field of view (384ft @ 1000 yds / ​ 7.3º) the Zoom Tube allows you to see an extremely wide range while maintaining a close focus of 2M (7ft) for viewing nature’s smaller details.

MSRP: $75.
