Endeavor ED 1042 Binoculars
Vanguard's top-of-the-range 10x42 Endeavor ED binoculars deliver sharpness and clarity like never before, with exceptional light transmission and remarkable colour resolution and contrast.
The Endeavor ED features an ergonomic, open-bridge design that's comfortable to use, along with a wide viewing angle and ultra-reliable BaK-4 roof prisms.
The magic behind the binocular's performance lies in the premium ED glass, which reduces light dispersion to provide high-resolution colours and clarity. As a result, you can view objects from a distance as if they were standing right next to you. Vanguard also added an anti-reflective coating for even better clarity and a large focussing wheel for ease of use. Also, thanks to the binocular's nitrogen-charged, O-ring-sealed design, the Endeavor's waterproof/fogproof housing can take on the most challenging weather conditions.
Endeavor ED has BaK4 roof prisms and special lens coatings for unbelievable quality. Nitrogen-charged and O-ring sealed, Endeavor ED is waterproof and fogproof to take on challenging weather conditions.

Lenses, prisms and coatings
ED glass effectively reduces colour dispersion and enhances colour resolution and contrast. Different light wavelengths do not come to the same point after passing the lens. ED glass helps to correct this problem. As a result, the image is sharper.
P2 Phase Coating
Developed for enhanced image clarity and true colour reproduction, P2 Phase Coating treatment to BaK4 prisms creates crystal clear images and high resolution observation.
V-Max Silver Coating is among the most cutting-edge lens treatments in optics, providing crisper, more vivid images and sharper contrast due to impressive light reflection.
AR coating (Anti-Reflection)
AR Coating on all air-to-surface lenses dramatically minimizes light reflection on the lens. Coupled with fully multi-coated treatment, it ensures near perfect light transmission and image recognition, enabling the brightest images possible, even on the sunniest days.
The VANGUARD Emerald coating is specifically designed to provide the full spectrum of colour within the band of green tones. This coating is essential for nature enthusiasts, because it ensures the most vivid and natural shades of green.
Nitrogen charged and O-ring sealed, Endeavour is waterproof and fog proof to take on the most challenging weather conditions.

Clearly they feel well made and even the box feels like quality.
I've always wanted a great pair of binoculars and was persuaded to go with these after reading reviews and understanding more about the 10x42.
They give me a wider view and they are sharp and very bright.
They give you the sense that they could sit on the mantle piece for all to see and be handy when you need them.
Everything you've read about them being top notch is true and correct... just be aware though that the weight is really the compromise on price other than that ... excellent.
Don't get me wrong they feel well balanced and easy to handle.
Other than that they are great, everyone there is highly impressed with them and the clarity of vision / magnification and precision, the fact that they also seem unbreakable is a added bonus. They are small enough to be carried easily and not too heavy to have slung over your shoulder when riding or tied to a saddle.
I contacted Vanguard for a new eye piece and they couldn't have been more helpful in sending one through.
Fantastic product well worth every penny, I would thoroughly recommend them, small, tough, beautifully made and brilliant clarity.
The only minor disadvantages are that at 730g they are slightly heavier than the very lightest available and that you have to be very precise with the focussing wheel - this though you get used to after a few uses and is not a long term issue.
Highly recommended. Superb Value.
A pleasure to use, a bit heavier than my last pair but this does not detract, they are really comfortable to hold and are well made.
A good quality case is provided, quality neck strap, clever adjustment on strap, pity the case zip did not have two zip tabs.
I am very pleased with my purchase and can highly recommend these binoculars for general use and birdwatching.
They have a very solid feel to them, and are open bridge, so are easy to hold. They replaced an old pair of Zeiss Jena Jenoptem 8x30, which were particularly light, but I didn't notice the extra weight, as the strap is wide and distributes the weight of 730g well. Plus, the case is featherweight light, unlike the leather Zeiss one. They are easy to hold steady for a 10x pair, so are good for hand-held birdwatching, though there is a tripod attachment point if needed. This needs an L-shaped adapter. They are rubber armoured, and the eyecups are also rubber coated. They are waterproof, being nitrogen filled.
Adjusting the diopter setting is easy, and there is a convenient lock: you pull the eyecups out, adjust, then push back. Having tried this, and wishing to try these on a sunny day at Bempton cliffs, sharing them with my wife, I decided to retract the eyecups and use them with glasses on, an impossible feat with my previous Zeiss's. The exit pupil was just adequate for both of us. We could see a good field of view without removing our glasses. (Eye relief is 16.5mm, in case you are interested. If this is not enough, you could go for the 8x version.) The view was bright and clear and they were easy to focus, the focus being fast and accurate. The bridge is reassuringly stiff, too, to adjust for inter-pupillary distance.
The specs are impressive: ED (extra density) lenses; silver coated reflective surfaces inside; multi-coating; 342' field at 1000 yards. The only minor blemish is close focusing distance of just over 8'.Read more ›
I don't pretend to understand all the technical stuff so I'll keep it simple.
They are easy to hold, not too heavy, and full of well-thought out features that make them just about perfect, like the permanently attached lens covers that even I can't lose! They're also really simple to adjust and give a good clear view of whatever you point them at, be that birds or passing shipping. Overall, money very well spent.
