Steiner has announced the launch of its new Anti Reflective Device (ARD) for Steiner Military-type Porro-prism binoculars with 30mm and 50mm objective lenses. Designed to eliminate reflections from the objective lenses, which can compromise your position during covert operations, the ARD features a new honeycomb pattern that reduce reflections by up to 100 percent.
The ARDs are constructed using non-corrosive parts and utilize the same ultra-durable Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) armor that is used on Steiner's military binocular line. Each ARD is molded in OD military green and incorporates a protective dust cover. The ARDs attach to the outside of the objective lens barrel and are held in place by tension fitting that is adjustable with an included hex key.
The ARDs are available in two sizes to fit 30mm or 50mm Steiner Porro-prism Military R or Military/Marine binoculars. They cannot be used with other binoculars, nor can they be used with the new Steiner 10x50 LRF binocular due to interference with the LRF's complex integrated laser rangefinding system.
The ARD's suggested retail price is approximately $140 (pair) and will be available through Steiner's nationwide dealer network.
