Meopta MeoPro 10×42 HD Binoculars Wins Outdoor Life Great Buy Award

TAMPA, FL, August 9, 2021 – Meopta’s new MeoPro Air 10×42 HD binocular has won Outdoor Life magazine’s 2021 Great Buy award.  The advanced optical system and sleek design of this high-performance, open-hinge binocular elevates the MeoPro line to a new level that is truly unmatched from a price-performance standpoint. 

The test team found the dual-hinge, open-bridge design of the MeoPro Air “modern, strong, and extremely useful,” either for locking in the optic with two hands or one-hand use.

“The Air’s image was excellent, on par with what we’d expect from this optics company based in the Czech Republic,” said Andrew McKean of Outdoor Life. “The three-position eyecups are responsive and very comfortable, and the balance and ergonomics of the Air make field operation a joy.”

Testers also praised the magnetic lens cover stays as “simple but ingenious”.

Built to withstand the harshest hunting environments, the Air features high-definition, extra-low dispersion HD fluoride glass with MeoBright lens coatings for maximum resolution and contrast.  Images are bright and crisp while colors are true and vibrant.  The low light capability allows hunters to see fine detail in the dimmest light of dawn and dusk.

“It is always an honor when the Outdoor Life test team recognizes our efforts to make exceptional optics at great price points,” said Miroslav Brada, Global Manager, Meopta Sport Optics.  “We appreciate the time they take to test new optics each year and know their readers do as well.”

The exterior lenses of the MeoPro Air are protected from scratches by the MeoShield anti-abrasion lens coating, while the MeoDrop hydrophobic lens coating repels rain, dust, and grease.  The body is made from lightweight magnesium-alloy and protected by durable rubber armoring that provides a secure, non-slip grip.   

Available in 8×42 HD and 10×42 HD, both models are tripod adapter ready, nitrogen purged, and fully sealed for fogproof and waterproof performance in the most demanding conditions.  Like all Meopta optics sold in the United States, they are backed by Meopta’s Lifetime Transferrable Warranty.

Retail Pricing $999.00
