You can use their bins for wildlife observation, bird watching, hikes, and camping. In addition to that, several other models can be used for hunting, sporting events, and events.

Hawke Panorama ED Binoculars

Hawke Panorama ED Binoculars is the flagship model in the Hawke Bins. Panorama ED Binoculars is the premium spec series.

It is available in two models. The first one is the 10×42 and the next is the 8.5×42 model. They are both roof prism binoculars that come with an array of high-end features. Some of these features include the following:

Field Flattener Lenses

The use of the field flattener lenses is the most impressive feature. This technology is included to boost the sharpness and to reduce any form of distortion along the edges of your image. This is often a sign of true quality and is only used on the most expensive bins.

Premium ED Glass Technology

This technology helps to specifically reduce on color dispersion. In turn, it offers the user a high level of image sharpness. It also maximizes the clarity.

Thanks to the higher light transmittance ration that provides the bin with a remarkable contrast and top color resolution.

Fully Multi-coated Optics

This is a high-grade optical glass technology. Every surface is coated to provide the binoculars with the best image quality. The coatings will boost the prism’s reflectivity and in turn guarantee an even better visibility on any type of weather.

Dielectric Coatings

In addition to all these, the Panorama series also uses dielectric coatings. These coatings will maximize transmittance. They are found in high end bins are they are hard to develop.

Even so, it reassures any buyer of high quality and better transmittance. Dielectric Coatings rank higher than the regular silver coatings.

  • Additional Highlights
  • Magnesium alloy armor
  • Hard carry-on casing
  • Waterproof technology

Note: These models use phase corrected BaK-4 prisms. They are nitrogen purged and use O-ring seals to maximize water and fog resistance technology.

Hawke Frontier Binoculars

The Frontier ED was the flagship optics from Hawke Optics for a long time. This was before the introduction of the Panorama Series. That’s why they are still a top model in this brand of binoculars.

The Hawke Frontier models also have magnesium alloy armor, which is the highest body armor that you will get in a high-end bin.

The use of the magnesium armor maximizes durability and further reduces the weight of the binocular.

The Frontier binoculars are also 100% waterproof. They are nitrogen purged to prevent any form of internal fogging around the areas with high humidity or even rapid changes in temperature.
