AVP 10x40 Carbon Monocular
The AVP Carbon Monocular is our in-house developed monocular and is the best way to enhance any outdoor experience. Also known as a pocket telescope or spyglass, the vast majority of our customers use this monocular for the purposes of hiking, sight-seeing, bird watching, or for fun at the range.
Without a doubt, this monocular's strongest feature is the glass lens which is critical for maximizing light transmission and preventing color irregularities. Many competing products of this caliber, especially those found on marketplaces like Amazon, do not use glass. They instead use a cheaper acrylic resin which is a common cost-cutting measure that results in a lower quality image.
Our monocular also features the largest eyepiece diameter in its class. Measuring in at 26.5mm, this massive eyepiece offers a field-of-view that you wont find in competing 10x40 monoculars.

The underside also features a threaded port which means it can be mounted to a tripod.
WATERPROOF & FOGPROOF
This monocular is filled with nitrogen gas which prevents moisture, dust, and other miscellaneous debris from interfering with the image quality. This means that our monocular is completely waterproof and fogproof.
The History Of The 10x40 Configuration
Contrary to popular belief, bigger is not better when it comes to designing an optic. This is because higher levels of magnification can not be achieved without sacrificing several other important viewing characteristics. An optic's field-of-view decreases linearly as the magnification increases. When using the monocular for near-range applications, this can present a massive problem.
Another consideration is a measurement known as exit pupil size. It may sound counterintuitive, but smaller monoculars actually have larger exit pupil sizes which means they quite literally transmit more light to your pupils. This is critical when using your monocular in low light conditions. There is no point to greater magnification when the optic can not capture the necessary brightness to illuminate the image.
Last but not least, more powerful lenses are often heavier, thicker, and suffer from reduced light transmission when compared with their smaller counterparts. At the end of the day, we certainly acknowledge the existence of scenarios where more magnification can be useful. However, our primary thesis is that the vast majority of applications are best fulfilled with the AVP's 10x40 optical configuration.
All of our monoculars are sold with a lifetime warranty guaranteeing it to be free from manufacturer defects. Ships direct from our warehouse in Seattle or Boston.
*Due to ongoing changes in the design of new smartphones, we no longer advertise or offer support for this monocular's smartphone mounting capabilities. We will still include the mounting apparatus free of charge with your order but we can not assist you with setup. The mounting system, while a bit antiquated, still works with most smartphones and will still enhance the user experience in a number of ways.
