Helios Mistral WP6 8x42

The Helios Mistral WP6 range comprises a highly specified roof prism design and modern top-hinge barrel connection. The 8x42 model is a great example of a top-quality, low-cost birdwatching binocular. It is constructed with silver-coated Bak-4 prisms and fully multi-coated optics, both of which results in a high resolution, clear image with an impressive depth of field. The view is crisp and bright and full of detail, illuminating your view of nature beautifully.

The chassis of the Helios Mistral WP6 roof prism 8x42 has been built in lightweight polycarbonate, giving a robust and strong casing for your optics. Finished in a stylish but practical rubber armour, the body is sleek, hardwearing and ergonomic-- everything expected from a top quality binocular.

The optics have been purged with Nitrogen and are fully waterproof, to a depth of 1.5 meters. Take them with you on any trip you may go on, rain or shine.

The following review is taken from BestBinocaulrsReview.com

“Strong Points: The image quality is impressive for a bin at this price and I thought that the overall look and build quality of the exterior is excellent. Indeed it is as good as many far more expensive optics and for me is about as good as it gets within this price range.

I really like the etched metal focus wheel that turns nice and smoothly and has a great feel and action. Similarly the twist-up eyecups are also very good, which combined with their 17.5mm of eye-relief makes them an ideal choice for most eyeglass wearers.

Whilst not chart topping, both the field of view and close focus are also good.

Weak points? Compared to the best binoculars in this price class, it has to be said the level of the extras, especially the neck strap is a little low. This is a shame, but to be fair they all work, but are just not as luxurious and lack a little in terms of the finer details as the better ones.

The lack of phase correction coatings on the roof prisms is a little bit of a shame as most of the best roof prism bins within this price class will have been treated.


When you combine their field of view and close focus specifications with their higher than usual specification body (at this price) and the more than acceptable image quality, the Helios Mistral makes for very competitive low costing 8x42 binocular and one which you won't go far wrong with in a range of normal uses.
