The Firefield Tracker 1x24 Night Vision Goggles allow for incredibly detailed observation ability under the darkness of night that includes a head gear accessory for a flip-up, adjustable and hands-free unit. The Tracker 1x24 provides clear viewing in total darkness by utilizing a built-in IR infrared illuminator; when in use the illuminator emits a pulsing frequency that is so energy efficient it creates less battery drainage and prolongs battery life. The ergonomically designed rubberized body is surprisingly lightweight and can be taken on long expeditions both easily and comfortably and is great for prolonged use with the head gear accessory. The Tracker utilizes the revolutionary Eclipse Lens Cover System which uses flip-up covers that can be easily clipped back against the body of the binoculars and rotated out of the user's viewing area while eliminating lens cap hassles. Pin holes in the lens caps allow the Tracker to be used in the daytime when the caps are closed. Also featured is a dual diopter adjustment with central focusing knob and fully multi-coated optics.

This is a two tube model so each eye’s diopter settings are individually set. That’s important for me because I wear glasses. I put my glasses away and set this unit to my vision then used the focus dial for the right distance. It’s easy to adjust the diopter settings so it’s not a problem to had the NVGs to my kids and let them adjust and use them. In fact, I left the included neck strap on the NVGs when mounting into the headgear and would just hand them off and let them hang on their neck versus trying to fiddle with the harness then adjust it back again for my use.
I was very satisfied with the image quality both with and without the IR. From one position I could see high voltage power lines that I estimate were about 300ft away. I could focus and easily see each of the two wires hanging from the 6 points on the tower. When walking with these on the head, I found that I could easily focus on the ground directly in front of me then look up to a medium distance to get my bearings. I couldn’t focus on a compass in my hand but I didn’t expect to be able to either. The minimum focus distance on this unit was about 3 feet (specs say 1M). Navigation was easy enough by focusing on to a distance, dead reckoning on landmarks further away, and then refocusing back. In a blind with the IR on, be careful of objects close-in since they will illuminate very brightly making it impossible to see beyond them. In other words, if you’ve never used NVGs with IR, don’t expect to use IR illumination from a concealed position unless you have a specific clear line of sight or have supplemental IR illumination of your target/area – like IR flashlights, IR laser, etc.
Pros: Much better quality construction and image than I was expecting. The battery type (123A) is lithium and has a ~10+ year shelf life. When you read the con below, this is a counterpoint so long as you plan ahead. Dual tube for better depth perception than a single tube. 3 year warranty. Lens caps flip and lock - nothing to get lost falling from the pocket.
Cons: Battery – uses the 123A type. I didn’t find them at Walmart but did find them at Best Buy. (I didn't have time to wait for Amazon shipping) I mention it as a con since it’s not your standard battery that you have lying around the house so order a few extra and keep them in the bag. The head gear is not easily adjustable for multiple users. Its set before use so if you are trading off between users, it’s not easily adjustable on the fly. It’s not an issue for me but my kids who wanted to also wear the unit found it unfortunate. I know that Velcro would be an option but I prefer the quiet and solid setup that comes with the unit over something that could be adjusted during wear.
In all, the pros far outweigh the cons. Since someone will likely ask, the label inside show the unit being made in Belarus. I’m good with that and appreciate that they are being sold and backed by a TX company with a 3 year warranty. I’ve contacted them with an inquiry and am very satisfied with their support to date. If I rolled over these with my jeep on accident, I’d buy this exact unit again from Firefield.
Couple of issues- First, the first set I received didn't work. I returned them and got a second set, which didn't work. I knew that it was something weird. I had tried many different batteries, but it didn't work. Then, I tried installing the batteries BACKWARDS and it worked fine. I called the company and let them know that the battery labels on on backwards.
-Next, the headset is not very comfortable, and if you have a larger head, may not fit.
-The buttons are not the greatest. For the price, I would expect more, but they work with some getting used to.
Note that "CR123A" batteries are being replaced with just "123" batteries. These work fine in the NODS, but don't worry if you can't find CR123A locally, everyone carries 123s.
Overall, they work great and will get lots of use. I just wish they would handle a little of the smaller issues.
Note- the IR lamp is noticeable from the front. If you are buying these for paintball or something, get a GEN 2.
