The NVMT 4x50 night vision monocular is an incredible multi-functional unit; both compact and lightweight, this versatile monocular weighs only 13oz. Featuring a durable, Rubber Armor body the 4x50 is weather resistant and completely capable of being taken off the beaten path. The built-in Pulse IR system uses a powerful infrared illuminator to provide added light detection under conditions where there is little or no detectable light and the illuminator’s pulsating beam reaches 2 to 3 times farther than other infrared systems and reduces battery drain. The NVMT series is the epitome of what a multitasking line should be; completely accessory driven, this monocular has the ability to be converted into a riflescope, mounted to head gear or transformed into a night vision camera. Available accessories include a IR flashlight, digital camera adapter, NVMT head gear kit and NVMT riflescope conversion kit. The NVMT 4x50 is backed by Yukon’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Advanced optics are capable of providing 4X night vision magnification with only starlight, at up to 270 yards of detection distance.
The NVMT 4x50 is the most powerful handheld in the line. Fully multi-coated lenses decrease glare and improve light transmission to provide excellent viewing capabilities, while the internal components amplify visible for detailed nighttime observation. Its 50-millimeter lens ensures powerful light gathering and transmission for a pristine image, and is capable of providing 4X night vision magnification with only starlight. It operates by amplifying existing light using an electro-optical system, and its lenses have improved wavelength/contrast characteristics to help maximize light utilization.
An ergonomically-designed Rubber Armor body fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, and slides into your pocket for quick accessibility, making it ideal for travel and prolonged use. Capable of being transformed into any of the NVMT line's variations, the 4x50 can additionally be used with an NVMT Riflescope Conversion Kit or NVMT Head Gear Kit.

- Ergonomically it is quite nice; holding the unit in your right hand puts the buttons (on/off and IR illumination on/off) right under your index and ring fingers. The unit is small, light and easy to hold.
- The 12mm eye-relief functions as advertised; in fact you can get a slightly clearer picture if you hold the unit a little distance away. Thus it will work fine with eyeglasses (which I wear.)
- The rear lens is pretty "stiff" when you go to turn it, so once you've adjusted the focus for your eye it won't go and un-focus itself at the slightest untoward bump, like some binoculars like to do.
- The lens cap is excellent; it sticks in the lens very well, and won't come off too easily or by accident. There's even a groove on the left-hand side of the device that holds the lens cap in storage while you're using the unit, so you won't lose it. Both are very important as you don't want to expose night vision to bright light; bad for the unit.
If you've never bought night vision before, here's what it's like to use the unit:
- Field of view is pretty narrow - only 15 degrees, as the specs say, and that doesn't account for the fish-bubble effect around the edge, where resolution is not as good. The resolution, however, is sufficient to work as advertised. Tested against a treeline 150 yards away, I can attest it will certainly pick up a deer, or a man, or a coyote, quite easily. Positively identifying something as small as a coyote (as said critter, and not a dog, or a fox) might be trickier, but it WILL show you where it is. Thus, this unit is good for scanning a treeline out to 150 yards, but not for finding your way through a dark basement (for that you'd want a unit with broad field of view but smaller lenses, like a 2x24mm lens unit.)
- Night Vision: very good. This IS a starlight scope, the claims are warranted. The IR illumination only added a very slight benefit scanning a treeline at 150 yards, but it was hardly needed. Any source of nearby light pollution, no matter how humble, has a drastic effect on what the unit can see - this includes moonlight. A bright security lamp that illuminates about 1/8th of my 5-acre spread in usably bright light effectively illuminates the entire 5-acres when using the Yukon scope on it. To the unaided eye, the illumination in said areas is a little worse then a half-moon night. In almost total darkness, far away from civilization, your results may vary - after testing, I would say the IR illumination is good out to 75 yards, conservatively. Remember that IR flashlights can be had cheap; including very big spotlight-width handhelds (for about 80 bucks,) which will likely be cheaper then paying a hundred or hundred-fifty for a similar scope with a more powerful illuminator.
This can be attributed to the 50mm lens - it does NOT widen field-of-view, but rather light-capturing ability. The lens-cap has a "pinhole" in it, actually big enough to accept a regular wooden pencil, to let just enough light in for safe testing in daylight. With the lens-cap on the visible field-of-view through the unit is only slightly impeded - that's how narrow it is! The "intensifier tube" is only so wide. But the relatively wide 50mm lens pulls in a lot of ambient light to feed to it.
Conclusions: this is a great unit for carrying around, and for looking at things at or over 50 yards away. It's not meant for close-in work, like a dense forest, or operating operationally in a terrorist-infested basement, if that's your need. At the price point I doubt anything will substantially outdistance this unit.
First, conditions: clear skies, 35F, moon approaching 1/2 phase 11 o'clock position.
The area I was in had one security light approximately 300 yards away opposite a clean hay meadow surrounded by a tree line with medium brush.
The first thing I noticed when I powered the unit on was that the lens needed adjusting, which only took a moment. As I peered through the unit across the hay meadow, it was as if it was daylight, very clear and crisp details up to the full 300 yards. The IR was not necessary however I did test it and it does make a much notable difference in the intensity of the image. Let me be clear though that the IR was not necessary at all. Images were clear up to a proximity of about 10 yards, closer than that and everything is a haze which is to be expected for a 4x scope.
The true test will be on a new moon night in an area without a security light in the distance. However with the performance the unit is already showing for a generation 1 unit, I won't be disappointed. I doubt that you could be either for the price.
