In this Armasight Nyx7-ID Gen 2+ Night Vision Goggles review, we are going to discuss why this model made it to our list.

We were eager to test the Armasight Nyx7 ID Gen 2+ (Click here to check price on Amazon) because of how much we enjoyed testing the Armasight Vega generation 1 night vision goggles. We were excited to discover that these bi-ocular night vision goggles were built around high-grade image intensifier tubes. These are the absolute perfect choice for hands-free usage. The Nyx7 was built with high-grade optics and simple, reliable electronics. The Nyx-7 ID provides bright and clear night vision images, even in some unfavorable conditions. This night vision device includes a built-in IR light source. This can be extremely helpful when reading maps or for basic, short-range illumination when you are in super dark places. The Armasight Nyx-7 ID is compatible with a variety of accessories such as 3X, 5X, and 8X magnification lenses for mid-long range viewing. This is ideal for anyone who is going to need to see far distances.

This night vision device also works well when head or helmet-mounted for hands-free operation. Some important features of the Nyx7 is that it is water-resistant and lightweight. Making it a good choice for a variety of night time activities. While this unit is light, don’t let that fool you. The Nyx7 is extremely durable and rugged. The Armasight Nyx7-ID is equipped with a high-performance Improved Definition Gen 2+ tube which provides resolution of 47-54 lp/mm. We really like how clear the picture was while using these. The dual eye viewing system provides much more comfort that will be helpful during long viewing sessions.
