The BDII-XD range features Kowa XD (high-grade ED) lenses and boasts an impressive close focus—merely 1.3 meters for the 32mm models. All of these features are offered at an accessible price point without requiring any compromises.


  • 8x Magnification: The Kowa BDII-XD 8x32mm Prominar Roof Prism Wide Angle Binocular delivers a potent 8x magnification for detailed long-range observation. This feature enhances clarity and precision, making it especially advantageous for activities like bird watching, wildlife observation, or sporting events.
  • 32mm Objective Lens: With a 32mm objective lens, this binocular achieves a harmonious blend of portability and light-gathering capability. Its compact and lightweight design ensures ease of use, while the lens allows for ample light transmission, resulting in clear and bright images across diverse lighting conditions.
  • Kowa XD Lenses: Kowa's XD lenses are made with extra-low dispersion glass that has similar characteristics to fluorite crystal. This helps to reduce chromatic aberration, which is a type of distortion that can cause colors to appear blurry or unfocused. The XD lenses in Kowa binoculars provide the ultimate viewing experience with sharp, clear images and accurate color reproduction.
  • Schmidt-Pechan Roof Prism Lens and C Coating: Kowa binoculars use a Schmidt-Pechan roof prism. This type of prism is known for its high light transmission and image brightness. The C coating on the prism further increases light transmission and helps to reduce glare.
  • Kowa's KR Coating: Kowa's KR coating is a special anti-reflective coating that helps to protect the lenses from dirt and other foreign residues. It also makes it easy to clean the lenses without leaving any streaks or smudges.
  • All-Surface Multi-Coating: The all-surface multi-coating on the lenses in Kowa binoculars helps to improve light transmission and image brightness. It also helps to reduce glare and reflections, resulting in sharper, clearer images.
  • Waterproof and Fog Proof: The housing of Kowa binoculars is waterproof to JIS Protection Class 7. This means that they can withstand immersion in water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter. The binoculars are also filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging.
  • Twist-Up Eyecups: The twist-up eyecups on Kowa binoculars allow for customization for easy viewing even when wearing eyeglasses. They can be adjusted to provide a comfortable and clear view for everyone.

        Great wide field of view.

        I have owned these bino's for a couple of weeks now. They are quite well made. The optics really do seem to be high quality, it's all about the glass. Quick focus and bright images are impressive.

        Compact and powerful!

        Love these 8x32's, they could easily outshine much pricier models. I did the comparison. Thanks RCT for your assistance.
