    Kowa's KR Coating:

    • Kowa's KR coating is a special type of coating that is applied to the lenses of their binoculars.
    • This coating helps to repel dirt, water, and oil, making it easier to keep the lenses clean. The coating also helps to protect the lenses from scratches and other damage.

    Phase-Coated Roof Prism:

    • The Schmidt-Pechan roof surface is phase corrected to ensure sharp images with outstanding image contrast.
    • This means that the images are clear and detailed, with no blurring or ghosting.

    All-Surface Multi-Coating:

    • The lenses in Kowa binoculars are all-surface multi-coated. This means that every surface of the lenses has been coated with a special material that helps to improve light transmission and image brightness.
    • The all-surface multi-coating also helps to reduce glare and reflections, resulting in clearer images.

    Waterproof and Fogproof: 

    • The housing of the binoculars is waterproof to JIS Protection Class 7 and filled with dry nitrogen gas.
    • This prevents the binoculars from fogging up inside, even in humid or wet conditions.

    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. .
