This level of magnification is ideal for a wide range of outdoor activities, such as birdwatching, hunting, and stargazing, providing a versatile viewing experience.
  • 42mm Objective Lens: The 42mm objective lens diameter allows a substantial amount of light to enter the binoculars. This ensures brighter images and better visibility, even in low-light conditions. This feature is especially beneficial during dawn and dusk when wildlife tends to be more active, enabling you to capture finer details with exceptional clarity.
  • Advanced Optical System: Meticulously designed to offer tried and true light transmission. This ensures that even during extended glassing sessions, you experience impeccable clarity. Additionally, it excels in reducing glare, particularly in harsh lighting conditions, meeting the exacting demands of recreational sports enthusiasts. The resolution and clarity provided by this system are truly exceptional, enhancing your viewing experience to a whole new level.
  • Extreme Climate Exposure: These binoculars are engineered to perform at the highest level, even in the most challenging conditions. They are rigorously tested to withstand a temperature range from a bone-chilling -40 degrees Fahrenheit to a scorching 160 degrees Fahrenheit. This means you can trust them to function reliably regardless of the climate you find yourself in.
  • Waterproof and Fogproof: Leupold ensures that their binoculars can endure the harshest of weather conditions. Whether you're caught in torrential downpours or need to cross rivers, you can have confidence in the waterproof and fogproof capabilities of these binoculars.

  • Abbe-Koenig Prism: The binoculars feature an Abbe-Koenig prism, which maximizes light transmission, clarity, and resolution even at extended ranges. This prism design enhances the overall optical performance of the binoculars.
  • Lightweight and Comfortable Design: The ergonomic open bridge design of these binoculars ensures that they are not only lightweight but also comfortable to hold for extended periods. This design element is crucial for reducing fatigue during prolonged observation sessions.
