Brighter, sharper, more compact, more functional and robust than previous binoculars of this lens size, the LEICA Ultravid 8x20 BCR Compact Binoculars, Black (40252) represent an entirely new era in high-performance, compact European binoculars.
The use of ashperical lens technology in the Leica Ultravid Compacts allows for full-size binocular performance in a compact, lightweight body. The 100% aircraft-grade aluminum housing keeps weight to a minimum while adding considerable ruggedness.
High-Durable Coatings (HDC) on external lenses improve image quality and protect the lenses from scratches and harmful environmental effects. The new High-Lux System is a 42-layer prism coating that produces nearly 100% light transmission per glass-to-air surface, thus giving the user the absolute finest image contrast and most natural color rendition across the entire spectrum.
The Ultravid Compact Binoculars feature Leica's industry-leading waterproof submersion rating of 5 m/16.5 ft and they are also nitrogen filled to prevent fogging.
The Ultravid 8x20 BCR Compact Binoculars include a woven carrying strap, eyepiece cover, and cordura case with belt loop. The binoculars offer Leica's 3-year Passport Protection Plan plus Lifetime Limited Warranty, which is the strongest warranty in the high-performance segment of the optics industry.
