The Leica 8x20 Ultravid BR Binoculars deliver the views users have come to expect from the brand, with an easy-to-use and convenient-to-carry form factor.
They are designed with a combination of phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms, the proprietary HighLux system, and HDC fully multicoated optics to produce bright and clear color-neutral images, while fitting comfortably in the hand for long, fatigue-free glassing sessions. The HDC coatings add abrasion resistance to protect the exterior lens surfaces, and the lenses are also treated with AquaDura coatings which make it easy to clean dirt, grime, oils, sap, and fingerprints without leaving residues that can interfere with views.
Designed to easily fit in a pocket, pack, or purse, the binoculars are made with a dual-hinge system that allows the optical tubes to fold and tuck under the closed bridge to ensure the smallest form factor when fully closed. This also provides a wide interpupillary distance adjustment for easier use by those with narrow faces—like children and adolescents. Helping to reduce the weight to a mere 8.5 ounces is an aluminum alloy chassis that is wrapped in a matte-black rubber armor that provides a slip-resistant grip that feels comfortable in the hand, especially in cold and wet weather.
Light, compact, and easy to use while delivering bright and clear images, the Ultravid is made to be your constant companion on the trail, at the stadium, or while sightseeing around the world.
