Every model in the BDII-XD range benefits from a magnesium alloy chassis, a sophisticated moulding process produces the feel and strength of metal with the added benefit of decreased weight. The lightweight, rugged structure can tolerate the severest conditions and provides a sense of security and longevity. Surrounding the tough magnesium alloy body is a protective layer of rubber armour, not only providing a sure, comfortable grip but also increasing the level of durability. Each BDII-XD is fully waterproof and dry nitrogen filled to prevent the lenses from fogging and Kowa’s KR coating protects from dirt and other foreign residue build-up that may affix to the lenses during use.
One of the stand-out optical features of the Kowa BD II XD 8×42 Binoculars are their enviable large field of view, boasting class leading wide angle performance. Viewing is comfortable on the eye, making long periods of use out in the field a pleasure. A wider field of view makes locating a subject quicker and easier, particularly when panning a wide area or tracking a moving subject. In simple terms it can mean the difference between spotting your subject or not.
A sleek, ergonomic design with a specially selected tactile rubber armour layer ensures easy and comfortable operation – elevating every moment of use. A fluid, responsive focus wheel delivers pin point accuracy and smooth twist eye-cups ensure optimum viewing for both spectacle and non spectacle wearers. The ergonomic body of the BDII-XD series is as impressive as the optics it protects, with every curve considered to make observation both relaxing and free from fatigue.
