Description

Details

The Kowa 10x32 BD II XD Binoculars feature phase-corrected and dielectric-coated Schmidt-Pechan roof prisms with anti-reflection fully multi-coated extra-low-dispersion XD objective lenses that work together to produce a versatile and capable optic with bright and clear high-contrast images and accurate color rendition. Coupled with the optical features are compact 32mm diameter objectives that straddle the line between compact and full-sized to give you the performance you need without the bulk that might weigh you down as you hike a trail, climb to an observation deck, or just sightseeing around the city.

Complementing the optical performance are construction details that make these binoculars durable and comfortable to use. The lightweight and durable magnesium alloy chassis is protected by rubberized armor that is textured for a nonslip grip. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature or environmental conditions. A right-eye diopter adjustment and twist-up eyecups allow the binoculars to be customized to most people's needs and can be comfortably used with or without eyewear.

From the trail to the range to the stadium?wherever you go, the BD II XD binoculars are sure to be your constant companion for what you need to see.

 

 




WIDE ANGLE

All BDII-XD binoculars in the range offer exceptional wide-angle performance and all quality as an official wide-angle optic ISO 14132-2 International Standard Optics and Optical Instruments.

KOWA XD LENSES

Every BDII-XD model features Kowa?s legendary XD objective lenses. This high-resolution ED glass contains large amounts of mineral fluorite crystal - the best material available today for light transmission ensuring an image with edge-to-edge sharpness and virtually zero chromatic aberration (color blur).

RUGGED RELIABILITY

Every model in the BDII-XD range benefits from a magnesium alloy chassis, a sophisticated moulding process that 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. The BDII-XD is fully waterproof and nitrogen filled.

 

Optical Performance

  • High 10x magnification brings distant subjects in for close viewing and identification
  • 32mm objective lenses provide improved light-gathering capability over smaller pocket-size models while remaining lightweight and compact
  • Schmidt-Pechan roof prism design allows for thinner optical tubes versus the more common Abbe-Koenig design, maintaining optical performance in an easier-to-hold chassis
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings eliminate internal light interference to improve clarity and eliminate ghosting
  • C3 dielectric prism coatings boost internal surface reflectivity to greater than 99% across the entire visual spectrum for maximum light transmission through the prism with minimal loss and diffraction and improved contrast, clarity, and color rendition
  • Extra-low dispersion fluoride crystal XD glass elements reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations to produce views with true color rendition without halos, diffraction, or distortion across the entire field of view
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated lenses maximize light transmission for bright and clear images with accurate color rendition
  • Protective XR exterior lens coating allows dirt, oils, and other residues to be easily cleaned off without streaking or smearing?ensuring clear views
  • Exceptional 4.25-foot close focus distance allows the user to make detailed observations of bugs, insects, hummingbirds, and flora & fauna
  • Wide 67° apparent angle of view helps to deliver an immersive observational experience while minimizing the appearance of distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics
  • Spacious 351-foot field of view at 1000 yards

Use and Handling

  • Closed bridge configuration offers a solid and stable platform for the internal focusing mechanism
  • Large slip-resistant center focus wheel is easy to manipulate in cold or wet conditions or when wearing gloves
  • Right-eye diopter adjustment enables users to compensate for an optical prescription for sharper views
  • Twist-up eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear; removable and replaceable
  • Comfortable 15mm eye relief improves viewing comfort and reduces eyestrain during long glassing sessions
  • 3.2mm exit pupil

Construction Details

  • Lightweight, strong, and corrosion-resistant magnesium alloy chassis
