Product Info for LEUPOLD BX-5 Santiam HD 10x42mm Sub Alpine Binoculars (174484)

Sporting the magnification–objective lens configuration favored by professionals all over the world, the Leupold 10x42 BX-5 Santiam HD Binocular, in Sitka Gear Optifade Sub-Alpine camouflage, delivers bright high-contrast images with true-to-life color and crisp clarity even when observing from long distances.

This binocular is outfitted with a suite of features engineered to complement each other to deliver its performance, including lead-free calcium-fluoride extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, the proprietary Xtended Twilight (XT) Lens System, plus the Twilight Max HD Light Management System. Image quality is further enhanced through the use of phase-corrected coatings on the BAK4 prisms. The XT and Twilight Max HD systems enhance the already superior light transmission of the glass with index-matched lens coatings that are specifically engineered to raise the already high transmittance across the entire visible spectrum—with special emphasis on the blue and violet wavelengths that are most prevalent in low light. A wide apparent angle of view presents an immersive observational experience to complement the impressive optical performance while helping to minimize the distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics such as this.

Designed to stand up to a life lived outdoors, the exterior surfaces of the lenses are treated with Leupold's Diamondcoat2 and Guard-Ion coatings to protect them against scratches and scuffs and allow water and oil to be easily cleaned off—ensuring clear and smudge-free views in all weather conditions. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature variations. The chassis is made from polycarbonate to make it lightweight and corrosion resistant. To help further cut weight, while providing you with more area to grip, Leupold employs an open-bridge configuration. Adding even more comfort while in the field, the Santiam comes with an upgraded case and strap that offer maximum protection in the field.
