Compact and lightweight, the Leica 8x20 Ultravid BR Binocular delivers the views users have come to expect from the brand with an easy to use and convenient to carry form factor.
It is designed with a combination of phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms, the proprietary HighLux system, and HDC fully multi-coated 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. For those who want to make detailed observations of plants, small birds, and insects, this model of the Ultravid has a short 6-foot minimum focus distance to allow viewing without disturbing the subject.
Designed to easily fit in a pocket, pack, or purse, the binocular is 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 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 sightseeing around the world.
