Built for harsh terrain and extreme conditions, Razor HD roof prism binoculars offer class leading performance in a lightweight and durable package. Index-matched, extra-low dispersion glass provides bright, clear images with excellent resolution and color fidelity. Plasma Tech applied XR full multi-coatings allow for very high light transmission, providing the low-light performance needed for those crucial dawn and dusk hours.

A rubber armored magnesium chassis is strong and light and features an ergonomic open hinge design for comfort during long glassing sessions. O-ring seals and Argon gas purge to make these binoculars fog and waterproof to go along with their ultra-hard ArmorTek coating to protect the exterior lens surfaces from dirt, oil, and scratches. 

The user experience is aided by twist adjustable eye cups to accommodate the use of eyewear and a smooth center focus wheel. The right side diopter locks so individual eye focus doesn't get lost during rigorous activities. A tripod adapter (sold separately) can provide additional support when needed. 

These premium binoculars include a GlassPak binocular harness, comfort neck strap, tethered objective lens covers, and a Rain guard eyepiece cover.
