Leica Trinovid 8 x 42 HD

The binoculars of the Leica Trinovid family stand for durability, state-of-the-art image performance and ruggedness. Constant development has resulted in a new generation of Leica Trinovid models, and like their predecessors they offer outstanding color fidelity, image sharpness, compact form and low weight.

A full rubber-armor makes the new Leica Trinovid 42 models very impact-resistant. Representing a compact design with uncompromising resolution power and almost indestructible construction.

The new Leica Trinovid 42 comes with an ergonomic design that keeps the binoculars safely in the hand. It guarantees a steady grip and allows intuitive handling for absolutely precise focusing.

The essentials:

    • Pleasantly quiet observation thanks to the large exit pupil, even on long and exhausting tours
    • Bright visual experiences until deep into the dusk
    • Generous field of view for excellent overview over the longest distances

    I chose the Leica brand over other options because of the waterproof rating, slightly heavier but tougher construction, included quality strap/case/lens covers and great optical quality.
