Compact and lightweight with elegant black leather details and trim that give it a classic and refined style to match its superior optical performance, the Leica 8x20 Ultravid Blackline Binocular delivers the views users have come to expect from the brand.
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, 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 ounces is an aluminum alloy chassis that is wrapped in black leather that gives it a refined look while still providing a slip-resistant grip that feels comfortable in the hand. 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 theater, or sightseeing around the world.
