The diopter adjustment locks. It’s beautiful in and of itself. It’s a joy to use something so beautifully engineered. The whole binocular is put together with the famous Leica attention to detail. It folds up into a tiny, neat packet that will literally fit in almost any pocket.

Designed with a combination of phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms, the proprietary HighLux system, and HDC fully multi-coated optics, Leica 8×20 BCR produces 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.

Light, compact, and easy to use while delivering bright and clear images, the Ultravid Leica Binoculars is made to be your constant companion on the trail, at the stadium, or sightseeing around the world.
