Folllowing the success of the existing 15x56 model, Leupold & Stevens, Inc. has added 8x42 and 10x42 variants to the BX-5 Santiam HD binocular line.
“The BX-5 Santiam HD line is purpose-built for the relentless, diehard hunter that may need to glass for hours on end,” said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Whether you’re picking out a sheep on a distant ridgeline or hunting to the very last minute to get a look at that once-in-a-lifetime trophy bull elk, this is the binocular you’ll want at your side.”
The entire BX-5 Santiam HD line features Leupold’s venerable Twilight Max HD light management system—the same one associated with the award-winning VX-5HD and VX-6HD riflescopes—to allow users to glass longer during the early pre-dawn hours to well past dusk. Twilight Max HD combines exceptional light transmission and glare management to provide vivid images and top-of-the-line optical performance in low-light conditions.
A durable, lightweight housing is shrouded in a rubber armor coating that helps protect the binocular and ensure it’s easy to grasp. A large, tactile focus dial is easy to use and find, even with gloved hands. A diopter focus paddle is included to allow consumers to precisely focus the binoculars, compensating for differences between their eyes.
“We received an excellent response to the BX-5 Santiam HD 15x56 model,” said product line manager Zach Bird. “We’re ecstatic to bring the 8x42 and 10x42 models to the market for 2018. They’ll deliver the same high-end, relentless performance worthy of the Leupold brand name.”
The 8x42 and 10x42 BX-5 Santiam HD binocular models will be available in Shadow Gray and Sitka Subalpine finishes. Lens coatings shed water, dirt, oil and fingerprints. A generous, forgiving eyebox is ideal for long glassing sessions. The entire BX-5 Santiam HD line is backed by the Leupold Full Lifetime Guarantee.
