The BL 8×33 Comfort Bridge binocular from Minox USA Inc., Meriden, N.H., is a sleeker version, designed for extended viewing, with enhanced comfort and secure handling, weighing 22.9 oz. The rubber-armored body is made of space-age polycarbonate, is extremely rugged and impervious to weather, handling temperatures from 14° to 122° F, as well as waterproof to more than 16 feet.
The high-quality Minox optical system has phase-corrected roof prisms, coupled with multi- coated lens elements, ensuring brilliant, pin-sharp images with natural color rendition, even in challenging low-light situations. To capture moving objects fast and reliably, it has an exceptionally large field of view: 420 feet at 1,000 yards.
A nitrogen filling provides corrosion resistance and prevents fogging of the glass surfaces, even with severe temperature fluctuations. With extended eye relief and click-stop, twist-up retractable rubber eyecups, it meets the needs of eyeglass wearers, so they can see the entire field without vignetting. It comes with a nylon strap and a carrying case.
