New MINOX “Comfort Bridge” Binoculars Deliver Performance Benefits


Recognizing that birdwatchers want ample magnification with minimal weight, MINOX provides the answer for birders who use binoculars for an extended period of time. Offering significant advantages are two Comfort BridgeTM binoculars, with a choice of BL 8×44 or 10×44 models.

MINOX design-engineers combined sleek, distinctive styling with the practical ergonomic advantages of enhanced comfort and secure handling, plus an increased field of view over previous BL models, creating a new standard for open-bridge binoculars.

Lightweight (26 oz.) construction means birders can enjoy “carry-all-day” comfort. Still, these sturdy binoculars are very durable, thanks to a space-age polycarbonate body that is rubber-armored for sure grip, noise dampening and ruggedness. With sophisticated sealing technology, they are waterproof to 16’6″, and Nitrogen filling prevents fogging of internal optical surfaces.

The optimum objective lens size of 44 mm, backed by phase-corrected roof prisms and M* multi-layer lens coating ensures brilliant, tack-sharp images with natural color rendition, even in challenging low-light situations. To capture birds in flight faster and more reliably, the field of view has been increased to 410 feet at 1,000 yards for the 8×44, and 341 feet for the 10×44, an increase of 16%.

Typical of MINOX attention to detail, there are twist-up eye cups for convenience, and the Comfort Bridge binoculars come with a neoprene neck strap and a carrying case. With all of these advantages, birders will be pleased to find the retail price is just $489 for the BL 8×44 and $499 for the 10×44.
