When you need a birding binocular that performs well in even the most demanding field sessions, set your sights on the Kowa 8x42 SV II. This model features anti-reflective fully multi-coated optics, phase-correcting prisms coatings, and an outward-facing lens coating that protects the glass from oil residue. These features combine to give you bright, sharp, high-contrast images with true-to-life color representation. The 8x42 SV II's polycarbonate chassis is lightweight yet durable, wrapped in rubberize armoring that provides a non-slip grip and comfortable feel in the hand. This Kowa binocular's barrels are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed, making them fog-proof, waterproof, and ready for anything.

Note: This item will be dropshipped directly by the manufacturer. Depending on the manufacturer's current warehouse operations, order processing and shipping speeds may be slower than expected. We will communicate your order's status as updates become available.
