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.
