The BD II XD series uses the signature PROMINAR XD lenses to deliver brighter, sharper images without colour blur. The binocular has an ultra-wide field of view as well as a great close focus distance. The strong yet lightweight and compact body makes for comfortable viewing for long periods. The BD II XD is the new standard in mid-priced binoculars

Kowa Prominar XD Lenses

Kowa’s XD Lenses (eXtra-low) dispersion glass with similar characteristics to fluorite crystal) combines with a special dispersion concave lens to reduce a very high percentage of chromatic aberration for the ultimate viewing experience.

Schmidt-Pechan Roof Prism Lens and CCoating

Kowa’s roof prism binoculars use a Schmidt-Pechan prism. With the highly reflective C3 coating application, this increases reflectivity by 99% or higher reflectance rate across the entire visible spectrum (400-700nm). This not only provides bright and sharp images but also accurate colour reproduction.

Thixomolded Magnesium Alloy Body

A magnesium alloy body is formed using sophisticated thixomolding technology to deliver the benefits of a high-strength metal body but in a lightweight magnesium alloy structure. The durability and reliability of these binoculars can withstand the most severe conditions to provide users with the greatest degree of confidence and security.

Kowa’s KR Coating

Kowa’s KR coating protects the lenses from dirt and other foreign residues that may be affixed to the lenses during normal use. Fingerprints or oil can easily be removed with the proper lens cleaning techniques.

All-Surface Multi-Coating

The all-surface multi-coated optical system provides a precise colour definition for a brighter and sharper image.

Waterproof and Fogproof

The housing is waterproof to JIS Protection Class 7 and filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging to ensure image clarity.

Twist-Up Eyecups

Twist-up multi-step eyecups allow customization for easy viewing even when wearing eyeglasses.
