New Leupold Wind River Katmai Series Binoculars
Hunting Gear - BEAVERTON, Ore. New Leupold Wind River Katmai Series binoculars, available in three magnification levels, provide hunters and shooters with full-size optical performance in a compact package that is lightweight and easy to carry or pack.
Available in three roof-prism models ˇV 6x32mm, 8x32mm and 10x32mm ˇV the Katmai offers twist-up eyecups that make use easy with or without eyeglasses. ˇ§The key to Katmaiˇ¦s performance is the 32mm objective lens, which is larger than the objective lens of traditional compact binoculars, said Mike Slack, marketing communications manager for Leupold. As a result, the Katmai transmits a greater amount of light to the eyes.
Slack added, The Katmai also optimizes light transmission and reduces glare because it features fully multi-coated lenses and L-coated& 8482; prisms. Ultimately the clear, bright sight picture is designed to enhance the hunting experience.
Generous eye relief helps make the Katmai comfortable to use for extended periods, even with glasses. Built for all-weather hunting, the Katmai is completely waterproof and has shock-absorbing rubber armor for extra protection. Other key features of the binoculars:
8226; The BK7 prisms are specially treated with L-coat, ensuring bright and sharp images.
8226; The 6x32mm model features an outstanding 8.1 degree field of view.
#8226; Ergonomic body design makes the Katmai comfortable and easy to hold, especially during prolonged viewing.
8226; The 6x32 and 10x32 models weigh 16.0 ounces (455 grams), while the 8x32mm model weighs 16.8 ounces (475 grams). Each model measures 4.1 inches (10.5 centimeters) in length.
