The BL 8x44 BR Binocular from Minox is designed and crafted to deliver maximum comfort and secure handling. The comfort bridge design allows the user to wrap their hand around the body tube for stable "one-handed" observation. This fine optic checks-in at a lightweight 26 oz., while delivering heavy-weight performance.

Besides being comfortable to hold and use for extended viewing periods, this binocular boasts phase-corrected roof prisms, highly-refined lenses with multi-layer coatings, and a pair of very efficient 44 mm objectives. These optical considerations result in brilliant pin-sharp imagery with accurate color rendition, even under difficult and dynamic lighting conditions.

The BL 8x44 BR offers eyeglass-friendly eye relief along with a pleasingly wide field of view. The housing is constructed from a rugged polycarbonate, and it's completely covered in noise and shock-dampening rubber armoring. Internal fogging is eliminated by nitrogen purging - the entire system is o-ring sealed for waterproof performance to a depth of 5 m/ 16.5'.

    Comments about Minox BL 8x44 BR Binocular:

    I recently picked up a pair of these binoculars for work and am quite satisfied with them given the price. They re comfortable to hold and have a nice, bright image with no noticeable spherical aberration. I do notice eye strain when focusing on close objects, though this is typical of all but the top of the line binoculars. The eyepiece cover is annoying, really only useful when putting them in your bag as it is too cumbersome to be useful in the field (when they'd be really nice to keep rain and dirt off the lenses). Overall I would rate the image quality as distinctly better than some slightly cheaper 8x40 binoculars I've used (e.g., Nikon Monarch and Monarch 5, Pentax DCF WP). However they do fall short of my favorite binoculars (Nikon Venturer LX 8x40s) in terms of image quality and ergonomics. I can live with this though given that the Minox's cost ½ to 1/3 the price of the Venturers.

      Comments about Minox BL 8x44 BR Binocular:

      I bought these binoculars for myself, at the age of 60 after being frustrated by seeing small birds in trees, even close by which had no more colour than a silhouette.
      The clarity and colours are great, and they are easy to use without taking my glasses off.
