Product Highlights
  • BaK4 Porro Prisms
  • Fully Multicoated Optics
  • Center Focus Wheel
  • Nitrogen-Filled Fogproof / Waterproof
  • Twist-Up Rubber Eyecups
  • Rubber Armored Body

The black 6x30 BX-1 Yosemite Binocular from Leupold is a compact optic featuring a Porro prism design and a fully multicoated optical path. Leupold outfitted this binocular with BaK4 prism glass, and its Porro prism configuration displays more depth of field than roof prism designs. The resulting images transmitted by the Yosemite binocular have lifelike depth and are crisp across the field of view.

A nitrogen-filled housing equips the Yosemite binocular for fogproof performance while its rubber armoring and textured ridges deliver a slip-resistant grip. Additionally, the binocular has a broad interpupillary adjustment range—its 50mm minimum interpupillary distance allows the Yosemite binocular to comfortably fit most children. Twist-up eyecups and an 18mm eye relief help to provide a comfortable viewing distance for children and adults alike.

            Comments about Leupold 6x30 BX-1 Yosemite Binocular (Black):

            I did some fairly intensive research before purchasing these binoculars, reading several different reviews on several different independent websites (being careful to avoid "reviews" which are really just advertisements). The reviews for these binoculars were strongly positive almost without qualification, and everything about them is as they said:- quality lenses with great light and sharp images- seemingly durable and attractive build- high-quality components and performance at low-end prices (I got these for a measly $ from B&H, far below the original retail value of $/)- great for little hands and faces: the kids love using them to look at birds, the moon, etc.- twist-up eye cups are great for quick transition between folks with glasses and those without- great neck-strap included (neoprene, I think!)- all backed by the Leupold name and customer care!I and the family will use them for casual wildlife viewing and later hunting, and they seem to be just right for these and a wide range of applications.I have no complaints, though the focus knob is a bit sticky at first--one just has to give a little extra muscle, and it "unsticks" smoothly and gently.

              Small enough to easily manipulate for the games. Magnification (even at 6x) may be a bit strong but the image is crystal clear. Big advancement over my 8 year old bushnells.

                I have several binoculars that cost 1 1/2 to 2 times what I paid for these. These offer better overall clarity, less distortion (esp at the edges) and smoother adjustment than any of the others I have had experience with. The size is very good for archery hunting.

                  I am very pleased with my Leupold Yosemite Binoculars. I use them primarily, at the shooting range and for varmint hunting. They are exactly what I would expect from Leupold. The only negative feature was attaching the neck strap, but even that was a minor inconvenience. All in all, a quality product that I highly recommend.

                  These binoculars are clear and sharp even in low light conditions. Their lightweight and size make them ideal for hunting. I would have given them 5 stars if the eyecups were a little more solid, they slide down too easily. Overall a great product!!

                      I have owned a pair of the 6x30 Yosemites for three months and liked them so much I bought another pair. They are light enough to take on my two mile hike at the local nature preserve, very clear and bright, and I don't have to take off my graduated bifold eyeglasses to look through the binoculars. No complaints so far.

                      Just purchased for grandson who will be only 6, but already can identify several bird species using the $20 binocs I bought him a year ago. Appreciate that they will fit his small face and appear sturdy (time will tell). Focus did not seem terribly smooth, but overall seem to be a great value. In a couple years will buy him my favorite -- Bushnell Custom Compact (mine are 35 years old}. I have purchased several newer versions of this binoc for other family members.

                        Small tough and beautifully constructed. Got these for my teenage daughter and wife - both are very petit with small hands. Both are thrilled. Very good optics and clarity. Good culmination. Star gazing, kayaking, hiking ... much easier for them to carry and manipulate. Myself, I find them very convenient compared to my full size bino's. Overall less bulk with no performance loss. Presently, I am deployed with one conveniently kept in my cargo pants pocket or canteen holder on my kit.
