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.

    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.

    Good view but strap is poorly designed

    Binocular has very clear view and easy to look through. But the neck strap provided can not be attached to the binocular because of very tight rings and small hooks.

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

          I'm fairly new to binoculars, so I won't talk about technical aspects, like experienced people do. I will just say this: For anybody who is getting "into" binoculars, I would recommend the purchase of at least one good porro prism binocular, and you're not going to go wrong by making this binocular that one. The compact size, and the clarity, sharpness, and color rendition, along with the cost, make this Leupold Yosemite almost impossible to beat. I'm fortunate to live in a scenic area, and my Yosemite 6x30 works beautifully for mountains, lakes, wildlife, you name it. Oh yeah, don't underestimate a 6 power bino. Especially when it comes to this one. I could go on and on. Just do your research on the Leupold Yosemite, and look at all of the favorable reviews. This binocular is a classic.

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

          Very high quality entry level binoculars. Feel great in the hands, clear images through the glass. Usually binoculars give me a headache after using them for a little while and these didn't do that. I'm very happy with them.

            My wife and I wear glasses. I wanted a product with plenty of eye relief and was quick to focus. These work perfectly for bird and wildlife observation from our house. I like the collapsible eye cups for when we don't have our glasses on.
            Lightweight and fairly compact. Center focus knob is fast and has good grip.

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

              I have a bird feeder that is about 20 feet from where I watch it from inside the house. I bought the 6x30 BX-1 Yosemite because is is specified to focus to a minimum of 10 feet. I'm impressed! The depth of field, clarity, and image size at focus on the feeder is wonderful for watching my little feathered friends. The included neckstrap is very comfortable and the included belt pouch will be handy when I take them with me on a walk in the woods with my dog. My old 7x35 binoc just would not focus that close, and I'd recommend the Yosemite for anyone who wants to watch birds that are not far away.

              I bought these based on a YouTube review. Been using a pair of binoculars my Dad bought 20 years ago. These not only are extremely accurate with crisp clear imagery but can gather light even after dark. I intend to use them for deer and turkey hunting this year.

                I am used tabuing cheap binoculars since I was a kid. I wanted something to get started with deer hunting and did not want to spend $ on premium glass. Did a lot of research via hunting and fishing magazine article and other online reviews of this product and could not pass up these for the price. Quite happy with my initial introduction to these binoculars and expect them to be everything and more that I read about.

                  I purchased these to replace a pair of vortex diamondback 7x32's. I use them for hunting only and needed something rugged and clear in low light in the woods. Being less then half the price of the vortex, my expectations were low, but I have ben pleasantly surprised. I really like the size and the fact that they aren't too heavy for a porro prism design. Although I am no expert they seem to be just as bright and clear as my previous binos. The only criticism I have is that the focus wheel is a little stiff, but I think it will loosen up with use.

                      These binoculars are spectacular. Very good optics make them a joy to use. And at such a low price! They are lightweight and compact, which makes them easily transportable and consequently are the binoculars I reach for most often. The only minor criticism is that the focus wheel sticks when it hasn't been moved for a day or so. The stickiness goes away quickly, however, and may indeed disappear altogether in the warmer summer months. You will love these bins!

                        I just recently tried the Steiner M-30 bino that cost $. They were not impressive, I sent them back. Bought the 6x30 Yosemite due to all the positive reviews. They are great! Sharp, clear, and bright in low light. They beat my old Leupold Windriver 7x30s in all areas. The right eye diopter adjustment is very stiff but once it's set, you're good to go. These will go deer hunting this fall as the last 30 minutes of legal shooting time is when the most activity takes place. They shouldn't be this good being Chinese and this cheap, but they are. The warranty is good too. Also, I wear glasses, with these binos and the eyecups down, I can get a wide field of view.

                        Bought these binoculars off the recommendation of an article published in the American Hunter. This binocular was first choice. I understand why. These we're purchased for my wife for our 44 th anniversary and she loves them. We live in the country and she loves to watch all the wild game that appears or resides here. Nothing complicated and well priced. I would highly recommend these binoculars. R P Immokalee Fl.

                              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!!
