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

The natural 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 bought this for hunting and it has been the best thing I could of done. I don't have the problems everyone seems to mention. Maybe they fixed the problems. They are a great company and have one of the best ratings in all of the hunting magazine.

        Good compact binoculars

        By Chuck

        from Georgia

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

        I needed a new set of binoculars for bird watching. These had great ratings. They are clear, durable, and compact. I, like others, noted the stiff focus knobs. However, that would only be an issue for my children. B&H had a great price and free shipping. I may get another set for my wife.

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

        These were purchased as "kitchen binoculars" for use around the house to look at birds in the feeder and in the yard. They have a close focus capability and are easy to use for all family members. With their clear view and light weight I will probably also take them into the field. The focus wheel was a little stiff when they were new but it has loosened up.

        Not what I expected from Leupold

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

          I know that this is not Leupold's top of the line, but I expected good quality. The left set of optics has some debris on one of the interior lenses and the coating on the inside of the front lens is obviously defective.

          Only the center portion of the view is usable. The outer 15 to 20% is so fuzzy that you can't make out any details, so the above quality control problems wouldn't make the binoculars worthwhile.

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

              These glasses live up to my expectations. Optics are good and bright. Better than average low light performance. Light weight and comes with a good neck strap. I have not yet exposed the glasses to extremes of cold or wet. Adjustment for eye width and eye relief are excellent. I can use these glasses with or without my eye glasses. I found the center adjustment very difficult to use as if it needs oil or is binding.

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

                The focus wheel on mine was very hard to turn in one direction. It would bind. These binocs gave me eyestrain immediately. The eyecups would not stay up. The quality of the glass itself was great. I contacted Leupold about them via e-mail and never got a response, so I returned them to B&H. I then ordered the Pentax 8x42 DCF CS binocs from B&H and those have great glass and are very comfortable.I have a very narrow IPD of 53mm so only a few binocs work for me. I tried these Leupolds because they are one of the few binocs that fold down narrow enough. The Pentax is another and the only other reasonably priced glass. The only other two are the 8x32 Leica and Zeiss, both of which cost $.
