The Opticron 8x42 Verano BGA HD Binocular is a phase-corrected, multi-coated roof prism binocular that also features Opticron's Oasis Prism Coating to help maximize light transmission over a broad color spectrum. A 5.25mm exit pupil offers a bright view even at dawn or dusk, and with a rubberized body that offers protection from bumps and impacts, it is suitable for birders, hunters, and wildlife enthusiasts.

A nitrogen-filled, waterproof design allows the 8x42 Verano BGA HD Binocular to be submerged up to 9.8 ft for peace of mind while using it aboard a boat or during inclement weather. An open bridge configuration facilitates easy one-handed use, as weight between the lenses is minimized and adjustments to the center focus knob and twist-type eyecups can be made with the same hand gripping the binocular.

Eyeglass wearers can appreciate the 8x42 Verano BGA HD Binocular's 22.0mm eye relief as well as its right side ±3 diopter. For use with a binocular tripod mount, 1/4"-20 threads are built-in, and aside from a neck strap, a soft leather case, and a rainguard, two lens caps also are also included.
