Leupold 172703 overview

  • 1Description

The Leupold Shadow Gray 6x30 BX-1 Yosemite Binocular features a compact form-factor outfitted with traditional BAK4 Porro prisms and a fully multi-coated optical path to display more depth of field than similar roof prism designs. The resulting images transmitted by the Yosemite binocular have lifelike depth and are crisp and clear with high-contrast and accurate colors across the field of view.

A nitrogen-filled housing provides a fogproof performance, while its rubber armoring and textured ridges deliver a slip-resistant grip. A broad interpupillary adjustment range allows the Yosemite to be comfortably used by those with smaller faces, such as children or young adults. Twist-up eyecups and a long 18mm eye relief help to provide a comfortable viewing distance for all users. This version of the Yosemite comes with a carrying case, neck strap, and lens cloth.

    Leupold 172703 reviews

    6x30 BX-1 Yosemite Binocular (Shadow Gray) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6x30 BX-1 Yosemite Binocular 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for birds 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Leupold! Purchased for upcoming deer season, needing something affordable and compact. Great field of view. Crystal clear images. Very easy to focus and the adjustable eye cups work very well, especially if you wear glasses. Low light visit on is very good. Of course the compact size and weight are exactly what I was looking for. This is an exceptional value, especially considering the waterproof feature, and Leupold's lifetime warranty. At the regular marl it is well worth it. At the sale price it was an amazing buy. But then it's a Leupold. Every Leupold product I have ever owned had exceeded my expectations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Leupold 6X30 BX-1 Binocular 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Buy 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected from Leupold 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent binocular 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toy sized but not a toy 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.
