Leupold 172700 overview

  • 1Description

Leupold's 10x42 BX-2 Acadia Binocular utilizes phase-corrected and dielectric-coated BAK 4 roof prisms, with anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics to produce crisp and clear high-contrast images with minimal distortion and accurate color rendition. The 10x magnification is ideal for resolving detail in heavy brush or at long distances where accurate identification is critical. With a comfortable 15.5mm eye relief and wide 70° apparent angle of view, the typical limitations of higher power binoculars, such as visible hand-shake, are virtually eliminated.

Built for the rigors of constant outdoor use, the housing features a gray armored exterior that protects the binocular from drops and impacts, while its textured surface provides a slip-resistant grip. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes or conditions. Tripod-mountable with optional an optional adapter, twist-up eyecups and a locking right-eye dioptric adjustment make the Acadia a comfortable and easy-to-use optic.

    10x42 BX-2 Acadia Binocular (Shadow Gray) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the $$ After looking for a good pair of binoculars at a couple of stores we decided we liked the Leupold BX-2 Acadia Binocular best for our needs - watching elk and just traveling around. They are light weight and smaller than most, however they are very sharp and easily focused. ALSO, the stores were much more expensive than B&H ($90+). One store even tried to match the website and came within $$. We decided to order from B&H because they always stand behind the product with the already BEST PRICE!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bird watching glasses I bought two pairs for my daughter and myself. for bird watching and general wildlife watching. They are a bit smaller than some other glasses, but that's okay. We are small folks. The images are very sharp and clear. The rubber casing s thick enough you feel like if you dropped them that they would be protected. Plus the casing gives you a good grip. I like that both sets of lens caps are attached. That sold me right away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again Great binos at a great price. I tried these out in a Gander Mountain store that was going out of business, and really liked them. Gander had them marked at 10% off, and I still saved over $50 buying them at B&H. Just used them on a 7 day Alaskan cruise, and they did not disappoint. Everyone in our group was reaching for them when there was something to look at.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Glass These are very good binoculars. I have had a pair for several years and have used them for everything from hunting to general observation. The low light transmission and clarity make these quite capable for dawn and dusk viewing. I have used a lot of different binoculars over the years. I always recommend these when I am asked about what to buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Like These Have only used a handful of times, but the optics are great - I don't care where they were made. Just an FYI, they are better looking than the photo here. Will be taking these out on a trip to the Pacific for some humpback whale and dolphin viewing, really looking forward to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome binoculars! B&H had these binoculars cheaper than anyone else on the internet, plus free shipping! They took a bit longer to receive than expected but communication was good and they were worth the wait.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Outstanding optics for the money! Very clear and a great asset while hunting.
