Leupold BX-3 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring extra-low dispersion glass, their proprietary Xtended Twilight (XT) Lens System, and phase corrected BAK4 prisms, Leupold's gray 8x42 BX-3 Mojave Pro Guide HD Binocular delivers images with breath-taking color, clarity, and contrast. The lenses are made of lead-free high-transmittance calcium fluoride glass, which by their nature, limit reflection and increase color fidelity and contrast. The XT system complements the glass through the use of index-matched lens coatings that were specifically engineered for the calcium-fluoride lenses to raise the already high transmittance across the entire visible spectrum — with special emphasis on the blue and violet wavelengths that are most prevalent in low-light, such as at dawn and dusk and under heavily-canopied forests.

Designed for a life lived outdoors the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to make them water and fogproof, even when moving through extreme temperature variations. The chassis is made from an aluminum alloy to make it lightweight and corrosion-resistant. To further cut weight, and to give users more gripping area, Leupold employs an open bridge configuration with a dual-hinge. Its oversized and knurled center focusing wheel allows for sharp focusing even while wearing gloves.

    Leupold BX-3 reviews

    8x42 BX-3 Mojave Pro Guide HD Binocular (Shadow Gray) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Close! Very Close, but not an HD GOLD RING The BX 3 HD Mohave is very good, in fact it is second best pair I own! The very best pair I own and love is the now discontinued Gold Ring HD 10x42. The gold rings are heavier, have a center hinge and the diopter adjustment is not as user friendly as the Mojave. BUT, the clarity of the gold rings is slightly sharper and slightly superior to the Mojave. I do have to admit that the lighter weight, open bridge, and the very user friendly diopter adjustment on the Mojave is a real advantage. But what do you buy binoculars for?? TO LOOK THROUGH!! Not to admire. C'mon LEUPOLD, slap a golden ring on the Mojave, assemble it in Oregon and upgrade the lenses to the quality of the gold ring HDs. Remember, Winchester screwed up royally when they dropped the pre 64 line of firearms, COLT screwed up when they dropped the Python, don't follow their lead LEUPOLD, bring back the gold ring HD BINOCULARS.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be Happier This is my first pair of quality binoculars and I couldn't be happier. I looked at many different models and manufacturers when deciding on what binocular I wanted to buy. In the end I kept coming back to the Mojave Pro guides because of the optical quality as well as the reliability of the Leupold name. I have used these quite a bit and the clarity of the optics is amazing. The details you are able to see with these is absolutely incredible. They are absolutely crystal clear with no blurriness to the image and the colors are deep and vivid. The open bridge body makes the binoculars very lightweight and they are balanced very well. I love how small and compact they are for being a full size 8 by 42 binocular. Overall I am extremely happy with these binoculars and would definately recommend them.
