Opticron's black 8x42 DBA VHD+ Binoculars balance optical performance with rugged construction details to create versatile binoculars that are as at home in the stadium as they are in the woods or on the boat. They feature the proprietary VHD+ optical system that combines extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, phase-corrected prisms with Oasis prism coating, anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, and a field-flattener lens system to produce bright, high-contrast images with neutral color fidelity and virtually zero distortion across the entire field of view. Employing the iconic combination of 8x magnification and 42mm objectives keeps the bulk down, so they are comfortable to carry in a pack or around the neck while offering an immersive field of view and competent low-light performance.

Opticron's black 8x42 DBA VHD+ Binoculars balance optical performance with rugged construction details to create versatile binoculars that are as at home in the stadium as they are in the woods or on the boat. They feature the proprietary VHD+ optical system that combines extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, phase-corrected prisms with Oasis prism coating, anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, and a field-flattener lens system to produce bright, high-contrast images with neutral color fidelity and virtually zero distortion across the entire field of view. Employing the iconic combination of 8x magnification and 42mm objectives keeps the bulk down, so they are comfortable to carry in a pack or around the neck while offering an immersive field of view and competent low-light performance.

The binoculars are designed with an open-bridge dual-hinge configuration that helps to reduce weight without sacrificing strength, while offering a more secure grip by allowing your fingers to wrap around the optical tubes. To withstand the elements, the housing is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for waterproof and fogproof performance in even the most extreme weather. Black rubber armoring provides protection from drops and impacts, as well as adding to their slip-resistant grip. For long-duration glassing sessions, the DBA VHD+ has a concealed tripod adapter mount to attach them to a stable support system.
