Opticron 8x42 Countryman BGA HD+ Binocular
Key Features
  • Phase-Corrected Roof Prisms
  • Apparent Angle of View: 56°
  • Nitrogen-Filled Fogproof and Submersible
  • Closed Bridge Configuration
Designed for the discerning birder or nature enthusiast, Opticron's 8x42 Countryman BGA HD+ Binocular delivers bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate lifelike colors through the application of the highly reflective, 64-layer Oasis phase-coating system on the roof prisms. The Countryman is offered here in an 8x power, which provides a nice general-purpose magnification with a generous field of view. Its 42mm objective lenses draw in appreciably more light than smaller objectives increasing image brightness, especially in low-light conditions. The housing is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed, enabling it to withstand use in wet and snowy weather, and the rubberized armor offers protection from impacts while providing a slip-resistant grip. Four-position twist-up eyecups make it comfortable to use with or without eyewear.
