Combining a high magnification and large objectives, Levenhuk's 10x42 Sherman BASE Binoculars are an ideal optic for making detailed observations of distant subjects, even in challenging lighting conditions.

The large lenses draw in a generous amount of light and, combined with the 10x power, translate to a comfortable exit pupil that will completely cover most pupils in low-light conditions such as at dawn or dusk and when peering into heavy brush or canopies. Complementing these performance features are anti-reflection fully coated optics, a wide field of view, and a traditional Porro prism optical path that all work together to produce an immersive and comfortable observational experience that is defined by bright and clear high-contrast views with accurate color rendition and a rich depth of field. The wide field of view also helps to mitigate the appearance of visible hand shake that is common with higher power optics, for clearer views.

For long-duration glassing sessions, to reduce arm fatigue, or to eliminate vibrations, the Sherman BASE binoculars can be tripod mounted using an optional adapter. Their optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to a waterproof IPX6 rating and resistant to internal fogging. The chassis is made of a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy and wrapped in a protective slip-resistant rubber armor. Fold-down rubber eyecups mold themselves to the user's eye sockets to block stray peripheral light for brighter views without intrusive side glare, and the binoculars' center-focusing wheel is also slip resistant to make precision focusing fast and easy.

From the backyard to the backcountry to the stadium, the Levenhuk 10x42 Sherman BASE binoculars give you the ability to see wide areas in all light conditions and weather.
