Enjoy classic retro styling with the optical performance of modern materials and technology that defines the limited edition Levenhuk 12x45 Heritage BASE Binocular. Made in partnership with the Kazan Optical-Mechanical Plant, the Heritage line sports traditional Porro prisms built with Russian BK10 glass, fully multi-coated optics, a wide field of view, and a powerful magnification. All these features work together to present you with bright and clear high-contrast views, despite the high power, to give you an immersive observational experience. With its powerful magnification, this version of the Heritage BASE is specifically designed for long-range Use.

The Porro prism design creates a naturally ergonomic form factor that is comfortable to hold and evenly balanced, greatly reducing arm fatigue and increasing the viewing experience. Its aluminum chassis is light and durable, and the joints are sealed to keep moisture and dust out. The exterior armoring is textured to give it a slip-resistant grip. Levenhuk includes a soft carrying case, eyepiece caps, and a neck strap.

Whether you're into retro gear or need a nice pair of binoculars for general-purpose glassing, the Heritage BASE is the ideal addition to your gear kit.
