The 8x42 Solitude XD Binocular from Sightmark combines a weather-sealed housing and extra-low dispersion (XD) lens system to create a high-transmission optic for close to mid-range observations. Fully multicoated XD elements and phase-corrected BaK-4 prisms render color faithful images with enhanced brightness, clarity, and contrast. Complementing the premium caliber optics is an impressive 65° apparent viewing angle and a 6.5 ft minimum focus distance.

In addition to the image quality, the Solitude XD binocular has a nitrogen-filled fogproof housing and a range of handling features that equip this optic for years of reliable observation. Although they weigh less than 2 lbs, these lightweight glasses come with a shoulder harness that evenly distributes the binocular's weight and holds the optic relatively close to the wearer's body. A dual-bridge body design and ergonomic indentations with a slip-resistant gripping surface help to balance the binocular in the observer's hands. Rubber armoring, twist-up rubber eyecups, and a long 17mm eye relief that make the Solitude XD binocular a full-featured binocular that is comfortable to use and delivers weather-resistant performance.
