The black 8x42 BX-2 Cascades Binocular from Leupold combines ergonomic handling and fully multicoated optics to create a general purpose set of glasses that is well-equipped to transmit a detail-rich field of view while enduring the outdoors. For the BX-2 Cascades series, Leupold employs their L-Coat anti-reflective lens coating to maximize light transmission and enhance image contrast. Complementing the lens system are phase-corrected BaK4 prisms that render lifelike colors and impressive sharpness. Twist-up rubber eyecups and a long 18mm eye relief outfit the binocular for a comfortable viewing experience even while wearing eyeglasses.

In addition to its noteworthy optical performance, the BX-2 Cascades binocular also features a weather-resistant housing that is nitrogen-filled and built to perform in extreme humidity and heavy rainfall. When conditions turn wet or cold, several of the binocular's features will help the observer maintain their grip; including textured rubber armoring and rubberized ridges on the focus wheel. In addition to its user-friendly handling and optical performance, the BX-2 Cascades has a 10 ft minimum focus, making this a well-rounded optic for close to mid-range observations.
