Excellent Image Brightness, Unique Contrasts and Mechanical Performance
CRYSTAL CLEAR VISION
Experience nature in razor-sharp detail
The Leica Ultravid HD-Plus series is a precise combination of state-of-the-art technology, new coating processes, innovative glass materials and the greatest optical know-how.
RESISTANT BY NATURE
Great performers in all situations
The timeless elegant design hides and protects what’s inside: precise mechanisms and the finest optics. The Ultravid HD-Plus binoculars are reliable companions that have been tested under the toughest conditions.
INNOVATIVE AQUADURA® COATING
Protects the optical systems from water, dirt and damage
The AquaDura® coating developed by Leica gives crystal clear vision in any weather and protects the lenses from scratches and abrasion. Raindrops simply roll off. Dirt and fingerprints are easily wiped away.
Leica's 10x42 Ultravid HD-Plus
Customized Binocular gets an elevated upgrade from their standard rubber armor models with calfskin leather wrap on the optical tubes, titanium-colored aluminum accents, and a calfskin leather carrying bag made specifically for this edition. This customized version presents an elegant and refined look while delivering the precision and performance that defines Leica's flagship binocular series.
Like the standard versions, the Customized edition delivers bright and clear high-contrast images across the entire field of view with true color rendition and virtually zero distortion. The mid-range sized objectives deliver extended low-light performance versus smaller versions, while the size and weight are kept reasonable for comfortable all-day use without causing arm or neck fatigue. Helping compensate for the visually distracting hand shake that is common with holding high-power optics such as this, is a wide 64° apparent viewing angle, which allows easy use without the need for stabilization equipment like tripods, monopods, or window mounts when you're glassing on the move and don't have the time to constantly set them up and break them down.
Leica employs specially formulated SCHOTT HT glass, which increases light transmission especially in the blue-violet light band, improves color fidelity, and enhances low-light performance. Scratch- and abrasion-resistant High Durable Coating (HDC) and hydrophobic AquaDura coating on the outer lenses protect surfaces and cause water and oil to bead off for easier cleaning and clearer vision. The roof prisms feature P40 phase correction and proprietary High Lux System (HLS) coatings. These coatings virtually eliminate chromatic aberration for enhanced color rendition and increased contrast.
Complementing the optical performance are uncompromising construction details. To reduce user fatigue during long glassing sessions, the chassis is made of a lightweight yet durable magnesium alloy, with a high-tensile titanium center hinge axle. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled for fogproof performance and sealed to make the binocular submersible to 16 feet. Ergonomic thumb indents on the bottom of the binocular coupled with protective rubber armoring provide a comfortable slip-resistant grip. A lubrication-free focus system provides fast and precise focusing, with PETP-Discs to provide smooth movement throughout the broad operating temperature range.
