The SV 8x32 Binocular (Black) from Kowa Sporting Optics has a traditional roof prism design offering enhanced three-dimensional imaging, less light loss and generally sharper images. Full multi-coated lenses ensure crisp, clear images with maximum brightness while the Kowa KR coating inhibits reflections and increases resolution. Phase coating adjusts the color spectrum so that color fringing is eliminated and true color is transmitted. The optical enhancements were engineered into the binocular without sacrificing the nitrogen filled waterproofing and fogproofing. A stylish and smooth housing with rounded curving edges and strategically placed hand-holds make this binocular a visually pleasing item both to look thorough and look at. Twist-up eyecups customize the viewing experience personal preference with or without eye or sunglasses. Rubber armoring provides a secure and comfortable grip, as well as added shock-resistance. This binocular is an economic answer to possession of a feature filled binocular.
