Leica's Ultravid line are remarkable roof prism binoculars which exceed even the lofty standards of the Trinovid models, while reducing weight and streamlining the chassis. Ultravids contours feel as immediately comfortable in your hands as does wearing an old pair of jeans, and they couldn't be easier to keep steady on your subject. They're available with rubber armoring in basic black, an attractive military green and occasionally a purist's delight of black pebbled leather.
This 8x42 model features a whopping 5.3mm exit pupil diameter which allows comfortable viewing in all twilight. They're a great choice as an all-around model or for serious birding.
