The comfort bridge ensures convenient handling and a firm grip, even under extreme conditions. This open design enables safe, single-handed operation allowing more freedom to move when out hunting or observing nature. The binoculars of the BL series are of a particularly light-weight design, this also being indicated by the letter "L" in the product name. Additional highlights of the BL series are its ergonomic features and the rubber armored body of polycabonate that is extremely robust and weather-resistant.
The MINOX BL 8x33 also features a specially developed sealing technology that makes it watertight to a depth of down to five meters. Thanks to a nitrogen gas filling, there is no fogging of the optical surfaces, even under severe temperature fluctuations and a clear view is guaranteed at all times.
A high-quality optical system with multicoated lens elements provides superb light-gathering power and images with an exceptionally neutral color rendition of the objects in view. Thanks to the roof prisms with phase-correction coating, the user is presented an image with high clarity and pin-sharp contrast, even in bad lighting.
The individual requirements of people wearing eyeglasses are also fully accounted for. With the extended eye relief, the entire field of view can be enjoyed without vignetting, even if wearing spectacles. Twisting retractable rubber eyecups with individual click stops are another convenient feature of all MINOX BL binoculars.
The scope of delivery of the MINOX BL 8x33 includes a nylon strap as well as an ever-ready case.
