BEAVERTON, Ore.-( Building upon the success of the existing 15×56 model, Leupold & Stevens, Inc. has added 8×42 and 10×42 variants to the BX-5 Santiam HD binocular line for 2018.

“The BX-5 Santiam HD line is purpose-built for the relentless, diehard hunter that may need to glass for hours on end,” said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Whether you’re picking out a sheep on a distant ridgeline or hunting to the very last minute to get a look at that once-in-a-lifetime trophy bull elk, this is the binocular you’ll want at your side.”

The entire BX-5 Santiam HD line features Leupold’s venerable Twilight Max HD light management system – the same one associated with the award-winning VX-5HD and VX-6HD riflescopes – to allow users to glass longer during the early predawn hours to well past dusk. Twilight Max HD combines exceptional light transmission and glare management to provide vivid images and top-of-the-line optical performance in low-light conditions.

A durable, lightweight housing is shrouded in a rubber armor coating that helps protect the binocular and ensure it’s easy to grasp. A large, tactile focus dial is easy to use and find, even with gloved hands. A diopter focus paddle is included to allow consumers to precisely focus the binoculars, compensating for differences between their eyes.

“We received an excellent response to the BX-5 Santiam HD 15×56 model,” said product line manager Zach Bird. “We’re ecstatic to bring the 8×42 and 10×42 models to the market for 2018. They’ll deliver the same high-end, relentless performance worthy of the Leupold brand name.”

The 8×42 and 10×42 BX-5 Santiam HD binocular models will be available in Shadow Gray and Sitka Subalpine finishes. Lens coatings shed water, dirt, oil and fingerprints. A generous, forgiving eyebox is ideal for long glassing sessions. The entire BX-5 Santiam HD line is backed by the legendary Leupold Full Lifetime Guarantee.
