What customers say about "Key Specs"
Leica Trinovid HD 10 X 42 Binocular with Adventure Strap
  • We love Leica brand. they are of supreme optical quality. Very well made, give very bright and clear views.
  • My casual observances with these binoculars I own have shown me that you can have over 90% of the viewing experience and spend 50% less. The Leica Trinovid HD is an excellent view.
  • They give a sharp, clear image. I purchased them through Amazon from Leica dealer A+ Accessories, and was able to register them with Leica and receive their factory warranty.
  • I just received this Leica Binocular, and is my third Leica Binocular. It is so compact and nice to hold, super sharp images.
  • Great binoculars but the adventure strap-case is really only useful if your hiking or hunting.

  • In addition to the high-end optics, you are also getting the lifetime, no questions asked, full warranty on these binoculars.
  • The best binoculars I've owned or seen so far. Perfect clarity, true colors, very bright and so on.
  • These binoculars are optically the best I have owned. Only drawback is the price, but worth it if you want this level of quality.
  • Given as a gift & loved by the recipient. The last pair of binos they'll need for the rest of their life-quoted
  • Good optics but they should be for how much money you have to shell out.

What customers say about "Features"
Leica Trinovid HD 10 X 42 Binocular with Adventure Strap
  • The bag that comes with the binoculars are very handy as well.
  • I have three other pairs of Leica Trinovid binoculars, and these are the lightest and easiest to use.
  • Once you adjust the binocular to fit between the eyeballs, there are no circle, just perfectly super sharp image. I will carry this for my global travel trips.
  • The cups are linked to a band that supposed to fit tight on the end of the binoculars, but they slip off and thus the cup is lost.
  • Stupid and very ugly neoprene black bag attached to it cannot be removed.

  • Light weight, comfortable ergonomics ,and rubber coating keeps my hands warmer in cold weather than competing rubber coating bino's.
  • Excellent glass and rugged built. A bit heavier that other comparable models but I use a full harness rather than neck strap so it is not impactful for me in the field.
  • They also have the ruberied body versus the hard plastic. Another nice feature.
  • They are a little heavier, but not noticeable especially if you used them with a harness. These fit the bill for an "all purpose" binocular.
  • Great clarity at all light conditions
