Along with a welcome response to their first Comfort Bridge binoculars, MINOX discovered a demand for variations. Even with its light weight, some asked for an even sleeker version for many extended viewing applications, such as surveillance. Now it’s available – the new BL 8×33 Comfort Bridge binocular.

Distinctive MINOX styling gives new meaning to “open bridge” and delivers the practical ergonomic advantages of enhanced comfort and secure handling, all with the welcome light weight of just 22.9 oz., which will be greatly appreciated during any lengthy observation, including viewing hazardous materials scenes from a distance.

Lightweight and trim, yet the rubber-armored body made of space-age polycarbonate is extremely rugged and impervious to weather, from 14° to 122° F, rain or snow. The BL 8×33 also features a sophisticated sealing technology, so it’s waterproof to more than 16 feet.

The high-quality MINOX optical system has phase-corrected roof prisms, coupled with multi- coated lens elements, ensuring brilliant, pin-sharp images with natural color rendition, even in challenging low-light situations. To capture moving objects fast and reliably, it has an exceptionally large field of view – 420 feet at 1,000 yards.

A nitrogen filling provides corrosion resistance and prevents fogging of the glass surfaces, even with severe temperature fluctuations. With extended eye relief and click-stop, twist-up retractable rubber eyecups, this new MINOX Comfort Bridge binocular meets the needs of eyeglass wearers, so they can see the entire field without vignetting. It comes with a nylon strap and a carrying case. With all of these advantages, the retail price is $469.
