Burris Optics' Signature HD 15x56mm joins the original 8x42mm, 10x42mm and 12x50mm Signature HD models to provide hunters with a full range of optics to meet every adventure. With its 15X magnification, the Signature HD 15x56mm brings even the farthest animals in close. Designed for hunters glassing distant game, the newest Signature HD binocular delivers an expansive field of view and low-light visibility.

Featuring Bak-4 glass, with Phase Correct, dielectric coating found on the prisms, the Signature HD 15x56mm delivers excellent resolution, color fidelity and light transmission, and boasts the same manufacturing and quality offered in the 8x, 10x, and 12x binoculars. Precision-ground lenses follow "performance-first" construction, and include Hi-Lume Index-matched multi-coating to further boost clarity and light transmission, and to eliminate glare. To ensure the view is always clear, the binoculars are nitrogen-filled for reliable waterproof and fog-proof performance.

Since the Signature HD 15x56mm is intended to give hunters the broad visibility and far-reaching magnification demanded in open country, it follows that Signature HD binoculars are built to take everything the most austere western environments can dish out. To that end, the Signature HD 15x56mm features an ultra-rugged, shockproof body that can suck up the hard knocks, along with a tough rubber armor that offers additional protection and impact absorption. Every Signature HD bino includes a tripod adapter mount on the bridge for stable observation when fine details matter.

An integrated no-slip texturing makes the Signature HD 15x56mm suitable for everything from hot, early-season antelope hunts to frigid, late-season mule deer and elk adventures. Add in a neoprene neck strap and stout, metal eyecups for eye-relief adjustment and the binocular system becomes a reliable partner whether on foot, on horseback or cruising in the ranch truck.
