Leupold's BX-3 Mojave line of binoculars launched a few years back, and ultimately came to be regarded as a great option for open-country glass at a reasonable price. At SHOT Show 2017, the company announced the latest iteration of its BX-3 Mojave line, which would be known as the BX-3 Mojave Pro Guide HD series. I had the opportunity to work with a Pro Guide HD model while on a winter turkey hunt in Kansas. Here are five things you need to know.

They sport all the original BX-3 Mojave line perks.
The BX-3 Mojave line, as a whole, features an open bridge design that's meant to be lightweight, ergonomic and easy to use. They're rugged and waterproof, and come back with Leupold's Lifetime Limited Warranty. That's all still present—or, in some cases, improved upon—in the Pro Guide series.

They feature High-Definition Glass
What Leupold has upgraded, though, is the glass. The Pro Guide series is advertised as bringing high-definition performance to the BX-3 Mojave line. Specially coated extra-low dispersion lenses are meant to offer enhanced resolution and color to help identify game in thick brush.

They're even more durable.
The Pro Guide series adds "fog proof" to its list of attributes, and ships with Leupold's Gold Ring Full Lifetime Guarantee. Not a bad deal.

Three variants are available.
The Pro Guide HD 10x42 model is available in Kryptek Typhon (pictured above), Krptek Highlander and a simple Shadow Gray.

Its price point is firmly mid-tier.
With an MSRP of $779.99 for the camouflage models, the Mojave Pro Guide HD binos are comfortably middle-of-the-pack price wise. Can't argue with that.
