Leupold has launched its BX-4 Pro Guide HD Gen 2 binocular line. The new line is an upgrade over its predecessor in both form and function, taking advantage of high-quality glass and improved lens coatings to deliver the resolution, clarity and glare reduction diehard hunters and shooters demand. No matter the time of day, harsh light and bright reflections will be less of a problem.

A new addition with the Gen 2 design is the option of swappable, Form-Fit eyecups designed to keep eyes fresh through hours of glassing.

“The original BX-4 Pro Guide HD was one of the best-selling binoculars we’ve ever had,” said Zach Bird, product line manager for Leupold. “We took the bones of that model and put them through an upgrade with the new BX-4 Pro Guide HD Gen 2. What you’re getting is a binocular that delivers incredible performance and value, the best in its class.”

Four configurations of the binocular will be available at launch: 8x42mm, 10x42mm, 10x50mm and 12x50mm. All feature the upgraded optical design and Form-Fit eyecups. The BX-4 Pro Guide HD Gen 2’s body, meanwhile, provides comfortable hand placement with an open-bridge, slim-hinge design.

The lightweight aluminum body is crafted for ruggedness, and Guard-ion lens coatings shed dirt and water for clearer viewing.

The BX-4 Pro Guide HD Gen 2 binocular line is waterproof, fogproof, and guaranteed to perform for life. For more information on Leupold products, please visit leupold.comMSRP: $599.99-$769.99
