A pair of binoculars are handy equipment to have on outdoor escapades. While most people bring these along to view the action up close when seated ways off in stadiums or concert halls, they also have other versatile uses. Plenty of options are available, but professionals will always tell you not to skimp on the best. Leica is a leading brand for optics, so check out the Trinovid HD.

It’s evident from the design, that the German manufacturer has engineered a robust no-nonsense tool. Under the series, you have four SKUs to suit every need. Choose from the 10×32, 8×32, 10×42, and 8×42 models. According to the product page, the “Trinovid” name is derived from “three novel innovations.”

These are superior optical performance, ergonomic construction, and true internal focusing. The elements can be unpredictable. Moreover, in some instances, we might accidentally drop or bump our gear into hard objects. Meanwhile, the Trinovid HD easily brushes these off.

The housing or lens on an average pair of binoculars would probably shatter or deform upon impact. Leica, on the other hand, accounts for these situations and incorporates light yet durable materials and a textured surface to improve our grip.

Your Trinovid HD encases all of the sensitive components within a watertight enclosure. Leica claims it will survive immersion in up to 13.1 feet of water, but we highly recommend you avoid moisture at all costs. The combination of its weight and shape is great for long viewing sessions.

As with any product sold by Leica, the signature red dot with white script is the only vibrant contrast you get from its otherwise stealthy colorway. The Trinovid HD ships with a contoured neoprene carrying strap, neoprene case, eyepiece caps, and front lens caps.
