Additionally, a centrally positioned tripod socket allows for tripod attachment with the use of an adaptor. The sleek and tactile body ensures a fantastic experience when using these binoculars in the field.

Built for the outdoors

In addition to durability, Kowa has created the SV II Series to be completely optimized for all weather conditions. By sealing all body joints and cavities, the binoculars are made fully waterproof. Kowa's engineers have also sealed each barrel with nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging and lens damage caused by fluctuating temperatures.

Brilliant Birdwatching BInoculars

Have been using these binoculars for the past few weeks now and couldn't be happier with them. Build quality is phenomenal and the clarity and brightness of image is seriously impressive. Was a little worried that they'd be on the heavy side but they are incredibly lightweight and very comfortable to wear round my neck for few hours use. I love the wide field of view. HIghly recommend

Absolutely delighted with them

After weeks of researching, and reading reviews I decided to purchase this rather than a pair of Opticron's which had picked up some award and many decent reviews. But there is a maxim "pay as much as you can afford on binos" so in the end I opted for this more expensive pair, which has excellent reviews. I have had them now for a couple of weeks and have not been disappointed. The image clarity is superb with no fringes on edges of birds. They feel well made and are fairly lightweight considering the size - miles better than my old pair of Nikon binos they replaced.

The focus action is effortless and smooth, and it comes with a good carry case for transportation and storage. The dioptric adjustment is firm and stays where it has been adjusted to. The image is bright and sometimes brighter than with the naked eye thanks to the larger 42mm lens. I simply can't fault them!


I can't recommend these binoculars highly enough! Brilliant quality

Expensive but worth it

Great binoculars for birdwatching. Well made and comfortable to use. Focus wheel is excellent and the quality of glass is impressive. Very happy
