Kowa Binoculars

The Kowa XD binoculars have impressive specifications:

  • Prominar XD lenses - these are Kowa’s first binoculars to use the technology of the latest
    spotting scopes. This advanced technology creates a bright image with high contrast and
    remarkable colour reproduction.
  • Phase coated roof prisms ensure sharp images and outstanding contrast.
  • High refractive index prism gives a wide field of view with edge to edge sharpness and
    minimal loss of light.
  • Magnesium alloy body is lightweight but rugged.
  • Waterproof and filled with dry nitrogen gas.
  • Kowa C3 coating on the prisms allows for higher reflectivity across the entire visible
    spectrum (400-700nm)

These are the best top-end binoculars we have seen, excellent image quality; bright, sharp with precise focusing and exceptional colour transmission. We have no hesitation in highly recommending the Kowa XD binoculars.

I have seen the 8.5x44 Kowa binoculars and to me they are better than the Leica, Zeiss and Swarovski models I compared them to. Unfortunately, my local dealer has said they will not be stocking the 10.5x version. Can I come and see through yours?

I find it odd that a dealer would only stock the 8.5x!

Yes, please feel free to come and have a look (and lets be honest, hopefully buy a pair!), please give us a call to check stocks before travelling.

The Kowa Prominar XD 10.5x44 to me are just as bright and sharp as the 8.5x, both are excellent binoculars. I agree with your comments regarding Kowas competitors, optically the Kowa look better than those you mention.
