Leupold's Northfork Series binoculars, available in 8.5x45 and 10.5x45 models, have a slim hinge near the eyecups instead of near the objective lenses, a design that lets you hold them around the barrels.
The multicoated 45mm objective lenses let in more light and combine with the Super High Reflection BAK-4 prisms for bright, crisp images. Long eye relief is a blessing for eyeglass wearers. Waterproof and fogproof, the new Northfork binos come with a case, padded neckstrap, and lens covers
