Kowa Genesis 8.5x44 Prominar XD Binoculars with Harness

The Kowa Genesis 44 8.5x44 XD Waterproof Binoculars are the best in Kowa's line of roof prism binoculars. Designed with Kowa’s premium ED glass and C3 optical multi-coatings, the Genesis 44 Binoculars deliver crisp, clear colors and ultra high resolution in any environment.  They also boast an impressive 99% transmissivity of each element between 400 and 700 nm, making them perfect for bird spotting.

Like the rest of Kowa’s Genesis series, the Genesis 44 8.5x44 XD Waterproof Binoculars are built around a lightweight and extremely rugged magnesium frame. They are built to perform in even the most extreme environments and are entirely waterproof and fogproof. They can also focus down to an amazing 5.5' and the 44mm objective lens provides a clearer, brighter view.

Features

Kowa's Premium XD Glass Lenses
Kowa's XD (eXtra-Low Dispersion) Glass combines high-performance optical glass and special concave dispersion lenses to dramatically reduce the color blur present in standard optical glass clearly showcasing almost imperceptible details and subtle changes in color. Added together with its backlight and low-light capabilities, even a beginner can recognize the difference in quality between Kowa's High-End Prominar XD Glass and other top competitors. 
   
Lightweight Magnesium Alloy Body
The magnesium alloy body is formed using advanced thixomolding technology which provides the benefits of a high strength metal body in a lightweight magnesium alloy structure. The durability and reliability of these binoculars can withstand the most severe conditions which provide users the greatest degree of confidence.

Schmidt-Pechan Phase Coated Roof Prism Lens and C3 Coating
Kowa's roof prism binoculars use a Schmidt-Pechan prism. One surface of the Pechan prism does not provide total reflection, so a highly reflective C3 coating has been applied. This allows for higher reflectivity than with silver or optically enhanced aluminum which offers a 99% or higher reflectance across the entire visible spectrum (400-700nm). This not only provides bright and sharp images but also accurate color reproduction.

Phase Coated Roof Prism 
Phase coated roof prism - The Schmidt prism roof surface is phase corrected to ensure sharp images and outstanding contrast.
 
KR Protective Coating 
Kowa's KR coating protects the lenses from dirt and other foreign residue that affix to the lenses during normal use. Even in cases where the lens is accidentally touched, fingerprints or oil can easily be removed through proper lens cleaning methods.
 
All-Surface Multicoating 
Multi-Coated Optical System provides precise color definition for a brighter and sharper image. All lenses, prisms, and dustproof glass are fully multicoated, ensuring sharp images and a clear visual range.

Waterproof & Fogproof
The Genesis housing is waterproof to JIS Protection Class 7 and filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging for clear viewing in any weather. 
 
Twist-Up Eyecups 
Twist-up multi-step eyecups allow easy viewing even when wearing eyeglasses.
