Improved does not adequately describe all the upgrades found in the Kowa BD XD 42mm binocular. Prominar XD objective lenses significantly decrease chromatic aberration and deliver high-contrast images. Enhancements to the BD XD binocular design include additional eye relief, an expanded field of view, a 4.9 feet close focus, a smaller and lighter size, and rugged magnesium housing. Add it all up and no matter how you use it, the Kowa BD XD is built to excel.

Kowa BD XD handy glass - 06/08/2015

by Ray C. from Long Island, NY

I picked up a pair of Kowa BD XD 10x42s a while back. These binos are small and compact for what is considered to be "full size". I have accumulated several other pairs over the years including Kowa genesis 44s that are truly excellent, more solid feeling but bigger and heavier. Truth be told, these little BD XDs are the ones I reach for most often to take to events or to have along on a hike. They are made in China but nonetheless handle well and have a very clear / bright image quality that doesn't disappoint in the least.

My initial disappointment once I recieved these kowas was the "made in China" on the box.I thought I had researched enough before ordering that they were made in Japan,as I had determined for years never to purchase Chinese made binos. However.. after using these for several days hunting in Wyoming, I found they are excellent glasses. I have had a pair of swarovski 10x 42 for years and loved them except for the extreme weight of over 31oz. The kowas are about 23 oz, compact, edge to edge clear and very bright optically. the focus knob is smooth and quick but feels a bit cheap .I had the chance to compare them against a friends swaros 10x32 els, we were viewing an elk herd over 2 miles away at dusk, the swaros were a bit more defined in the dimming light but overall the differences were not great between the two. I have decided to keep these as they fit the bill of what I was looking for in price ,quality and value.
