See the world through premium glass
Leica's lightweight and compact high-performance Ultravid HD-Plus 10x42 binoculars show you the world in crystal-clear focus.
Leica optics are among the best in the world. Their Ultravid 10x42 HD-Plus binoculars feature top-notch glass and coatings coupled with design refinements that reflect Leica's 150-year-plus history in the optics business.
A tradition of optic excellence
I learned photography on my dad's old 1950s Leica M3, and I bet it's still taking great images for the lucky person he eventually sold it to. These compact binoculars are also built to last a lifetime — and more.
The Ultravids feel solid, but lightweight and balanced — comfortable to hold in your hands. Focus, diopter, and interpupillary adjustments are smooth and precise.
And even more importantly, Leica uses innovative coating processes for the high-quality lenses, and high-transmission SCHOTT HT™ glass in the prisms. So when you scan the horizon, you'll see astonishing detail and depth of focus, and razor-sharp, contrast-rich images with bright colors — even in low light.
Rugged and reliable for a lifetime of use
Leica Ultravids feature a durable, die-cast magnesium-alloy body with rubber armor coating that's easy to grip. Leica's AquaDura® coating protects the high-performance optics from water, dust, and dirt. Plus, these binoculars are waterproof and fogproof so you can use them worry-free under just about any conditions.
The included contoured Neoprene strap provides plenty of support to keep you comfortable over long stretches in the field while keeping your Ultravids always at the ready.

More details on the Leica Ultravid HD-Plus 10x42 Binoculars
Overview: The Leica Ultravid 10x42 HD-Plus (#40094) features improved optics to deliver bright, clear images and enhanced optical performance. These lightweight binoculars are made of durable magnesium alloy to cut down on fatigue during long viewing sessions. They also have a titanium center hinge axle for dependable adjustment of the eye base. The Ultravid 10x42 comes with a curved neoprene padded carrying strap, eyepiece caps, two objective lens caps (tethered to the tubes), and a Cordura carrying case.
Waterproof: The Ultravid 10x42 are water-tight to a depth of 5 meters (16.5 feet). In addition, the optical tubes are filled with nitrogen to prevent fogging and condensation from forming on the internal elements.
Premium Leica Optics: The Ultravid HD-Plus binoculars feature premium Leica optics for sharp, high-contrast images with superior color fidelity. Specially formulated Schott HT glass improves the color fidelity and light transmission which makes them brighter in low-light situations. Leica's High Durable Coating (HDC) protects the outer lenses from scratches, and the AquaDura Coating makes water and oil bead up for easier cleaning. Internally, the roof prisms are treated with P40 phase correction coating, and with the proprietary High Lux System (HLS) to improve color and contrast.
Focus Wheel/Diopter Ring: The Ultravid 10x42 has a smooth, central focus wheel for focusing on subjects at different distances. The adjustment wheel can be locked to prevent unintended adjustments. The binoculars feature a ±4 dpt diopter adjustment for the right eyepiece that assures both eyepieces are in focus. The adjustment has a diopter index indicating the "0" position, as well as + and - positions.
Eyecups: The 2 click-stop rubber eyecups make it easy to position your eyes at the correct eye-point for the greatest comfort during extended use. The eyecups can retract to accommodate eyeglass wearers. The eye relief is 16mm.
Leica Passport Warranty: Leica Sport Optics are covered by a new best-in-class warranty and product protection plan. The Leica Passport Warranty is completely free, and includes a fully transferrable no-fault 10-year accidental damage cover plan and a 30-year manufacturer's defect warranty. No warranty card or receipts is needed.
