The new Series-5 range from Barr and Stroud offers even better
construction and features. The magnesium body offers excellent
robustness whilst retaining an overall light weight for comfortable
handling. The refinement and quality are apparent the moment you adjust
the rubber clad metal twist-up eyecups, for your first glimpse through
the superior phase coated optics, and the wide field of view ensures you
capture even more of the action. The eyepieces provide generously long
eye relief making them highly suitable for spectacle wearers.
They are waterproof to a depth of 1.5m of water for three minutes,
plenty of time to retrieve them if you have dropped them into a stream
or puddle. The water-repellant lens coating ensures any water coming
into contact with the objective lens surface will simply run off. All
Series-5 models come supplied with tethered lens caps, rainguard, strap
and protective carrying case.
