The new Barr & Stroud Sahara range of binoculars are a blend of superb optical quality and rugged refinement that has produced an elegant range of binoculars that take the Barr & Stroud brand to new level of performance and sophistication.
The 12x50 Sahara is the most powerful binocular in the range, if power is what you want or need this is as good as a hand held binocular at this price gets! The trade off is that it will not be the best performer in low light and it will be harder to hold steady than a binocular with 10x magnification but with an apparent view at a 1000m of only 82m this is a stunningly powerful binocular.
The Sahara range from Barr & Stroud feature rugged construction combined with brilliant optics. They are waterproof to a depth 1.5m of water for three minutes, plenty of time to retrieve them if you have dropped them in a stream or puddle.
This requires a high degree of mechanical quality in the construction of the binocular which is evident as soon as you pick the binocular up or use the super smooth focus control wheel. We don’t expect that you will make a habit of dropping the binoculars into deep water but we do expect that you will want to use them in any weather the planet can throw at you, so you can feel assured that the Barr & Stroud ‘Sierra’ can take it, again and again.
This ability is further enhanced by the binoculars’ rubber armoured body which protects it from shocks and knocks.
