Designed for fast glassing on the go, the Carson 8x26 RD Binoculars walk a delicate line between compact and full-sized to deliver performance while being lightweight. Their 8x magnification enables detailed observations of distant subjects and offers a generous field of view. BAK4 glass roof prisms and multi-coated optics improve light transmission, color rendition, clarity, and contrast to help offset the smaller objectives to boost performance as light fades.

 

The RD binoculars are engineered with an open-bridge and dual-hinge, which reduce weight and provide more gripping surface area, without sacrificing strength or stability. To withstand the rigors of the outdoors, the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes. Their lightweight aluminum alloy chassis is wrapped in a green rubber armor that not only protects it from impacts, but provides a slip-resistant grip. The combination of smaller objectives and bridge design results in a slim form-factor that weighs just 10 ounces, so they can comfortably fit in most packs or pockets.

 

Optical Performance

  • 8x magnification
  • 26mm objective lenses
  • Compact roof prism
  • High-density BAK4 glass reduces internal light diffraction for improved clarity and contrast

  • 356' field of view at 1000 yards

 

Use and Handling

  • Open-bridge / dual-hinge configuration
  • Large textured center focus wheel is easy to manipulate—even while wearing gloves
  • Right-eye dioptric correction
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear

Excellent product and service

I originally ordered a different model by mistake - my main requirement being small and lightweight. James gave great advice and dispatched my replacements without any fuss. My new pair arrived today and I can’t wait to use them this weekend at Minsmere. Highly recommend product and Stealth Birding!

I brought these binoculars for watching the birds on the feeder in the garden. They are clear, sharp, easy to focus and light and we are really pleased with them. Delivery was very fast and we received a cleaning kit as a free gift which was a nice bonus.
