The series offer outstanding value for money and exceptional image quality.
Balancing the traditional Porro prism configuration (providing for a large distance between each objective lens) and a low power magnification (6x or 8x), the YF series boast an extremely wide viewing field (140m and 132m at 1000m for 6x and 8x respectively). This unique feature allows the user to observe a large field from one position providing a more pleasurable viewing experience.
Kowa's “KR Coating” is applied to the eyepiece and objective lenses. Due to the coating’s dirt-resistant properties, these binoculars are easy to maintain.
The Kowa YF Series has a modern take on traditional thinking. Kowa have taken a heritage Porro prism optical configuration and enclosed it in a modern form, offering a unique and unrivalled user experience. Various modern features have been added, including thick rubber armour designed to protect the internal optics during more demanding use, as well as smooth-to-grainy body surface texture, giving users an optimal balance between comfort and grip. Also, unique to the YF Series, are the specially moulded soft contours which are designed to improve ergonomics, ensuring that the binoculars sit naturally in the hand during prolonged use.
The housing is waterproof and filled with nitrogen gas which prevents internal fogging.
