Top class parts
With the H2O series, Bushnell has created a viewer that is completely waterproof and can be used in water-rich situations, for example during kayaking, skiing, on the boat and in the snow. Even if the binoculars fall overboard you will fish it out of the water untouched. The cover consists of extra strong rubber and has a ribbed profile on the side for extra grip, useful in extremely wet conditions. The glass at the front is multicoated for optimal light transmission and is made of BaK4 glass (the better variant of BK7 glass). The H2O series is available in a wide range of versions, take a look around on our site for the model that suits you best. In short, a wonderful series of viewers for a spectacular image for all your adventures.
Bushnell guarantees a hermetically sealed body due to the rubber coating, nitrogen gas filling and special O-rings. This means that you have a completely water and condensation proof product. With a 30-year warranty, you are assured that, even under the harshest conditions, this bold viewer will not be able to get away from you.
H2O Roof or Porro
The H2O 8x42 is available in two versions, Porro and Roof. Porro binoculars (see image below) are wider binoculars and are based on the first design of binoculars. The Porro consists of 2 rectangular prisms that are attached to each other in such a way that the light can be reflected, resulting in an undistorted image. Conventional binoculars use Porro Prisms.
A roof viewer uses special prisms. This is technically more complicated than the Porro Prisma design, this is due to the need to use prisms with very precisely polished corners. The light is reflected 4 times. This design is more compact, but due to the fact that the path of the light is longer and the prisms are more complicated, the glass must be of higher quality than that of the Porro prism design, so roof viewers are usually a bit higher in terms of price. Roof prism binoculars have straight tubes as shown in the picture.
