  • RainGuard® HD

    Without it, you’re not ready. Thanks to RainGuard, a wet lens or a misguided breath that would fog conventional glass will never cost you a view. This patented, permanent, water-repellent coating causes moisture from rain, snow, sleet and condensation to bead up and scatter less light, so you get a clear, bright view when other optics would be rendered useless

  • XTR® Technology

    As light passes through the many prisms and lenses of a roofprism binocular, some light is usually lost along the way. Our exclusive new XTR technology – utilizing 60 layers of coatings on each prism – conserves, harnesses and optimizes the available light. XTR delivers an amazing 99.73% light transmission per lens for a combined light transmission of 90%, making the Bushnell Elite® series the brightest binocular in its class.
  • Waterproof/Fogproof

    Products are O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged for total waterproof and fogproof protection. These models can withstand complete immersion in water and stay dry inside. The interior optical surfaces won’t fog due to rapid temperature change or humidity.

BRIGHT. CLEAR. HD IMAGERY

Already a 60+ year masterwork of ruggedness, clarity and light transmission, the Elite® gets a significant performance upgrade this year with the addition of ED Prime glass. Fully multi-coated and featuring XTR technology, our Advanced Fusion Hybrid Lens system delivers 99.7% light transmission per lens. The result is unmatched edge-to-edge clarity, contrast and color-true imagery – now pushed to the highest levels with the use of ED Prime Glass. RainGuard HD coating eliminates lens fogging, boosts brightness and scatters moisture even faster than original RainGuard. Elite binoculars are also 100% waterproof,* fogproof and built around a tough, lightweight magnesium chassis for reliability in the most extreme conditions.
