Backpacking Equipment at its BestLeather case with silent magnetic fastener and close-up lens compartment

.... outstanding optical performance and compactness ideally suited for ultralight backcountry travel. The integration of the optical elements into a tough, nitrogen-filled aluminum body guarantees precision and longevity. Lightweight body construction is waterproof and protects the monocular in rough outdoor conditions. It's small, light, tough and luxurious.

Inside the elegant leather case is a pocket for a special attachment - the close-up lens. Installing this accessory allows 8x magnification as close as 9.8"/ 25 cm - this macro-effect viewing is excellent for observing the finest details (e.g. bugs) not viewable through larger optics.
