100% Waterproof and Fog Proof
Designed with outdoor hunters in mind the VX-5HD is completely immune to the elements and will last the test of time, no matter what conditions you subject it to. The body of the scope itself is resistant to rust and corrosion and features a hard outer layer that protects against scratches.
Instead of using nitrogen to purge the tubes of the VH-5HD, Leupold have used a mixture of Krypton and Argon gasses. The reason for this is simple, their molecules are larger than nitrogen and there fore greatly reduce the rate of internal diffusion.
Blackened Lens Edges
The VX-5HD has had the edges of its lenses blackened. This is for two reasons, firstly it reduces the impact of internal glare on the eye allowing for better image clarity, and secondly it drastically increases contrast for excellent target acquisition.
