2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing
Instead of using nitrogen to purge their tubes, Leupold instead use a special blend of Krypton and Argon gasses. The reson for this is twofold, firstly it vastly increases resistance to thermal shock and secondly, as the molecules for these gasses are much larger than nitrogen, their rate of diffusion is decreased.
The scope is 100% water and fog proof and giving you the confidence that no mater the weather conditions, this scope will perform, shot after shot.
Blackened Lens Edges
The high quality lenses of the VX-5HD have had their edges blackened to not only provide higher resolution, but also minimise any unwanted glare that can water down the colours of certain images.
Extreme Fast-Focus Eyepiece
The VX-5HD comes complete with a fast focus eye piece than enables lightning fast focusing with a wide field of view. The diopter adjustment is quick, easy and able to cycle trough its entire focal range with one twist.
Guard-Ion Rain shedding coating
The lenses of the VX-5HD are just as resilient as the body with excellent protection from fingerprints and scratches.
The scope provides stunning clarity of vision with unrivalled colour and contrast enable quick and accurate target acquisition. The scope uses calcium fluoride treated lenses instead of lead which is not only higher quality, but also lighter.
Twilight Max Light Management System
The key to forming a crisp, high contrast image is maximum light transfer into the eye from various colours. With the VX-5HD blue colours are maximised which helps with definition, especially in low light, and red light which helps maximise the contrast between the target and its surroundings, enabling faster target acquisition.
