2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing
The VX-5HD is incredibly tough and is the perfect scope for outdoor hunters thanks to it being 100% water and fog proof.
Usually nitrogen is used to purge the internal tube of the majority of scopes but with the VX-5HD, Leupold uses a mixture of Argon and Krypton gasses that not only makes the scope far more resistant to heat and secondly vastly decreases diffusion.
Blackened Lens Edges
The lenses of the VX-5HD are of truly exceptional quality and feature black edges that are excellent at not only improving contrast but also minimising the solar glare which can lead to certain colours looking washed out.
Extreme Fast-Focus Eyepiece
Even in a scope that features so many excellent components, the eye piece of the 5HD stands out in terms of quality. Its generous size maximises light transfer and makes target acquisition simple and easy and with one full turn, can cycle though is full focal range which allows for razor sharp images near instantly, no matter the range.
Guard-Ion Rain shedding coating
The coating of these lenses is just as hard wearing as the outside of the scopes and feature a specially designed coating that protects against scratches and fingerprints without losing clarity.
The 5HD offers exceptionally vivid colour and life like clarity for truly exceptional image quality. The calcium fluoride used on these lenses replaces traditional lead for better image quality and a lighter weight.
Twilight Max Light Management System
The light management system of the 5HD is ideal for shooting in low light conditions as it maximises the transfer of light into the ye, particularly blue and red frequencies. This is because your eye is most sensitive to blue light when it is dark and red light helps maximise contrast, the result is a scope that can keep you on target long after others have gone home.
