For breathtaking visual experiences

The Ultravid models are probably the most compact binoculars in their class. They impress due to their excellent optical performance, perfect handling and robust construction. All Ultravid binoculars are waterproof, and use lightweight housing materials such as magnesium or aluminium.
Within the series, a distinction is made between the different models: Ultravid HD-Plus, Ultravid Blackline and the Ultravid compact binoculars.

Differences between the Ultravid models

The Ultravid series consists of three model ranges:

Ultravid HD-Plus

  • Meets the highest demands made on binoculars. The binoculars are characterized by innovative coating processes, high-quality lenses and high-transmission glass (SCHOTT HT™ glass) in the prisms.
  • A sophisticated system of baffles reduces the stray light to a minimum. In addition, the perfect balance between transmission and contrast guarantees natural, rich colours, clear vision and the sharpest detail resolution.
  • The focusing mechanism is perfectly smooth and allows safe, fast and accurate focusing with just 1.25 turns.
  • The innovative AquaDura® coating protects the optical systems from water, dirt and damage.
  • Robust rubber coating for a good grip, even in the harshest weather conditions.

Whether as a small companion on day trips or as a light giant for night-time observing – Ultravid HD Plus binoculars are the perfect all-rounders for complete visual experiences. Recognizable by the red HD lettering on the binoculars.

Ultravid Blackline

  • Elegant appearance, high-contrast impression!
    Beautiful to look at – and a perfect perspective. The Ultravid Blackline not only looks attractive with its easy to grip leather trim, they are also extremely compact and perfect for demanding observing.
  • Discover the benefits of binoculars that are as light as a feather.
    The Leica Ultravid Blackline is designed for easy, comfortable handling. With its extremely low weight, it lies firmly and safely in the hand and the large adjustment wheel enables fast and precise focusing.

Ultravid compact binoculars

Nature is full of surprises. The Ultravid compact binoculars are perfect for watchful observers who have no time to lose. These practical pocket binoculars are every bit as good as larger binoculars, are designed to fit in your pocket, and are distinguished by their brightness and clarity. With these compact models, you can see details while out and about in nature that you might have otherwise missed. Available as the BR Model with a rubber housing, or Blackline (BL) with leather trim and an exclusive leather case.
