WideBand Multi-coated Lenses
The binoculars contain high quality Bak-4 Porro-Prisms manufactured from treated and refined glass. The lenses have been specially treated with WideBand multi coatings which guarantee light transmission to be at a maximum. As a result of these advanced optical features, the binoculars offer bright, sharp and detailed images even when using in low light conditions.
Wide Field of View
The Falmouth series binoculars are set apart from most on the market with their outstandingly wide field of view. Boasting 145m (at 100m), a user can observe a large panorama from one position providing a more pleasurable viewing experience. Twist up eye cups mean that even spectacle wearers can enjoy this same wide vision experience.
Fully protected for use in any climate
Unlike the majority of traditional Porro prism binoculars, the Falmouth series from Hilkinson are 100% waterproof thanks to watertight O-Ring seals. To further optimise this innovative waterproof design, thick rubber armour has been added to the binocular body to ensure that when they do get wet, a firm grip can still be maintained. Hilkinson added a final level of climate protection by injecting and sealing each barrel of the binoculars with nitrogen gas. This measure works to counter any internal fogging of the lenses, a common problem when the binoculars are subjected to temperature change.
With such a versatile and rugged design the Hilkinson Falmouth is perfect for observing nature and sports events in extreme detail. So whether you’re a dedicated bird watcher or just need an all-round pair of binoculars the Falmouth offers the correct range of features for you.
