Leupold Optics have been a leader in the outdoors industry for years and have been used in my family for generations. My Grandpa bought one of the first VX series scopes for his .30-06 Springfield many years ago. A couple generations later, that .30-06 is now mine and that scope still helps me to drives nails with the combination. For me, the name Leupold is synonymous with dependability and I love having the peace of mind that whatever product it is, it will probably outlast me.

Leupold just released an upgraded version of their BX-3 Mojave series of binoculars, the BX-3 Mojave Pro-Guide HD. The Mojave Pro-Guide Binoculars are beautifully crafted and come in Kryptek Typhon or Highlander patterns. They have added high-definition performance, which is really apparent at dawn and dusk. Anyone who hunts knows how crucial the first and last couple hours of daylight are and having a pair of binoculars that perform beyond expectation during those hours, could be the difference between harvesting that trophy or going home empty-handed. Like most of their optics, the Pro-Guide HDs have fully multi-coated lenses, giving you the crispest image possible.

The BX-3s offer an open bridge design, making them lightweight and ergonomic. They are also 100 percent waterproof, making them perfect for any environment. Being an outdoor videographer, this is especially important to me because I travel all around the world in all sorts of conditions, so having equipment that is rugged and durable is a must. They also have added extra grip in the thumbs and fingers area, providing a nonslip grip even in wet conditions. The added grip also makes them comfortable to hold, giving you less strain on your hands. The longer you can stay behind the glass looking for your target animal, the better your odds are on bagging it. The twist-up eye cups provide exceptional eye relief for any user, even those who wear glasses or sunglasses. The long eye relief also helps to eliminate the effects of glare caused by the sun on cloudless days. I was amazed by how fast and smooth the focus ring performed, even while wearing gloves.

One of the things that I absolutely love about Leupold is the Gold Ring Full Lifetime Guarantee. The Guarantee covers any of your Leupold products for the life of the product. If the product is not performing the way you think it should, send it into the guys at Leupold and they will repair or replace it for free. Optics for most of us are a big investment and with Leupold, you get the peace of mind that they will always perform.
