This new binocular is unique in 10 different ways! The 6.5×32 LW is the smallest, lightest, and second-least-expensive Oberwerk binocular. It has the widest IPD (inter-pupillary distance) range (51-74mm) in the Oberwerk product line, and the lowest magnification- which makes it the steadiest when hand-held, and also gives it a huge 8° field of view. Image quality is impressive, especially so considering the low cost. It’s the only binocular in the LW Series that is waterproof and nitrogen-filled, has Mariner-style twist-up eyecups and Sport HD-style captive objective covers- and it’s the only Oberwerk binocular that’s brown!
All of these qualities make it the perfect binocular for children- but adults love it too! It is ideal for any and all outdoor activities including bird-watching, hunting, sporting events, boating, and astronomy.
Just like our more-expensive models, it has fully broadband multi-coated all-glass lenses and BAK4 prisms, and a rubber-armored aluminum body. It includes a right ocular diopter, soft rubber ocular cover, captive soft rubber objective covers, rugged nylon case, and a strap.
