Kite Optics Toucan 8X42 Binocular

Due to high demand and global product shortages due to the pandemic, please call for availability.

A slim and comfortable pair of binoculars, well armored with soft-touch rubber. The high performing optical system is treated with KITE’s MHR coating, offering a brilliantly sharp and contrast-rich image. The optics are housed in a magnesium/aluminum chassis. Even the smallest internal components of the Toucan are made from lightweight metals that ensure the Toucan can easily live up to its extensive 30-year warranty. The outer lens surfaces are treated with KITE Permavision, a water and dirt repellent coating that will result in less cleaning and longer lens life.
