12x50 binoculars have become more popular instead of the traditional technique of running 10x42s and 15x56s. Choosing to run the one size saves you weight and money. If you are in the market for a solid pair of 12x50 binoculars that will not break the bank but still offer high-quality performance, then you should consider Leupold's BX-5 Santiam HD binoculars. This binocular's advanced BAK 4 prisms, HD lenses, and Twilight Max Light Management System combine to provide you a crisp and clear image even in low light conditions. They are also built on an open-bridge frame which helps give these binoculars great ergonomics. Included in the box are lens covers, a lens cloth, binocular case, and a go afield shoulder strap.

I have him and hawed, about a new set of binoculars, looking at this one and that one, researching and reading reviews, researching where they are made. There isn’t a single set of binoculars made in the US, the best ones are made I Japan not China. Leupold has never let me down in the past and they didn’t let me down this time. These are awesome in low light conditions and easy to looking through for my old tired eyes. I believe these are the best bang for your buck, hands down.
