Carl Zeiss Sports Optics has applied its most advanced lens coating technology to the Victory Compacts giving these lightweight binoculars significantly improved light transmission at dawn and dusk. Zeiss' dielectric mirror coating process, first introduced in the VICTORY 32 FL binoculars, has been applied to the Schmidt Pechan prisms in the VICTORY Compact 8x20 and 10x25 models enhancing contrast and brightness and noticeably improving light transmission. The sleek design remains the same except for the addition of the name VICTORY Compact on the front. The contours of this line were built with comfort, durability and performance in mind. The easy-grip black rubber armouring provides optimum protection in the field and a non-slip grip in all weather conditions. The offset hinge allows for one barrel of the binocular to fold closely into the other providing for a very compact package - small enough to fit into a shirt pocket.
