Lightweight compact and powerful, the 15x50 Recon is a full-featured, hand-held optic designed for easy packing into the high country when gear consideration is measured in ounces. With an integral hand strap and carry clip, the Recon weighs only 15.2 ounces. Every optical surface is fully multi-coated with multi-layer XR coatings, and the large 50mm objective lens is protected with ArmorTek to resist scratches, dirt, grease and smudges.
