  • Features

    Impressive optics

    Be sure not to miss a single bird and at the same time enjoy the wealth of detail, the colours and the brilliance of the natural world. In order to ensure that you still enjoy the same observation quality, the Victory Compact binoculars have outstanding imaging performance, and naturally, also benefit from the low light capability of the Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating. The optical performance of these binoculars is rounded off by the field of view, which is exceptionally wide for its class. Such features make these binoculars not just perfect for casual birdwatching but also give you a greater and more detailed insight at events, in cities or when travelling in the great outdoors.

    Handy and compact

    The Victory Compact binoculars fold up to save space and are designed to be used easily with one hand, which means that they are always ready to use. Simply keep them handy in your bag. When you are birdwatching in steep, rugged terrain or engaged in outdoor activities, it can be a huge advantage to be able to use the binoculars with just one hand as you can use your other hand to steady yourself.

    Robust and waterproof

    The fact that they are always at hand enables them to be used in extreme conditions. The design of the Victory Compact focuses in particular on the use of high-quality materials. Naturally, the binoculars are 100% waterproof and filled with nitrogen, so that even extreme changes in temperature will not cause any internal misting up. The rubber armour makes these binoculars robust and shockproof, and offers the first line of protection for the high-performance optics inside.

    Low light lenses thanks to Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating

    You will really notice the difference on dark autumn days or when watching owls in the spring. The unique Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating, which ensures that plenty of light comes through the lenses in all Carl Zeiss binoculars. This enables you to watch birds with unrivalled clarity and brightness in twilight, dark weather conditions and even in the interplay of light and shade found in woodland.

    Innovative lens coating

    Water simply rolls off the lens as if from a duck's back. This is due to the LotuTec® coating on the lens and eyepiece. The fact that water simply rolls off and no dirt can collect on the surface of the lenses means that you can spend less time cleaning and more time birdwatching.

    Award-winning

    The Victory Compact binoculars are not afraid of comparison. The Stiftung Warentest tested the Victory Compact 10 x 25 T*. It found these small, high-performance optics from Carl Zeiss to be "very good“.
