Power in the smallest possible space

Their light weight makes the Conquest Compact models ideal all-rounders for the whole family. Whether you wish to observe nature while on holiday with your children or take your binoculars with you to concerts or on excursions, the Conquest Compact will always be the right choice. The Conquest Compact is not just the ideal companion for adults: it is also an excellent size for children. These binoculars are easy to use and not tiring to carry due to their lightweight design. In terms of image quality, these binoculars are just as impressive as the large Conquest models, offering strong contrast and a wealth of detail.

Here you find the top features of the Conquest Compact binoculars.

Compact and lightweight

The Conquest Compact binoculars are real featherweights, which fit easily into your shirt or jacket pocket thanks to their Z-fold design.

Robust and splashproof

The firm, extremely robust housing is weatherproof and resistant to spray and splash.

T* multi-layer coating

The Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating ensures that the image stays bright and clear even in poor light conditions.

Compact and lightweight

The Conquest Compact binoculars are genuine featherweights. Weighing no more than 200 g they are the lightest binoculars in the premium class. Their intelligent Z-fold design means that the Conquest Compact will fit easily in your shirt or jacket pocket, or in a child's backpack. This also makes them ideal as a secondary pair of binoculars, always handy for a quick spot of birdwatching, or as the main pair of binoculars for young naturalists, who can take advantage of their lightweight design to discover the exciting details of the natural world.

Robust and splash proof

These binoculars are weatherproof and splash-resistant. The extremely robust housing protects the delicate optics from any knocks or blows, making them even more suitable for use by children. The rubber armour also provides a pleasing, non-slip grip.

Simple to operate

Both the focusing wheel and the diopter adjustment can be operated with just one hand. Little hands will be able to manage these binoculars with ease as they are designed with an extremely small radius. Even people who wear glasses can enjoy full vision thanks to the specially designed eyepieces with their adjustable eyecups.

Low light capability 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, 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.
