With our huge selection and incredible prices, it’s no wonder people turn to us for their sport optic needs. Our company carries some of the most trusted names in optics manufacturing – brands that meet our own standards of quality, precision, and innovation.

For years, one of the most popular brands we carry is Kowa Sporting Optics. Kowa binoculars have been the choice of discerning sportspeople and outdoor adventurers due to the company’s incessant drive for precision in everything they manufacture. Kowa binoculars and sport optics are professional grade equipment.

About Kowa Binoculars

Kowa got its start way back in 1894 in Japan. As one of the largest privately-owned corporations in Japan, their products can be found in the healthcare, industrial, and energy fields. The company began manufacturing spotting scopes and binoculars in 1952 and quickly gained a reputation for excellence. Kowa’s optics were used by officials in the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games. Kowa sporting optics were introduced to the American market in 1980 when the company established its Kowa Optimed division in Torrance, California.

Kowa is highly regarded among professional outdoorspeople for the incredible precision they offer as well as the ruggedness of the optics, able to withstand abuse in the field. One of the company’s innovations in the field of sporting optics is their use of fluorite crystal lenses that are laboratory-grown in the brand’s own facilities and then handcrafted for the ultimate in brilliant imaging and optical clarity. Their low dispersion properties of the fluorite crystals nearly eliminate color blur and distortion found even in high-quality glass optic lenses. Kowa’s binoculars feature ergonomic shapes and light weight, making them extremely portable for long excursions into the field.

Kowa Binoculars at Optics4Birding

Kowa binoculars have been used by people in the outdoors since the brand first began manufacturing them. They’ve become a trusted choice for some of the most discerning optics users in the world, offering unparalleled clarity and brilliant images, even in their long focal-length models. Laboratory grown fluorite crystal lenses grace the company’s flagship binocular models, but their more budget-oriented binoculars don’t skimp on quality, utilizing extra-low dispersion glass lenses. Proprietary lens coatings improve reflectance of the internal roof prisms, and lightweight magnesium alloy bodies make for lightweight units that are easy to carry for all-day uses.

Kowa produces a number of binocular models in addition to their other sporting optic products like spotting scopes and lenses. Optics4Birding carries wide variety of binocular models from this brand. Here are a few of our favorites from their extensive lineup:

Portability and impressive optical clarity join forces in the compact Kowa BD25 Binoculars, available in 8x25 and 10x25 magnifications. These compact binoculars easily fit into a pocket, purse, or bag, and offer a weight of only 11.3 ounces.

A great choice for kids is the classically-styled Kowa YF II 6x30 Binoculars. This model is made to suit smaller children’s faces, and they look like binoculars of old but with the latest in lens and lens coating technologies aboard. These represent an affordable way to get children involved in outdoor activities like birdwatching.

The Kowa BD56 10x56 Prominar XD Binoculars represent the company’s midrange offerings. This binocular model has 56mm objective lenses, making it suitable for low-light conditions like astronomy or birding on overcast days. Rugged construction and advanced lens coatings help protect the optical quality of these pro-grade binoculars.

One of the most powerful binoculars available, the spare-no-expense Kowa High Lander 32x82 Binoculars feature the company’s flagship fluorite crystal lenses for the ultimate in clarity and image reproduction. An incredible 32x magnification brings distant subjects into rich detail.
