I conducted a practical comparison of these two new, highly advanced, waterproof binoculars. First handling revealed that the Zeiss 10x40 Victory is almost a featherweight glass when compared with the Leica 10x42 BN. The difference in the hand and in wearing comfort is immediately noticeable. The user feel of both are superb, but the slightly "grabbier" texture, lighter weight, and broader holding surface on the Zeiss gives an impression of greater security. Both binoculars have broad padded neck straps. Their flexible, strap-mountable, eyepiece rain guards stayed securely in place, both in normal hiking and during removal from their respective black Napa leather protective pouches.
