Yeah, well, it damn sure wasn't Euro anything, which was the point, and you obviously got it. And, the term should have been hydrophobic lens coatings.

Actually Bushnell came first with the hyperbolic lens treatments, and everyone else folllowed. The Germans don't invent everything in optics, contrary to what people may believe.

I use the Rick Young harness too, and it's great. However, in the OP, it was specified that he wanted something that covers and protects the binocular, and the RY definitely does not do that.

Meopta has primarily aimed their products at the military and big game hunting markets. Hunters don't give a rip about that stuff. It should be available though if need be.
