Various Awards for the new Leica Geovid 10x42 HD-B Laser Rangefinder Binocular

About the Field & Stream's "Best of the Best" Award
“The Best of the Best is the highest honor Field & Steam bestows on gear and the winning products are the best of the year; worth your time, worth your money. The winning products not only withstood our tough testing, but they stood head and shoulders above the rest displaying absolute excellence in their field." says Slaton White, Deputy Editor of Field & Stream.
Before a product earns recognition as "Best of the Best," it must undergo field testing by F&S experts. Field & Stream test-team members rigorously test each item during a process dubbed the "Field & Stream Torture Tests." Beyond surviving the torture tests, winning products are ultimately selected based on significance of the innovation, the quality of the design, and the value they bring to outdoorsmen. Selection criteria varies, depending upon the category, but all of the winning products share one characteristic: excellence in their field.

About the Gray's Best 2014
Each year Gray's Sporting Journal editors review hundreds of new products, and those that most impress the editors end up with a Gray's Best Award. Winning for best binocular in the "Shooting" category, the Leica Geovid 10x42 Binocular is described in the Gray's Sporting Journal's review of its Gray's Best products as not only being the first binocular with integral laser rangefinder, but by several measurements, also the "very best."
About the Outdoor Life Editor's Choice Award for Innovation
The Editor's Choice Awards are given to best-in-class products that embody the ideal combination of quality, craftsmanship, ingenuity and value. Petersen's Hunting staff writers and editors test hundreds of products in real world conditions. Scientific measures are used for quantifiable results whenever possible. If not, years of hunting experience and practical field knowledge become the yardstick.
Josh Dahlke, Petersen's Hunting contributing writer, said, "The Leicas had the best display, quickest and most accurate rangefinding, and supreme optical quality. It was the overall best in show." Leica's new Geovid HD-B won the "Innovation" category, receiving an overall score of four stars and a "Final Verdict" of "Best rangefinder in the industry, monster field of view. A game-changer."
