New from Leupold: LTO-Quest Handheld Thermal Optic

If you’ve ever been hunting at dusk, you know that no matter how hard you try for a clean kill, it doesn’t always work out that way. And it can be awfully difficult to track down wounded game in twilight conditions. Enter Leupold with their new LTO-Quest handheld thermal optic, a pocketable thermal scanner that will help locate game you might not otherwise find. MSRP is $649. Expect retail to be about $499.

Leupold® Adds to Thermal Optics Line with Handheld LTO-Quest

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Leupold & Stevens, Inc. introduces the latest in its line of Leupold® Thermal Optics, the LTO-Quest.

This pocket-sized thermal optic helps hunters find downed game, track blood trails and increase situational awareness. The LTO-Quest provides a precise temperature reading of the object being scanned and displays it on the screen. In addition to showing heat sources, the LTO-Quest has a built-in flashlight and camera which allows you to capture and store as many as 2,000 images.

“Leupold works closely with hunters to develop products to help them be more effective in the field,” said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The LTO-Quest gives hunters a pocket-sized tool to help recover game that may otherwise have been lost.”

Cycle through the eight color filters using a simple three-button interface. An internal, rechargeable battery delivers four hours of run time, and uses a standard micro USB for charging and image downloads.

A built-in flashlight offers user-adjustable power settings that can be set to meet the needs of the hunter. With a maximum output of 300 lumens, the LTO-Quest provides plenty of power to help locate game or find paths to stands and blinds.

Featuring a generous 2.4″ LCD screen, the LTO-Quest provides a 20-degree field of view with a 300-yard detection range. The 15hz display offers smooth images and is easy to view in all lighting conditions.

Sized to fit in a pocket or small pouch, the LTO-Quest is a lightweight powerhouse that belongs in every hunter’s pack. In addition to afield, the LTO-Quest is a great tool for everything from keeping an eye on property, examining energy efficiency around the home, or checking mechanical equipment for heat issues.

    Thermal for under 500. I like where prices on thermal are going.

      You said it. I was expecting to see $1500 or so.

      Hopefully that may mean IR HUD for cars driving in fog may not be far behind…

    What the hell did I just buy a Leupold LTO tracker for then? No camera, useless crosshairs, tiny screen, heavy housing, no flashlight, no USB charging, only six color filters, expensive battery, no case, no lens caps, no download port, no nothing. And all for $200 more.

    Thanks Leupold. No point buying early if your as bad as the computer companies..

    I want one, so I can run around the woods at night making sweet Predator noises, as I hunt Ahnold Fluffenbunny and his squad of woodland teammates.

    Ahem. That product has appeared on the market before as the Seek Thermal Fast Frame. And they retail for about $300. I have one. I like it. Great value for $300. Can’t tell the Leopold has added anything to what I’ve already got.

    Nothing on their website. The thing have an IP rating? A lot of these cheap thermals are just toys.

    it’s GREAT that we are paying for the R&D and mil manufacturing base of the Chicoms. Suppose the PLA issues one per coolie rifleman?
