Waterproof Fogproof

Brunton Eterna 6x30 Monocular

Hunting binoculars are a highly important item to any hunter. They can also be useful if you like to fish or hike. Hunting binoculars will be used outdoors, probably in rough terrain, so it is vital to look for a pair which are built to last and stand up to the odd fall or scrape. Rubber armor and o-ring sealed, nitrogen-purged housing give you complete fog-proof and waterproof dependability. You might like to have a look at some military binoculars.

If you want bright, sharp, high quality images, a Bak-4 prism is recommended. The binocular optics should be fully multi-coated for protection and image quality. Roof prism binoculars are much better for hunting because they offer sturdy durability when you are tracking.

Outdoor optics, whether night vision binoculars, specialist hunting binoculars, toughened waterproof binoculars or compact binoculars, come in 8x42 or 10x42 magnification, which is perfect for a variety of requirements. The 8x42 type is ideal for dusk, night or early morning hunting - any time when the natural light is low. If you are hunting in wooded and bushy areas, your vision will be reduced so 8x would be the best magnification. If you are in open areas and the light is better, the 10x magnification would be better, so you can see further away.

Features of Hunting Binoculars

It is a good idea to read some reviews of hunting binoculars before you go and buy any. You should compare different manufacturers of binoculars, such as Leupold, Steiner and Swarouski, who make high quality outdoor binoculars and spotting scopes. The rangefinder binocular works very well because it is important to know exactly how far away the game is.

The rangefinder works by using a laser beam, which is emitted to the target and sent back to the binoculars. There is a chip built into the binoculars, which calculates and displays the exact range. This is great for hunters who do not have a scope but need to know the distance immediately. A few seconds can make all the difference when it comes to hunting, as any keen hunter will know.

Night vision is another very important feature on hunting binoculars. They work by using electronics in the optics to create a phosphorous image of your target. You can adjust the resulting display. Birding binoculars also use large lenses, to allow more light to enter. This means the resulting image is of greater quality. Try to check out the online retailer who specializes in the type of binoculars you would prefer. This means you can access the best information about the viewing optics most suitable for the big or small game hunting you plan to do.

Tips for Choosing Your Binoculars

• What do you need your binoculars for? You might be seeking hunting binoculars, birding binoculars, marine use, compact or night vision binoculars - or maybe a pair for two or more activities.

• The lenses are extremely important because they are your viewing platform. Ensure the lenses have been optically ground and are coated for protection. A fully multi-coated lens is usually superior and more hardy.

• Check the binoculars are of high quality and that they are well made. Look at the body and see how it is protected. A hard rubber shell, for instance, is good for tough, outdoor usage.

• Decide which magnification is going to suit your needs the best. If you need to be able to see a long way, you might want to get high-power binoculars but remember that the higher the magnification, the lower the image quality and resulting field of vision.

• Compare a few different binoculars to see how your eyes feel in the eyepieces and how much they weigh. Ensure the optics have a good, comfortable neck strap. You might prefer waterproof or water-resistant binoculars. An anti-fog coating for the lens might also be a good idea.

• Check the focal adjustment - is it easy to use? Does it move silently and smoothly and give good results? Is it located where you want? (Most are located at the nose bridge).

Binoculars are a Personal Choice

There are plenty of things to bear in mind when thinking about buying binoculars. Many of the options involve personal preferences such as how heavy you want them to be, how strong you think they need to be for your purpose or what extra features they have. The best way to choose a pair of hunting binoculars is to spend as long as you need researching what is available and what is within your budget. This is not a decision to be rushed because a perfect pair of hunting binoculars will make your hunting adventures many times more exciting and a lot more enjoyable.

Where can I find a good pair of waterproof/fogproof hunting binoculars?

Im trying to buy my boyfriend (who's a hunter) a pair of binoculars for xmas. He wants ones that are 10x25, waterproof and fogproof. Im trying to keep the price under $100 (like between $60 - $80). Can anyone recommend a good store/site please?

Cabelas has a lot of quality stuff. Amazon always has lots of everything. I checked Sierra Trading Post, and they had a good pair for $120; but that was about it:

Overstock had a lot of them:

Here is a pair with a good review. They said fogproof and waterproof, but I have never heard of the brand before. It's probably pretty good though. Besides Bushnell and Nikon, I don't know too many brands. I went to Barska's website, and they do a whole lot of hunting scopes and binoculars and stuff. They're legit:
