The devices available from us can be used for many different situations, and the selections range from the compact to full size.

Binoculars help by increasing the range of your vision, and can be very helpful in allowing you to see anything that is far way, and not otherwise discernible to the naked eye. Magnifications possible in the different ranges of these hunting aids vary from 8x to 15x and will give you the field that you want. Our brands like Bushnell, Leupold, Nikon and others are all tested to help make sure you receive a quality product.

Your binoculars should give you superior contrast, clarity and premium brightness, choose multi-coated lenses for the best effect. You also need to be sure of the size of the binoculars that you want. The best size is the one that fits easily into your hands. So, smaller hands call for compacts, as they would be more comfortable. Large scale binoculars are just right for you if you have larger hands.

Tips for Choosing the Right Binoculars

  • One of the best tips for buying binoculars is to determine those which are best for your needs by doing some initial research. All binoculars are not equal.
  • You can enjoy a sharper and cleaner image with porro prism construction, although roof prism models tend to be lighter and more streamlined.
  • If you enjoy bird watching or looking at stars, a model with a larger exit pupil is recommended as these allow more light to enter. General viewing of distant objects during daylight lends itself to a smaller exit pupil.
  • If buying binoculars for kids, consider one of the auto focus compact models available. Your kids are more likely to use them, and they are portable and simple to use.
  • Most high end models use barium crown (BaK 4) glass, which has one of the highest quality glass ratings.
  • If you plan to use them in less than perfect outdoor weather, look for binoculars that are well made and tough, as well as waterproof, shock proof and fog proof.
  • If you routinely use your binoculars in unstable conditions or to look at objects a long distance away, look for a model offering image stabilization. This feature allows you to enjoy a steadier view by using microprocessors to adjust the angle of the glass.
  • One of the best tips for those who enjoy astronomy is to use specially designed astronomy binoculars. These have a magnification power of between 10x and 30x, admit the maximum amount of light and have larger objective lenses of up to 100 millimeters.
