PICKING THE PERFECT LIGHT WEIGHT BINOCULARS FOR YOU

Most people know what binoculars are and what they’re used for, but there may be those who don’t know or need to know more about them. Binoculars are two small telescopes attached side by side and are used to look at things or objects that are in a distance. Using both hands to hold them, you can zoom in or out to adjust accordingly for the distance of the object you are looking at. They can be used for hiking, bird watching, sporting events, astronomy, traveling, at a theatre and for many other uses. Hunters use them to locate animals in a distance or take a closer look at one they have spotted. Binoculars come in various sizes, from large to small, but we will focus on compact, light weight binoculars.

BEST LIGHT WEIGHT BINOCULARS

Since there are so many brands and types of light weight binoculars, it may be difficult to choose one to suit your needs. To help in your decision, the following are some of the best:

 

  • Zeiss 8×25 ED compact binoculars are lightweight and compact and are

great for hiking because of the easy-to-use adjustment wheel that lets you

focus on objects without delay. The manufacturer uses hydrophobic multi-

coated lenses that keeps water from absorbing and are fog proof which helps

you see clearly at all times. They also have a waterproof casing. This brand

is one of the best to use in any kind of weather condition.

 

  • Leica 8×20 BCR Ultravid compact binoculars are also waterproof, fog proof and

have an AquaDura lens coating that repels water and protects from dirt and

damage. The adjustable eye cups and focus wheel help you view any object with

ease. If the sight in one of your eyes is different from the other, it also

has something called a diopter that helps you get that perfect view you want

without a problem. These have all the features you need for a great bird-

watching experience.

 

  • Celestron 71130 Nature DX 8×32 compact binoculars are lightweight, weighing

only 18 ounces, and are less expensive than most. They are great for

beginners doing bird watching as well as for hikers out on a rainy day.

Even though they cost less, they have the fog proof feature, are

waterproof and are made with optics that produce brighter images. They are

great for those who wear eyeglasses because of the twist-up eyecups.

 

  • Wingspan Optics SpectatorPro 8×32 compact binoculars is a choice for more

budget-conscious buyers. They are not pricey, but still have many of

the features more expensive binoculars have. The optics provides a glare free

view, and they are waterproof and fog proof. They are small, weighing only

15 ounces, so fits nicely in your hands, which makes them the perfect choice

for bird watching. They have a case and lens cover so can be kept safely in

your backpack.
