Bushnell Receives Two Outdoor Life Gear Test Great Buy Awards

    Overland Park, Kan. — Bushnell Outdoor Products, an industry-leader in high performance sports optics and outdoor accessories for more than 60 years, has been awarded with twoOutdoor Life Great Buy awards. The new Legend Ultra HD 3-9x 50mm riflescope and Legend Ultra HD 10x 25mm folding compact binocular earned the Great Buy awards in the riflescope and mid-size binocular categories, respectively.

    Each winter the Outdoor Life test team gathers to evaluate the newest rifles, shotguns and hunting optics for its annual gear test. The Optics Test includes four categories: riflescopes, full-size binoculars, mid-size binoculars and spotting scopes. Each optic is rated based on optical quality, mechanical precision, low-light performance and through a subjective evaluation. Within each category, the optic with the highest cumulative scores earns the Editor’s Choice award, and the top price/value scoring optic gets the Great Buy award. As a result of the 2012 Optics Test, Bushnell received Great Buy awards for the following products from the Legend Ultra HD family.

    The fully multi-coated Legend Ultra HD 3-9x 50mm riflescope delivers 89 percent light transmission for a clear, crisp sight picture. Each riflescope in the Legend Ultra HD family isconstructed with a durable yet sleek one-piece tube and offers 100 percent waterproof, fog proof and shockproof performance. Protected with the patented RainGuard HD lens coating, the permanent, water-resistant lens coating causes moisture to bead up and scatter less light, making the Legend riflescope an all-weather performer.

    The new Legend Ultra HD 10x 25mm folding compact binocular features wide-angle BaK-4 roof prisms for incredible edge-to-edge sharpness and detail. Bushnell enhances the viewing experience with its fully-multi coated lenses to maximize light transmission and deliver superior brightness. Built with a magnesium chassis and wrapped in a non-slip, rubber-armored housing, the Legend UHD compact is 100 percent waterproof and fog-proof. Add to that the RainGuard HD water-repellant technology and you have a high-quality compact binocular ready to perform, rain or shine.
