Get The Best Binoculars With The Best Field Of View

Our binoculars offer a wide field of view, so you can see more of the bird without having to move your head. They also have high magnification, so you can get a close-up look at even the smallest birds.

Clarity In Any Condition

EXO Barrier, quite simply, is the best protective lens coating technology Bushnell has ever developed. Added at the end of the coating process, EXO Barrier molecularly bonds to the lens and its microscopic pores in the glass. The result is an ultra-slick coating that repels water, oil, fog, dust and debris - rain, snow fingerprints and dirt will not stick. EXO Barrier is built to last: the bonded coating will not fade from the passage of time or normal wear and tear.
