A good pair..
of binoculars is something everyone should have. We were all hanging out at the beach, when my father-in-law used his field glasses to get a closer look at the pod of dolphins swimming by. It made me think that these were such a great thing to have handy. So, I consulted with the man himself to find out what to look for when making such an investment. Here is what he advises (and surprisingly price wasn’t at the top of the list):
-First they should provide a quality, clear and detailed picture.
-Second, the binoculars have to be durable.
-Third, they have to be light and portable.
-The last thing should be the price.
That said, there are a number of choices. Bushnell has been in the business for some time and makes some nice choices. Same holds true for Leupold. Get a good pair, you’ll have them a long time and they might just become an heirloom.
