2 comments Jan 16, 2020

Whether you are into overlanding, hiking, wildlife watching, stargazing, or just an outdoor lifestyle - binoculars are essential for enhancing the enjoyment of your adventure travels. But how do you choose the right binoculars for your needs? We sit down with Matt as he discusses some basics for choosing the right kind of binoculars, including the following feature set:

  • Size and weight
  • Clarity of vision
  • Magnification Power
  • Light Capture (brightness)
  • Field of View
  • Ease of Focus
  • Eye Relief
  • Price
  • Extras

The other defining feature for binoculars is of course: Quality. We personally recommend the German company Steiner Optics for this very reason. Steiner has great customer service, great warranties, and simply makes outstanding products.

In the video Matt mentions three binoculars:

Steiner Predator AF (10x42)

Steiner Safari 10x26

Steiner Safari 10x42
