Subject: Ranger optics in Afganistan and Iraq
Rating: 5 (of 5)
Before deploying to Iraq a few years ago with the 10th Mountain Division, I gave my son a pair of 8x42 Ranger Platinum binos. Since then they have also seen service in Afganistan. (my son is in the infantry) These binoculars now look like they have been through a war. They look terrible; however, the optics and function are just as good as ever. They have taken a beating, but still perform so well. This is a very good product.
