Bushnell Elite 7x26 Custom Compact Binocular
Bausch & Lomb's Bushnell Division, back in the 1960's got it right, when the first Elite 7x26 Compact was introduced. NASA was so impressed that the 7x26 Elite Custom was on every Gemini space mission.
As a testament to that original single-coated model, little has changed except for the fully multi-coated lens w/ Rainguard HD. The reverse Porro prism optics allows for jaw-dropping clarity, as was evidenced the first time I put them up to my eyes.
They weigh a light 12 oz. and with the perfectly placed thumb indentations, they fit into one's hands as if they are an extension of them. Outstanding 16 mm eye relief & an over-sized 363' FOV sum up the features that make these binoculars a perfect traveling companion for nature observation and sporting optics.
Bushnell's Elite Lifetime Limited Warranty on materials/workmanship are for the life of the binocular, and Bushnell's 110% Bulletproof Money Back Guarantee promises complete satisfaction or a full refund of purchase price. What's not to like?
