About Bushnell Outdoor Products

From humble beginnings, Bushnell is now one of the most recognized and reputable sports optics brand in the world.

It all all started back in 1948 when Bushnell first began life as a small mail-order binocular company. Since then the company has grow to become what we now know as Bushnell Outdoor Products that not only produce binoculars, but 15 other product lines with 11 brands that include a very diverse range of products. For example their Golf Range Finders.

One feature that remains at the core of the Bushnell brand is the focus on the outdoors with almost all of their products are related to this sector.

They offer binoculars, scopes, night vision devices and other products for most outdoor pursuits including: spectator sports, nature study (wildlife viewing), hunting, fishing birding and stargazing.

Located in Kansas, the Bushnell brand is one of the most popular in the binoculars and optics industry and I would say certainly one of the leaders in mid to high-performance sports optics.

They have a leading market share in all of the sports optics categories, and their products have consistently won design and performance awards from prestigious organizations.

Bushnell Binocular Range

With now well over 50 years in the optics industry and being one of the largest players in the industry, Bushnell have a massive range to select from and each year many of them get updated an changed. So it is sometimes hard to keep track and keep up!

However if you exclude all their very cheapest pairs, Bushnell in general offer what I think is good value for money in most cases. There are of course exceptions, which I aim to point out for you.

Bushnell Engage Binoculars

Bushnell Engage 8x42 BinocularsA new series, the Engage is aimed at the higher end of the market, but at the same time for those who are also place good value highly on their list of priorities:

Main Highlights

  • Fully Multi-Coated
  • ED Glass Lenses with protective coatings
  • Phase Corrected Bak-4 Roof Prisms
  • Water & Fog Proof Magnesium Body
  • Lockable Diopter

Standout highlights include the use of the same ED lens elements that Bushnell use in the flagship series as well as protective exterior coatings on the lenses.

The chassis is made from Magnesium and I like that it has small details like a lockable diopter, which is a minor fact, but always a good sign of quality.

As with their other top models, Bushnell has a limited lifetime warranty on their Engage binoculars.

Models Available:

  • Engage 8x42 (Sku: BEN842) - full details & specs
  • Engage 10x42 (Sku: BEN1042)
  • Engage 10x50 (Sku: BEN1050)
  • Engage 12x50 (Sku: BEN1250)

Bushnell Legend Ultra HD Binoculars

Bushnell Legend Ultra HD BinocularsOne of Bushnell's most popular series is the Legend Ultra HD and with a modern stylish finish, impressive features, great stats and relatively low cost, it is easy to see why:

Main Highlights

  • Fully Multi-coated Optics
  • Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Glass
  • Phase Correction Coatings on Bak-4 Roof Prism Models
  • Magnesium Body on some models
  • Rainguard Lens Coating

The use of ED Prime glass elements in their lenses helps to minimize color fringing which leads to improved color resolution and contrast in the image you see. The optics on the Legend Ultra HD are also fully multi-coated with Bushnell's Ultra Wide Band coating which dramatically improves light transmission compared to uncoated or only partly coated bins. Phase Correction coatings are also applied to the BaK-4 roof prism models.

The larger models are tripod adaptable and have a lightweight Magnesium body that is both water and fogproof.

Small touches and extra signs of their quality include a locking diopter and a water repellent coating on the exterior lenses that not only mean you get a better view in wet weather, but ensure dirt, grime and oil is less likely to stick on the glass keeping them clean for longer and when you do have to clean them, you can be less vigorous which in turn ensures you don't scratch them.

Bushnell also offers a limited lifetime warranty on their Legend Ultra HD binoculars.

Models Available:

  • Legend Ultra HD 8x42 (Sku: 198042)
  • Legend Ultra HD 10x42 (Sku: 191042)
  • Legend Ultra HD 8x36 (Sku: 190836)
  • Legend Ultra HD 10x36 (Sku: 191036)

Price Range
The Ultra HD's currently range in price from about $130 to $250 / £120 - £250, depending on where you get them and which model you choose. For current prices and to compare take a look at the link below:

Bushnell Legend E, L & M Binoculars

Bushnell Legend M Series BinocularsSitting under the Legend Ultra HD series within Bushnell's lineup is their "standard" Legend range. Although it gets a little more complicated in that this range is then further sub-divided into three separate sub-series: the E, L & M.

The idea here is that Bushnell wanted to provide the best possible value for money binocular withing three distinct price points.

So all binoculars have a number of shared features:

Legend E Series
At the base are the Legend E series binoculars, which basically focus on keeping costs down, but still offering a good level of performance.

All Legend Series binoculars include a water and fogproof magnesium housing, phase corrected Bak-4 roof prisms, fully multi-coated optics using lead-free glass.

Bushnell Legend L Series BinocularsLegend L Series
Next comes the L Series which take a more balanced view cost and performance. Here is where I think you get the best bang for your buck. For more on this, be sure to read my in-depth Bushnell Legend L Series Binoculars Review that takes you through all their features, specifications and applications.

Improvements to the L Series over the E Series include the use of ED Glass in the lenses and a lockable diopter.

Legend M Series
Then finally you get the Bushnell Legend M series binoculars that focus more on performance and less on price. Here you get just about all the same features and components as that of the Legend Ultra HD, indeed apart from their design (and price), it is difficult to split them apart.

Here the improvements over the L Series include Dielectric coatings on the prisms and an open bridge body design (see the main image above).

Shopping Basket IconPrices & Where to Buy

Bushnell Legend Series binoculars cover a wide range of price points. The least expensive is the Legend E series binocular which start at around $120, then you get the L series that can cost as little as $160, but usually, around $200 and finally the M series which depending on the model will cost around $250 in the US.

Bushnell Elite Binoculars - New ED Versions

Bushnell Elite 10x42 ED BinocularsAn updated version of the very well respected standard Bushnell Elite binoculars, the Bushnell Elite ED Binoculars now feature ED Glass (Extra low dispersion glass) for even brighter and clearer, high definition viewing.

Basically extra low dispersion glass prevents chromatic aberration because it concentrates and directs the wavelength of light more effectively onto your eyes. It does this because the lenses are made from high-quality, high-precision ED Glass that has less air bubbles and glass deformities in them that are more likely to cause image distortion.

The quality continues as they also feature fully multi-coated optical elements with their XTR technology and BaK-4 phase corrected high-reflection prism that give a sharp and high-contrast image over the full field of view.

XTR Technology: Uses 60 layers of coatings on each prism, to harnesses and optimizes light, boosting Elite binoculars to class leading 99.73% light transmission per lens. It's exclusive to Bushnell, and is said to be one of the most efficient means for transporting light through an optical system. The result is unmatched edge-to-edge clarity, contrast and true color imagery.

An interesting coating on the lenses is their RainGuard HD coating that according to Bushnell eliminates lens fogging, boosts brightness and scatters moisture even faster than original RainGuard. Elite binoculars are also 100% waterproof, fog-proof and built around a tough, lightweight magnesium chassis for reliability in the most extreme conditions.

Sizes Available:

  • Elite 10x42 ED Binoculars
  • Elite 8x42 ED Binoculars
  • Elite 7x26 ED Binoculars

  • Bushnell Elite Binoculars - Old Standard Glass Versions

The quality BaK-4 roof prisms with PC-3® phase coating produce outstanding image clarity and contrast. The binoculars are waterproof and fogproof with the Bushnell patented Rainguard® coating that keeps your view clear in almost all weather conditions. Make no mistake these are quality binoculars.

Bushnell Excursion HD Binoculars

Bushnell Excursion HD BinocularsBy Bushnell's standards, this is a small series as it contains only two models, an 8x42 and a 10x42.

Whilst small, the Excursion HD series is an interesting one and in particular the 8x42 model is well worth taking a very close look at if you are interested in a binocular that has a very wide field of view (see stats below), yet is still what I would call relatively inexpensive.

The open bridge body shape and their particular design on the rubber armor gives this series a fairly modern and aggressive look, but also serves a function as it provides a great shape to hold onto when carrying your instrument about in one hand.

Bushnell Excursion HD BinocularsLockable Focus Wheel
Probably one of the most interesting features on these Bushnell Excursion HD binoculars is their lockable central focus wheels. They work in a similar way as binoculars that have a diopter adjustment located on the central focus dial.

So to change focus, you pull the wheel back and it unlocks, you can then focus on different objects at different distances as normal. To lock your focus in place you click it back inwards.

Personally I have never really had a need to do this, but I am sure that there are users out there who would like the focus to remain fixed at a certain distance without any change of it being changed by accident.

As you would expect, these are o-ring sealed and thus watertight and filled with nitrogen gas, the optics inside are resistant to fogging.

Both models are tripod adaptable and have a right eye diopter adjustment wheel, as well as twist-up eye-cups.

Optics
The optical system is fully multi-coated, which ensures as much light as possible passes through each element within the whole pathway.

The roof prisms used are fashioned from high grade BaK-4 glass and they are phase corrected. Bushnell unfortunately do not specify what mirror coating is used on them. My suspicion is at this price they will probably be silver coated which is fine.

Models & Specifications

  • 8x42 Excursion HD
  • 10x42 Excursion HD
Model FOV Eye Relief Min Focus Weight Exit Pupil
8x42 (242408) 426ft 17.2mm 6.5ft 24.3oz 5.3mm
10x42 (242410) 341ft 15.5mm 6.5ft 23.5oz 4.2mm

Field of View
As you can see, both models have a really wide field of view and in particular the Bushnell Excursion HD 8x42 Binoculars really is massive.

Eye-relief is good on the 8x42 and just acceptable for eyeglass wearers on the 10x42.

 

Shopping Basket IconPrices & Where to Buy

Priced in the region of $300 in the US and approximately £230 in the UK, these Excursion HD's look to me to offer a really good price to quality ratio and are well worth keeping in mind if a good all-round binocular with a wide view is what you are after in this price range.

Bushnell Trophy Xtreme Binoculars

Bushnell Trophy Xtreme BinocularsWith the 10x and 12x models featuring large 50mm lenses and the 8x version boasting very large 56mm objectives, there is no doubt that this small sub series of binoculars from Bushnell is squarely aimed at users demanding a good to exceptional performance even in bad light conditions.

I go over this defining characteristic as well as all their other main features and uses in my complete guide to Bushnell Trophy Xtreme Binoculars, but to summarize, these are low cost, but what I would describe as mid performance Bushnell binoculars, especially adapt in low light.

Whilst they are marketed towards the hunting sector, I feel that they will also be perfectly suitable for a wide range of uses depending on your choice of magnification.

Other features include a water and fog proof chassis. BaK-4 roof prisms and fully multi-coated optics that further enhance the image brightness.

All models are tripod adaptable, which is especially important for the 12x model and they all have a large centrally positioned focus wheel, right eye diopter adjustment wheel, and twist-up eye-cups.

An obvious idea, but as yet not fully delivered. Most binoculars with a built in digital camera are not much more than a novelty item.

Bushnell produce 2 models of Digital Camera Binoculars, the Instant Replay that can also capture video and the Image view series.
