Field Tested: Bushnell Legend 10 x 3 Binoculars

A mid-sized set of binoculars with great optical clarity and a secure grip

Intel: www.bushnell.com; ($179.99); 20.7 oz.; 5 x 3.75 in.

One more high quality, mid-sized bino which has the magnification to bring things in close while enough illumination to maximize low-light situations. Great optical clarity and both water/fog proof. I also like the ridged grip for secure viewing.
