Bushnell Trophy XLT 8x42 Bone Collector Binoculars
Great for Hunting
Honestly gravitated toward these because of the camo pattern. However once I tried them out I found many more reasons to love them, focus and range is great and its easy to get a good sight even with my glasses on.

Well made and very clear glass now I can see thru the woods and pick out definition on the other side

Great price, but poor optics.
This Bone Collector Binocular is a great price but really lacks quality in optics. While the center view is great, distortion at about 50% of the optics begins to get blurry and provides useless optics at the edge. If you don't care about edge of glass to edge of glass clear optics, then these are for you. I used them for deer hunting this year and while functional, noticed the distortion when I focused on a distant object and then moved the object away from the center of the binocular.
A good deal for the price but not a quality hunting optic.

Very clear optics....bad cover and cap design.
I really am please with these nocs. They really need to do a better job with the covers as if you hunt you will lose them the 1st time you go out. I promise that. After seeing that they fall right off I glued them on the night before my first hunt of the season and they are holding up nice.

Could be smaller, but awesome to use
Bought these for glassing the field edges during early morning and late evening hunt times, and I couldn't be happier. Haven't made it afield for the deer yet, but the whole family has been using them at dawn to check out the far side of our pond, and their light gathering is excellent, field of view generous and focus is easy. The covers for the objective lens tend to slip off, I may do without or hit them with a dab of superglue. Also, for a hunting set of binoculars, these are maybe 20% larger than I'd really like. . .but the light gathering makes up for it. Only other weak point is the strap, which is a bit flimsy. I'd suggest a chest harness for them.

Great Binoculars for a great price!
My mother in-law bought these binoculars for me for christmas and I haven't put them down. I can"t believe the clarity of the the sight picture. I tried the expensive pair of nikon but the picture was not as good in low light. During the early morning and late afternoon hunt they are just great in the low light. If you are looking for a great pair of binoculars at a great price you can't beat them. My buddy saw mine and went out the next day a bought the same ones. I have bushnell scpoes on all my guns. Thanks Bushnell for a great product at a great price.
