      Comments about Bushnell 8x42 H2O Roof Binocular:

      I have been out a few times now with my H2O binoculars. They are really good value and have incorporated many features that you will find in higher priced models.

      The clarity of view is great and I shared them with a fellow birder who was amazed at the way birds are easily identified. The eye cap adjustment, removable lens caps which are easily accessible and the fog proof water proof optics are excellent.

      Using the harness any concern over the weight of the binoculars are alleviated. As a retiree, value is important and the H20 8 x 42 totally meet my expectations!

        Comments about Bushnell 8x42 H2O Roof Binocular:

        I took these out snowshoeing this weekend and I am very pleased with them. I am not an expert on binoculars but they did exactly what I expected and more. No fogging, very good optics, easy to focus and I didn't even need to wear my glasses because it has a great eye relief. A solid build and feel very confortable to hold. I will be using them while hiking, snowshoeing and biking.

        Comments about Bushnell 8x42 H2O Roof Binocular:

        impressed with the clarity of the lens and ease of focus adjustment. The twist up eye cups are a handy feature for individual persons eye length adjustment.The side grip contours give the user confidence when holding in wet conditions.
        slight downside is the weight but still not as heavy as the 7x50
