The Glacier 8x42 from Meade is a reasonably priced binocular that compares favorably to many higher-priced offerings. Sporting a rubber-coated body that's fully protected against the elements, fully multicoated lenses, and BAK4 roof prisms for a clear view - this binocular is a serious companion for every outdoor adventure.

Eyeglass wearers will appreciate the lengthy eye relief, and naturalists will admire this fine optic's close-focusing capability. A wider field of view, steady hand-held viewing, and excellent twilight performance are all benefits of its moderate yet favorable 8x magnification.
