Meade 125042 overview

  • 1Description

The black 8x42 Rainforest Pro Waterproof Binocular from Meade combine optical technologies with light-gathering ability to create an observing tool that will perform well from dawn to dusk and in all weather conditions. Phase corrected BAK 4 prisms and anti-reflection fully multicoated optics maximize the light that enters the 42mm objectives to produce images that are bright and clear with true high-contrast color. A 63° apparent field of view provides expansive views on the trail, on the hunt, or at the stadium. Its nitrogen-filled optical tubes ensure that they won't fog with temperature fluctuation. The Rainforest Pro features an o-ring sealed waterproof aluminum alloy housing that is covered with a textured rubberized armor to protect it from drops and impacts while providing a non-slip grip.

8x42 Rainforest Pro Waterproof Binocular (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I am very satisfied with this pair of binos. I compared them side by side with a much more expensive model and these are more crisp. Build quality is great. Amazing what you get for this price! I bought it for my gf, but might buy one for me too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product at this price point Well made item that reviewed very well given its price. Features on these are usually on much more expensive binoculars and the waterproofing was a big selling point

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend this product for it's price range These binoculars are very bright meaning they have good coatings particularly for this price level. The eye relief is really nice, as we now don't need to remove our eyeglasses to get things focused. A real improvement from our previous inexpensive Bushnells. We like the compact roof prism design much better than the bulky porro prism Bushnells.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed A lot of bang for the buck. The image quality on these are every bit as good as on much more expensive bins, but I guess that's why these were awarded as the best value in 2015. Meade did a very good job on these binoculars. Its amazing they can still sell them at such an inexpensive price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very usable binoculars These binoculars are fairly small, light and easy to hold. The image quality compares well with my Bushnell 7X50 binoculars and they are much smaller. My only complaint is with the carrying case - it is a bit too tight. The binoculars fit very snugly before I put on the neck strap, but now there is almost no space to stuff in the strap and it's padding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for the price We use these to watch birds out our back door. They work very well. They are light enough for hand holding, but are better on the tripod we bought. The focus was stiff at first, but got easier as we used them. We haven't tried them for astronomy yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs I haven't had a decent pair of binoculars in decades.� I just about dropped these the first time I used them because they were so much better.� And great quality.� Very good fiedl of view, crisp, bright, good color, a bit heavy.� These are all you need and more for birdwatching.� At this price you can buy one for the car and keep one handy at home too, and if you drop them you won't get all that upset.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I will probably get myself a pair,too. Bought these binoculars for my friend's birthday, she went nuts over them. I checked them out before giving them to her, they are great value for the money, my only con was they were a little heavy, but otherwise great.
