Sporting a magnification and objective lens size favored by hunters, birders, and avid outdoor enthusiasts around the world, the Meade 10x42 RidgeWay Binocular performs even when observing in challenging light conditions. Outfitted with BAK4 roof prisms and anti-reflection fully coated lens surfaces, the binocular delivers bright and sharp high-contrast images with true-to-life color and crisp clarity. The 42mm objectives gather generous amounts of light to further boost performance in less-than-ideal conditions without the bulk and weight of larger objectives.

Designed to withstand the rigors of the trail, the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature variations. The chassis is made of a combination of aluminum and plastic and wrapped in a protective rubber armor that provides a slip-resistant grip in the rain. To further cut weight while providing users with more area to grip, Meade employs an open-bridge configuration with a dual hinge. Protecting the objectives and eyepieces are tethered caps that come off fast for easy reaction to glassing opportunities without the possibility of losing them.

Optical Performance

  • High 10x power enables detailed observation and identification at long range
  • 42mm objectives boost low-light performance without adding excessive bulk and weight
  • Compact roof prism design maintains a slim form factor without sacrificing performance
  • BAK4 prisms glass delivers a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Anti-reflection fully coated lenses improve light transmission for bright and clear images with accurate color rendition
  • 294-foot field of view at 1000 yards

Use and Handling

  • Open-bridge/dual-hinge configuration reduces weight without sacrificing strength or stability
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold or wet conditions or when wearing gloves
  • Right-eye dioptric adjustment allows for precise focusing for sharper and clearer views
  • 57-73mm interpupillary adjustment range allows easy use by a wide variety of users
  • Twist-up click-stop rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • 15mm eye relief reduces eyestrain for easier viewing
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils as they open in low light to keep the entire scene in view at all times

Construction Details

  • Bridge design provides more surface area for hands to improve grip security
  • Chassis made of both aluminum and plastic to reduce weight without sacrificing strength or stability
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature and environmental conditions
  • Exterior rubber armor protects against bumps and impacts while offering slip-resistance to the grip
  • Tethered objective caps and one-piece ocular rainguard provide optimum protection against rain and dust while remaining close at hand without the possibility of losing them
  • Weight: 20 ounces
