Bushnell 10x42 Excursion Overview

  • 1Description

The Excursion 10x42E binocular from Bushnell is aimed squarely at other premium Japanese companies' ~$300 42mm roof prism units. They are every bit as good optically, with a far more robust construction.  The center bridge employs elements from the incredibly tough but discontinued 42mm Elite binocular, a truly beloved instrument known for being able to take quite a few knocks.  

There isn't much not to like about these Excursions; they have excellent handling, construction, resolution, focusing speed and range... in short they are a bona fide winner. The spiffy case, comfy strap and tethered lenscaps included in the package are a nice touch.

The Bushnell Travel Tunes iPod Dock may not be the first companion device one may think of when shopping for a binocular, but a bit of scrutiny will reveal its usefulness. Try to imagine situations or scenarios where one would use a sport optic such as the 10x42 Excursion: casual hiking, sporting events, car camping, backyard wildlife viewing etc. Then, contemplate the introduction of portable, battery-operated, water-resistant speakers to the scene - get the picture?

Although this dock has a built-in iPod charging cradle, it is compatible with all audio devices that have a 1/8" headphone/line out. Its water-resistant, 5 watt, 2.25" speakers with "Z-Bass boost" can be powered either by AC power or by eight C-cell batteries, for up to twelve hours. The rugged and rubberized housing is reinforced with seals around all of the exposed ports, for protection from the outdoor elements.
