It can be an enlightening experience to watch wildlife in its natural habitat, bringing us closer to our natural environment.

If you rarely leave the city, binoculars might not be for you. (You don’t want to be that creepy guy in the park that people look askance at. You really don’t.)

Though if you are in love with the night sky, you could use binoculars like these from Bushnell to deepen your affair with it. You could see the Orion Nebula; a thing of visual wonder. Or perhaps you live in a city that embraces nature with parks and other spaces?

Now that you’ve thought about what you’d actually do with binoculars if you had them, let’s get into why you might want to consider these individual binoculars.

Why the Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 10×42 binoculars, specifically?

As the introductory paragraph indicated, this pair of binoculars tends to impress its users. When taken along on a countryside jaunt, it does not disappoint.

A strong general approval of a product is not to be dismissed, after all it is the crux of word-of-mouth advertising – though let’s get into a few of the features that come together to create the outstanding experience this Bushnell is said to provide.


These Bushnell binoculars weigh about 2.2 pounds. For your imaginary reference, a pineapple weighs about this much, as does a textbook of regular size (not that chemistry clunker.) Most of us can easily carry about a pair of binoculars of this weight.

10 x 42 viewing

If you are new to the world of binoculars, you’ll need to know what 10 x 42 means, in binocular terms.

The “10” means that you can see an object at ten times the size you’d usually see it, without the aid of awesome binoculars. (Yes, this means that a simple red squirrel could look gigantic in certain circumstances.)

The “42” is this equation refers to the size of the circumference of the objective lens or the lens that you do not put next to your eyes for viewing. (The lens that is larger than the one designer for your eye.)

A circumference of 42 is quite large, meaning that lots of light is let into the binoculars, giving them a better chance of producing a clear image.)

Waterproof and fog proof

If you are an avid hiker or a walker extraordinaire, you’ll know that a little rain should not keep you indoors, unless you want to be indoors a lot or live in Phoenix, Arizona.

Knowing that your binoculars are not put off by rain means that you can set off with them with confidence.

For binoculars to be fog proof is important as a fogged up inner lens can destroy a viewing experience.
