Serious bird watchers, in reasonably good condition, will go wherever great birding action is to be found. Half the fun is getting deep into the woods to find the elusive ruffled grouse, half-way up the mountain to get a close look at the eagles on the ledges above, or to the other side of the lake to see the nesting swans. We have an active bunch of regulars who love the adventure of getting there as much as the views to be had when we arrive. Many of us prefer a compact, go-anywhere set of durable binoculars. Those characteristics make the Nikon Monarch ATB 8×36 Binoculars very popular.
Focus on Features
To begin with, these binoculars are the perfect size to fit into a back pack or even a large pocket on a pair of cargo pants. The body is made from polycarbonate resin reinforced with fiberglass, making them both very light and also nearly indestructible. When you are rock-climbing your way to the perfect observation point, with this pair around your neck, both of those characteristics are highly appreciated! The rubber armor aids in the protection of the components, and helps to maintain grip in all weather conditions.
The second set of features that make this a pair worth considering is the easy viewing offered. They adjust well to any eye width, and the turn-and-slide rubber eyecups are very comfortable. They block out light and glare to reduce eye strain in bright conditions.
The Big Picture
This durable pair is a good go-to choice for adventurers in pursuit of their favorite feathered friends. The great optical components deliver crisp, color-perfect viewing, with great contrast. Sighting your object is easy, and focus is quick, giving users the best opportunity for success. The high-tech internal lenses are coated for maximum color brightness and resolution. The Nikon Monarch ATB 8×36 Binoculars are also available in 10×36 size, for just a bit more. These versatile, durable field glasses offer great viewing at a very good price, and that’s the definition of a good value.
