  • Description

    The Bushnell 8x42 Legend E-Series Binoculars are built for spectacular performance out in the field.  With a waterproof, ruggedized exterior, anti-reflection Wide Band fully multi-coated optics, and phase-coated BaK-4 prisms, these Bushnell Legend E Binoculars will enhance all of your outdoor adventures for years to come.  

    State-of-the-art anti-reflection coatings capture light

    To assure astounding brightness, true colors and sharp views, all air-to-glass optical surfaces feature multiple layers of Bushnell's Ultra Wide Band, anti-reflective coatings. The fully multi-coated, lead-free glass optical system of the Bushnell Legend E delivers the brightest, highest contrast images with the least amount of eye strain, because only a very small percentage of light is lost before it reaches the viewer's eye.  

    In addition, the high quality BaK-4 prism used in this pair of Legend E binoculars is PC-3 Phase Coated to enhance resolution and contrast even further.

    Durable magnesium chassis with protective rubber coating

    The Bushnell 8x42 Legend E Series Binoculars have a lightweight magnesium chassis in a contemporary and extra durable roof prism design.  A rubber armor coating envelopes the metal chassis, providing protection and a comfortable interface.  A textured grip is designed into the rubber armor so that your hands will stay put, even when wet or cold.  The ergonomically placed, over-sized focus knob is deeply ridged to make focusing an easy and precise exercise. 

    Fully protected against moisture, fogging and water sheeting

    The fully waterproof housing of the Bushnell 8x42 Legend E Binoculars is suitable for use in all climates and weather conditions, so you can have peace of mind when unexpected weather rolls in. The rugged roof prism style binoculars are filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent the internal optical elements from fogging when moving between extreme temperatures or using the binoculars in damp conditions.

    RainGuardHD – Bushnell’s patented permanent water-repellant coating—is used on all Legend E-Series binoculars. Not only does RainGuardHD provide excellent waterproof protection for your binoculars, it also causes any water that does land on the glass to bead up. This beading action keeps water from laying in a sheet on your optics and causing a decrease in contrast and sharpness.  There are a lot of waterproof binoculars on the market, but Bushnell's RainGuardHD is truly unique.

    Extremely comfortable eye relief

    With 22mm of eye relief, the Bushnell 8x42 Legend E Binoculars are perfect for all users, even those who like to observe with their eyeglasses on.  Adjustable eyecups twist up or lay relatively flat—set them to the height that works best for you.

    Awesome close focus

    Sometimes we are lucky enough to have the subject of our observations close by. For lesser binoculars, this can be a problem, because not all binoculars focus close enough to take advantage of the situation.  The Bushnell 8x42 Legend E Binoculars focus as close as 6.5 feet, and with their 8X magnification, you'll be able to see minute details on nearby objects that are not normally observable at longer distances. Marvel at the intricacies of an insect, or read the "specials" menu from across the room—you'll love the close focus feature even more once you start thinking about all the ways you can use it!
