  • Description

    The Bushnell 8x42 Legacy Binoculars are built for spectacular performance out in the field.  With a classic black, waterproof, ruggedized exterior to fully multi-coated optics and BaK-4 prisms, these Bushnell Legacy's will enhance all of your outdoor adventures for years to come.

    Legacy binoculars for birding, wildlife, travel, and so much more

    Bushnell's 8x42 Legacy binoculars have large 42mm front objective lenses for amazing light-gathering capabilities, and a medium-magnification setting of 8X.  This is the perfect birding binocular, allowing you to see into the shadow of a bush or tree, or catch natural behaviors during the magic hours of dusk and dawn.  And with a magnification of 8X, you will be able to hand-hold your binoculars comfortably for longer periods of time and still keep a steady, shake-free view. 

    All air-to-glass surfaces feature multiple layers of Bushnell's proprietary optical coating. The fully multi-coated optical system delivers bright, high contrast images, and the superior BaK-4 prisms help increase contrast even further.

    100% waterproof and fogproof

    The 8x42 Legacy Binoculars are waterproof and fogproof.  Once the binoculars have been assembled, the interior is purged with Nitrogen to clear the body of any moisture and then and sealed to keep it out.  With waterproof binoculars, you do not have to worry about observing in humid environments, and if you get caught in the rain, its no big deal.

    Waterproofing does more than just keep water on the outside where it belongs. The process also keeps your lenses from fogging up in high humidity, or worse, growing fungus internally-an event that has caused the death of a multitude of binoculars and camera lenses. 

    Wide field binoculars for more natural views

    The Bushnell 8x42 Legacy binoculars have a nice, wide field of view.  Center your target in this wide visual field, and you will be able to watch its movements without adjusting the position of your binoculars.  No one wants to feel like they are looking down a cardboard tube, and with the Bushnell Legacy, you definitely won't!

    Twist up eyecups with 18mm of eye relief

    Not all of us have 20/20 vision, and Bushnell took that fact into account when they designed the 8x42 Legacy binoculars. Twist up rubber eye cups allow the user to adjust the eye relief to provide a clear field of view for everyone, even eyeglass wearers. Adjust the eye cups until you can comfortably see the full field of view. This is a fast and easy process, and so even if you share your binoculars with others, changes can be made for each person in just a few seconds.
