Nikon Aculon A211 10x42 Binoculars:
was $119.95, now $89.98 on Amazon.
Save 25% on a sleek pair of binoculars that offer you quality optics and an affordable price point. For your money, you get excellent ergonomics, rubber eyecups, Bak4 Porro prisms, multi-coated optics and a durable rubber armor coating.
A saving of 25% is nice and no doubt tempting but what about the specs? Are these binoculars worth getting despite the discount? In short, yes, if you want them. At 750g these porro prism binoculars are designed to be as light as possible 760g without sacrificing any quality in terms of the optics.
The 10x magnification is plenty to view distant terrestrial targets as well as get a good look at the night sky, while the 42mm aperture allows a decent amount of light through the lens.
The aspherical multi-coated eco-glass optics deliver a flat field of view with enhanced brightness with a lead and arsenic-free glass composition. The Bak4 Porro prism systems also allow for quality views under different light conditions.
It's built with a durable rubber armor coating for better protection but also for a non-slip grip. It features turn and slide rubber eyecups as well as a smooth central focus knob, so it's easy to have a comfortable viewing experience.
The only downside to this is that it isn't water resistant so you'll have to be careful when using it in wet conditions. Having said that, this is a very good pair of binoculars and it's on sale, so if you're in the market for just that, this could be what you're after.
