Top 5 Binoculars

Whether you are hunting whitetail in the Midwest or glassing for elk out west you'll want a great pair of binoculars. The first decision you'll need to make is magnification, most big game hunters will want between 8x to 12x. In a 12x50 pair of binoculars the 12 would be the magnification and the 50 would be the objective lens. The bigger the objective lens the brighter the binoculars image will be, this is crucial when hunting early morning or late in the evening. Most objective lenses for big game hunting will be either 42mm or 50mm. We carry everything from budget friendly binoculars to top of the line binoculars from all of the top brands.

Outfitter approved

I outfit for whitetail and hog in SC as well as one on one guide in Texas for Trophy whitetail. I chose this brand because of the slim design and weight for all day carry. I abuse optics with the amount of dust they are subjected to annually. This won't break the bank and is a quality optic and very clear. I can afford to replace these every year as no matter what, dust build up ruins the best of optics. Easy carry case and chest straps. This is perfect for the average hunter looking for a quality pair of binoculars. Good luck hunting this year!

Swarovski EL Range with Tracking Assistant Ballistic Rangefinder Binoculars

The Swarovski EL Range with Tracking Assistant Laser Rangefinding Binocular can be configured to suit your specific needs and you can transfer your own ballistics data, allowing you to make an accurate assessment of every hunting situation. Three different ballistic curves can be fed into the EL Range TA via a built-in Bluetooth interface. Unlike all the other settings, which can also be adjusted on the binocular itself, configuring the ballistics has to be done via the EL Range TA Configurator App. The range measurement of the EL Range TA is based on a travel time measurement using a laser. The range can be measured between 10 meters (10.9 yards) and 2000 meters (2187 yards). The Tracking Assistant helps the hunter to identify the target area by measuring back to the point where the shot was fired. This can be done in two ways: via the EL Range TA and via the app. After establishing the Bluetooth connection, one of the EL Range TA’s last three measurements is selected. The starting point can be selected manually or displayed automatically. If you do it automatically, it is important that you are still in the exact spot where the measurement was taken. Afterward you can let your phone guide you toward the target area (arc-shaped search field). The EL Range is the latest demonstration of the innovateiveness that lies at the heart of Swarovski Optik. It combines Swarovision technology with precise range measurement. Spot game quickly and accurately thanks to the precision and edge-to-edge sharpness of Swarovision technology.

What Customers Are Saying

Very pleased, optics have finally closed the gap with non-RF

Been using Swarovski Range for the last two EL Range generations here in Alaska. Friends, and I even rented a pair from an outfit in Colorado until I got my own pair in June of this year. I'm not throwing a review up two days after purchase; nor am I criticizing it for its size since the dimensions and weight are clearly listed in the specs here. The latest design dropped in 2021 and the optical side finally caught up to the EL's. Previous EL Range didn't have alpha grade glass previously due to the laser not being able to effectively pass through the EL coatings. This was solved in the new EL Range TA, and the view is breath-taking, only lacking the wider FOV of the NL Pure. Finally, I'll say these EL TA's have better fit and finish than my NL Pure. There's not a single rough edge or line or fitment, which was not the case with my NL 8X42's, and perhaps in the NL a more delicate focusing assembly. The EL Range TA give a sense of top tier industrial engineering, fit, finish I've not experienced sin...

Amazing glass, especially for the price

I'm a long time hunter. Have been looking for a while for a high quality set of binos that didn't cost over 1k... these Vortex Razor HD's are it! Period!!! Compared them side by side with my brothers swaro SLC's and the difference was essentially imperceptible. Daytime... same performance. Nighttime... "very very tiny" edge to the SLC's but definitely not worth an extra 1k$. With the Vortex Razors I could see the details and grain of the wood of my back fence @80yrds in the dark, where with the naked eye I could not even see the fence.

About Leupold

Leupold was founded in 1907 by brothers-in-law and close friends Fred Leupold and Adam Volpel. Their company, Leupold Volpel & Co, made surveying equipment by hand. In 1942, Leupold adopted its current company name, Leupold & Stevens. Legend has it that while hunting one day in the 1940’s, Marcus Leupold missed a buck because his rifle scope fogged up. He swore he could make a better rifle scope, and that’s exactly what he did in 1947 with the Plainsman. Today, Leupold is an industry leader in the manufacturing of performance optics including hunting rifle scopes, target rifle scopes, tactical rifle scopes, pistol scopes, shotgun scopes, rimfire scopes, muzzleloading scopes, red dot sights, scope mounts, binoculars, range finders, spotting scopes and performance shooting glasses and sunglasses. So be bold. Be Tenacious. Be Relentless. Leupold performance optics are built by hard-working Americans who are committed to upholding Leupold’s legacy of quality craftsmanship.
