Boy Scout* Gear Round Up – Bushnell Bear Grylls 8X25 Compact Binocular

Sunday, November 3rd, 2013

There’s a wide variety of survival tools for the outdoorsman currently available in the market, including knives, flashlights, belts, etc. We purchased a small variety of survival tools, and put them to the test with our own weekend warriors, our three Boy Scouts. The rules were simple. They could select any of the products that wanted but had to write about their impressions.

Each week, we’ll feature a new product review written by one of the Scouts.

BG Binos

  • Magnification X Obj Lens: 8x 25mm
  • Close Focus (ft/m): 14 / 4.6
  • Lens Coating: Multi
  • Field of View [email protected] / [email protected] 1000m: 360 / 120
  • Adapt to Tripod: No
  • Eyecups: Twist-Up
  • Eye Relief: 13.5
  • Focus System: Center
  • Exit Pupil (mm): 3.2
  • Prism Glass: BaK-4
  • Water/Fog Proof: Yes
  • Prism System: Roof
  • Weight (oz/g): 10.2 / 290
  • Size Class: Compact
  • I like these binoculars because they’re waterproof and shock resistant. I can take them with me in a lot of environments and they still work. It’s also nice that they’re compact, so I can fit them in my pack with the rest of my gear and still have space left to store other items.
