Twod 10×42 mm Binoculars Review

Twod 10x42 mm Binoculars

Buy at Amazon

My son WT (or as he likes to be called TNTell the YouTuber) has become more and more interested in shooting.  To help guide him appropriately I have been working on skills that can help him be a better shooter.  Namely being more responsible, thoughtful, and to have a greater attention to detail.  Obviously that is hard with a 6 year old, so I try to make it fun.

I got him these 10×42 mm Binoculars to help with the attention to detail.  I want him to learn to observe and just see.  It is my hope that I can both fuel his imagination and raise his observation skills in a fun way by letting him play with some optics.

On to the review:

I did not really expect much from $25.00 optics, but I have to say, these are pretty nice.  They are not toys.  They have easy to use controls with one dial moving both sides together.

Here are some features:

  • Fully coated optics and lightweight BaK4 roof prism for clear, crisp images even in low light or poor light condition
  • Durable rugged rubber housing provides a secure, non-slip hold, and durable external protection.
  • Center Focus Wheel requires minimal rotation for quick sharpness from close up to far
  • Right-eye diopter is adjustable and twist-up eye-cups for comfortable viewing with or without eyeglasses
  • Nitrogen purged for 100% waterproof and fogproof performance. Binoculars comes with neck strap and carry case

Amazon also shows some additional specifications:

  • Magnification: 10 x
  • Objective Lens Diameter: 42 mm
  • Exit Pupil: 4.2 mm
  • Linear Field of View: 293 feet/1000 yards
  • Interpupillary Distance:60-80 mm
  • Height: 5.9 inches
  • Width: 5.2 inches
  • Weight: 21 oz

The 25.99 Package Includes:

10×42 mm Binoculars, a neck strap and attached lens covers, a carry case, a cleaning cloth and a manual.

With my glasses, I had a hard time seeing through the binoculars, it wasn’t that the eye cups were uncomfortable with my glasses, it was the eye relief.  When I raised my glasses the field of view improved.   I am not quite ready to blame the binoculars, but this model was a little harder to use with glasses than some others I have owned.

If you can overlook this, or it does not apply, then these Twod 10×42 binoculars are a great value at the $25.99 price.
