Bushnell binoculars: Always best for the price!
Bushnell company overview
Bushnell was founded in 1948 in California, and has been a big competitor in sporting optics since then. Binoculars was the first product category of it, which has remained the target of the middle class till now. Actually, it was quite reasonable since the initial strategy was to make use of the cost-effective advantage from manufacturers in Hongkong, Japan, Taiwan combining with David P. Bushnell’s (the founder) patented specifications. To our research, Bushnell has expanded their manufacturers’ lists to those in China as well.
Besides binoculars, the brand also offers a wide range of other products such as: telescopes, riflescopes, GPS devices,… The company is also well-known for an activity partnering with Folds of Honor to support families of fallen veterans.

More on efficiency reviews
On one hand, the Bushnell binoculars are cheap, but on the other hand, many of the cheap binoculars use fully-multi coated lenses (e.g: the H2O model). Which means, Bushnell binoculars really invest in a product to ensure the light-transmission is GOOD. So far, we mostly never felt disappointed with the brightness, image cleanliness of Bushnell products.
Nearly all the binoculars use Roof Prism to result in a lightweight product, which it is. However, the durability is still good enough. Usually, the rubber outer cover from Bushnell is thick and textured to reduce slippery.
Do they have any flaws, definitely, especially for low-segment products. You can still swipe around affordable yet high quality brands like Celestron, Nikon, Vortex,… However, Bushnell binoculars are still great to start with in many cases.
