Winner of the award for the Best Safari & Travel Binocular 2016/17 on Best Binocular reviews, these Hawke Endurance ED binoculars offer just about everything you could hope for from a mid-sized instrument including exceptional value for money.
Smaller and more lightweight than your average 42mm binocular, but at the same time not so small so as to adversely affect their image brightness and low light capabilities by too much. These really do make ideal travel binoculars.
The wide field of view helps in a number of ways, including assisting you to quickly locate your intended subject in the view and then making it much easier to follow should it be small, fast and erratic moving like a bird for example.
Easy to pack into a daysack and with a wide view, these are also desired features on a binocular to take along on a camping trip, to an outdoor concert or sporting event.
The 18mm of eye-relief is excellent, which in combination with the quality twist-up cups that make it possible for you to accurately adjust the relief puts this binocular forward as a great option for eyeglass wearers.
A minimum close focusing distance of 2m is also very good and thus a good option if you also like to observe things butterflies, dragonflies or even flowers and birds from very close range. This along with their small size also makes them a good choice to take along to a art gallery or museum.
Endurance ED is Hawke’s award winning series of binoculars, receiving the Best binoculars award in 2016 for 8x32 model. These mid-priced binoculars offer great ergonomics and optical performance due to ED glass and high-quality optical coatings. There are five models available: pocket, all-round and low-light binoculars for everyday use for hunters, birdwatching, hiking, traveling etc. There are two colors available: green and black armouring.
Hawke Endurance ED offer great ergonomics with a top-hinge design. This kind of bridge holding both barrels together leaves a lot of space for more comfortable and safe grip. This design also helps to lean the binoculars more against the face, so the weight distribution is much better. Endurance ED binoculars are also extremely lightweight due to their magnesium chassis, which helps to decrease the weight. This allows you to hold them without fatiguing for longer periods of time. Rubber armouring also helps to protect them against impacts and rugged surface on the sides provides non-slip grip. These Roof prism binoculars come in black or dark green color. The construction is tightly sealed to prevent any ingress of water and dust. Together with nitrogen filling for fog-free construction, they provide protection against corrosion and molding. You can easily use them in bad weather. Endurance ED binoculars are equipped with really large central focusing wheel that helps with extremely smooth and quick adjustments. The grippy surface also allows them to make fine-tune even with the gloves on. To eliminate differences in eyesight there is a right-eye diopter that you can lock.
Hawke Endurance ED are equipped with ED glass for extra-low dispersion ability that decreases chromatic aberration and together with anti-reflective multi-coatings, phase correction coatings and dielectric prism coatings, helps with better image quality. The images are brighter, and razor-sharp from edge to edge with great color rendition and contrast. Endurance ED also offers wider field of view so you are able to see more and thus track down the subjects much faster. Close focusing distance is also quite generous and allows you to observe objects up close, which is extremely convenient for butterfly hunting. These binoculars are also equipped with metal eyepieces that makes these binoculars incredibly durable and robust.
The Endurance ED comes in very hard padded case for storage and protection. There is also neoprene neck strap added, objective lens covers and rainguards for protection of the outer lenses.
