The 10x magnification on these Hawke Nature-Trek binoculars provides you with more reach and greater image detail than an 8x instrument making them better suited over longer distances and because the have a narrower view than lower powered devices, they are best used in wide open spaces. And even though these may not be quite as small and lightweight as a full compact binocular, they are considerably less bulky than the 10x42 model.In terms of light gathering, they not quite as capable as larger binoculars, however, the 32mm objectives are able to capture more light than a compact and therefore deliver a brighter image and so offer a great compromise between size and the brightness as well as the quality of the image.These main aspects makes the Hawke Nature-Trek 8x42 binoculars the ideal choice for users like a hunter, nature loving traveler or wildlife photographer who wants a good quality image, but who also carries other equipment and thus needs an easier to carry and pack away instrument.Note that whilst the 13mm of eye relief is acceptable for most users, it may not be enough for those who use eyewear. In this case, consider the 8x32 Nature-Trek which have an excellent 18mm.
Hawke Nature-Trek binoculars received an award for all-round 8x42 model as being the best low cost binocular in 2014. Previously produced with open-bridge design, the Nature-Trek series now integrates single-hinge design build between the top of the barrels, which still gives you enough space for a proper grip. They are ultra-lightweight, waterproof, fog-proof and have great optical features with fully multi-coated system, phase correction and prism coatings as well. They are perfect for everyday use of birdwatchers, hunters and other wildlife enthusiasts.
Nature-Trek binoculars are build out of a polycarbonate body that makes them extremely lightweight. This helps you with comfortable handling for longer periods of time. The portability is less fatiguing and top-hinge design also helps with a better grip, since they leave more space to wrap your hands around. This body is tightly sealed and helps to prevent the water to enter and damage the construction. It also helps to eliminate corroding with the help of nitrogen gas filling, which also prevents internal fogging and occurrence of the mold in a long run. Nature-Trek binoculars are enclosed in rubber armouring, which is very thick and hard. They also integrate a tripod adaptable screw to mount them on a tripod and make steady images. Focusing gives very fine results due to large central focusing wheel, but is less smooth due to little resistance in the mechanism. There is also right-eye diopter below the eyecups that is tightly set on the barrel and won’t move by accident.
Nature-Trek offers binoculars with great optical performance, due to BaK-4 glass and fully multi-coated system. This significantly improves light transmission levels and prevents major distortions to occur such as chromatic aberration or inner reflections. The applied silver coatings and phase corrected coatings on the prisms help with incredibly vivid and crisp images. The series offers wider field of view for quick tracking of the subjects such as big birds. Generous close focusing distance allows you to observe the objects up close, from plants, flowers, insects etc. Nature-Trek binoculars offer multi-positioned eyecups with two click-stops to position your eyes to the proper distance from the ocular lenses without vignetting.
The Nature-Trek comes in a soft case to store binoculars with its own strap for carrying and a belt loop in case you want to carry them around the waist. There are also objective lens covers and eyepiece lens covers against scratches added. For comfortable carrying there is also a neck strap in the box.
