Hawke Nature-Trek 8x42 Details

Winner of the Best Binocular Reviews award as the best low cost binocular in 2014, you can be sure that these 8x42 binoculars offer extremely good value for money and make a fantastic choice for any wildlife observer or birdwatcher shopping on a budget.
The use of good quality optics and coatings, as well as the 5mm exit pupil, make sure that you are presented with a bright, high quality view even in low light conditions. This along with the moderate 8x magnification means you are easily able to keep the image steady and makes them a great choice for use in areas like woodlands and forests or at times when the light is less than optimal.
The ample field of view assists you in many ways, but most importantly it really helps to make it easier as well as faster for you to locate your subject in the view and then in the case of something like a fast-moving bird, it is so much simpler to follow when viewed at close range.
A good minimum focus distance of only 2 meters means that as well as the more common uses, these are also suitable should you sometimes like to view things like insects and flowers from very close range.
This model also has a full 18mm of eye-relief which is not only more than enough for most users, but will surely be sufficient should you wear glasses whilst binning.

About Hawke Nature-Trek Binoculars

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-lightweightwaterprooffog-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 birdwatchershunters and other wildlife enthusiasts.

Basic Features

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. 

Optical Properties

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.

Accessories

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.
