Barska X-Trail Binoculars Review and Giveaway
This next item is standard equipment for a road trip and always keeps my children busy and entertained. I received a set of Barska X-Trail Binoculars from Wind and Weather. My husband loves them! This set is great because it comes with a carry bag, neck strap, tripod and tripod adapter.
I was surprised at how large these binoculars are! Here is some technical information:
2. Objective Lens 70mm
3. Field of View 231ft @ 1000yds
77m @ 10000m
4. Close Focus 49.2ft/15m
5. Prism Glass BAK-4
6. Exit Pupil 4.7mm
My children enjoy looking at birds and other wildlife, along with the clouds, mountains, and anything else they want to get a better look at on the road trip. They take turns using the binoculars and spotting different things.
When we stop at rest areas or other sites they can set the binoculars up on the tripod on a table, or other flat surface. Makes the binoculars more steady and they can then find something to focus on and leave it there for the next person to see. These will definitely be going on more trips with us!
Another great thing is we are visiting in Illinois and they can watch the birds on the feeders. We have seen several Finches, a couple of Woodpeckers, both a male and female Cardinal, many Grackle, and a few others. Most of the finches are a beautiful yellow!
I will add more pictures tomorrow of the Barska Binoculars being used at the Mississippi River.
These binoculars would make a great gift for a birdwatcher, a hunter, hiker, or anyone who enjoys seeing things up close.
