Description

Nikon 8x42 Trailblazer ATB

 

The big brother of the extremely popular Trailblazer line, the Nikon 8x42 Trailblazer offers the same compact styling, but with more magnifying power. These binoculars feature arsenic-free Eco-Glass optics wrapped it into a tough, rubberized body for comfortable viewing. Features include generous eye relief, turn-and-slide rubber eyecups, waterproof, fogproof performance and bright, multicoated lenses. Light enough for long trips, yet big and bright enough to be your stand-alone binocular, the 8x42 is ready for any adventure.

    Went to Africa three days after receiving the binoculars. We used them every day for 9 days on numerous game drives. We were able to focus on game at a distance and up close with relative ease. All in all the binoculars worked just great. One drawback has nothing to do with the lenses and their ability to focus. We lost a lens cap the first day that was secured onto the strap. There has to be a better way to secure the lens caps on binoculars.

    Great optics for casual viewing. I'd fully appreciate the quality of the glass, but Hayneedle sent me used and dirty binocs just thrown back into the box without sealing it up. Totally awesome. I'd give this -5 stars, but the system is biased toward giving stars...even when you don't deserve them.

        Will use these most for birdwatching in PA and FL.
        They have good resolution even wearing glasses.
        A little heavier than expected but not alot.
        the end caps are all individual and not connected in any way- easy to lose.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Thanks for sending a haphazardly thrown together product. I guess it's new, since that's what your website said. I wouldn't be too sure, since the box came without any seal, the binocs were placed into a crumpled up plastic bag with no seal, the caps were half-on and half-off, the manuals were sloppily thrown in the box, and all the glass was dirty. I purchased this as a gift for someone else and was dismayed at how you sold your products. Unsatisfactory. I would never buy from Hayneedle again. Ever.

            Shopped around quite a bit for these Nikon binos. Will be a great starter set for birdwatching, and also useful on our hiking trips and going to sporting events. Easy to handle, sharp focus, bright image. You could pay a lot more and get much less. Very happy with this purchase.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Very prompt delivery, ordered on Thursday night, arrived Saturday noon.

            Shipped very well, BNIB. Can't ask for more.

                Excellent glasses for the cost. Best I've seen in a while. Although a bit heavy, that doesn't seem to affect the performance. Very clear images. I am going to buy another pair for my wife!
