Hello. Last year, we purchased our first pair of binoculars for a trip to Yellowstone. We bought: Bushnell, 8x42, prism, waterproof. It was great to have them on the trip and allowed us to enjoy wildlife far in the distance at both Lamar and Hayden. However, my husband wants a better pair. In his opinion, the bears in the distance were not much more than black, furry, balls :)
We are headed to Glacier and Yellowstone this August. I would like to get him a better pair for his birthday. Given that our current pair has been used only once in a year and the same will, most likely, hold true with a future pair, I cannot imagine investing too much money - maybe $400.
Any recommendations? Thanks much!
