Gskyer Multi Coated Waterproof 8×42 Bak4 Prism Binoculars, AX18-8X42 Review
Gskyer Multi-Coated Waterproof 8×42 Bak4 Prism Binocular
Gskyer AX18-8X42 is a hot new release pair of binoculars with an 8×42 Bak4 Prism and 369 feet field of view at 1000 yards. They are built very solid, robust and durable- to last a long time and come with the totally multi-coated optics that make them waterproof for wet weather conditions.
Gskyer Binoculars weigh just 1.65 pounds (26.4 ounces) and have the measurements of 1.97 x 5.63 x 4.92 inches. They have the optimal compact size and low weight for when you are out and about, and you don’t want something large and heavy hanging off your body. They are shipped in a solid case and include a nice strap for you to wear them around your neck.
They come with some great technical specs and features including a lens diameter of 42mm, 8 times magnification, mini focus distance of 6.56 feet (or 2m), F7°- degree field, 18-millimeter eye relief, and 5-millimeter exit pupil. These binoculars are very nice to look at, with their sleek, modern and ergonomic design. And they would work very well for things like birdwatching or other animal watching in wildlife or fishing.
You may want to use them in situations where you want to keep distant, as they include a very easy to operate focus function (easier than some other models we experienced before). For the lower price point, they seem to be pretty good value, with the clear and sharp picture, ease of use, solid build with good quality components that will make them last longer despite being lightweight and compact in size.
Gskyer is a well known and trusted brand in China with a variety of good quality and functional telescopes, binoculars, and tripods. And you can’t go wrong with the AX18-8X42 model of this brand if you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of binoculars. The eyepieces are quite comfortable and effortless to focus and you can enjoy the great quality image with clarity and sharpness.
Gskyer has about 25 years of history and they have been offering Chinese consumers binoculars and telescopes with precise optics, great quality raw materials and very high value at lower prices. Being US stock, these are sent quickly via Amazon.com and are easy to set up once you take them out of the package. These are obviously not the best on the market, but may be hard to beat for the price level. They offer very good value for money.
