From the Manufacturer
The ultimate on-the-water viewing companions, our ever-popular H20 binoculars have been enhanced with a Soft Texture Grip to keep them on board and in your hands in the most challenging conditions. Just as before, they’re O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged to ensure stunning views no matter how wet they get. To maximize light transmission and clarity, standard equipment includes multi-coated optics and premium
quality BaK-4 prism glass. From the streamside to the Gulf Stream, the world simply looks better through the Bushnell H20.
In recent years, the popularity of the roof prism design has increased dramatically. These binoculars are rugged and durable, and you no longer have to spend more money to get good optical quality in this design.
Porro prism models will deliver good optics for the dollar, but lack the durability and compact styling of roof prism models. In addition, many Porros are not waterproof.

The 8x42's field of view is of course somewhat wider than that of the 10X42, but what really strikes one is that in dull conditions the 8x42 is noticeably brighter. (The 8X42 lets in 25% more light with an exit pupil of 5.25mm as opposed to the 10X42's exit pupil of 42mm, and I can assure you that on a dull day you will notice the difference.) So in a nutshell, if you are buying only one pair, my advice is to get the 8x42. You will find that because it gathers more light it can be used effectively both earlier and later in the day than the 10x42. If you buy the 10x42 instrument first, you will probably find, as I did, that you also need the 8x42. On the other hand, if you buy the 8x42 first, it is quite possible that you will never feel the need of a 10x42. (Incidentally, I use both instruments about equally; each is suited for different purposes and each functions optimally in slightly different conditions. On a dull day the 8X42 will show you more than the 10X42; On a bright day, the opposite is normally the case.)
Some reviewers criticise these H2O roof prism binoculars on the grounds that they lack they lack the brightening effect of "phase-correction" and "fully" multi-coated optics. This may indeed be a point to consider if for some reason your heart is set on a 10X42 instrument and nothing else will do.Read more ›
As I used to own a Bushnell Spacemaster Scope I knew how well that was made and decided to look at these, after reading the reviews I decided to go for the 8 x 40 (even though I had always had 10 x 40 ), I was really pleased with the quality and after using them for the first time today in grey ovecast conditions all I can say is Wow! these are better than any pair I have had in the past and for this price you can not go wrong, I have use binoculars that are three times this price and you would be hard pushed not to say these are up there with them, it may be a few years before I replace these (unless of course I drop them).
The binoculars are not particularly light but fit comfortably in the hands. I have found the focus to be clear and sharp with a reasonably bright image - even in overcast winter conditions.
Definitely worth considering for reasonable performance at a good price.
Very happy with them and can't fault them at all.
With this pair the collimation is spot on, the focus is precise, and the view is bright and clear. As a bonus the lens caps are all captive so can't be lost or mislaid.

Superb binoculars. The hardest thing about them is fitting the eye covers to the strap. Very good at bringing plenty of light in - work well in most lights - superb clarity. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Liz
