nikon Monarch ATB 8x42 binocular

Bowhuntr64, Hunting & Fishing Gear
9 June 2006
  • Conclusion: Great binoculars. For my purposes of whitetail hunting in the mid-west, there is nothing better for the price.
  • Pros: They are very lightweight and crystal clear!
  • Cons: Though they are "fog proof" there are some times in the rain or cold that they seem to fog up a bit.

Nikon Monarch ATB 8x42 camo

Danny Sullivan, Hunting & Fishing Gear
25 July 2005
  • Conclusion: Despite the cheap accessories, this is probably one of the best purchases I have made. And what do you expect for accessories when you pay about 250 and get 2-3x the performance. I really can't say that about any other piece of archery eq. that I have.
  • Pros: They are a very nice looking pair of binos. The RealTree camo used on the binos adds to the look (doesn't look cheap or cheezy). I think that they'll do nicely for this upcoming bowhunting season, as they are quite compact for 8x42. I took a chance on these. I bought without being able to find an...
  • Cons: The accessories leave something to be desired. I would gladly have paid a few dollars more for a better case and for better lense caps that snap locked. The case sags after a while closing with a small strap of velcro, and the caps are shallow with thin plastic. I gave the strap to my preschooler...

Nikon Monarch ATB 8x42

John Gierke, Hunting & Fishing Gear
13 June 2004
  • Conclusion: It is one thing to be satisified with equipment that you purchase after a long, painful search, and it is quite another when your buddies admire your stuff. These binoculars are admired by all who handle them, and without hesitation or solicitation (fishing for compliments).
  • Pros: Peoples' tastes mature, generally switching from simple and cheap to more elegant and complex--which tend to be more expensive. Our tastes mature differently for different things. I buy the most expensive coffee, but yet medium priced wines and beer. Most of my tools are also the best, yet I shoo...
  • Cons: They are a little heavy at 26 oz. I didn't use weight as a critical factor in my search, I don't know if comparable units in terms of features exist at lighter weights, maybe thats why one needs to graduate to the elite $1000 level at some point. Although minor aspect, but one that affects its us...

Crystal clear

Michael Ryan "raggedd", Amazon

  • Summary: The NIkon Monarch bino's are excellent - they focus well, and provide a sharp, clear image, which is exactly what I wanted. Mainly used to watch birds in the garden, but I've taken them on hikes, and long range imagery is highly satisfactory, given the binoculars' weight and size.

Best binocs for birding and general use for the price

alexmac999, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: had the glasses for a year now and have used them a lot for birdwatching in damp and dismal Wales also generally in much warmer Portugal. Weight is a good balance and the 8x42 is just right for general use. Robust and easy to use.
