Summary: I have been in the market for an affordable night vision unit for over 1 year. I couldn't decide which unit to purchase because I limited my budget to under $300. After assessing my needs, I came to the conclusion that I would mainly use it for spotting critters at night during hunting and having fun with my son while camping. This unit does just that ! It works perfectly, it is rugged and most of all water proof.
Pros: easy to use, value for the money, fits my needs
Summary: First off, some reviews think that a $200 or $300 unit should be equal to military generation 2 NV, really? There is no comparison because military units cost thousands vs. hundreds for Yukon products. For the money this is a great deal, period. I now own 3 Yukons and they all work as they are supposed to. In fact, I was impressed by the quality of these cheaper units. A good buy for the money and do not expect military level NV.
Summary: I found this product to be well worth the money. I have no complaints. If you're like me and want to have an edge this hunting season, or you just want to observe wild life at night, this is what you need.
Summary: This is my first night vision scope so I'm no pro with these things. I picked this unit because it is water - tight, and has 3x42 optics which I think will suit me out on the water and will try it this spring. I did take it into a natural area last night - it was overcast and I thought the image was pretty amazing. I could see down a straight 1/3 mile trail that leads to a bay and I could see the reflected flashes of a lighthouse off the water that is many miles away.
