Tasco Binoculars have been around for over 50 years and the company knows how to build a pair that’ll last. First thing to remember about keeping and maintaining a pair of binoculars is clean the lens.
Most pairs include a cloth for wiping the lense just as a pair of glasses for someone visually impaired. I use my binoculars when I’m fly fishing or hiking to get a closer look at birds, salmon, and well as looking for paths to cross when fording creeks or rivers.
I’ve used my binoculars in the rain and had a little trouble because mine don’t have a lip that overextends the edge of the lens but I own a pocket size version. Larger binoculars unlike smaller ones tend to have more spacing between the lens and the end of the product providing protection from rain. Most Binoculars are excellent for bird watching and birds are the easiest thing to find if you know where to look.
Tasco makes lens as strong as 12 x 50mm that can be purchased online. Spotting scopes can provide up to 50x magnification for watching animals that are more alert such as birds of prey and waterfowl.
The thing that impresses me about Tasco is that they don’t include any “bling” on their binoculars because any excess or ornamental designs on binoculars only increase the chance of them getting damaged or snagged. I prefer pocket size binoculars since a larger pair can be uncomfortable during a long hike and difficult to pack in a small to medium travel pack.
