A customer came to the Northern Optics weekend display at the Waters` edge visitor centre at Barton Upon Humber looking for a lightweight set of binoculars for general use.
After trying a few sets, she chose the Hawke Endurance 8×32 binoculars. Despite being slightly heavier than hoped for, they ticked all the other boxes. These important factors included great optics, ease of use and being suitable for spectacle wearers.
These are now discontinued, but are still available from a select number of Hawke UK dealerships including ourselves (at the time of this review). The Endurance range offer exceptional optics with superb handling. Not the lightest 32mm binoculars, but this is due to the solid construction and rubber armour
