A customer came to the Northern Optics public optics weekend at the Waters` edge visitor centre Barton looking for a set of lightweight binoculars for bird watching. 8x magnification was another major factor due to the wider field of view.
After some thought, the two options were the Hawke Nature-Trek 8×32 and 8×42 binoculars. At first, the lightweight 8×32 got the nod ahead of the 42mm option due to the weight. But after a few more minutes , they decided that despite being a little heavier, the Hawke Nature trek 8×42 gave the brighter and wider view. These two reasons were why they opted for the 8×42. Compared to the more expensive Endurance, the nature trek range come with a standard soft case as opposed to the Endurance hard case. But the life time warranty remains equal across the Hawke range.
All nature trek binoculars are very user friendly, and available to purchase from Northern Optics
