About this deal

Carson Optical currently offer a wide range of binoculars suitable for most uses including travel, bird watching, wildlife observation, hiking and camping as well as hunting, sporting events. Before I bought this I was using my brother's Nikon Monarch 5 12x42 binoculars and this Carson performs just as well IMHO and that's darn good as the Nikon Monarch 5 uses ED glass. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously. Before I realized that the case was designed to be "worn" by the binoculars, I was a little surprised when I found that there was no eye-piece (rain guard) or objective lens covers supplied with these Carson binoculars.

BAK4 roof prisms with multi-coated optics and phase coating supply crisp, clear, color-true observing. The Carson XM Series Binoculars also feature a rubberized armor coating and the body is nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed making them waterproof and fogproof. On top of this, the inside air has been replaced with nitrogen, which will help stop any internal fogging of the lenses. But right at the top of the Carson 3D Series is the 10x42mm TD-042ED model that also comes with ED Glass. is located in Happauge, Long island, NY which is also where the US plant of Meopta is located although there doesn't appear to be any relationship between them.Your privacy is important to us, and any personal information you supply to us is kept strictly confidential. The very cheapest optics have no anti-reflective coatings at all and I highly recommend staying well clear of these. It's likely that no further discussion is required, in which case we recommend starting a new thread.

I'm hoping that the waterproofing of these Carson binocs holds up to various hiking and backpacking conditions. Carson provides a limited lifetime warranty for this binocular, which means that it is warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship and Carson will either repair or replace any part or assembly of parts found to be defective. Extras like an included binocular harness and the fantastic wrap around BinoArmor carry case add extra value to this already excellent pair of optics. The Carson Optical VP-042 10x42mm Compact Binocular has been designed to be the perfect binocular for any outdoor activity. Unlike the current trend of open-hinged design binoculars, Carson have used a fairly traditional solid single bridge design on these roof prism binoculars.

The body on these Carson 10x42 3D binoculars are O-ring sealed to make them fully waterproof which obviously protects them from moisture, but also prevents dust and other tiny particles from getting inside them, which can lead to your view being spoilt. As well as quick, this process is also pretty much silent as there are no zips or Velcro fasteners that often make enough noise to spook easily frightened wildlife. These and high reflective coatings on the prisms can make a really big difference on the brightness of the image produced. But because of the excellent warp around design of the case, these are not really needed and the fact that you only have to remove one item (the case) instead of all the lens covers in the field , it really does save you time and means there is far less to loose.

Carson Optical offers No-Fault warranty on Binoculars, and a One-Year limited warranty on battery operated Binoculars. Highlights include BAK-4 roof prisms, fully multi-coated optics, plenty of eye-relief and a more than decent field of view. Independent right diopter adjustment makes it possible to adjust the focus to allow for strength differences in each eye.

Tripod mountable binoculars provide unbeatable stability and precision when viewing distant objects and scenes.Whilst as you say, you have already read my review of the 10x42 Carson 3D on BBR, I thought I would add a few more personal comments here.
