Optical Hardware | Visionary StormQuest 8.5x50

The Visionary StormQuest range of binoculars from Optical Hardware, are tough, rugged and reliable. Their fully waterproof rubber armoured body feels sturdy and solid to hold. To me, they feel like a proper pair of binoculars.

I like the traditional shape, weight and feel to these binoculars, they look and feel the part and also deliver super bright, crisp images with their large high definition 50mm objective lenses.

They are available in sizes 7x50, 8.5x50, 10x50 and 12x50, so there's a size to suit most requirements and preferences.

To conclude, when compared to my other binoculars that I own that are similarly priced around the £120 range, for me, the Optics of the StormQuest win by a mile.

If you're on a budget, but want the quality of high definition optics and solid build quality, in my opinion, you can't got wrong with a pair of StormQuests.
