The Bone Collector edition of the Bushnell Trophy Xtreme binoculars doesn’t have a lot of features, but they won’t cost you a lot of dollars either.
In fact, the only thing Xtreme about them is the lack of features, and the only thing Trophy about them is the deer antlers in the Bone Collector decal.
If you’re in a rush and just want to check the pricing and availability of the Bone Collector 10×42 binos at Amazon, you can click (or tap) the link just below.
If you’re looking for a specific color or design (like camo) for these binoculars, be sure to check with the seller beforehand. I’ve seen several designs all claiming to be essentially the same thing.
There’s not a lot to say about these binoculars other than they’re sturdy and so should last a long time. The glass is fully multi-coated, but not much else has been done to it.
Here’s a list of features you will not find in the Bushnell Bone Collector binoculars.
Features NOT Included
- ED Glass
- Phase Correction Coating
- Dielectric Prism Coating
- Ultrawide Band Coating
- Locking Diopter
- Image Stabilization
Again, just to be clear (no pun intended), the list above is what you don’t get in these binos. Obviously, Bushnell was trying to cut back on costs. I think they succeeded in that.
Features that are fairly standard these days in mid- to high-range binoculars are included. Items such as fogproofing via nitrogen purging, waterproofing, BaK-4 lead-free glass, twist eyecups, and tripod adaptability are all there.
If you get the standard bundle (such as the one available currently at Amazon), you will also get a “deluxe” harness which is handy if you plan to carry them around all day, since they weigh just over 25 ounces.
The field of view (FOV) for the Bone Collector 10x42s is 330 feet at 1000 yards. That’s decent but probably not above average.
Eye relief is a fair-to-middling 15.2 millimeters. I couldn’t find a close focus measurement. The Bushnell site says “43471”, which makes no sense in any measuring system I know of.
These binoculars, especially the camo version, are intended for hunters. Obviously, others of you will find them useful too. As I hinted at above, their main selling point is going to be price, not features. You won’t lose an arm or a leg when you make your purchase.
If these aren’t what you really want, maybe one of one these other Bushnell binocular will suit you better.
