In an age where technology is advancing rapidly, manufacturers are constantly churning out new products. It can be difficult to keep up with what is new to market.
I mean think about it; was there ever a time when you wanted to buy a product, but there were so many choices that you had no idea where to start? Or maybe you went off a recommendation from a friend to buy this or don’t buy that. Then when you began researching, you get mixed reviews.
I have been in the Optics business for some time now, and within the last couple of years this couldn’t be more true. If I want to keep up with the times and be on top of my game I have to do a lot of research. To do this, I turned to other Optics sites for information beyond just my personal observations. I have compiled a list of the top sites to visit to get the best reviews on Binoculars!

The Binocular Site
The Binocular site is one of the top sites that I research because they are not manufacturers or vendors for binoculars. That way you know 100% that the reviews are unbiased. Also their reviews are not based on any particular hobby this way you know you are getting a full spec review. Another great thing they offer is a comprehensive overview on the world of binoculars, with pages covering everything from beginner to obscure models and uses.
Allbinos.com does a fantastic job of making their site very straight forward but without sparing any of the important details. The site is divided by the title of the Binocular you are looking for. That way you can just click into what you want instead of searching around. Honestly it cannot get more simple than that. Now here is where the complexity comes in, once you get into the review there is tons of information to read through. Although if you want detailed information then it will be worth the time.
If you are someone who is really into your hobby but does not exactly know all of the gargin when it comes to the specs. This site is my #1 choice for you. OpticsReviewer will purchase the binoculars and write reviews based on what they experienced. Another fantastic feature they have is a great article called top 7 easy tips to picking the best binoculars for you. This is so important because not every time do you know exactly what kind you should be looking for.
One of the main reason that I really like this site for a great review on Binoculars is the fact of how simple it is. To their point they state that all Binoculars are simply designed to magnify distant objects while remaining as light and portable as possible. And that is how they keep their reviews simple but to the point. The way the divide up the reviews is based on editors choice, great buy, size mid and full size. Also the further down you scroll they give you a comparison table so you can see the specs of each laid out.
This site is very different from the rest. Unlike the other sites customer search is not a binocular site, a hunting site, or even an optics site. It is a site that consumers can use as a resource to research products and brands to find the best option for them. They base their binocular reviews completely on the optics and how it performs. They lay out their top reviews, but also provide detailed information below as well as a compare products feature.
EZvid is known for being a site that specializes in making top 10 list of all kinds of products. They spend countless amounts of hours researching, videography, and editing to write their reviews. So when they are writing a review you how they have countless hours or research to back it up. They leave the reviews pretty simple but you can always read into the particular brand you are looking for most. Some of the binoculars also have links to where you can purchase the product.
Smart review is like a site I had mentioned before where it writes reviews with all kinds of products. The one difference with this one here is that they provide more categories that you can read reviews on. As some of you may know Binoculars have all kinds of different specs depending on what you are using them for. If you are the kind of person who knows and exact specification that you are looking for you can find that here. They separate out the review articles for each specialty. That way all the products you are reading about have what you are looking for.
If you are looking for a site that knows how complex it can be to choose a product when there are so many kinds to look at. Toppers world is just for you, they know the importance of Binoculars for any camper or adventurer. And that is why they make sure that their reviews reflect the important features that any consumer would be looking for. It is not overloaded with too much information just what you need to know. This will make your next binocular purchase easy!
The Binoculars Guy
If you couldn’t already tell by the name this guy knows his stuff. One of the things that is really great about his site is that he breaks up the reviews into different categories. As we all know there are different specs that you are looking for in a binocular depending on our hobby. His reviews also keep it simple and list the needed information for what your needs are. And if the technical terms are too much for you he even provides you a table of contents (now that is a first). For each category there are only 3 binoculars to review, and tells you why those 3 are the best!
Hunting Binoculars Guide
The hunting binoculars guide is exactly like it sounds a site that just reviews binoculars that every hunter would want. So if hunting is what you need binoculars for, do not look any further. The way they laid out the site is really neat. They only showcase 10 different options so that you have a good variety but not to much that it gets overwhelming. One thing that I found really great is they have a small description about the binocular they listed, which just provides the information that you need to know. If you want more information through they do provide a Read our Review button so that you can find out how it really pans out. On top of that if you think that you have found the right one, they provide a link right on the review that will take you right to where you can purchase!
Artifact Outfitters is a great go to site for anything hunting that you want to know. Weather it is hunting information or reviews on a lot of products. One thing I truly like about the site is the reviews. Something really great that they do is they break up their reviews into price ranges. The last thing you would want to do is read a review love the product to then find out it is way out of your price range. They start around the $200 range and go as high as $2500. And in each range they give anywhere from 2-4 products that you can look at, and even buy if you want to.
Hunting For Binoculars
Unlike any of the other sites this site actually has a video that talks and goes through the specs of the specific binoculars they have reviews for on the site. On top of that they provide a list of all the binoculars that are best for birding (which can also be good for hunting). And if you want to get more information they have sections where you can find out more information on specific specs and all the binoculars that are best for that specific one. They give you so much information that after you are done reading through, you should know exactly what binocular you want!
Saving the best for last (although we’re admittedly biased). Here on Optics Den, we’ve written reviews for hundreds of sporting optics, as well as put together buying guides and other great content related to sporting optics. The article linked to above is a guide to buying binoculars, and it will serve you well if you are looking to buy a pair for hunting, birding, or any other activity.
