A nature enthusiast's desire to provide others with quality optics at a reasonable price resulted in the long-popular Eagle Optics Ranger binocular.

That means optimal light transmission and excellent color fidelity. Ranger owners especially favor the superior edge-to-edge sharpness, light weight, durable body, close focus, and affordable price.

As a beginning birder, these binoculars were recommended by friends who are expert birders. I found the focusing knob to be easily accessible and needed for rapidly changing distances. The light-gathering ability of the binoculars was also spectacular. The sharpness of the image is equal to much higher priced optics. I have already enjoyed many hours of observing both birds and butterflies.
Aileen from California
My son is an environmental biologist and bought a pair of your binoculars for his field work. We had a chance to use them on a trip to Ano Nuevo, California to view the elephant seals. They were great. As we are National Park travelers and live on the California coast, a good pair of binoculars with exceptional depth perception and easy focus makes road trips and every day life much clearer. A great product at a fair price.
Mary from London,Ontario
A couple of weeks ago I was out'n'about hiking in the snow and wanted to get a closer look at something and down I went in a snow bank, my binoculars got covered in snow and I was quite worried that I ruined them, but I got all the snow out off the eye caps and so forth couldn't see for a bit until they dried out but within 15 minutes or so I could see perfectly, I was very surprised how well they did with all the snow on them, very impressed, love my binoculars and glad they are okay since I am doing the GBBC this weekend and would not be able to do so without them.Thanks
See the birdie!
charles from California
These are excellent binoculars. Very good clarity and lightweight.
Leslie from Republic of Panama
I borrowed a pair from a friend and was so impressed, bought a pair as a backup. The light weight is impressive for clear, bright and high contrast image. My only con is the depth-of-focus is shallow and focus wheel takes a few extra movements to adjust focus as compared to my B&L Elites.
Shipment was fast and the fellows on the phone are intelligent!
Did buy a second pair, but with the ED glass. See review under that model.
Great for field work
Angelica from Fontana, CA
These do an excellent job in helping me identify birds and other animals in the field.
Linda from Maine
These great bins are light, bright and sharp, easily equal to the Leica 10x42's I've given up because of their heavy weight. Fast shipping as well as an ironclad guarantee are good selling points. This is an excellent, durable product that also features very good close-in focus. Love the price point, too.
Great for the hike
Don from Davis
I loved these binocs, they are light weight and the harness makes for an easy hike. They work very well in low light situations and add a whole new dimension to my fledgling career as an amateur birder. However, the best surprise comes when I turn the focus on wild flowers. Every flower in focus becomes a wonderful piece of artwork with a impressionistic background of colors.
Birding with the Big Eye
Robert from Austin, Texas
The Eagle Optics binocular is great for distant resolution and bringing even the smallest bird so close you can almost count the feathers on the tail. these EOB were highly recommended by my birding bud. I tried his and immediately wanted a pair!
A bit closer!
Betty from Boerne, TX
Binocular is a reasonable weight for field use, and is good at light gathering even in poor light. Brings those distant birds into closer focus for better ID. Only limitation is the short depth of field, which makes tracking fast moving birds challenging.
Cliff from Southeastern PA
I've had a Ranger 10x42 for just about a year now, and I've been very pleased with it. The field of view is very wide and very bright, especially given that it's a 10 power bino. The eye relief is very deep, which allows me a full field of view even though I wear eyeglasses.
The neck strap is very comfortable, and the eyepiece covers are just about impossible to lose.
These are 42mm binos, so they aren't light-weight. But that's the price one pays for their terrific light-gathering power.
My only complaint is that my objective covers have a little rubber strap that became brittle and broke about 6 months after I started using the binoculars. But that's just a quibble given how terrific these binos are otherwise.
I highly recommend these binoculars for birding (especially in twilight conditions) and astronomy.
Gail from california
My husband just started birdwatching. After reading the reviews I bought these. He is trilled with how easy it is to follow the hawks in our area. Very happy with the purchase.
Al from Illinois
Purchased a pair of ranger 10x42 about 9 years ago. I spend all year outdoors between archery competition and hunting. over the years I've tried binos costing hundreds more but after trying my eagles i'm convinced there is not a better bino buy on the market! I'm hard on equipment and my eagles have held up to everything i've thrown at them. Toss in the great factory warranty[that i've never had to use] and you've got a winner!
Jay B. from California
I have seen a six year old pair, used in the field, still clearer and brighter than similarly priced binoculars. The new pair, with the dielectric coatings are even brighter. The durability of the Ranger 10x42, the clarity and brilliance of the optics has won my choice in binoculars. Life time quality.
Mary from Chicago
My husband was very happy with his new binocs - thanks!
Mike from Washington DC
They are exactly what I was looking for. Great for birdwatching.
Dollar for dollar the best binoculars in the world
Richard from OHIO
I have been a birder since I was 13 years old and have had the same pair of 7x35 the entire time. I have never been happy with them and have always strained to see anything. This spring I decided that it was time to upgrade to a quality pair of binoculars. After reading the reviews of this website, I ordered a pair of ranger 10x42. I was a little worried about spending $300 bucks on something I had never actually held in my hands. But when they arrived a few days later, I was more than happy with my investment. These binoculars have added an edge to my birding game that was missing for the last 10 years.
The Right Choice
J. B. from Sierra Vista, AZ
I bought these on the recommendation of my birding instructor. He told me these were as good as his expensive $$$$! binoculars. He was right - these are great. Plus, the Eagle personalized customer service is fabulous. Thanks for the free shipping and warranty!
Richard S. from Grass Valley California
I purchased the Eagle Optics Ranger 10x42 after a life time of cheap inexpensive glasses. The staff at Eagle Optics were very helpful in zeroing me in on the type of binocs that would suit my need. Absolutely on the mark with these glasses. The optics are crisp sharp, bright and focus quickly and accurately with no second guessing. Armor clad rubberized weatherproof sure grip lightweight with a heft of quality. As an eyeglasses wearer I no longer need to remove them to use these binocs. the eye relief is great. You cannot beat the quality of these glasses for the price. Everything about these binoculars exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend them to anyone
A Great Binocular at a Very Reasonable Price
John W. C. from Daytona Beach FL
A few years ago my Swarovski 10 X 42 EL binoculars were stolen. I felt I shouldn't spend the amount of money for replacing them. I saw the Eagle Optics 10 X 42 Ranger and was favorably impressed with the cost, but had wondered what the optical performance would be. They came and I could hardly believe how clear the image was. I compared them with my daughters Swarovski EL 10 X 42 binoculars and truly couldn't tell the difference in the image of either. I have used these Eagle Ranger Binoculars ever since and wouldn't think of replacing them for a more expensive binocular.
Eagle Optics Ranger 10X42 Binocular
D. McMahan from Knox,,TN
I would recommend this binocular because the focus is quick and sharp. Image is good in a wide variety of lighting situations. The bino fits my hands well and is easy for me to use. The field of vision seems good for 10 power optics.
Outstanding Birding Tool
Tom D. from Chambersburg, PA
My first pair of binoculars were given to me by my Dad in 1965. He bought them at Sears, and lasted me about 20 years. The next pair I won in a “subscribe now to a birding magazine” contest. I still use them; they are an Audubon/Bushnell pair, magnification 10 X 42. They have been in Iraq, Cambodia for a year during their first elections in 1993, and Iraq twice and Kosovo...they held up well through all those trips. I decided since I am looking to retire, again, and I wanted a great pair of binoculars, but the luxury brands are out of my price range, so I chose the Eagle Ranger brand. These are outstanding, priced well, great construction and a real easy pair of binoculars to use in the field...these deserves a look if you are in the market for a new binocular, and your budget right now may not allow a "luxury" pair. Check out the Eagle Ranger series! I would buy them again or give them as a gift if I knew someone would appreciate a fine birding tool. I look forward to taking this pair on as many worldwide birding adventures as possible.
Gayla from Horseshoe Bay, Texas
I really like my binoculars. They are easy to use and have a clear sharp image. I like being able to focus on distant objects as well as those that are up close like butterflies. Thanks for being prompt in sending them for Christmas.
Simply the best!
Mellen from Westchester,OH
I have owned many pairs of binoculars the last 50 years or so - all makes, all ranges and sizes - most of which I still own and which reside in vehicles, in day packs, and on window sills - but until dear friends of mine from Louisville,KY introduced me to their pair of Eagle Optics Rangers 10 X 42 I did not know what I was missing! I tried them first at St. George Island and next at Pawley's Island watching all the birds and wildlife - they were the first pair I grabbed if I had a choice - 10 yrs ago I had laser eye surgery to correct my long distance vision - a miracle surgery in my estimation that released me from my dependence on contact lenses and coke bottle glasses! I told my surgeon I wanted "eyes like an eagle" before he started and he did the best he could do - now my eyesight combined with the Eagle Rangers do just that and I could not be more thrilled with the result - Thank you Eagle Optics, my eye dr. and my dear friends
Cheryl from wisconsin
I heard of your product a couple of years ago when my brother bought a pair of your binoculars and we were able to watch an eagle tear a fish apart on the shore from the boat.
I purchased the Ranger SRT 10x 42 as a Christmas gift for my husband who loves to bird watch and is an avid hunter. He has shopped around for binoculars for about a year but was unable to find a pair he really liked. Our son said he went to a sporting goods store to check out their binoculars and was very disappointed in the quality and they were priced much higher than the binoculars we bought. He was amazed on Christmas morning when he opened the box and saw his binoculars. He is extremely surprised with the clarity of the view and the ability the binoculars have in magnifying the closeness. He can' wait to really get out and use them. I am anxious to use them when we go to the lake this next summer to watch the loons. We are extremely happy with our purchase and wish we had done it sooner.
Eagle Ranger SRT 10 X42
Gary from Katy, Texas 77450
We are very pleased with the product. We are new bird watchers and the light let in for viewing is wonderful. 10X42 alows us to see the bright colors of the birds.It makes the back yard more fun. Ths size is perfect. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.
A good step up!
Adele from Massapequa, NY
I had been using an ancient 7 X 35 binocular that was heavy. This bino is all that was advertised: light weight, easy to use, feels good in my hands, love the fact that you can use with or without glasses. A nice surprise was the lense covers that are attached, even when not covering the lenses...I can't loose the covers! I didn't have time to go to a store and compare...I just knew I had to order 10 X 42's for better birding. I call it my "light weight scope"!! And the price was very fair and affordable. Thanks for a really nice product!
Oh! The birds these Rangers will see!
Pat from USA
I'm a world wide birder, travelling with birders using name brand binos. I've looked through them all over the years. The high priced binos may get a slight edge in color reproduction, but not in the clarity or ease of adjustment of the Ranger series. And the Rangers are certainly lighter to carry. My wife has the 8X42 model and is very satisfied with them.
Pat from Surprise, AZ
This is our second pair of Rangers. The first was an 8X42 which continues to perform flawlessly. No problems in the 8 years since purchase. We have used them extensively for birdwatching and nature viewing. I have compared them side by side with Swaroskis and found them to be very nearly just as good in all respects, so for $1500 less these are an amazing buy. Excellent resulution, field of view, color brilliance and accuracy, and all with a lifetime warranty. I highly recommend them.
I'm really happy
Paul from Chicago
These are my first pair of good binoculars (ie: more than $30) and I am really happy with them. They were recommended to me by a birder whose had a pair for more than 10 years, and I'm really happy with them.
