Plenty of shooting-related endeavors can benefit from, or in some cases require, the use of long-distance glass. Sometimes spotting scopes fit the bill, but other times what you really need is a binocular. As we draw closer to the hunting season, binoculars are certainly something to consider for your fall deer-chasing loadout. And while most of us would like to have a higher-end set, that’s not always in a hunter’s budget – or it may be that an inexpensive bino is simply more appropriate for your hunting/shooting situation. In this case, Bushnell has you covered. In an August 7th press release, they have announced that the new Powerview 2 series of binoculars is shipping now. The release reads as follows.
Bushnell Now Shipping Powerview 2 Binoculars
Bushnell®, an industry leader in performance optics, announced that it has started shipping the Powerview™ 2, an evolution of their popular Powerview line of binoculars that have offered industry-leading value for over a decade.
A versatile, general-use binocular, Powerview 2 models feature an aircraft grade, aluminum alloy chassis built for durability without adding unnecessary weight and bulk.

Multi-coated optics provide a clear, vibrant image, even in low light. The focus wheel is designed for ultra-smooth performance, allowing the user to quickly focus on the subject and get exceptional definition. All Powerview 2 binoculars have an adjustable diopter, and come with soft-touch rubber armor that’s textured along the sides and on the bridge for easy handling and a confident grip.
