Whether you are a hiker, bird watcher, hunter, or armchair explorer, a high-quality set of binoculars is essential to the success of your pursuit. Binoculars are one of the most important pieces of gear I use when hunting big game. A good set of binoculars allows you to scan for animals that are hundreds of yards away and that are difficult to see with your naked eye alone. This makes them an indispensable tool in the field.
The world of binoculars is huge, and it can be a little daunting when trying to explore and learn about different brands and their features. I am by no means an expert, but I am an experienced outdoorsman and rely on my binoculars on every trip I take. The point of binoculars is to cover ground with your eyes, not your legs.
Outstanding Low Light Performance
The low light performance sold me on these Maven B2-Series 11×45 binoculars. As a hunter and outdoorsman, much of my time is spent searching for game in the early hours of dawn or the waning glow of a sunset. I was impressed with their clarity. The performance of these binoculars in those conditions was outstanding.Shop Now
Maven Outdoor Equipment Company sells high-quality optics directly to consumers instead of through retail in order to offer lower prices and better customer support.30-Day Demo Trial
Maven Outdoor Equipment Company is a relatively new optics company based in Lander, Wyoming. In 2014, they began releasing products with a ‘straight to consumer’ business model. This gives buyers a great benefit of skipping retail store markups and dealing directly with the company for sales and personalized customer service. A unique aspect of the Maven system is the ability for the customer to demo a selection of optics for up to 30 days.
I found this extremely helpful in my review because it’s really difficult to make a fair evaluation at the optics counter of a dimly lit retail store. The ability to take them into the field and use them in various terrains and lighting conditions was extremely helpful in gaining a full appreciation of their construction and quality. Another bonus is once you have demoed the optics you can choose to keep them, or you can go to the Maven website and at a small additional cost, custom-build your binoculars with a variety of magnifications, frame sizes, body armor, labeling, and colors.
For this review, the company allowed me to demo the Maven B-2 series 11×45 binocular.
