Engage EDX 12×50 Binoculars is one of the most premium models on this list, just behind the Legend probably. There is great low-light quality with only a little chromatic aberration and an impressive field of view. Great for hiking and even night-sky viewing, thanks to good exit pupil size. These are a little pricier but that reflects their more premium lens and housing construction.

The Engage has Bushnell’s exclusive EXO Barrier protective lens coating. This superior coating, which bonds molecularly to the glass, effectively repels debris, fog, oil, and water. Also, it has scratch resistance capabilities. It is one of the best and most innovative protective lens coating technologies in the industry today. What makes this pair of Bushnell binoculars more rugged is its waterproof magnesium chassis.

Ideal for long-range shooters, the Engage EDX 12×50 Binoculars have a 12x magnification that makes it easier to focus on distant targets. The ED prime glass provides compelling contrast and resolution, delivering precise images even in low-light conditions. It is even made better by the PC-3 phase coating, Ultrawideband coating, and dielectric prism coating that provides vivid color reproduction and up to 92% light transmission. With all these protective coatings, there is nearly no loss of light with the 50mm lens.
