RSPB WPG 8.5x42 Binoculars

The RSPB brand is reaping in the rewards thanks to their release of the RSPB WPG 8.5x42 binoculars (CHECK PRICE!). They certainly aren’t the cheapest set of binoculars on the market but because of the quality viewing practises they provide, customers certainly don’t mind paying for them. The RSPB brand is one of the market leaders when it comes to crystal clear binoculars so you know you are getting into bed with a brand you can trust. The RSPB stands for The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and is a wildlife charity, 90% of their net income goes into conservation, advocacy, and local public education which is even more reason to buy your binoculars with them – because you know they are going to make a difference to the world.

RSPB WPG Review 2016The RSPB WPG 8.5x42 binoculars are perfect for bird watchers because their lenses provide a clear and light view of their surroundings. Even if you are one to get up in the early hours of the morning and explore to find birds to watch, the 42mm lenses can still grab enough light thanks to their size, so you will still be able to see things clear as day. If you are a bird lover you will love these binoculars as it is jam packed with plenty of features to make your viewing experience even more enjoyable.

Born and raised in the south coast of UK, a small town close to Cornwall, I have adventure in my blood. Ever since a young age, I have always been into the great outdoors and particularly love watching the natural wildlife. Birdwatching is what I enjoy the most, and thus my natural interest in binoculars began. I founded and run Best-Binoculars.UK a site where I talk about various aspects of and review binoculars. Hope you enjoy my ramblings :)
