Brunton Lite Tech Monocular

Add Protect+ Powered by Extend™

Use responsibly, Tom.

When binoculars are too bulky and expensive, try the waterproof Brunton Life Tech Monocular. Whether you track falcons in the gorge or in the Georgia Dome, the 8X magnification will let you see the faraway world closer up. The Lite Tech is filled with nitrogen so it won’t fog and is waterproof in case it falls in your eight-dollar light beer. To make sure that doesn’t happen, it comes with a lanyard and case.

Great price alright view

Received product and tried it fresh out the box in the confines of my home. I was sorely disappointed when I couldn’t spy on my wife from the living room when she was in the kitchen. It took me some time to adjust and set my eyeball straight to get an actual view from the 20yds I was set up from my seat. Then I took it outside and then realized that indoor wife watching was not the way to go. I realized the close up of wildlife and random people, was a lot closer than I imagined. I would advise that when purchasing this product, to go outside and view before passing judgement. The size is small and lightweight, sturdy and can fit in most pockets without being to overbearing. After using it at a baseball game, I realized it was well worth it to invest into this small pocket sized monocle.

Nifty little piece for spying on nature!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

As a Ranger for They Dyrt, occasionally, from time to time, I have the amazing opportunity to test incredible products in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. On this trip, I tested Brunton's Lite Tech Monocular, and thought it had some great applications! First, this handy little piece of monocular loveliness fits in the palm of your hand, weighs very little and allows you the chance to see nature a bit more up-close-and-personal. It's not going to replace binoculars, but it'll let you see the bird in the top of the tree a little closer, you can look at the porcupine waddling down the path without risking a quill poke, and you can watch that bear eat your granola bars, and know exactly which flavor he likes best! Now, it takes a little practice to get used to using it. Get it too far from your eye and all you see is a little glass lens. Press it too close and everything goes black. And no, you aren't losing your eyesight, you are just doing it wrong. It's a gentle act to put it to your eye just right, but once you do, it works well. The lens sort of twists and swivels to pull things into focus. And if you have trouble looking with one eye, just close the other one while spying through it. Just don't fall off that cliff. Seriously, it's a great little gadget to get you a little closer to nature, whether you are an animal lover, weather watcher or simply love to take a look around, at $35, it's kinda fun to feel like nature isn't far out of your reach. Great for a kid learning to use a spyglass an adult who wants to bird watch or someone that just wants another little gadget that they can get closer to nature with.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Tryed to use it for first time and couldn't get it to focus. Realized the outer lens was flopping around in its mount. No possible way its waterproof.

If you're looking for something compact...this isn't it. It's quite large.

Actual measurements would be a great help. Do you have one you can measure and post please?

>Rating: lists this product with 'Objective diameter: 40mm'. You list it with 'Objective Lens: 22mm' Which one is right?

I'm interested in the same thing. But there is also one more discrepancy. Brunton site states 7x magnification, while here is stated 8x. I wonder if Brunton has modified this product or this is just an error on their site? I also noticed that their Echo Pocket Scope was 7x18, but now is 7x22. What's up with that? Are products changed or are these errors in descriptions?
