Best Binoculars for Sports Viewing

For many people, watching a sports match on television just isn’t enough. They want to see the action live. Whether you’re about to see an Olympics swimming race, a baseball game or a tennis match, you’ll want to have a good pair of binoculars at your side. Quite often, there are large screens at sports venues which show close up views of the action, but they might now always show what you specifically want to concentrate on. A good quality pair of binoculars will make your experience a lot better as you won’t miss anything you consider important. This article will present a few of the best binoculars for sports viewing you should choose from to take to the next event you want to watch.


First up, we have the 3D Series High Definition Waterproof Binoculars by Carson. These binoculars are slightly expensive, but worth their value. The lenses are 10x42mm, which means you’ll be able to see a lot of detail at long distances. You’ll even be able to see the players’ facial expressions if you wish. This pair of binoculars comes with ED Glass, which is quite good in terms of quality and makes for a clear and sharp image. It also ensures a bright image, which can be great for viewing sports event taking place in the evening. They are also fog proof and waterproof, meaning that you won’t be disturbed by harsh weather conditions (although it is highly unlikely that an event will take place in foggy conditions). They have a good rubber coating, which allows better grasp of the binoculars, and protection for the occasional accidental bump. Quality-wise this item won’t let you down, and makes up for its high price with great performance – it’s one the best binoculars around.

Next on the list are the 62598 9×42 DCF BR Binoculars by Pentax. It isn’t too different when it comes to the pricing, being somewhat less expensive. The quality is pretty much just as good with this pair. What’s different is the size of the lenses, which is 9×42, as suggested by the product title. This means that you can shift your view all over the stadium without getting dizzy or losing focus as the magnification is comparatively less. This feature makes it much better for watching sports where there is a lot of movement, like baseball or basketball.  It is lightweight, weatherproof and waterproof, making it great for just about any sporting event. They also have a full rubber coating, making them easier to hold, and reducing the damage of falling by a great deal. The polycarbonate it is made of is fiber reinforced, making it highly durable. The phase coated roof prisms make sure the image perceived is always high in resolution and gives contrast which is good for low light stadiums.

These two items will make a great purchase for you, and can potentially last for years. Any one of them will serve you purposes, but as mentioned, if you feel like you’re going to be shifting your view a lot while looking through the binoculars, you should go for the DFC BR by Pentax.
