When choosing a pair of binoculars, there will be many things to bear in mind. Not only do you need to ensure that you have the most appropriate equipment for the unique activities you are likely to carry out, whether that is bird-watching or simply viewing wildlife in general, but it is also important to know how and when you are likely to use them.
For example, anyone who is likely to be using such equipment late at night will almost certainly find that choosing night vision options will improve their experience immeasurably. However, it is not just added extras such as night vision that you should take into account and everything from capability to weight should factor into your choice.
Many people do not consider just how important weight will be when choosing binoculars. However, if you are likely to have to carry the equipment around for long periods of time, or comfortably need to hold them to your face for long stretches of time, you are unlikely to want them to be extremely heavy.
There will be other considerations too: how fast do you need them to focus (in other words, will it be for items that are moving very fast or more languid objects or creatures?), how wide do you need the field of view to be and how close or how far away do you need to be top ensure you are able to see?
Whilst many people will assume that price will equate to the very best pair, with so many different needs from one person and one activity to the next, binoculars should always be bought with the individual in mind, and whilst price may equate to quality in many instances, by paying more you may actually find that you are simply getting qualities you don’t need, and that may even get in the way of what you wish to achieve.
Anyone who loves the great outdoors should be pretty easy to buy for, right? Well, whilst it may seem that way, getting them something that they don’t already have can be hard work. After all, those who spend a great deal of time outdoors, will understand just how important it is to be prepared for everything from hiking trips to lengthy time spent camping out.
Whilst you may well be able to do a little bit of digging and find out exactly what they might be lacking or needing, there are plenty of items that even the most experienced outdoorsman might not have considered purchasing but that will almost certainly improve any outdoors experience for them.
Certain items of very technical clothing can be a very good present, but making sure you get something that is a perfect fit will be extremely important and therefore potentially a big task. Instead, consider items that might improve what they can achieve. For example, even those with the very best binoculars for bird watching, or hiking equipment, may not have considered night vision equipment.
Whilst night vision goggles or cameras may well be associated with spies and intrigue, in reality they can be the perfect tool for those who love the outdoors. Not only are they a great way to be able to optimise binoculars when wishing to view wildlife in its natural habitat, but they can also help people to get around more safely, to be quieter and in turn not wake others when they need to get around at night and even potentially just be safer from potential threats, should they find themselves in the middle of nowhere in the dark.
So when it comes to gifts for the outdoors type, think outside the box and consider which items might really improve what they can achieve.
There’s more to night vision than meets the eye. It offers far more usable benefits that you might think with it being much more than a way to hunt, spy or survey, because if you’re interested in wildlife observation it can bring the twilight hours to life in a way you never thought possible.
There’s nothing better than being able to observe the great outdoors, and your garden could easily be a hub of wildlife activity. If that’s the case then chances are it’ll be just as active at night, if not more so—it’s in the hours of darkness that the truly interesting animals come out to play, and you could well find that your garden is home to far more than a few birds and a frog or two. Basic binoculars will hold you back from all that and if you keep any lights on you’ll frighten any visitors away, so the only thing to do is invest in night vision.
But, don’t think you’ll have to invest in outrageously expensive or overly large pieces of equipment, because thanks to rapid technological advancements in the area you might be surprised at the options open to you. Monoculars, goggles, scopes and even binoculars are all available with this specialist feature, and you won’t have to spend a fortune to get products of the necessary quality. You could easily be missing out on a wealth of wildlife observation opportunities by not having this piece of technology in your life, and if you want to see the types of products on offer just get in touch and we’ll gladly fill you in.
Are you a nature lover who would love to spot some endangered species? Perhaps you dream of seeing a Great Bittern in flight, or maybe you want to spot a Harbour Porpoise while visiting the ocean?
If you want to spot endangered animals and enjoy seeing them in nature, you will need to learn as much about them as you can. Where do they live and what do they eat? Do they come out during the day, or are they only nocturnal?
Once you know enough about the species that you want to see, you can then begin to plan an excursion. You will need to think about acquiring the appropriate gear, such as hiking boots or waterproofs. And if you will be in the mountains, you may need thermals, and if you will be on the water you may need lifejackets.
You will also want certain equipment such as binoculars. These are vital in your search for endangered species as you may never come close enough to one of these animals to actually enjoy it if you don’t use binoculars.
Depending on when the animal you want to see comes out, you may also need night vision binoculars. These are great for watching animals that come out at dawn or twilight as you may need to be in place while it is still dark.

Technology is developing all the time and this has had a huge impact on the world of vision. These days, it’s possible for ordinary consumers to purchase great value telescopes and other such products to enable them to pursue their hobbies.
Among the most impressive offerings available for individuals to buy are night vision devices. These come in a range of different styles, but they all have one thing in common: they allow people to see in conditions that would normally be too dark for human eyes to work.
One common use of these items is wildlife observation. Many animals behave completely differently at night time, so using specially designed pieces of equipment to see them can open up an whole new world.
Meanwhile, for those intent on something more active, it is possible to use night vision gun sights and monoculars to get stuck into some hunting in the darkness.
If you think you could benefit from such devices, you have come to the right place. Here at Sherwoods we stock an extensive and varied range of night vision items, meaning we should have the perfect ones for you, regardless of your objectives.
And, if you know someone else who would love to receive such offerings, or telescopes and so on, you may want to purchase the products as a festive gift.
To see whether any of our devices take your fancy, just have a look around the rest of our website. You might be surprised by the level of choice you face.
Are you looking for some fun Christmas gifts? Perhaps you want something a little more unusual? Why not give someone on your list a telescope, a pair of binoculars, or a camera?
The great thing about giving practical yet fun gifts like these is that you not only give someone an unusual and exciting gift, but it’s something that they can enjoy all year round. It also encourages people to get outside and enjoy nature. This is ideal for children who spend too much time indoors, or elderly people who want to get more exercise.
For binoculars, we have a great selection of bird watching ones, and marine ones. Buying someone a pair of binoculars is a great way to encourage a new hobby. You could also include some bird guides or other nature books, or a nature calendar in your gift.
A telescope makes a great gift for anyone who loves nature, or even for a student who is studying science. Check out our Telescopes Basics guide to choose the right scope for the person on your gift list.
Night vision optics are another great gift for nature lovers. A lot of wildlife is only active at night time, so giving hikers and nature enthusiasts a pair of night vision optics is an ideal way to encourage them in their interests, and to give them a gift they will truly enjoy.
We also carry a range of cameras, gifts and gadgets, board games, portable radios, and many other items that would make great Christmas gifts.
