A really good deal right now is the Bushnell 8x42 Legend M-Series Binocular. Look around online and you should find them for $200-$300. A lot of binocular for the money. Based on online reviews (and a great deal through my work) I took a chance on them and could not be happier. Puts my old binocs to shame with good low light clarity and an exceptionally wide field of view. And the Rainguard is a nice plus. They also make a 10x42.

But truthfully, there are a lot of great optics in the $300-500 range. Seems to be the sweet spot for quality versus cost.

When I'm deer/coyote hunting, I have a 7x range finder and use a 15-45x spotting scope for anything I can't see with the RF. With the LRF, I wouldn't ever use a set of compact binos, and I do my range glassing with spotting scopes. In the middle, I just don't have much use for "standard" binos. Your husband might be the same...

If looking for a "standard" bino... Bushnell Legend M series 10x42 will deliver anything the Vortex Viper 10x42 can, but at about 1/2-2/3 the price. Lots of guys love to bash Bushnell because they can be a little clunky on design and execution, but the brightness and clarity are fantastic (glass quality and coatings).

There's nothing "wrong" with the Leupold, Nikon, or Vortex in that price range, but for the money, you get more product value out of the Bushnells.
Bushnell isn't a bad bino
