Highlander brand which is the registered trade mark and exists for about two decades. They develop and refine the wide range of products that does include the sport optics segment. Highlander is based in Livingston and West Lothian, has a customer base all through UK, Ireland and Europe. The following is the review of Highlander Northumberland 10×25 Monocular.
This model gives you a promising compactness both in terms of size and weight. It is sleek and attractive that has a non-slip design. Making it suitable to carry along during all ventures which include mountaineering and trekking. It takes the design with the rubber armouring that just does not protect the inside components but also gives a sure grip at all times.
Lens and Aperture:
Embedded in Highlander Northumberland 10×25 Compact Monocular is a high quality lens that has a yellow tint. The lens is also fully coated that transforms the image clearer and sharper. This monocular with the aperture of 25mm is perfect for the models with this magnification. Basically if the size of the lens is large then the light gathering effect is also large to make the image brighter.
Compared to the lower magnification of 8x this model has the ability to zoom the objects 10 times bigger than the actual size. For the general outdoor activities and the travel purpose this level of magnification is good for certain details.
When stated to be compact this model takes the dimension of 3.2 x 3.2 x 11 cm and of course rightly called as the light weight device with the 80 grams weight. This is just the weight of a couple of pens or an extra wallet in the pocket. Rather they can also be carried with the neck strap or attached to the belt. The rubber armouring keeps it protected against the rain and water. It is also known for the shock poof and slip proof model. The black colour is one in common for such devices. The eyepiece is made of rubber that is soft on eyes and reduces the stress of longer viewing.
Sturdy, rugged and quality image can be experienced with Highlander Northumberland 10×25 Rubber Armouring Monocular and great to take the pride of magnification all times and at all places.
