Welcome to The Gear List, a semi-regular series where we spotlight the best discounts and deals on tactical gear, outdoor equipment, and everything in between.

A good set of binoculars belongs in everyone’s pack. Long-range vision is key to situational awareness, whether you’re overseas, in the field, or glassing the back 40 for the buck of the year. Most binoculars top out at eight- or 10-power magnification. That’s adequate most of the time, but you’ll occasionally need to get a clear view beyond that effective range. What you need for that is this set of 16-power binoculars.

Nikon’s Aculon line is aimed at providing exceptional value for your money so it’s no surprise that the products are a big hit with our readers and staff. The combination of bang for the buck, lightness, and quality that punches above its price tag make Aculons a hot-ticket item. When they’re on sale for 20 percent off, the decision is easy.

These prices were valid at press time, but prices can change and deals do expire.
