Our Top Pick ★★★★★

One of the top selling binoculars available with 50mm lens and 10X zoom. High quality, clear view.

Bushnell makes some really great binoculars. These one’s stand out to us for a few reasons in 2017. That’s why we think they are the best cheap binoculars. First of all the pricing is extremely reasonable, being in the mid $30 price range. The focus lever works smooth and easy with just enough tension. And as usual, we want to know what other people are saying about these binoculars, so we did our research. Over on Amazon these binoculars have have a 4.5 star rating with over 1,000 reviews.

So for these reasons, after a lot of research, we chose the Bushnell Falcon as our #1 pick for best binoculars to buy in 2017. You can see all the details here…

42mm lens and 10X zoom. A little higher priced but a little higher quality.

This category is specifically for the best cheap binoculars, but we had a tough time deciding among ourselves what should be considered cheap. Finally we came up randomly with a price of $65 or less. And these come in just under that, so here is our second pick for the cheap binoculars of 2017.

Amazon has over 450 reviews and these guys sit at a very good 4.5 star rating. A huge bonus that you don’t see in the really cheap models is that these are water-proof and fog-proof. A must have feature if you want to take them on long hikes or camping where you will encounter rain.

They also have other models at various prices with more or less zoom ability.

These are the reasons we chose the Celestron Outland binoculars to be on our list. You can see more details here… These our our favorites for the best cheap binoculars to buy in 2017.
