December 15, 2015

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – Online retailer OpticsPlanet has awarded Bushnell®, one of the most recognizable and trusted names in precision hunting, tactical and recreational optics and accessories, Best Birding Binocular and Best Airgun Riflescope in its 2015 Brilliance Awards. Decided by popular vote, the Brilliance Awards annually recognize the best of the best in performance optics.

After reviewing over 250,000 products and 1,400 brands, OpticsPlanet named the finalists vying for the right to bear the coveted Brilliance Award seal. Consumers then cast their votes, recognizing Bushnell Elite® model binoculars and Trophy® XLT in the Birding Binocular and Airgun Riflescope categories, respectively.

“To be recognized as a Brilliance Award winner by OpticsPlanet and its consumers for a fifth consecutive year is ultimately rewarding for our team at Bushnell,” said Lea Ramthun, Bushnell optics brand manager. “We are committed to producing the highest quality, best-value optics for shooters, golfers and wildlife enthusiasts, and this recognition by the end users tells us we’re delivering the best-in-class product they demand.”

Bushnell’s Elite binoculars are made from scratch resistant, fully multi-coated ED Prime Glass. These rugged and lightweight optics are waterproof, fog-proof and dust-proof, all packaged in a rubber-armored magnesium chassis. They feature Bushnell’s exclusive, patented Rainguard HD® lens coating that reduces large drops of water to near-microscopic specks, dramatically increasing light transmission and resulting in a remarkably clear image in wet weather.

The Trophy XLT riflescope is waterproof, fog-proof and dust-proof. Filled with nitrogen, this fully multi-coated optic boasts 91-percent light transmission with ¼ MOA windage and elevation adjustments.

Bushnell, a Vista Outdoor, Inc. brand, is one of the most recognizable and trusted names in precision hunting, tactical and recreational optics and accessories. For more information, visit www.bushnell.com
