With A High Level Of Magnification

The higher the magnification, the more the light has to travel and be redirected, resulting in a smaller and smaller sight picture each and every time. Eye relief is typically highest in 1x optics such as an EOTech holographic sight, where you can use it with both eyes open several inches away and still maintain perfect sight picture.

As you move up in magnification, eye relief usually gets significantly less, all the way up until your eye is essentially touching the edge of the scope. Scopes in this guide will all have high levels of magnification which will likely result in very low amounts of eye relief.

Of course, the size of the lenses and the overall construction play a role in this but as a general rule of thumb, the more magnification, the less eye relief the scope will offer. Pairing scopes that come equipped with low levels of eye relief with a high-powered rifle means your jelly bags will sit very close to the scope.

If you’re a newbie, heed my warning! The scope can and will sock you right in the face, so be careful! Optical LensesThe ultimate test of a scope’s quality is typically administered by the quality of its glass. Glass is the most important aspect of price (besides brand, sometimes) and will ultimately determine how well the scope performs and creates a sight picture.

Just because a scope says it has (insert level of magnification) doesn’t mean that it will perform at that magnification well. Another thing to consider in the world of glass is the coatings that come on top of it. There are many different kinds of coatings with some brands even having proprietary coatings.

Coatings usually serve multiple purposes. Firstly, coating the lens can protect it from damage and even help to shed off water and fog. Secondly, coating the lenses can reduce glare for both the sight picture and glare coming off the front of the scope. If you aren’t using this scope in combat, glare emanating from your lens probably won’t matter.

You can’t communicate with anything else but if you just need to chat with friends or family it might be a simple way to go. READ MOREFor more of our top hiking & backpacking gear recommendations, check out these popular articles:ElectronicsAbout The AuthorHiker. Trail runner. Mountain biker.

They’ve been around since the 1890s and are still just as classy and functional as ever. Patagonia Altvia Trail Pants ($119)Materials: 86% polyester, 14% spandex Weight: 11. 1 oz. Belt included: No What we like: Very stretchy build with zippered storage. What we don’t: Shorter inseam can impact fit.

A recent addition to Patagonia’s hiking pant line, the Altvia Trail combines a stretchy build with a very functional storage layout. Starting with the stretch, this slim-fitting pant includes a healthy dose of spandex (14%) for excellent mobility and all-around comfort. They’ve even incorporated elastic into the waistband to give it a jogger-like fit and feel.

That said, the Altvia is still sufficiently trail-ready with a DWR coating for shedding light moisture, good breathability from the stretch-woven fabric, and zippered closures on all five pockets. And with zippers at the bottom of the cuffs, the lower legs of the pant can be tuned to fit over anything from low-profile trail runners to bulky hiking boots.

What’s not to like with the Altvia Trail Pant? For one, the sheer number of zippers in the design has us concerned about its long-term durability (and we’ve unfortunately had a number of Patagonia zippers fail on us recently). Further, the 31-inch inseam is a polarizing choice: most pants either offer a standard 32-inch inseam or a 30-inch option, so this in-between length may not work for some folks.

But if the sizing is good for you and you like the security of zippered storage, the stretchy and comfortable Altvia has plenty of appeal. See the Men’s Patagonia Altvia Trail13. Montane Terra Pack ($100)Materials: Nylon w/stretch Weight: 8. 4 oz. Belt included: Yes What we like: Very light and packable.

What we don’t: Button fastener fell off early in our test. Trimming weight from their popular Terra pant, Montane’s Terra Pack has a streamlined and feathery ultralight build. The impressively low 8. 4-ounce weight is largely due to the proprietary Vector Lite fabric, which we found breathes well and offers excellent stretch for scrambling and crouching to take photos (a plus while backpacking Peru’s Huayhuash Circuit).

The pant also has one of the more customizable fit systems with an elasticized waistband, both a button and snap closure, and a removable belt. It removes 99. 9% of the bacteria and protozoa that are found in various water sources. It also gets rid of any microplastics as well.
