Optics Spotlight – Maven B1.2 Review [10×42]

Last updated on December 21st, 2023

On a hunting trip last year in New Zealand a mate brought along a set of Maven Optics, these optics are impressive so check out this short Maven B1.2 review of their 10×42 binoculars to find out why their worth a look. For those who haven’t looked through a pair yet, Maven Optics use high contrast Japanese glass in their optics range, which immediately impressed with. Maven are based in Wyoming are truly underrated in the optics world.

Of late they are becoming more popular amongst the sporting and hunting community, especially here in Australia. Maven operate as a direct to customer company, where they ship directly from their website. The pro is that it keeps the cost down not having a retail markup, the negative is that it limits their exposure to the general user.

The Maven B1.2 binoculars can be ordered in different colour schemes to suit the users preference. Maven Optics do come with a lifetime warranty which does add some comfort when purchasing. I now run a Maven RS.3 5-30x50mm on my hunting rifle and could see a set of the Maven B1.2 binoculars coming with me also.
