BruntonEcho Pocket Scope Monocular

Carry the lightweight, small Brunton Echo Pocket Scope with you to see both faraway and close-up objects better.

Stash the lightweight Brunton Echo Pocket Scope Monocular in your trench coat pocket, and head to the stakeout. This monocular magnifies your view seven times, which means that objects 700 yards away appear to be 100 yards away and seven times larger than with the unaided eye. Even if you don't work as a detective for a living, you'll find the Brunton Echo Pocket Scope useful for birding or viewing a show from your balcony seats at the theater. Plus, with a near focus of 13 inches, you can get close-up views of that cool-looking bug by your foot.

Definitely a Goatworthy bring-along!

The Brunton Echo Pocketscope 7x18 is one of those products every backpacker, cyclist, hiker, hunter, paddler and everyday adventurer should consider. Unless you possess the powers of Superman or The Six Million Dollar Man, everyone likes to see further than we do. The Brunton Echo Pocketscope provides that opportunity!

Much is debated about binocular vs monocular, but the bottomline for those outdoorpersons mentioned above is the thought of bringing binoculars along are usually tossed aside because of size, weight or both. At a featherweight 1.8 oz...weight isn’t a valid excuse...and being no larger than a Hostess Ho-Ho...size can’t be an excuse either. And who doesnt want to see something 7 times closer than the naked eye?

I was given the opportunity to receive and review the Brunton Echo Pocketscope for theDyrt and I am a believer. I brought it everywhere and often forgot I had it because of its diminutive size and light weight. Oftentimes dropping it into my pants pocket or holding it between two fingers.

Images are crisp and clear, subject matter acquisition was quick...and once dialed to my eye, the diopter ring stayed focused.

Brunton’s warranty promise ranks high and the Echo price is low...so reward yourself and see what you’ve been missing!

Definitely a Goatworthy bring-along!

A nice monocular.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave this as a gift to my niece along with some bird identification literature. The scope is nice and light. Also it is easier to use than binoculars, just point it towards the object and with little effort, there it is. I recommend this product.

Good buy

Small. Light. Gets the job done in a lot of situations.

This is a basic monocular that I keep in my pack for getting a closer look at mountain features and snow. Super lightweight and small.

small but packs a punch

Love it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Really compact and soo light ... it weights nothing to be honest . Optics are prety good , with a little practice you can even adjust focus with one hand , great product.

Great Monocular For the Price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Are you looking for a solid monocular to help you spot lines backcountry skiing or pinpoint hiking and climbing routes in Alpine conditions? Look no further! This Brunton monocular is an economical but solid option for those who are looking to save weight or cash instead of buying an expensive bulky set of binoculars. The field of vision is solid for this monocular and as the product info says objects 700 yards away are easily visible (appearing to be 100 yrds away). The eye relief takes some getting used to but is easily adjustable after using it a few times. I highly suggest this to anyone looking for an inexpensive starter monocular! Please feel free to reach out if you have additional questions.



Love this little thing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this little thing. It's so cute and handy. I've used it to check out birds, mountain slopes, even reading the little subway maps on the T. It's a great little tool I always bring on nature walks.

Great for getting a better look

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Absolutely worth having on any trip. I have 20/15 vision and the optics on this are clear. The unit is light. If you see something in the distance but cant quite make it out, this will give you the edge.

compact lightweight but...

    OK for scouting the area a little more up close, but the magnifying is really not very high, but for this price you cannot really complain.

    Not worth it

      The magnificiation provided by this scope is not appreciably greater than what I can see with my unaided eye. I am returning it.

      Good but...

        Just watch exposing the monocular to really high temperatures. While in Afghanistan I left it exposed to some extreme heat and it started rattling (I think some of the glues started softening). So I took it apart to see if I could re-apply some glue where needed and all I really accomplished was getting lots of dust specs all over each of the lens elements lol. Good, cheap, little, light monocular though- I bought another at a great sale price.

        is it weather resistant or waterproof?

        is it weather resistant or waterproof?

        The literature that came with it didn't mention either so I am thinking it is not. With that said, I have had mine out in light mist and fog and did not have any issues.

        I agree with Mike Throgmartin. While it's certainly water resistant, I wouldn't call it water proof after taking it apart- there weren't really any seals. I think the only concern with water would be a drop causing full submersion.

        so far so good

          Bought this as it's tiny and wanted something small to take with me for Peace Corps. I'll know more in a few weeks when I get to use it in the field, but so far, all my home use is good. IT comes with a tiny soft case and lanyard.

          Brunton Monocular

            Size, feel, weight and performance exactly as described on web site. Used it for skiing and mountain biking two days in a row with great satisfaction. Can't attest to longevity as I just received it. Just what you need for spotting the bad guys (Jack Bauer). Son in law was so jealous my daughter is getting him one.

            Does this come with lens caps/protectors...

            Does this come with lens caps/protectors?

            No, it comes in a little nylon case with a flap and velco closure. It does a pretty good job of keep dust off the objectives. I've been hunting little caps for a while without luck. Let me know if you come up with something.

            for skiing

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            I use it for shredding and picking lines. it's great

            light and easy

              Easier to use and carry than full size bunoc's, great for hiking.

              Is there a place to put a chain or cord...

              Is there a place to put a chain or cord on this?

              Best Answer
