Maven C.1

• 8x42 • $325 • Direct-to-con­sumer brand

The up­start com­pany that brought us cus­tom­iz­a­ble op­tics—the abil­ity to bling out a binoc­u­lar—has in­tro­duced a dressed-down 8x42. You can’t mix and match your own fur­ni­ture on the C.1. But what you get is a very good op­tic at about a third the price of Maven’s B.1. It sources the C.1 from the Philip­pines (the B.1 orig­i­nates in Ja­pan), and shaved both cost and weight with a poly­mer frame. The op­tics are bright and crisp, and the alu­minum trim gives the C.1 a re­strained but dis­tinc­tive ap­pear­ance.
