What the spyglass was for pirates searching for an approaching ship, Maven’s CM.1 Monocular is for the outdoor enthusiast to spot … well, almost anything. With its condensed polymer frame, 8×32 configuration, low-light performance, and lightweight, waterproof design — this is an optic that is worthy of any outdoor adventure.
After testing it for the past month, one GearJunkie team member can’t get over how handy this thing is. From wildlife watching, to scoping new lines while splitboarding, to hunting for elk antler sheds, the CM.1 has been a welcome addition to his pocket and his pack.
It’s easy to carry, and the weight is just right, feeling heavy-duty enough to withstand a lot of wear and tear in the field.
If you value traveling fast and light in the backcountry and would like to bring along a compact optic that doesn’t skimp on clarity, the Maven CM.1 Monocular will be a steadfast companion.
