Brunton Laser Echo Rangefinder Review

It's no secret that, in the last few years, electronics have come down in price and improved in quality. These days, consumers expect and generally get much better performance with far less sticker shock.

Hunters have benefited too. Microelectronics have opened up a whole new world in GPS navigation, outdoors communications, photography, and range estimation. And each of these things has enhanced the outdoors experience.
