    Pretty cool little unit. Very light weight.

    has a lanyard you attach to go around your neck.

    Keeps it out of the mud.

    how does the image in the patrol compare to the hunter?

    My local dealer told me the patrol has a better lens on it than the hunter.

    I'm curious, thanks.

    I never noticed it being appreciably better. The Hunter has a sacrificial lens so that may introduce a small loss.

    But I don't think most eyes could tell much of a difference.

    I currently have both the IR Patrol M250 and the IR Hunter MKII on loan from ******************* (Thanks ********!) for evaluation on game surveys. I'll put a complete write-up in a different thread as I get more data but I can tell you that my eyes can not tell the difference between the image quality on the two. Both are pretty darn good and quite impressive for such a small objective lens (~19mm) and the picture is clear from edge to edge of the viewfinder. I currently only have through-the-tube cell phone quality photos and video but that should change soon.

    With both units I have been able to detect animals in the 200+ yards range easily, even in the 80 and 90 degree temperatures of deep south Texas at night.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that there are several additional settings that I have yet to adjust with the IR Hunter MKII (that are not available on the IR Patrol M250 in my possession) that could allow for a better picture when looking at items farther away.
