Excellent choice

  • Summary: Received the Alpine Shasta within one week and loved it right out of the box. Extremely sharp, clear images. I live on the Intracoastal Waterway and have a great clear view of the area. I can view boat names a half mile away. The 10x42 is perfect for viewing and not hard to hold still for viewing.
  • Pros: lightweight easy to hold and adjust for viewing
  • Cons: none to report

  • Summary: Very solid and well-built binoculars. They are a bit larger and heavier than what I expected, but that's OK. Excellent optics.

Good Binocular

Shailesh, Costco

  • Summary: I have been wanting to buy a binocular for some time now. When I saw this one at Costco with a discount I knew I had to get this. Price is very good and, of course, I trusted Costco for the quality. I should say I am happy with this item. Image is very crisp and clear and the binocular can pull in subjects quiet far away.
  • Pros: image quality nice feel and girp carry case
  • Cons: nothing i can think of

Great buy!

  • Summary: After researching and handling some in other stores, I decided to give these a shot knowing the return would be easy if I didn't like the view. I am very happy with the purchase and I'm glad Costco had these available. My need was binoculars for bird watching and I wanted a decent pair so I didn't have to deal with eye strain. These are nice quality, meet my water proof requirements and are easy to use. The adjustment is easy. The eye relief is very nice.
  • Pros: easy to adjust great view quality equipment

Ranger Tom, REI

  • Summary: I picked these up as a spare pair and a knockaround pair for float trips. They are superb for the price point. The focus is quite clear and they seem pretty sturdy. I've been in a flipped canoe where they were under water for 4 minutes and didn't leak a bit.I lead birding walks as a park ranger and have used the a bit on the job too.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Heavy

Good Product

  • Summary: This is a really good product, the glass is very clear and bright, the weight is really good and it comes with protective covers.. The only negative item is that the binoculars range between the eyes does not spread wide enough for my preference... But I do recommend buying this product!!
  • Pros: Clear glass, easy to focus, light weight, price good
  • Cons: Relief between eye too short
