Summary: I did a lot of research before deciding on these particular binoculars and I do not regret that time spent. These binos are simply the best I have owned. A good practical carrying case. Flip off and fold away lens hoods that are easy to use. Excellent build quality. Ergonomically well designed to fit into the hands easily and securely. A good quality broad strap fits snugly around the neck Excellent eye relief, the best I have come across.
Summary: Bright and clear view. Feel comfortable and robust. As a spectacle wearer these work well with the soft rubber eye cups rolled back, no need to remove specs and no damage to the lenses of my specs. Nice broad neck strap and being waterproof I'm happy to leave them 'out' hanging around my neck when out and about in the soggy west of Scotland
Summary: Bought for my father's 70th birthday. He lives in Africa and is frequently visiting various game safaris and loves these for game and bird watching. He is very happy to have them exposed to dust on safari and the occasional thunderstorm and loves the fact that they have such good weather seals. A winner for me!
Great value for money and perfect if you wear spectacles

Summary: It’s been a long time since I’ve owned a pair of binoculars – some Swift 10x50s that were dropped so many times that I could no longer see through them. For a long time I had little use for a pair and when I needed some I borrowed my daughter’s very nice 8x40s. I had a birthday coming up and I’d started birdwatching again so I thought I’d treat myself to a pair. That’s when I discovered that the world of binoculars had changed dramatically since I last owned a pair.

Summary: Although I only received these bins a short time ago I thought I would write a brief review. The construction of these bins is pretty good with no sharp or unfinished edges and the rubber casing the chassis and tubes being tactile and confidence inspiring not feeling like they could slip out of your hands.
Summary: I own quite any good Binoculars frrom Zeiss, leica, Nikon, Steiner Leupold Minox, Docter, Meopta, Swarovski , Vortex, Minox, Fuji and many other brands. This one is really not a highlight in my collection, simply average as consummers stuff. So 3 Stars = it's Okay This is an adequate estimation.
Summary: I bought these as a gift for my partner and he is totally delighted with them. The clarity is first class, they are lightweight and come with a sturdy case. I would definitely recommend Barr and Stroud. I did contact them prior to purchase to check a couple of things with them and found them knowledgeable and friendl. Very happy with 1, the service and 2, the product.
