Excerpt: I bought these binoculars for sightseeing in Maine, and they have proved to be a fantastic purchase. These come with their own lightweight bag and offer crystal clear bird watching. One thing I didn't expect was how heavy they were. They will definitely add noticeable weight to your backpack, roughly that of a DSLR.
Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: Very Clear Detailed Optics,great for astronomy as well..I like to use them with a tripod for less shake.Anything over 10X50 would require a Tripod.These Legacys are pretty versatile tho..I'm glad I purchased these!
Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I bought these to carry in my pickup mostly for wildlife viewing in Montana. They are clear and powerful enough for my type of viewing. They are also inexpensive enough that if the grand kids somehow break them it won't be a big deal. These are a good value for the money.
Pros: Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I am no expert on binoculars, but these have fantastic clarity. I ordered them because my 8x42 wasn't strong enough to view a hawk's nest near our house. These really weren't strong enough, either, so I returned them. They were, however, far clearer than the 8x42 Celestron pair that I use for backyard birding. They were also twice as large, but not much heavier. I would have kept them if I didn't already have a decent pair of binoculars.
