Summary: I purchased these as a gift for a friend who's always enjoyed watching things in nature. Not knowing much about what to look for, I did some research and found that these were highly rated for the money. So far my friend has raved about them and how enjoyable it is to see things up close.
Summary: I've got a really nice (but expensive) pair of binoculars that I bought years ago, but I hardly ever use them. I keep them put up out of harms way and don't really like how heavy they are. Since these were so cheap, I bought a pair on a whim and have really enjoyed them since then.
