Heavy but good

  • Excerpt: I bought these binoculars to replace the binoculars I've been taking to football games for 30 years. They are powerful enough so you can see the details of the game even in the nosebleed section, and wide enough so you can see a lot of the field.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof
  • Cons: Heavy

As expected

  • Excerpt: It's bright and clear. Purchased as a gift for my mom to watch birds feed in the backyard. I used them for a week before I mailed them to her. I probably would buy something smaller for myself if I wanted a pair to throw in my hiking bag but again, no complaints with the optics.

Great value for the money

  • Excerpt: I use these for birding. Specifically, locating birds that will become photographic subjects. These binocs focus easily, and work well even in low light situations. They are a bit heavy, and may be too large for someone with small hands to comfortably use the center focus.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Great bins but not as per picture

  • Summary: Slightly disappointed to have received binoculars which look nothing like the picture in amazon. This inaccuracy notwithstanding these are excellent binoculars. The low light performance is great and I could see considerably more in full moon conditions than with the naked eye.

Great binoculars for the price

  • Summary: These really are very good binoculars for £100. I tested them as soon as I got them, going out for sunrise. They were therefore tested in low light conditions and they performed really well. I could see everything clearly and they let in so much light.
