Excerpt: Bought product for the boat and college football games , seats in the end zone. Just returned from first game and they worked well. I wear eyeglasses and prefer to remove them when using the binoculars.
Excerpt: I purchased these to throw in the car, and not have to worry about an expensive pair of binos being stolen or lost.
For their price, they seem to be very well made. Image is great and they do feel very solid.
They are also nice and small, so easy to put in a bag and carry around.
Excerpt: I am not an expert, but I have always enjoyed using binoculars. Just casually surveying areas on a hike or getting closer to wildlife.
These bino's have great optics and I have used them in a lite rain.
They are a little heavier than some, but probably due to the grip material...
Excerpt: Solid build, good quality image in it's class. Do not expect same result as from bigger objective lens binoculars. It is just 25. I have Nikon 8x42 - big difference.Because of waterproof construction it is hard to rotate the focus and diopter adjustment rings. Lightweight.
Summary: I like these pretty well and they provide a good view. However, they are a bit heavier than some other compacts, and the eyecups were just terrible--they wouldn't stay rolled! I ended up cutting them off since I wear glasses.
Excerpt: These aren't as sleek looking as the Nikon trailblazers I compared them with, but for about half the price for the same features (waterproof, twistup eyecups, etc.), no major difference in the quality of the view, and a more stable focus wheel, they're fantastic.
