Excerpt: My wife is confined to a chair in the house. She watches the birds and deer out in the yard through the sliding glass doors. These are the perfect tool for her to see details of the wildlife and she just loves it. She says she could count the fleas on the deer.
Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: After an easy adjustment to my vision, these binoculars are awesome. I'm able to see clearly and with great precision. I use them for birding and they work great. It allows me to quickly hone in on my target and they are steady....so I can get a look at the bird before it flits away. I'd recommend them!
Excerpt: Easy to adjust pupil distance and focusing. The size is ideal and comfortable to hold. I live at the beach so there is a lot to focus on: ships, birds, etc. Waterproof is a plus for the beach and boating. Strength is ideal. Wouldn't want anything heavier.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
If you are hunting within 200 yards, they are good for the money.

Summary: These are not top of the line binoculars but for my predator hunting and 100+ yard viewing they are spot on. Clear crisp viewing and pretty good low light gathering. All in all well woth the price. Seem to be pretty durable.
Excerpt: Size is compact and convenient, but not too small. Great viewing for wildlife. So handy that the lens caps are attached so I don't loose them. Not a big deal, but the lens cloth that comes with it isn't very good, so I recommend a eyeglass cloth to keep in your case. Great quality and price point, especially being water-proof!! Very satisfied with my purchase. I researched many pairs and retailers before deciding on this one from B&H.
Pros: Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: Focus bridge for the eyepiece flexes with little pressure making focussing difficult. Eye relief rated at 16mm, but deep set lenses make it too small for my eye glasses to see the full field of view.
Excerpt: This is a nice product. It's compact and lightweight with good optics at an affordable price. Focus is easy to attain and the lens caps are designed well. The color is much darker than shown in the website image; a very dark navy, almost black. Unfortunately, the supplied neck strap is lacking. I replaced it with an OP/TECH Classic Strap and the combination is very comfortable to carry for long periods.
Excerpt: I returned these binoculars to B&H and bought better glasses from another source. The H2Os are decent for the money, but next to 2 other pair I tried (Alpen Wings 10x42 and Bushnell Excursion EX 10x42) they were less bright and had a smaller FOV (305 v 330 and 341ft). The brightness and clarity may have to do with the fact that the H2Os are not fully multi-coated and there is no phase coating on the prisms. The weights of all 3 pair are about the same.
Pros: Decent For Price
Cons: Limited field of view, Not As Bright An Image As
