Excerpt: I bought this product to use mostly for birding and used it quite a bit on vacation in Costa Rica. They were perfect for our needs and easy to focus between two users and even to share with others. The adjustable eyepieces work well with glasses. Although they were a bit heavier than what I had originally planned on buying I found them very comfortable on walks...especially with the included harness which I love.
Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I'll be using these for my upcoming safari which has both strict weight and size restrictions. I researched all the great recommended binocs (Zeiss, Swarofsky, etc) and have held/ used many others in a more reasonable price point in my quest for the right pair. The Zeiss are [$] which is a bit much for sporadic use. For the [$] these binoculars cost, they are by far the best I've tried. They are compact, the machining is very good and the optical coatings are as well.
Excerpt: wasn't sure if 10x42 will be too big and too heavy for hiking as my last pair was old school, heavy and bulky. These are smaller than the pictures on the website make them appear. Great comfort, light weight and great optics. Use them hiking in NJ and can't wait for weather to improve so I can take them more often.
Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I love my Bushnell HD. The image is very clear, excellent quality. A bit of chromatic aberration in some cases, but nothing disturbing.<br /><br />I remove one star because I have a problem with fog. (It's not supposed to be fogproof ?
Excerpt: I love these Bushnell binoculars! They are perfect for me because I wear glasses and they are so very comfortable and easy to use. The image is clear and bright and I can't wait to take them kayaking. I've been bird watching so far since the weather is so cold and they are great for watching air rifle matches as well - not really a spectator sport but it's nice to check the targets once in a while as a rifle mom.
Pros: Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: Great pair of binoculars. Very clear view, easy to focus, can use even with glasses, and 10x is just right for bird and wildlife viewing. Also the field of view allows a wide panarama that allows you to follow animals as they move. Also great is the smaller size and the fact that it is waterproof. All in all a great pair of binoculars.
Pros: Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Summary: While looking for a quality pair of binoculars for hunting, the main features I was looking for were clarity, brightness, rugged construction all wrapped in a light weight package. The Ultra_HD 8x26 binoculars fill all the criteria and then some. Even if you spend thousands of dollars, you will not find a better pair of binoculars.
