Excerpt: We use these to sit on our lanai on Maui during whale season. We can see for miles, all the whale activity. It helps with the compass to let the next person know where to look for them. We also use them on the boat or kayak while on the water. I am now ordering a second pair. Couldnt be happier.
Summary: I wanted a pair of all purpose binoculars that I could use camping or sailing. I really wanted at least a range finder and the internal compass was a real bonus (neither obstruct your view and the compass only turns on when you want it too). The clarity, due to the fully coated lenses, and the field of view are superb. As far as I am concerned, this is by far the best pair of all around binoculars I could have purchased, especially in this price range.
Excerpt: The compass is easy to use, very good lenses quality. I specially like the light for night usage of the compass.I wear prescription glasses but you can adjust it to use without your prescriptions glasses.
