  • Excerpt: Best investment in optics I ever made. Sure, they are a bit bulky,but the clarity with the stabilizer make them my primary binoc.My 15x50mm pair is a constant companion in my vehicle. Never had binoculars that allowed me to "Look" into the woods.I have been using them for 10 years+ with no problems.

these obsolete all your other binoculars

  • Excerpt: no matter how great your optics are if you can't hold the binoculars steady you can't see detail. These eliminate most of the shake and really replace a tripod. I have several dozen binoculars from WWI surplus to Leica and Steiner. These obsolete every one of them.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Bulky, Heavy

  • Excerpt: I have had these binoculars for almost 14 years. I probably average using them a dozen times a year (usually quite gently, although they have been on a boat with light salt spray a couple of times) and they still work perfectly.

Good but not outstanding

Astronomer, Canon
29 May 2014
  • Conclusion: I am an amateur astronomer with 40 years of experience looking through various optics to see deep sky objects. My needs are quite specific to this task and might be more rigorous than many other uses. The image stabilization feature is the primary reason I bought them. It works wonderfully!
  • Pros: image stabilization
  • Cons: optical quality for astronomy, poor lens caps

Great Pair of Binoculars

Bob, B&H Photo
25 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Used for mountain, desert, and lava hiking. Great for animal and land features spotting (don't know about marine use - this is a desert). Exposed objective lenses bothered me, so I added UV filters, 58mm X 7/8" lens hoods, and lens hoodies. Much safer for lens.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: I have been using these binocs for several years and the IS is perfect and I depend on it. It is particularly beneficial for star-gazing - keeps your view steady while trying to see details and faint objects.

Poor eye-cup design

Adorama
29 December 2013
  • Excerpt: The eye-cups should be redesigned to be more adjustable with perhaps side shields to block extraneous light.The lens quality is O.K., but should be better for this price range. Is there an aftermarket eye-cup for this product? I could not find one.
  • Pros: Effective Is, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor Eye-cups
