Excerpt: I recently purchased these 8X42 Trailseeker bins and was able to compare them directly to my Vanguard Spirit XF 8X42's which are also sold here. I took them both into the field under various lighting conditions.
Excerpt: Incredible quality for the money, these are so sharp. I can't believe the detail I can see for miles away. The close focus is an important feature as well, one of the reasons I chose these. These are comfortable, lightweight, well balanced and sharp.
Excellent Binoculars and Terrific Customer Service

Excerpt: These binoculars are wonderful from top to bottom. The body is compact and lightweight yet feels very sturdy. The glass is crystal clear and is quick and easy to focus. The eyecups are comfortable with sufficient eye relief. They also provide a very wide field of view (a major selling point for me).
Excerpt: This is a very good binocular for the money. The image is sharp and bright with good field of vision. Feels good in your hand and does not feel heavy on the neck. While there are binoculars with betters specs out there, these are excellent value.
Excerpt: Why do we love it? We love the bright clear optic from the 42mm objective lens. We love the ability to judge range using the built in graticle - it is very accurate with practise and by knowing the physical dimensions of some common objects such as the length of the car, the height of a human.
Excerpt: I purchased these binoculars last January to more closely watch the birds in my backyard at the feeders. Here in Vermont the winters are hard on everyone, especially on the birds. I love these binoculars. They are lightweight, easy to hold and the lens provide a crystal clear view.
Excerpt: We lecture on cruise ships -my subject is astronomy. For night sky sessions I wanted a smaller lightweight inexpensive pair with reasonable lightgrasp to check the sky.
The price was a little less than a X Cel LX eyepiece!
