Summary: I keep these in the glove compartment of my car so that I have a decent binocular available should the need arise. These are typical of the compact genre with the barrels independently hinged, a strong cord neck strap and convenient lightly padded case.
Summary: I was hesitant to buy these considering I have seen a few small binoculars with high magnification ( 12x and more ) that had a lot of shake and poor long distant images. Not the case with these small hand held ones - they are even better than my 10x. Nice for bird watching, concert, sports.
