  • Excerpt: For birding these have excellent light gathering ability, are easy to adjust, lightweight, have great close focus as well as distance, and easy to grip. The fact they are waterproof takes the fear of the rain ruining a good pair of binoculars away.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Good light gathering, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses

  • Excerpt: I got these for birdwatching and they are bright and sharp. They are very light and easy to focus and hold with one hand while holding my dog's leash in the other. The only thing I don't like is the eyepiece lens cap which are very loose, but I don't use them when I'm out hiking anyways.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof

Excellent value high quality Binoculars

  • Excerpt: We purchased these Nikon 8x42 Monarch 5 Binoculars to replace an old Nikon set that we loved to use for years. These new ones are even better and outstanding for viewing in low light (at the theater or ballet) as well as outside for sports and action activities.

  • Excerpt: Love these. Have been using lesser binoculars and had a birding friend suggest I'd see a notable difference from these and I do. Clear, stable and comfortable. The reviews I relied upon and m6 friend's advice were correct, these are great binoculars and at a very reasonable price.

  • Excerpt: We live on the water and use the Monarch 10x42s from our home for waterfowl and general sightseeing. They are crisp, light, easy to use and perform better in early morning light then I would have thought. Easy to keep the 10 power steady in our situation.
