WOW!!

  • Excerpt: Wonderful binoculars. They are crystal clear,very light to carry,and easy to focus.I wear glasses and these worked perfectly. Once you have them in focus and set to your eyes they don't change. On a recent deer hunt in cloudy, low light conditions these Nikon binoculars provided excellent visibility of deer at a distance of over a hundred yards. I would highly recommend these Nikon Monarch 5 binoculars.

This one makes good sense

  • Excerpt: I never have any price range in mind when buying a new product, so I check full range of options from "Chevy" to "Cadillac" then determine proper price range. I've bought this binocular as a gift for my wife who loves to watch birds, squirrels, raccoons and other animals in our backyard and beyond - in the woods.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof
  • Cons: No Stabilizer

Simply spectacular!

  • Excerpt: The optics on the Nikon 10x42 Monarch 5 are clear and crisp and the focus knob is easy to use. Will adjust to fit a small face so would be a good choice for a junior. Close focus is great! I *love* the front lens covers - stout construction and fast to deploy. The carry case is nice and spacious, but I would like to see something besides a belt loop on it - put a grommet on it for a carabiner.

  • Excerpt: I'm a first time birder, but wanted something really good without being too expensive. It may be normal now, but I love the attached lens covers so you can't lose them. I love that you can use it with or without glasses and there is an adjustment for it. They are lightweight. Perfect for me!

Great pair of binoculars.

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a moderately price pair of binoculars. I have had a pair of Nikon binoculars for 20 years or so but wanted to get something up to date.I wear glasses so I wanted a pair with good eye-relief. This pair is outstanding. They are very easy to set up. The focus is very easy to adjust.I am very happy with this purchase.

Perfect for my close-set eyes

  • Excerpt: I previously owned Nikon Aculon 8x42, my first pair for birding. They are very good, but a bit too heavy and I thought I could look for something a little better. My selection of binoculars 1st depended on the interpupillary distance being small enough for my eyes. I thought I could do research online, but unfortunately specs don't always include this measurement and sometimes the models change (tried Eagle Optics Ranger and their older model would fit me, but the newest...

Everything I was looking for

  • Excerpt: I needed binoculars with a narrow interpupillary distance. Although the specification says 56 mm for the minimum IPD, it looks like the actual IPD is 55 mm which worked out great for me. These binoculars are also lighter than most 8 x 42 binoculars. The fog proof feature is also great. The one thing that I wish it had was a larger field of view, but that might be impossible to have without compromising the other great features of this binocular.

Great product. With a few niggles

  • Summary: I bought this product as I was in the market for a top quality binocular. The only thing I dislike is the front eye cups as they are too loose. It's no zeiss but at the price there's nothing better.

The best binocular I've found under $400.00!

  • Summary: I have had many pairs of binoculars. These Nikon Monarch 5 8x42 are excellent. I have owned many more expensive binos that were not nearly as clear and bright as these. I have not found a pair of glasses as good as these for the money.
