Stunning and functional

  • Excerpt: As an ocean lifeguard, I've used several types of lower grade binos in the past and eventually just gave up on using binos all together because they would always have issues. After I was introduced to the Nikon Monarch 3, I knew I had to have them.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses

Sectacular Optics!

  • Excerpt: As a beginning birder the Nikon Monarch binoculars add so much to the adventures and treks to find birds. Several other members of the group on a recent trip to Bend, Oregon had good binoculars, but my new Nikon purchase was the best view yet.

A long time coming.

  • Summary: We spend a lot of time at the ocean and I've always wanted a good pair of binoculars. I looked a long time before I purchased my Monarch 5's. I am super happy with them, but Nikon could make a better case for their product, and the eye cup covers are too loose.

Very bright

  • Excerpt: I have an older pair of the Monarchs, maybe they're a Monarch 3? Anyway I needed a second pair and decided to upgrade to the 5, based on a review done by the Cornell Lab or Ornithology. I couldn't be happier, I liked the old pair and was tempted to just get the 3 but the 5 is a huge improvement.

Best for the price

  • 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

great bino

  • 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
