Summary: After years of putting up with cheap binoculars, some of which fell apart or became defective, I decided to treat myself. After doing some research and a bit of dithering I bought these. As a hillwalker I wanted something compact, light and waterproof but better quality than my previous models.
Summary: As the name suggests, these are excellent binoculars to take on holiday. They are fairly light, easy to use and do not fog up as they are filled with nitrogen. This means if you take them from your air conditioned room to temps in the 80's as I did recently, you don't have to wait for ages before...
Summary: A good combination of size v power, they easily fit into my coat pocket and are therefore handy when I want to view, I am usually walking 2 dogs (on leads) but find I can hold the binoculars steady with the one free hand. A good buy at the £100 payed.
Summary: A few years back I treated myself to some Leica Duovids. Super binoculars but too heavy - the result being I seldom take them out when on foot. The hunt was on for a good quality, lightweight alternative.
Summary: I love these binoculars so much that they now stay in my glove box for when I'm out in the country for an impromptu walk. They are very well made - they claim to be shoc proof and water proof though I haven't dropped or soaked them yet to test that.
Summary: It's 33 years since I bought my last (and first) pair of binoculars which are still going strong and in constant use to view wildlife in the back garden. As I'm getting older I thought it would be helpful to have a pair to keep in the car rather than having to remember to take the one pair with me...
