Excerpt: I almost did not buy these due to some bad reveiws on other sites. But reading the comments I felt they may be getting a bad rap and they are. To start with at the price these are selling for you cannot compare these to Monarchs, Stiners, or even other DCF models these after all are [$] dollar binos.Eye relief is not great for use with eyeglasses, but most binos in this price range have the same eye relief of 9 to 12mm and are not good as well.
Summary: These are the perfect binocular. I purchased the 10 x 42 for wildlife observation and hunting. The optics are perfect. I can see deer in a field through these glasses on half hour after I can't see them with my naked eye. My brother wanted to use them for reading electric meters so he wouldn't have to get out of his truck. Yea, they are good. The wieght is up there and carring them may seem akward but the strength is there.
Summary: After reading many reviews from other companies about this product after I made the purchase,I carefully removed the Binocular's from the package thinking I would be returning them. Brought them out in my kayak today and they were great. Nice product,clear image, nice size and they are waterproof.
