  • Summary: I love Swift binoculars and my last pair lasted >15 years. I am an ornithologist and I use my binocs every day. I used this pair to study shorebirds and I was initially very impressed but within 2 weeks the pin that attaches the neck strap fell out, dumping the binocs into the sand.
  • Pros: relatively light, clear, easy focus
  • Cons: pin for neckstrap fell out - poorly manufactured
