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. I tried to get it fixed locally and they said the hole was stripped. When I contacted the company they just referred me to a place where I could get it fixed.
Pros: relatively light, clear, easy focus
Cons: pin for neckstrap fell out - poorly manufactured
