Excerpt: I wanted something that I could carry easily in my brief case to have available to look at birds and other wildlife. Also, I live right by Lake Michigan and I wanted to be able to observe freighter traffic on the lake as I take my walks.
Pros: Accurate Ranging, Easy To Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I keep this in my brief case for the occasional need to view birds or other distant items while on business travel. It provides a nice, bright and clear view at a reasonable distance. While there are better quality monoculars available, this one provides a good value for the price.
Excerpt: We use it for casual bird and wildlife watching. Image is very clear and bright considering its only a 25mm objective. Close focus is a nice bonus. Build quality is excellent. Very easy to carry around. Fits in any pocket. Far exceeds my expectations.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: Overall a very good product. I would not rate the optics of this scope as superior, though they are clear and bright. Perhaps the main advantage of this monocular is the very close range of 13 inch for near focus, allowing the scope to function for small print reading if necessary.
