In tests conducted by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute, these compact binoculars delivered the best combination of image quality, ease of use, and durability. Analysts were able to clearly view eight of ten rows of an eye chart from 200' away using The Best model, but were only able to see five rows of the eye chart with lesser binoculars. The Best Compact Zoom Binoculars had the easiest to adjust diopter and they were the only model with a tripod mount that's ideal for watching birds for extended periods. In durability tests, the binoculars' lenses stayed fog-free in sub-freezing temperatures, and their grip-enhancing rubberized coating prevented damage after repeated drops from a height of 3'. The binoculars' 21mm objective lenses produce up to a 261' field of view at 1,000 yards and they have fully multi-coated lenses and a Bak-4 prism system, providing 8X to 16X magnification that remains sharp and bright at any distance. 2 1/4" H x 4 1/2" W x 4 1/2" D. (11 oz.)

Easy to use`and great clarity of focus
from Washington coast
I gave the binoculars to myself as a birthday gift and with the short time I had them they were by far the nicest binoculars I've ever owned. I researched the zoom type and was a little Leary of the focus ability, but I was very pleased with them. They met or exceeded all my expectations.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Big Power in Small Package
I use these for bird watching primarily and can see even the smallest markings and features on birds. Light weight for easier carrying while hiking and love, love, love the "snap-in" strap holder! For the price - the best I've had.
Really are the Best Binoculars!

WORKS WELL, BUT MAINTAIN YOUR FOCUS
from Nevada City CA
Great for bird and airplane ID. Strap is not comfortable, but small size of the binocs easy to carry. I could not use them in combo with my glasses, but did not need to with focal choices. The diopter adjustment is tricky but effective when done according to instructions. The largest problem for me was keeping the diopter setting locked with the spring-loaded knob. The knob has a tendency to pop out during use, making refocusing of diopter setting for both eyes necessary. Light gathering is good for a 16X21 ratio, better at 8X21. I like the product and any drawbacks are worth the service they provide.
Easy to hold, and excellent optics
from honeybrook, Penna.
I am headed to Zambia to take in the migration and water gathering of the great African animals. I bought these binoculars for their optics, ease of handling and the zoom feature. Have used them for bird and wildlife viewing locally and am even more convinced this was the perfect buy for the African trip .No disappointments with this purchase. n
Good product, fair price
from Osage Beach, MO
Great for viewing boats on the lake, or landmarks while boating...
