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.)

What bird is that!
By Carol watching the birds
from Washingtonville, NY
I use these binoculars basically for bird watching. They are light and compact and easy to carry on walks or hiking. The adjustment ring is easy to use.
Small package - Big BOOM!
from St. Catharines, Ontario
I have used a lot of viewing devices, but this is the best yet! Love the simple design and well thought out features. Features that I will use.
Compact Zoom Binoculars.
from New England
The only problem I had was determining the position of the diopter adjusting ring for adjusting. In or out? Careful rereading of the "How to Use" section of the manual and a little experimenting solved this problem. The only problem left is the lack of birds due to winter and a frozen lake.

Great for picking up necessary details in birds to accurately identify them.
Best binoculars I have ever bought
By Noah the Ark keeper wife
from Lizella Ga
I like to bird watch and this is great for bird watching it is so compact,and easy to use I enjoy using. I really did not find anything I do not like about the compact binoculars.
from Pine Island
These are great binoculars! We live on a 50 acre farm, so there's lots of things we need to see that are very far away. Yesterday we had turkeys in a plowed field; the day before geese in the harvested corn field.

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.
