I was able to share these at a concert a few months back, I knew I had to get me a pair. The looks are deceiving, they are small and compact but they pack a big punch! They are water resistant, which is great because if you do many outdoor area concerts you will know that rain can and will inevitably happen during a concert. I found them to be easy to hold, they are small but not too small. The eye pieces are rubberized making them comfortable to look through, the last pair I had would leave marks under your eyes after you looked trough them and that was not only uncomfortable but unattractive. I think for under $20.00 you just cannot beat these binoculars! I found mine on Amazon and if you are looking for your first pair or a spare pair these might just be for you. Bushnell is a company that has been around for quite some time and have always produced quality products and these are no exception.
