I would love to have a nice pair of binoculars with high quality glass, but they have two huge drawbacks – cost and size/weight. So I have compromised with a pair of binoculars that aren’t too difficult too carry yet provide an improve view on the action.
Size: small enough to fit into pocket with minimal bulk.
Image: the image quality is fine and acceptable. I would recommend you stay away from the expensive models – once you fly in first class you will never want to go back to coach.
Case, straps, etc: All of these are garbage. The cord feels like dental floss around your neck. The soft nylon case offers little benefit.
Other: Finger prints kill the image quality. I would recommend carrying a microfiber cloth with the glasses.
Conclusion: For the price these aren’t too bad for sport events, hunting, and other outdoor activities. I am still saving my pennies for a Cadillac version and hand these down to my son.
