Main technical features


Covering the landscape in front of you becomes comfortable with the help of these binoculars that offer an extra-wide field of view for bird watching, an excellent feature, especially if you are a novice.

Focusing is not a problem, either, because of the close focus feature present on this model that brings the most challenging to see details right in front of your eyes.

You shouldn’t worry about severe weather conditions, as these waterproof and fog proof binoculars will not suffer in harsh conditions, and neither will your ability to see everything from up close.

For a pair of 8×30 binoculars, they are lightweight, which means that you will be able to use them for extended periods without straining your hands. A broad range of accessories is provided with your purchase, in the form of a neck strap, a carrying case, lens covers, and cleaning cloth for the lenses.

In-depth information


A novice will surely appreciate the ease of use offered by these binoculars. This happens mainly because of the way they are constructed, with a wide field of view that allows even a beginner to start bird watching the way he or she should. The 429-foot wide view (at 1000 yards) is a guarantee that you will cover most of the landscape around you in one fell swoop.

Another thing that people who are just starting to use binoculars for wildlife viewing will appreciate in this model is the close focus feature. Even when you are only yards away from your target, you will be able to adjust the focus of your binoculars so that you can admire the finest details of a bird’s feathers or anything else you might want to examine.

You don’t have to worry about being overly protective with your binoculars in case it starts raining where you are. The unit is designed to be waterproof and also fog proof, which means that you will be able to use them in the harshest weather conditions without a glitch. It must be noted that they are also built with durability in mind.

They are ideal as travel binoculars because they are lightweight, especially given that they are an 8×30 model, a category that is not unusually heavy, but not extraordinarily light, either. You will be able to use them without feeling the usual fatigue associated with holding a pair of binoculars to your eyes for prolonged periods of time.

Users are pleased with the array of extras that come with this particular model. You will get a neck strap, which is pretty impressive, seeing that you might need to move around a lot. A carrying case is included, as well, for extra protection. The manufacturer also threw in lens covers and a piece of microfiber cloth, for easy cleaning.

Known issues


Although people with glasses can use these binoculars, some customers say that you would better use them without your prescription glasses, something that might not be to your liking.
