I wanted a small set of light weight binoculars to take hiking so I could spot birds. I have a great big one, but I don't want to lug that around while hiking. This set folds up tiny (see the pictures, smaller than a dollar bill) and weighs nothing. You can put in a pocket or use the case on a belt. The magnification is good and the lenses clear. More magnification becomes harder to hold still enough to identify a bird anyway; this is just enough. Easy to adjust to eye width and focus. One thing, my husband has a wide face and widely set eyes, these did not extend wide enough for him to use well, but I love them.
This one is ultracompact, i.e. pocketfriendly, compared to other bigger and heavier binocs. This lightweight and compact form-factor make it much more convenient & practical in all aspects.
These binoculars will work well as a secondary pair to keep in the car and use during travels. For their very low price, they offer good optics that snap into focus, including the diopter aadjustment for the right eye. And they seem well-made, and they fold into a very small size for carrying around. I wish they came with rubber caps to protect the front and rear lens elements, but I wasn't surprised that they were not included at this very low price.
Purchased pricey tickets for the Broadway play "Wicked", which was touring in my city. Unfortunately, despite being pricey, the seats were only a couple of rows away from being all the way in the back of the theater, which meant, we'd be quite far away from the stage. Foreseeing this issue, I decided to give these binoculars a chance, considering the positive reviews, despite the fact they were not "glitzy" and "fancy" like some others with stainless steel, chains, and handles. I wanted something that would be of good quality, even if not showy. I am glad I trusted the great reviews on these binoculars and went ahead and purchased them. The clarity and zoom was unbelievable, especially considering the low price I paid for them. While the people looked like ants from my seat, with the binoculars, I could see their eyes, their teeth, heck, even their wrinkles! The clarity was amazing! I had never owned a pair of binoculars and although I borrowed some once, I was disappointed with the visibility, and was skeptical about this purchase. I am glad I took the chance and the fact these are light, small, and foldable, making it easy to put in my purse. I am headed to the UniverSoul Circus in a couple of weeks, and will make sure to have these binoculars in town!
This compact binocular is small, light and works well. It is easy to focus each individual eyepiece easily. If you need to purchase a compact binocular for the opera, theatre, sporting events, etc., I recommend this.
