I Love 'em!Review by justkate

Overall
I had a pair of these for 10 years, but managed to lose them recently. I loved them so much I want to replace them with exactly the same model.
They are really small and light, but with the 8x42 spec of 'proper' birdwatching binoculars - the perfect compromise of 'good enough magnification with good field of view. Although i am tempted to get a more compact pair for keeping in my car, or even taking in my bike basket I have regulalry taken these in my hand luggage when travelling, and they are easy to pack. We often meet others with more fancy models, but the only time I would want any other features would be if I was doing a lot of birdwatching from a boat - when I think I would definitely want to get image stabilising. For everyday use, I think it would be hard to better these - particularly in this price bracket. The only 2 problems I had with mine were that the central hinge did not hold - so using them one-handed was tricky, and that the strap would slip, causing it to slip off completely on one occasion and I dropped the bins. These may have just been problems with that particular pair, however. (Posted on 27/07/2019)
