    Nikon quality in a small package at a great price!

    I am really enjoying these little binoculars. They are great for everything from bird and deer watching in my backyard and the woods near my house to concerts and sporting events. I also own a pair of larger Nikon Prostaff 7S 10X42s that are awesome as well but these you hardly know are around your neck. Their small size and being able to take them easily and have them with me while hiking or doing outside activities was my reason for purchase. They come with a handy neck strap and travel case too. The optics are good, you can see perfectly and they focus great with adequate light but not quite there with my larger set. They are fine for the vast majority of what you would use binoculars for though. It's important to understand that not only these but any set of binoculars this size will not let in enough light for you to see well in lower light conditions. If you want to be able to see well late in the evening, very early in the morning or deep in the woods you want at least a 10X42. Bottom line these are a wonderful Nikon quality, compact easy to have with you set of binoculars for a very reasonable price and I highly recommend them.

    Light weight/compact binoculars

    Cannot really review how they will work from my grandsons perspective as they were purchased for his Christmas gift. In my opinion these binoculars appear quite light weight, compact and HOPEFULLY durable. Because of these qualities I think a child can handle the product easily and enjoy many hours of fun while gathering a wealth of education due to their ease of function. However, I wish the lens covers were attached so they aren’t such an obvious opportunity for getting lost. We all know kids and adults loose pieces like this as well as camera lens covers. There has to be someone who thinks about this possibility in terms of product function. They should figure a way for a very thin strap attachment to be affixed to the binoculars that would certainly save some grief and disappointment by the owners (child or adult). Because kids are kids, I’m quite sure these binoculars will be accidentally dropped. The real proof in this products quality is the durability of the lens from getting too easily cracked or shattered. They are surrounded by what appears to be a VERY DURABLE outer covering for protection, so I’m just hoping they hold up well. NIKON has a very positive following of products in the marketplace so hopefully I won’t be disappointed. I also purchased the GEEK SQUAD Insurance Policy. Only time will tell.

    I use these mainly for hunting. The binoculars are fairly compact and have a nice feel to them. The included neck strap is nice, but I wish it was a little longer. Clarity is better than expected for a pair of binoculars in this price range. They work fairly well in low light conditions. I am able to see in the woods with them until it is too dark for me to hunt. The hinge between the two halves is stiff which in my opinion is a good thing. Once I have them set for my eyes, they stay put. The focus ring and the main focus wheel on top are also quite stiff which can be a problem if you are trying to operate them with one hand. Hopefully they will loosen up over time. Overall, I would say that these binoculars are a good solid 4 stars in their category. I bought them on sale for less than $50 which made my decision to buy them very easy. If you are tired of the really cheap compact binoculars that don't stay aligned or have poor image quality, try a pair of these Nikon 10x25's. You won't be disappointed.

    I went into Best Buy looking for binoculars for a trip out west. I wanted something that I could take hiking and compared these binoculars to another larger set in-store. They were the same price and the larger set had slightly better magnification. The glass inside both seemed to be of similar quality. I decided to go with this smaller size due to it's compact design and weight. I took them on my hikes and used them on multiple occasions. They were just the right size and weight to carry on my hip for multiple miles. They're also small enough to take to baseball games, graduations, etc. without standing out in the crowd. I'd highly recommend these binoculars across multiple scenarios and events.

    My wife wanted a small set of binoculars to take on her Alaskan cruise. I saw these on the BB website and decided to check them out. I like everything about them and made the purchase. When she got home I surprised her with them and she was overjoyed about the physical size...I was her hero for the day!! She took them on her trip and loved them...good set to get for a purse, etc.

    Easy Carry/Good Viewing

    Compact, lightweight, and seemingly well-constructed. Obviously, there is a trade-off between field of vision and magnification versus portability, but these binoculars are well suited for hiking and general sightseeing. Purchased and used for a just-completed road trip through the U.S. Southwest. Found them very easy to carry and good way to get "up close and personal" with sights in Death Valley, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and other locations in between.

    These binoculars are fabulous. Excellent quality. Nice clear view and far distance. I used them for a concert and they were amazing. I was in the rear of the stadium but I could see clearly as if I was in the front row. They are perfect for travelling. The binoculars are a nice and compact size. They fit right in my small purse. I would absolutely recommend this product.

    I used these at a stadium event. I bought them for their compact size. Maybe I had to high of an expectation, but they didn't have enough magnification for me. I purchased them in store, so they only had 2 different pairs in stock, and the other pair were huge. I needed up returning them and will search for something that meets my needs better. That being said, they did have nice clear optics. The lenses were on the smallish side for dimmer light viewing, but I assumed that by their compact size.

    These binoculars are prefect for packing. We use them in our vehicle and on our boat. We can look at birds and keep track of our neighbors from the hot tub. The clarity is great and details are easy to make out. There not as powerful as the big boys but they meet our needs.

    Used these binoculars for an Alaskan cruise and I was so glad that we took our own. The cruise line had some in our rooms, but they had been abused and didn't work well. My wife and I were able to see whales breach the water from quite a distance and really enjoy scenery that wouldn't have been possible without them.

    I needed a compact pair of binoculars that I could store in my golf bag or glove compartment of my car in case I noticed an unusual bird. I did not need to spend several hundred dollars since I only needed them occasionally. The optics are good to very good. As can be expected in a small pair like this the field of view is fairly narrow. They do the job I needed.

    I bought this pair of binoculars for viewing the singers at a performance of the Metropolitan Opera. They were perfect! I have them in my car now for ready usage in the future. They are small and easily carried in your pocket but also come with a case and neck strap. Very satisfied!

    Wife bought them for me to go to a fancy opera shindigg... I ended up loving them so much they replaced my vortex pair in my hunting bag, not as “zoomy” as the x’52 but they are so much lighter and crystal clear. The coating makes it a little hard to get skin oil off the lens

    I purchased the binoculars to take with me on a 13 day land and cruise tour of Alaska. I used the binoculars every day with no problems nor complaints. The magnification was excellent and the small size made it easy to carry the binoculars in my jacket pocket. Very pleased with my purchase. Highly recommend!

    As a hiker, snowshoer and traveler, I'm looking for a set of binoculars which can offer more fun during the trips. This is the perfect one for me. It's SUPER light and the picture quality is great. 10x Magnification allows you to zoom in farther. I highly recommend it if you are an outdoor person.

    these binoculars are a nice size for everyday bird watching and they have a very good zoom and focus. I love them, so much better than the bigger ones I have. I sit on couch and watch the bird feeders or whatever I want...vision is clear and crisp.

    I wanted a small, lightweight, compact pair of binoculars to take to Disney World for viewing the birds at the parks. These were perfect! They fit nicely into my day pack and were quite usable for viewing all of the birds. I will keep these in my car for everyday use. Great pair for the price!

    I always wished to own a binocular for sports and bird watching. However, this item does not provide all the features that I was expecting. A higher-end binocular would have been a better choice. But if you only need a simple and less expensive item, this binocular will be just fine.
