    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.

    Good for the price

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Simple Binocular

    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.

    Just purchased these for an upcoming cruise to Alaska. The size is perfect for packing and for hanging around my neck. The clarity of the lens is awesome! I think these will be just the right binoculars for viewing whales, glaciers and wildlife from the deck of the ship!

    These compact binoculars are really good quality for the price. The focus is crisp and they are really easy to use. The only thing I don't like is the fact that they don't have lens covers for the bottom lens. They do have covers for the eye pieces. They will fog up in a humid environment fyi.

    Love these, they are small, light weight and great for hiking, etc. I didn't give the full 5 stars because they are limited on the distance , but I did want a compact size. I do guided tours and my hikers love using these as well.

    I bought these to replace small binoculars that I lost. They are not quite as small as I would have liked and a little heavy. They are powerful, especially for their size. (And then I found my old ones. Now I have two!)

    Not too heavy, small enough to carry in a purse. I took it to the ballet and had a great close-up view from a back row, but not a wide angle. It is a little hard to adjust, hence four stars instead of five.

    Wanted glasses just to watch birds at backyard feeder. These do the job. Lightweight, easy to focus, compact- good for hiking. but if you want something powerful for long distance, you will have to spend a lot more $.

    not many binoculars to choose from at Best Buy. and only a few left of each of the 2-3 types. I wanted small binocs with a neck strap. Used them to see Paul McCartney concert in St. Louis. They did a good job.

    Wouldn't have bought this at Best Buy if we didn't need it asap. The price is high for such little thing. Nothing spectacular. It works. You get better price else where for similar product.
