I bought these binoculars for my 8 year old son about 6 months ago. They have proven their durability and quality. They keep water out so I don't have to be worried about them getting ruined, and they are a nice size so they fit right in my camera bag. I would reccomend this item highly to anyone who wants a basic binocular for their kids or even for themselves to take with them on a boat or hiking on gorge trails etc.

I was looking for a pair of 10X25 binoculars to take along on a late July cruise to Alaska. After reading the reviews, I opted to try these Barska binoculars. Great value for the price, and waterproof as well. These turned out to be just what I needed. My only complaint...no lense covers.

My husband and I bought these binoculars for our cruise to Glacier Bay Alaska. They traveled very well, were light weight and worked great!! Our friends wound up borrowing them on a couple occasions.

Good pair waterproof, fogproof, inexpensive binoculars. Focus controls work well, bringing images into sharp relief at all distances. No blurring or double vision problems. Minus 1 star, though, for somewhat unforgiving eye relief. You quickly get darkness around the edges of your visual area if your eyes are not EXACTLY the right distance from the lenses.

I don't understand the negative reviews others have given this product! They are solid, well-made binoculars with good lenses. They are hefty without being too heavy, the grip feels good in the hand, the focus ring works well, and they seem to be well made. Yes, the "neckstrap" is just a string, but So What? They are the perfect size to put in a purse or a backpack and the focus is much sharper than I expected.

To the person who mentioned that the binoculars "Doesn't appear to have a left eye adjustment"...you obviously don't know how to use the diopter on binoculars: Close your RIGHT eye, while looking through your left eye, adjust the focus as you would normally . Then, close your LEFT eye and DO NOT ADJUST THE FOCUS. There is an adjustment ring around the viewfinder for the RIGHT EYE. With your left eye closed, look with your right and use the diopter to adjust the focus. Then, when you open BOTH eyes, the focus is perfectly adjusted. Since everyone's eyes are different, each user will have to adjust them for their own use. But that is standard with all binoculars, no matter what the price. I think the focus and the clarity are great for a $25 product! I'm very happy with them.

Our 5-year old grandson has been asking for REAL binoculars since his older sister received them a couple of years ago. He wasn't satisfied with the "kids" ones, even though they were very nice. Since he is "all boy" so to speak, and they spend a lot of time on the beach, we felt this waterproof product would be excellent for him. His parents are very pleased and he spent Christmas Day trying to see into the windows of all our neighbors! He can't wait to look for ships on the Great Lakes this coming summer. Magnification is excellent, and there is no shake when viewing - which will be great for a little boy. He has added them to his "adventure bag" which also contains his waterproof flashlight and his grabber tool!

I wanted compact binoculars for hiking as my full size 10x50 were too big.
After researching this stuck me as having the right balance between features and price.
I have not tested water and fog proofness but if it fails I will update this review.
The rubberized texture is very nice, the image is very good.
It feels solid but not heavy (although not as light as those brittle plastic no name binoculars you can find everywhere).
This binoculars are definitively worth it.

I ordered this binocular for an upcoming trip. I received it promptly but was very disappointed. The two sides of the binocular did not align correctly. The right side was pointed above the left. I could focus the two sides but they were not "looking" the same place. Maybe I got the rare lemon, but I was afraid to get another pair and will reorder another Pentax zoom which I received at the same time and seemed very satisfactory.

I actually bought these for my 4 year old grandson. He has watched my husband use his expensive binoculars and always wanted to use them. I wanted to buy him some that he wouldn't outgrow and that weren't just a toy. These are great and are even borrowed by his father who usually forgets his.

This one does not pass muster. Like other reviewers I could not get the picture to either focus or the two images to come together. I have other binocs so it isn't me. In fact, we purchased the little pink Barska binocs for our granddaughter and they are fine. These are inexpensive, but binoculars are a single purpose device, so if they can't do the one thing that they were built to do then they are pretty useless. A little quality control and post manufacturing inspection would help.
