Pros:
waterproof
lightweight
comfortable to use
easy focus
great light gathering for use in low light
level of visual aberrations good for this price point

Cons:
Design makes it impossible to adjust to narrow set eyes. There is no way these can be adjusted for a child to use. Yes, they are large for a child anyway, but you tell me what child doesn't want to look at exactly what you just said "OOOoo" about?

I really like the features of these binoculars. They are very lightweight for their size (thanks to the roof prism). The rubber coating is nice and soft and should provide some impact protection as well as making them comfortable to hold. The focus knob is very smooth and easy to reach.
I really don't like the tube spacing. I have narrow set eyes and these simply do not adjust far enough in for me to look through both tubes at the same time. I used them for a night of stargazing and was forced to keep one eye closed and use them like you would a monocular or telescope. The problem is that the objective ends touch before the eyepieces are very close together. There is nothing that could be done about this besides using smaller diameter objective lenses. I'll have to return them which is too bad because they are great otherwise.

These binoculars is just what I was looking for. Initially I had concern that 12 magnification would create too much image shake, but it appeared to be no problem at all. It is definitely not Swarovski. The chromatic aberration is very noticedable. The purple fringing starts about 1/3 from the optical axis. Also I had an impression that the very far away objects are less clear than the objects at few miles distance, but that could be the impact of the air pollution. Nevertheless the image is very clear and sufficiently bright.
Mechanically it is very well made. The only concern I have is that after carrying it on the sun for some time the rubber coating detaches from the base in one place. You can feel it by pressing in that place and the rubber gives is and produces a clicking sound as there is a large air bubble under it. Kind of annoying but does not interfere with anything. Nice touch is rubber caps that are attached to the binoculars so you will not loose them, It is not on the photo.
With all the negatives I described it is very difficult to find something better ever comparable in this price range so I would definitely recommend it.

I purchased these in the recent gold box special on Amazon for $49 and perhaps expected too much, but they are not nearly as good as I had hoped. I own three other pairs of binoculars to compare these to, including a decent pair of 12x50 porro prism Nikon Action 12x50 EX Extreme ATB Binocular that I bought for $145. Since the non-discounted price on these Simmons was in that range I was hoping these would be similar quality. Unfortunately they are quite a bit lesser quality.

The reason I bought the Simmons was to get the waterproof, fog proof design because the smaller 8x40 pair my wife uses are not waterproof (hers are the botton level Nikons Nikon 7216 Action 8x40mm Binoculars we bought for $60. Also, I have never owned the roof prism design but have used and liked them in the past. The third pair I own is the super cheap ruby coated type like these BINOCULARS LG 10X50 RUBY LENSE CARRYCASE for which I paid $8 at the local hardware store. I keep those in my car.

Pros: the roof prism design is more compact and lighter weight than my porro 12x50. These actually fit in the case that came with our Nikon 8x40 binoculars. These also appear to have fairly sturdy construction, and the objective lens covers that attach to the barrel are superior to the Nikon lens covers.

Negatives: the biggest problem is that these lack sharpness and the image gets softer quickly as you move from the center of the lens.

I bought these binoculars to use when shooting since I hate walking downrange after each group when I zero-in sights. As a poor-man's spotting scope it works fine. I wear glasses and getting proper eye relief is tricky but not impossible. These won't correct for poor vision so wear glasses or contact lenses with these. I originally looked at cheaper binos but the quality was far from what I wanted. I don't use these a lot but I do want them to last a while. I sprung for these since they were the cheapest ones I could find that had the magnification I wanted and were also waterproof/fogproof. Simmons is owned by Bushnell so don't expect these to made in America or be of outstanding quality. You do get what you pay for.

Paid a decent price for the binoculars but the biggest drawback is the focusing is not smooth and precise (in fact, it is difficult) and clarity/contrast is slightly lacking. They are also quite heavy. I do like that they are waterproof, although don't ever intend to expose them to moisture.

EDIT: 01/10/13
I requested a replacement from Amazon and, as always, their customer service was very good and received a second pair. The focusing on this pair is more smooth. The optics seem not quite as sharp as some of my other binoculars, but this pair is slightly more powerful perhaps causing some perceived distortion.
