comfortable to use
great light gathering for use in low light
level of visual aberrations good for this price point
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.
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 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.
