I ordered 3 binoculars Bushnell Powerview 8x21, Tasco Essentials 10x25 and Barska Blueline 3x25 opera glass. After comparing them during day and night. I decided to keep Tasco and return the other two. I think the 25 view glass make a difference for the light to get in the right way comparing with the 21. Both the Tasco and Barska are very clear without light interference. Barska is very cute and elegant. It is great for ladies who also like some fashion when going to opera. But the 3x limited its power. I wanted something that can see the bowing of violinist when go to concert and sit in the back row. Neither the Bushnell nor the Barska fold all the way. They create bridges. So they are not super compact. Barska comes with a cheap pouch looks like leather but not. Both Bushnell and Tasco come with nice fabric cases which can be attached to belt. The Tasco can be fold all the way to be super compact and not easy to break by accident as the other two have gap between the tubes. The Size is a little bigger than the other two just because it is 10x and the tubes have to be a little longer to create the power. Both my kids are loving it. We tried to look at the moon tonight. It is unbelievably clear and beautiful. Barska was still clear but small. The Bushnell just could not provide a good image and there are some polarized lights look like cross going through the moon. I am going to order more of the Tasco Essentials 10x25.

For the price, it's difficult to find fault with these binoculars. Tasco is evidently trying hard to make a high-value product (not just a toy) at an extremely competitive price. They are light, small, reasonably solid, and for the price I never worry about taking them into situations where they might get a little wet or a little mechanical abuse (e.g., bumps or scrapes).

So these would be a great choice for occasional or emergency use (e.g., to throw in a glove compartment or emergency bag, or to take hiking or backpacking), when having a small, lightweight, relatively high-power set of binoculars would be beneficial.

If you'll be using these for extended periods of time, I would encourage you to keep looking. The eye relief isn't great, so if you wear glasses you won't be able to see the full field of view. Also, and it could just be my pair, mine do not focus very sharply (spherical aberration?), especially at larger distances.

Also, be aware that these are probably best for active outdoors activities (hiking, hunting, etc.) in bright light -- if you can put up with the extra weight and cost, you might be better served by a pair with larger effective aperture and corresponding exit pupil (e.g., 10x42 or even 10x50) for pursuits like astronomy or (more sedentary) birding. This is not a criticism of these binoculars; they are designed to be 10x25, so the only thing I might complain about is the transmission of the AR coating, but that's simply not fair at this price point.

If you do get a pair, do some thorough field testing as soon as you get them, and return them if they don't suit your expectations.

Three stars may be too tough on these, but they're just not good enough optically to warrant more. Still, especially given their price, they're a whole lot better than nothing in a pinch.

Good disposable emergency travel binoculars

I bought these binoculars to leave in my SUV as an emergency backup when I forget my excellent Nikon 7216 Action 8 X 40 Binoculars. They are much lighter and smaller and I can leave in my map holder on the door or even in my pocket and forget I even have them which leaves the old saying binoculars are only good if you have them with you. And that's where these binoculars shine they are very tiny and very light.

They do bring things in close and after a little bit of focusing and adjusting width you can make things out if you have plenty of light. The little case they come with is pretty decent as well.

Now for the bad parts. The eye relief is pretty bad, you will have to prop your eye glasses above them and or remove them to use. Also they are pretty dim which of course a lot of cheaper 10x25 binoculars are. The strap is a small little string that does the job but is pretty thin. But hey for the price go ahead and purchase a couple one for your coat pocket and one for your vehicle oh and maybe one for your camera bag.

These would be a great pair to have children learn on as if they drop or abuse them its no big deal.


Nice case
Super small size
Super light weight
Disposable price tag
Great learning binocular to hand to small children


So so focusing
Just Ok low light ability
Just Ok optics
Not water tight or resistant


Purchase as disposable emergency travel binoculars and or as a toy for children to learn birding with and no more.

Color: Black
I bought these binoculars from Dick's Sporting Goods about eight years ago, without the "Essentials" tag. They're the same optics, but the newer models (the item in this product specification) have a different pattern on the rubber armoring. That's it. Build quality is the same, as is every other feature except the carrying case.

I'll say that I think 10X is too high of a magnification for untrained optic users. It causes too much shake with every breath, and gripping the binoculars tighter (as many people do) to steady them only make it worse. The neck cord on this model is too flimsy to be useful for steadying. Now, I can use them just fine, but I'm not an "untrained user". Other than the magnification, they're a great pair of binoculars. They're very clear, and durability is very nice. I've dropped mine in mud, in snow, and off a seven-foot-high rock quarry wall once. Apart from a small crack in the rubber armoring (which was easily put back together with electrical tape) they appear new.

The binoculars come with instructions, a lens cleaning cloth, and a fabric carrying case with belt loop. The case is low-quality, but it does the job of keeping the binos clean until you're ready to use them. It closes with a Velcro strip. The whole thing comes in a nice box, ready to wrap up if this is a gift. I'd recommend the 8X21 Essentials model if you're looking for inexpensive binoculars. They're sold here on Amazon for about $12.

Note: If you have a Harbor Freight in your area, they sell these binoculars for $14.99 under their "Gordon" brand. The binoculars are made in the same factory as the Tascos, and the only change is the addition of the Tasco name on the binoculars; the Gordon version isn't branded, and the markings are in a slightly different font. Same factory, same specs.
