This review is from: Nikon 10x42 Prostaff 7 Binocular (Black) (Camera)
I read most of the other reviews about this product and I am extremely satisfied with them. The range of sight is very good, very easy to see out of them.
They do come with a nice carrying case, as well as a very nice neck strap. I was going to order the chest holder for the binoculars but this neck strap is thick enough to work well.
There was a complaint or two about the lens caps coming off too easily. The outer lens caps fit securely and the ones closest to the eye come off very easily - BUT - they are also supposed to be attached to the neck strap. To me this is a very handy feature.
The binoculars are adjusted very easily with each side adjusting separately, then the middle adjustment for fine tuning.
I was trying to decide between these or the Trailblazers. The Trailblazers are a bit larger and since I'm a woman, these were heavy and big enough! There was a trade off in the features but I am not a very experienced binocular user so I figured that I really wouldn't know the difference there.
Bottom line - I can't see a person not being satisfied with these! They even have a nonslip coating on them which is going to be so handy. I figure these will last me a lifetime. Really like them!

The trailblazers are smaller and lighter. That's why I still can't decide between them. I want the binoculars for birdwatching and I don't want them to be too heavy for me.
