Great binoculars, horrible strap,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nikon 8220 Trailblazer 8x42 ATB Binoculars (Electronics)
I got these binoculars for whale watching and the optics are really nice. Very bright compared to my Pentax binoculars. Because of the size, they are also easier to keep steady than my smaller Pentax binoculars.
The major issue that I have is the strap. The strap came undone and my binoculars hit the ground! Luckily they are armored and the only thing that got scuffed up was the plastic eye cover. I couldn't get the strap to stay attached to the binoculars by themselves. I eventually had to wrap scotch tape around the straps (the only tape I had access to) in order to keep the strap from sliding free of the plastic clip.
Lastly, the binoculars are olive green and not black as pictured.
