My buddy comapared my Alpen ridge glass to a pair of High end Bushnell's he had. (His cost double what my Alpens cost). In his opinion the Alpens were just a bit better than his.
I can vouch to the clear, bright view, light weight and ease of focus. Perfect gift for a young person-and used by him daily! He is very happy with his Alpens!
I bought these to hunt, watch birds, and take to baseball games, and I couldn't be more pleased. Just got back from Spring Training in Mesa, AZ, and they enhanced my experience hugely. I'm not an optics expert, but I have good vision, and these things have beyond sufficient clarity, even in low-light conditions. The fit and finish is great, the rubberized coating feels great in my hands, the camo pattern looks awesome, their weight is competitive for the price class, and the warranty guarantees free lifetime repair or replacement of the original binoculars for defect or damage of any kind if you return them (so, not if you lose them)--all for $50 less than the competition.
There are higher-clarity 10X42's on the market, but not for anywhere near this price, and frankly, if I miss any animals with them, it will be my fault, not the binoculars'.
This second pair is a dreamy spare to carry at all times. Very compact, great eye relief (16mm) for glasses wearers for the low price compact binocs category - hard to find in the price category. They are surprisingly bright for such a small roof prism pair. The focus is also sharp for the price point. These are not Leicas, but they are enjoyable for a worry-free set. I use mid-price with a larger field of view (Pentax 10x42) for 'serious' birding.
I got them for a good bit cheaper (under $100) and there were already a few other reviews, so apparently they have been freshly posted and priced. But even at the current price, I think they are a great option for no-worry pocket binocs for the pro, or beginner ones for those who feel a larger pair would inhibit their taking them along. Certainly great for sports. (Word of advice for beginners: if you are just starting out birding, you would be served better by a larger field of view such as 8x42 until you learn to aim and find small birds in natural environments.)

I got these when they were on sale briefly for $99, which is a very good price for better quality binoculars. Read morePublished 1 month ago by MarienneLibrarian

Amazing binos for the money. I have had others in the price range (vortex/nikon) but they do not comparePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
5.8mm exit pupil of the 8.5x50 is intermediate between 7x50 (7.1mm) and 10x50 (5mm) - a suitable compromise between maximum light gathering power and greater magnification. Read morePublished 6 months ago by surfcity

Sexy, georgeous pair of bincs. The feel in the hand is as good as any I have tried including Steiner, Swarovski, Nikon, Bushnell, Vortek etc. The focus is precise and right. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Amaz Onkid
Optics are very good at this price point. They are a bit heavier than I expected and on the large side of "compact", way too big for a cargo pocket on pants/shorts. Read morePublished 8 months ago by R. A. Stephenson
