I have always had binoculars. But I can safely say that I have never had a pair this sharp at anywhere near the price. They snap into focus and the image is sharp as a tack. The ergonomics are very good they fit my hands and the control is right where you expect it to be. The controls are silky smooth making focus and diopter adjustment quite precise.
The rear lens caps slip onto the neck strap where they are reasonably secure. Unfortunately Nikon couldn't come up with as good an answer for the front lens caps. They have small loop with an opening so you can clip them onto the neck strap. Not very secure. More likely they will go in my pocket. Good luck finding a replacement, Google couldn't.
The nicely padded soft case does not come with a strap. It hangs from the binocular strap when they are in the case. I still haven't come up with a good solution on what to do with it in the field. However the strap on the binoculars is nice and wide 1 1/4"
