Received it today. Seems to be be made of very solid material .Looked out the window and the optics seemed very good . Good magnification , these are 8 x 42 , so good for bird watching / wildlife . A little on the heavier side though ( probably because of the construction , waterproofing )Comes with a black case/bag , a strap , and the lenses have eye cup /lens covers .Took it outside for a quick run, images were very crisp , clean...Attached some pics of the binocular under " customer picture...

After doing the research I bought these and absolutely love them. They are virtually indestructable and the best bang for the buck. I have used plenty of pricier models for birding and find little difference between these and the competition. I am truly delighted with these and even bought a spotting scope from Barska that I am also very pleased with.

These binoculars are a fantastic bargain. They are solid and well made. The lenses are very bright and the focus wheel and main hinge operate smoothly and precisely. I started shopping for a set of binoculars after using a set of Leupold Cascades that were provided by the Marine Corps for the use of students in the Combat Hunter training program. The Leupolds were very impressive and as I shopped for a comparable set of binoculars I found the Barska Blackhawk to a be comparable in almost eve...

I just returned from the Amazon where I took these Barska knowing that I would put their 'waterproof' to the test. After a month of use there was never a problem with moisture. Optically, these binoculars are very good. Other in my group had more expensive binoculars (Nikon, Bushnell etc.) and we passed each other's around. The Barska were as good or better than the others. They are also fairly rugged. They can take a drop. If there is a negative, it is with design for the neck strap and ...

After review of several different brands of binoculars at the local sporting stores, I was very pleased with the quality and price of the Barska Blackhawk. These should last me for many years, yes a bit heavier than other brands but should take the punishment they will go through in the field.

These are NICE
 
My wife wanted a compact design for her binoculars but did not want to sacrifice on optics or quality. After alot of looking around in shops and on the net, I ordered these. She has small hands so adjusting the focus on a pair of standard 7x50's was almost impossible. She tried these out and immediately liked them. The eye relief is just a bit less than the 7x50's but not enough to matter wearing glasses. Great feel due to the rubberized grip. These are not useless mini sized, or ultra-lightweig...

Good Value for the Price
 
I purchased the Barska Blackhawk binocs to use at football games and for hunting. Overall, they are good value for the price.Pluses:The focus knob is large and can be easily adjusted while wearing glovesReasonably sharp opticsMinuses4 individual lens caps that can be easily lost or misplacedI haven't had a chance to try them yet in really low light or driving rain so YMMV.

lemon?
 
i received these binoculars right on time but when i tried to use them i found a split in the water proof seam at the center focus, i was unable to turn the center focus wheel unless i kept them wide open, my eyes also could not fit the lenses, i decided to return them and amazon was awesome! i ordered a pair of bushnell with fully multi coated optics,porro prism, bak4, water proof and amazing eye relief for a little bit more money i was very, very happy (FULLY MULTI COATED makes a huge differen...

Yikes! 20 feet close focus
 
OK ... sorry for the 3 stars, but I just wanted to point out that these binoculars have a whopping 20 feet close focus distance. That's about the worst I've seen. For example, the Eagle Optics Denali 8x42 Roof Prism Binocular have a close focus of 7 feet. People new to binoculars often don't think about close focus, but it's highly desirable. For example, one may be looking at a bird in bush or tree and step closer to get a better look. At 20 feet, you may have to actually step back. Also,...

You get what you pay for
 
I bought these because they had long eye relief for a girl friend with glasses to use, and because they were cheap. It is difficult to get the right eye adjusted, because the adjustment ring is very hard to turn. The focus is very slow-you have to turn the knob a lot to focus a little. They won't focus very close, and the field of view is very narrow. I didn't realize how poor they were until I compared them to a pair of Bushnell 8x40 porro prism binoculars of the same cost. Despite having la...
