This was purchased as a gift for a Red Sox fan. Needless to say the binoculars have been to every home game since April. They are easy to operate, the clarity is excellent, and if wearing glasses, there is no problem with scratching.The binoculars are light, fit in your pocket. A great deal!

The Outback RC1 binocular was purchased for a recent trip to Alaska, where I cared not to carry heavier Nikon's I own. The RC1 is lightweight, but not cheap looking. In fact, they are quite attractive and sturdy. These binoculars easily fit in a jacket pocket when in the closed position. Optics are very clear, crisp (light capture is outstanding) and lack any noticeable peripheral distortion. The adjustable right eyepiece was perfect for correcting a vision issue I must deal with and eye relief ...

This product is everything its claimed to be; light weight, compact, clear image, adapts to eyeglasses easily. The small size allows me to pack them in a corner of my camera bag. After trying out my pair, my neighbors are buying multiple units, some for themselves and others for gifts. A typical Olympus product; superior optics and light weight with low price as a bonus.

I got these to help me see detail in the model while portrait painting. I also considered butterfly-watching binoculars and opera glasses (La Scala Aida 3x25), but settled on these for the following reasons:First, all the butterfly-watching binoculars that I could find reviews for were at least three times more expensive, out of my price range. They were also bigger and heavier.Close focus distance on the Olympus is 7 feet. I'm usually sitting somewhere between 5 and 10 feet from the model. Oper...

These binoculars are the best I've ever owned, the view is cristal clear and focusing is easy to operate. I like the way the strap is engineered to go through the pouch. This item is so small that it fits into a pocket or pocketbook. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the outdoors or even in concert hall. You can see features and details that other binoculars would miss and it is so light, less than a pound.

We bought two pairs of these binoculars for a trip to Costa Rica, wanting something lighter than our beautiful but heavy Zeiss bins. When they came, one was defective - one side didn't focus - so we had to replace that just before departure. In use we found them lightweight, easy to use and the optics are quite OK for such cheap binoculars. I like the close focus and their pocketability. The right-eye diopter adjustment is quite loose so you need to tape it in place.Main problem is, in CR it rai...

I ordered these binoculars for birdwatching with my 5 year old grandson and they are a perfect size for both of us and very light weight. They are easy to adjust and just what I was looking for so we could use them together. These were recommended by Consumer Reports as a Best Buy and they had compared them to other more expensive models - so I was really pleased that they were very affordable.

I would in no way consider myself a binocular enthusiast. I was going on a trip to Daytona International Speedway and wanted an inexpensive, small, yet effective set to use while I was there.I did a little research and thought that for what I was looking for, and the price I had alloted for this, I would try these binoculars.Overall I've been pretty happy with them and would recommend them to any novice or someone that's possibly looking for a pair to get their child as an introduction into bird...

I researched these binoculars extensively but could not find them at any local stores before purchasing. Relying largely on the Consumer Reports glowing review I went ahead and bought them. Electronics Expo shipped them promptly.However at the Penn Relays Carnival I was very disappointed with their overall performance. Runners went in and out of focus quickly requiring multiple adjustments. I know how to set up the lenses and was disturbed by the distraction. They are technically sound and do ...

This model was rated a best buy by Consumer Reports in both of their last two reviews. I don't have them, but will give them 5 stars to offset the review by the person who didn't like whatever store he got them from.
