These binoculars are the most powerful field binoculars you can get for the price. They are sturdy, they are of great quality, and they exceeded my expectations. Overall, I am very impressed with the sheer quality and power of these Perrini binoculars. All in all I give it 5 stars. Especially for the price.
I purchased a pair of these and a pair of the longer version. Both excellent binoculars although I like the convenience of the smaller ones a little more. Very good quality. Easy to use - fortunately haven't had to check out how waterproof they are!
We purchased these for an afterschool program for elementary-aged students, so we wanted them to be sturdy, but not terribly expensive. These absolutely fit the bill. They arrived quickly and were far better than we expected for that price. The magnification is excellent, allowing us to see a great distance, and they seem very sturdy...no small parts or delicate tuning pieces that can be easily broken. The kids have already had them outside several times to enjoy some of the local wildlife and they are holding up well. I'd definitely recommend these!
Pretty nice set of binoculars. Great reach. I didn't expect the tripod fixture. I just don't really get the "Night Vision" marking on them. It wasn't mentioned in the add. If it is Night Vision it's passive. Maybe because they gather light well. Good for looking at the moon too. I haven't gone shooting with them yet, I'm trying to find an adapter to attach them to a tripod. They seem to be ok.
I'm not well versed in the termanology so I will tell it to you strait. I wanted these to get a closer look at the Moon, as well as some stars. I also use them for Bird watching and what not. The Bino's are very powerfull. I have 10x50's and they are perfect for most viewing applications. These really get me close "Real close" to the things that are far away. There is another review on here that states after you zoom you lose some light and that is true. However it was not an issue for me at all. I have zoomed these all the way out to 140x and have NO complaints at all. You also lose some feild of view when you zoom but again for me that is not an issue. They are not as heavy as I thought they might be, but the will need a tripod for when you zoom. I had a cheap tripod that fit the the Bino's built in mount, so it worked out well there. Once you have your triopd you will be able to zoom out like I said but you will need to try and keep the Bino's on the tripod tight so when you start to view you limit as much gittering as possible. In ending this review I will state that they are a bit spendy but the quality is top notch. From the prism's, mirrors lens coating and over all build. When you try anything new you must have an open mind and reasonable expectations. I do recommend these :)
These binoculars were a birthday present for my husband on his 65th birthday. He loves them. We live on a pond so he has the opportunity to check out the wildlife close up! Thanks for providing excellent products. We have always been happy with Overstock!
Unbeatable for the price. I can see into the hardwoods across the street, on the side of the mountain and see things like moose and dear wandering by and bobcats chasing rabbits. The real cool part is that they are anywhere from three to five miles away! Too cool. And the night sky is even more awesome. They are "giant binoculars" so you will want to have them on a tripod or other mount, they are not something that you can hold, looking through for any length of time.
If you are on the beach you will easily be able to see the people on a boat that is on the horizon 7 miles away.
I needed binoculars to monitor the play of my grandson as he moved around an island 1/4 mile across the bay at Orange Beach, Al.
Your customer service is tops and your product is exactly what I wanted!
Just the right size for our cruising & travels to Europe. Excellent optics. We had lost a small pair of binoculars on another cruise, so these are replacing them. Very lightweight, compact. We've used them locally during our visits to the shore. The price was right too.
This binocular is better than advertised! The photo of the binocular makes it look possibly like plastic. It is not. It is a rubber armor-coated deep black.
It is compact and elegant. It is under six inches long and under 5 inches wide.
The statistics state the minimum focusing distance is 30 feet. It is not --mine focused down to only 15 feet --crystal clear! What a pleasant surprise!
The binocular case is perfect for this binocular. Unlike many other binocular cases this one allows you to simply drop the binoculars straight in without having to fold the binoculars closed.
I can use my binoculars with or without eyeglasses. I tested this for both ways. It is better suited for someone without eyeglasses, but can be confidently lent to your friends or spouse with eyeglasses. They can see adequately, but I would not recommend it as primary binocular if you must wear eyeglasses. It is small and light enough to lend to a younger person to view. This is a very versatile pair of binoculars!
I chose the 10X30 size for a day at the beach, seaside, riverside or whatever water-related activity. The 10X feature is better suited to view distant ships or lighthouses. If you want a wider angle for viewing sporting events, or a play, I recommend try the 8X Floatmaster.
I plopped the binoculars in a bucket of water to test its ability to float. I really hesitated doing this ! I never submerged a pair of binoculars in my life. I was delighted to find that it floats! No, it did not leak. It did not float like the image on the website. The large lenses pointed up vertically. This is important to know. When I take it to the river or ocean I shall wrap bright yellow tape around the end so I can ACTUALLY SEE the binoculars if they go into the water. I suspect trying to spot black binoculars in the ocean or river may not be easy.
All in all, I highly recommend these binoculars, either the 8X or 10X may just be the only pair of binoculars you may ever need in any weather!
Love this item! It was very accurately described, reasonable price, and has been durable so far!! I just use them around the farm, for watching birds, cattle in the field, unknown animals on the hillside, etc. I would recommend them as a great value for the price.

Whether you're searching the prairie for a new species of bird, viewing a Mozart opera from a high balcony, or simply playing army with friends, Overstock.com provides a wide range of binoculars made by well-known brands including Bushnell, Leica and Minox. Many of the binoculars enable you to adjust focus to see objects both far and near.

To be ready for any viewing occasion, buy sets that include both a pair of binoculars and a telescope, easily putting both birds and stars into your gaze.
Good for my daughters
My daughter loved these pink binoculars. I bought a couple of them as birthday presents too. They are a hit.
Good for the money.
Just needed a set of cheap binoculars in a hurry and these worked great. These came in quick and was pleased with the optics and ease of adjustability
Great binoculars. Purchased as a gift for Christmas...would be better if the lens caps had attachments to the body. But they glass really well.
Good for the money
I can see really well with these binoculars......serves my needs perfectly.
