the binoculars were a gift. My sister loves them. Good bright optical, light-weight, well made, nice size to stick in bag, or purse, or the pocket on the seat of car. I'm thinking of getting a pair for myself for the car.
I chose these for African safari because of their light weight. They were easy to adjust and gave me a good view. Not a great view, but good enough for my needs.
"Lightweight" is an illusive term. Since they are to float, I thought they would truly be lightweight. They're not. Makes a difference when you are packing for a week on a boat. They did work fine for our needs but might not always get packed along.
We haven't accidentally dropped them in the water yet but we've used them while kayaking and the water splashed on them and they were fine. They are great for bird watching and checking out the scenery on the lake. We are very happy with our purchase and the price was very reasonable!
