Expensive looking junk


from Kennewick, WA  -  Casual/ Recreational

Looks expensive. Feels expensive. Look through it and you might as well be looking through two coke bottle bottoms.


Nice & clear with or without glasses


from Baton Rouge, LA  -  Avid Adventurer

Wish it came with with a tripod adapter, but didn't. Accessories were nice - an enjoyable purchase

Bushnell 10x42


from Wilmington, NC  -  Casual/ Recreational

* Easy to focus and adjust. The glass is very sharp. I would recommend to anybody that need great binoculars at a price that won't break the bank


I Can See Clearly Now


from Baltimore, MD  -  Casual/ Recreational

Needed to have something that was lightweight and compact to use when birding. Since we are near the water a lot, also wanted something that was water proof and fog proof. The Bushnell 10x42 H2O fit the job. Can't wait to get a second pair.

STEPHEN F  try closing one eye and adjust the adjuster located around the eye cup. Then bend at the center equally with both your right and left hand, in or out to focus at the distance desired. Hope that helps!
