Full-size binoculars can be too large for many people, especially younger users. Leupold® BX-1 Yosemite® binoculars not only fit smaller hands, but also adjust to fit the smaller interpupillary distance (the distance between the eyes) of smaller users something most full-size optics can't do.
With both 6x and 8x models available, everyone from the youthful user to experienced adults can enjoy the optical performance that serious users demand. Protected by the Leupold Limited Lifetime Warranty.
THIS IS A PRESENT FOR MY WIFE. IT IS SMALL IN HAND & FEELS RIGHT IN USE ! LARGE EXIT PUPILS,WIDE FIELD,LIGHT--STRONG CONSTRUCTION,CLEAR & SHARP VIEW ! AT THIS PRICE OR ANYWHERE NEAR IT, IT DOES NOT GET BETTER THAN THIS ! I HAVE BOUGHT(2)6 X 30 YOSEMITE'S & RECOMMEND BOTH OF THESE YOSEMITE BINOCULARS & ADORAMA ! ! ! CON: COULD USE BETTER EYEPEICE & FRONT OBJECTIVE COVERS THAT CAN BE ATTACHED SNUGLEY OR REMOVED WITHOUT CUTTING, AS PER INDIVIDUAL'S DESIRE. NOT A BIG DEAL !
My first pair of quality glasses, will never go back. Use them for spotting snapping turtles and cottonmouths on the pond to shoot.
For the price, I cannot imagine a better pair of binoculars. The lightweight frames make these perfect for packing through the woods and the Leupold glass is reliably clear at almost any distance. Unless you happen to be somewhat abnormal, you will be amazed with these. I paired them with the Leupold harness which is also very nice. So far, I have been able to use them in the woods at a 3d archery shoot and to check on the cattle. I truly feel like you can't go wrong with these for the money. Interestingly, the inside of the rubber covering is marked "China 1101384." I have not found any indication that these are not the #67740's advertised, but found it strange that the only indication of that model number was found in a sticker attached to the plastic packaging by the retailer. They work as advertised, come with a case and a really nice neoprene strap. I am very happy with this purchase.
The free shipping was quick. The order was placed on Sunday and arrived in Wisconsin on Friday. The construction and ergonomics are excellent. It has attached diopter lens caps that seal well and are attached to the body, the eye lens cap was removable so I added some thread to attach it to the body at the strap. I also liked that they were compact and light. I bought the binoculars for boating on Lake Superior. They worked great, especially at night when they gather light. They were a real asset navigating on a moonless night with cloud cover in the St. Louis Bay. The 6X-8X power is what the Coast Guard recommends.
I wanted a pair of 8x (lower power) binoculars to take out on lake Superior for boating and kayaking. I looked at the lower end products, treating them as a throwaway in case they got wet or trashed. I looked at similar priced products. Leupold has a good reputation. My hope is if they stamp water proof on something, it will be. I like the rubber lens caps, and the light weight compact size (they will be carried in my life jacket pocket, so size, weight, and waterproofness where the priority). I will update the review, after a few months of use. Ordering through Adorama was easy, and the free shipping to the Midwest (WI) took 5 days, I ordered them on Sunday night and they arrived Friday morning.
