Perfect for my use


I bought these for hunting so I can see across canyon without being blinded by using inferior optics. You can go cheap and you can go expensive. I have not been sorry I got these. I use a bino harness and added split rings to have enough room to mount a strap. The lens covers got traded for another type, but that's not enought to give them a demerit
