Difficult to adjust for precise focus. I have to do adjustment on right eyepiece for my vision. Even Then, they don't keep focus over full range without readjusting the right eyepiece again for near or far. Even then, that adjustment is poor due to the loose tolerance in focus mechanism.

    Comments about West Marine Lake Champlain 10 x 42 Waterproof Binoculars:

    We have been looking for a smaller easier to adjust pair of binoculars for a long time. Every pair we tried
    did not meet our expectations. Unfortunately the ones we were comparing all against cost over one thousand dollars. While in Annapolis I usually stop and check out what the local West Marine has to offer and saw the pair I ended up buying. Unfortunately I didn't tell my wife about them until we got back to Ohio,
    consequently we had to drive to Sandusky to purchase them...incidently they did not cost anywhere near
    the pair I had been com pairing them to and we're just as good.

        Comments about West Marine Lake Champlain 10 x 42 Waterproof Binoculars:

        I was looking for compact binoculars for my trip to Costa Rica. After comparing many high end sets, I felt that the 10x42 optics and compact design of the Lake Champlain were perfect my trip. They were great for my boat exploration of Playa Zancudo and the Corcovada. The waterproof and compact Lake Champlain worked well for my rain forest exploration and my coastal fishing trip.
