    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.

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

                  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.
