In Florida the environment for optics is harsh and the sealed optics for these binoculars is a plus. I use them a lot in the field for astronomy and for general use and I keep them in the truck for whatever. Well recommended for the budget conscious and well recommended for those who want a quality image that doesn't fatigue the eyes.

Broke twice

Second pair...... first pair the right barrel snapped off under VERY light and NORMAL usage. Returned to WM and made noise, and they semi-reluctantly replaced it as it was a gift...Read complete review

Second pair...... first pair the right barrel snapped off under VERY light and NORMAL usage. Returned to WM and made noise, and they semi-reluctantly replaced it as it was a gift without a dated receipt (got at Xmas, used in July, broke). Used perhaps 6 times, this year took them out of their case and they were broken again. Clearly a design flaw. Very dissatisfied.

      I use these Binoculars to view dolphins in the ocean from my 17th Floor condo. They are extremely clear with great range. They are also reasonable in price. I would definitely recommend these.
