Oakham, Rutland GB
They LOOK great. They FEEL great. They seem very robust and their low price is ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE. I can compare them directly with my still good forty years old 8x40's I bought from a well known retailer in the 1980's - great for all aspects of binocular vision. Great for general use, and fairly light to handle, plus excellent rugged grip and easy to focus or adjust to eyesight, and quite good comfort to the eyes. Highly recommend.
I don't like the neck strap it comes with very much..... It's fiddly with bits of spare strap sticking out all over the place. Unlike the plain single-width narrow straps of say forty years ago, this one has an extra-width soft spongy section for neck comfort, but I prefer the simpler old style straps and will take the simple strap off my old now knackered bino's. But still FABULOUS value.
