Was looking for a small pair of Porro binoculars (I'm small) that I could keep in my truck console and not worry if they were stolen.
A family member had a high value object in Phoenix stolen from his truck.
Found Leopold 8x30 Porro that are discontinued, but available. Looked at Kowa and several other brands.
Saw a you tube review, optics rated 5, but eyecups rated 2.
Thought, maybe they had a bad pair, but bought a number of Leopold products over the years and the thing that swayed me was their Gold Ring Warranty, which no one is better.
Used the warranty one time, no hassle.
So bought the subject Binoculars and am highly impressed for the money!!
Images and color are razor sharp, comfortable to use.
These are not astro's, but had transparent sky lately and the Pleiades were very impressive in this tiny binocular (took out bigger ones and due to the sky conditions, remembered why I love two eyes).
Well, my two cents, hope it helps someone!
