Rated 5 out of 5 by mollie17 True to catalog description
This was just what I needed to get a good look at the birds hovering around my bird feeders. True to catalog description and easy to use. Especially appreciate the light weight and easy storage. Perfect for a 'new' birder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by QualityonaBudget Basic Binoculars
Bought two for our trip to Alaska this summer. They were good. Perfect for my 10 yr. old, size-wise and weight; too small for an adult. Not bulky but again too small for me. Did see wildlife at a certain distance. Overall they were good for the quality, size and price. Perfect for children, not so for adults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlaskaDad Highly recommended: Better than you think
I've been a long time LL Bean customer, and this is the first time I bothered to review. I purchased two of thse binoculars for my sons, just starting out in Boy Scouts. I've owned quite a few binoculars in the past, preferring the smaller "pocket sized" versions.
I was astonished at the clarity of these binoculars. I was expecting the generic "cheesy" type I've always stumbled across in other online sites or camping stores. They gather in quite a bit light, and the focus is amazing. Did I get a mutant pair? I don't think so...I have twins and both binoculars were superb.
Don't pay $100 extra on up for inferior binoculars. Get these. And for the price, get an extra pair or two (one for the car).
Question for LL Bean...can you get these in bigger sizes??

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mimithebirder Birding with the grand kids
We love the outdoors and birding. So I bought these for my 2 grandsons 7 & 9 to introduce them to birding. These are great binoculars for children and the price. Well made, sturdy, 4 colors: some fun colors for kids and black for us boring adults. So each has their favorite color and knows which binocs are theirs. The viewing quality is very good for such inexpensive binocs. In fact I liked these so much I bought 2 pairs in black for our cars after using them with my grand kids . A friend who is an expert birder and doing it for 60 years (started when she was 6) is also buying them for her cars. THAT is a great recommendation coming from her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bayberryjoy Light, sturdy, and powerful
I bought these binoculars specifically because I'm learning "to bird" and they're a terrific investment. They fit comfortably in your hand, are nice and light, and certainly plenty powerful for a beginner. They lived in my car all through an extremely cold winter, and emerged in perfect shape for the spring. My first time out I watched a bald eagle with them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mythreesons Great product for the price!
These binoculars were a gift for my 10 yr old son. They far exceeded my expectations for the price. We had previously bought and returned other binoculars that had the same specs. These were abundantly clearer and you the magnification was much better.

These things are Cheap!! Made of plastic, from where else? China.
This item should be listed in the Kids Section for a fraction of the price.
