Rated 4 out of 5 by beginner Good choice
I am enjoying my binoculars. For a beginner bird and game watcher it is just the thing. I am having a lot of fun. I made a good choice with Discovery Binoculars.

I was planning to buy these cool looking, colorfull binoculars as gifts for several nieces and started by getting one pair to check them out. The pair I received had a double image... very disappointing. I do not know if it was a problem in manufacturing or if it was because they were not well enough wrapped for shipping. The product box was very loose in the larger brown shipping box and so slid back and forth easily, which could have damaged them in shipping. Either way, I do not want to risk sending as gifts.

I wanted something small and lighweight to keep on the backporch or take hiking. These are perfect to view wildlife on my property. The magnification is sharp. Just what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy4ever Wonderful product is everything promised and more.
I have shoppedLLBean for over 40 years. I have never once been disappointed I have clothes I have worn and torn for years and just can't throw them out. Quality, integrity and a lifetime guarantee to the original owner. Unheard of in today's world. What more can anyone ask?

I received these about a week ago so have not had a lot of time to use them, but did some wildlife watching this weekend. They are very compact (which I wanted) and very light (which I also wanted). They are comfortable to hold, with great, soft grips. Even in the case, they take up very little room on the front seat of the truck and are never in the way.
I wear glasses and they are easy to use with them, but, to my amazement, I am able to use them without my glasses and see sharp, clear images! And I wear trifocals!! I will get a lot of great, long use out of these.
Keep in mind, these are not 10 x 50's, and if that's what you're looking for, you might not like these ... but the 8 x 25's are perfect for what I wanted: comfortable, lightweight, versatile binoculars, at a fantastic price, that are easily carried on walks and short hikes!
I love them.

Got these binoculars for an upcoming trip to Alaska. Plan to use them specifically for wildlife and scenic viewing. "Test Drove" them in the back yard to view birds and also took them along on the golf course the other day for more distance viewing. I believe they are exactly what I was looking for.
I had read some reviews that said they were small enough to fit in your shirt pocket and that comment almost scared me off. They are compact and will fit in my backpack perfectly but I don't have any shirt pockets big enough to accommodate them :)
They probably wouldn't be suitable for hunting game long distance but for my purpose I am looking forward (no pun intended) to viewing whales, moose, eagles and hopefully some bears in Alaska.
I don't see how you can beat the price and free shipping.
By the way the grand kids loved them also and will probably end up with them at some point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barkndog Great field of vision
Forgot my binoculars on a trip from Georgia to Acadia and stopped at LL Bean in Freeport. Used them kayaking, hiking and biking all week. They are very lightweight and you don't even notice them hanging on your neck. Small, lightweight nylon case went in my pack and bike bag and took up very little space. Extremely easy to focus and the best thing is the field of vision is one view, not like so many compact binoculars that wind up with two images. Water resistant - I didn't submerge them but was in the rain and got the typical splashing in the kayak. The colored padding has a very comfortable grip/feel. The colors offered are a little bright for me so I got black. All in all a great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by goneskiing727 Lightweight, comfortable and perfect for our needs
Discovery Binoculars were a perfect match to our needs. We frequently travel and sight see as well as take many eco/sanctuary hikes around Florida for bird watching. The quality and comfort are excellent, and focuses perfectly clear at many different ranges. I placed my order the following Monday, living in Florida I thought it may take more time. Great customer service as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Triplelock Light and handy, and the price was right!
My Discovery 8x25 binoculars arrived the day before I left for a shooting trip in New Mexico. I used them as a spotting scope at the target range, and they were perfect for the task, with a clear picture and easy adjustments. Best of all, they weigh very little and take up far less room in my kit than a conventional spotting scope. I chose the bright orange color, because if camo items get lost in the woods, they stay lost!
