  • The Wetland range are high quality waterproof DCF binoculars designed specifically with birdwatching and nature viewing in mind. Rubber armoured and fully waterproof, Wetland binoculars are quite at home in the tough outdoors. High grade BAK4 quality prisms, with multicoated coated lenses for great clarity and colour.
  • The 8x magnification is powerful enough to see detail but not so powerful that image stability, brightness or colour contrast is diminished. The 8x42 combination also provides a good field of view with a very bright image which is beneficial when tracking moving objects.The style of the Wetland range gives the performance of a traditional full size binocular in a more streamlined lighter weight body.
  • BAK4 prisms ensure a brighter image throughout the range of magnifications by maximising light transmission. Efficient use of the light gathered is particularly important at high magnifications or when using smaller front lenses, as images appear darker.
  • Long eye relief makes these binoculars ideal for spectacle wearers the image is projected further through the exit pupil allowing users to view the full field of view glasses on. The eye cups on this model twist down for use when wearing glasses.
  • The quality of this binocular means it is exceptional value even at its usual price. It compares very well with other significantly more expensive binoculars - don't miss out on this bargain.

I would agree with the the three previous reviewers. I recently bought a pair of these 8x42 roof prism binoculars for bird watching at my local nature reserve, and have found them to be of excellent optical quality,giving very clear, crisp and bright images almost to the edges of the lenses. The field of view is reasonably good at 6.3 degrees (330ft at 1000 yards). They are excellent for bird watching, and general use. As the images are so bright you could also use the binoculars for general star gazing. I have quite big hands, but have found these binoculars comfortable to hold, and because the magnification is only 8x, whatever you are looking at remains steady in the field of view. The centre focus wheel is large and just of the right resistance to make focussing smooth and easy. (There is a tiny bit of play in the focus wheel of my pair - but this doesn't concern me too much). As on almost all binoculars, the right eyepiece focuses individually. Again this focus is adjustment wheel (just below the right eyepiece) is large, knurled and just of the right resistance to make focusing easy, but stiff enough to hold the lens at the position you choose. The rubber eyecups can be screwed out to various distances to make viewing comfortable for spectacle wearers. The objective lens covers are easy enough to peel off with one finger, and are held captive to the binocular by a little rubber strip. The eyepiece lens covers are joined in middle by a rubber link, and they can be attached to the binocular strap to prevent you losing them. They are a little stiff to peel off. The binocular strap is thin and not very long, but as the binoculars are fairly light (but heavy enough to make them feel solid and substantial in your hands), the strap doesn't dig into your nexk when carrying them for long periods.Read more ›

Good quality optics, little colour fringing, clear and bright image. Sturdy and well made. Only slight niggle is that the focussing wheel has a large amount of travel to go from close focus to infinity, and this is a personal preference as it makes accurate focusing easier.

Highly durable and practical item. It is both light in weight and ease of handling. This a high precision tool offering quality that is hard to be beaten by items twice the price. Recommended without hesitation.

I have been trying to find some good binoculars that would not blow the bank account. After two very disappointing starts which had to be returned I have found the ones.

We have a cracking view across the valley and love to watch the deer and buzzards from our bedroom windows - these binoculars are perfect for this highly recommended.

Remarkably good value; sturdy, confortable, and apparently weatherproof. The roof prism design works well, and saves bulk and weight

The optics are OK - in fact, very good for the money - but ultimately you get what you pay for. I have some high-end Nikon 8x30 widefield porroprisms which are much brighter, and better all round; but they are not weather-proof, and therefore often get left at home. Whereas I have no fear of taking the Wetlands out with me

The image has a slight yellow cast, in common with many cheaper binoculars

the nex strap is useless - became unravelled almost immediately. I have brought another one (from another manufacturer)

Likewise, the cap for the eyepieces had one of its lugs broken

And the case is more like a washbag (something for carrying a sponge and razor) - also oversized for the binoculars it is supposed to fit

Even so; the binoculars are very good for the price.

They are brought through an Amazon seller - so the return procedure is much less good than if they were a direct sale from Amazon itself
