This review is from: VANGUARD Spirit ED 8420 Binoculars (Electronics)
I spent months casually researching all different brands of binoculars, comparing features and value and its not easy. However after reading a review on [...] I decided to take the plunge and I am delighted I did. VANGUARD Spirit ED 8420 BinocularsThey were delivered quickly by Amazon and just in time for my trip to St Kilda in the Outer Hebrides.
I spent most of my week on board a dive boat with forays ashore and took these with me everywhere. I had no worries they might get knocked and damaged as they are superbly built and great for this type of trip. Used them at sea to spot several pods of Dolphins and Whales too as well as all the sea birds and fantastic scenery. I am currently using them watching deer and birds and they are good at this too.
The image is bright and clear right up to the edges, fast focussing, waterproof and caps that wont get lost or get in the way. I did not find them heavy and they sit solidly in your hands and the twist up eye cups are great and comfortable unlike my old pair. For the features and the quality these have the price is great too. You won't be disappointed.
