Spend enough time on the water, and your equipment will spend some time in it. That's why Bushnell had the foresight to build the H20 series of binoculars, which are O-ring-sealed and nitrogen-purged to complete lock out moisture should you spill water on the housing, take your binoculars overboard, or simply run into foul weather along the way. The H20 binoculars feature rubber armoring with textured pads to give you a sturdy grip in slippery situations. More significantly, the binoculars' multicoated optics and premium-quality BaK-4 prisms maximize light transmission and image clarity, so you can enjoy a clear view of the Orcas in the distance or the fast-approaching coastline. You'll quickly see how a little planning on Bushnell's part goes a long way in magnifying your adventures on or around the water. Other features include twist-up eyecups, a large center focus knob for easy, precise adjustments, and a long eye relief.

Objective Lens: The diameter of the objective or front lens. The larger the objective lens, the more light that enters the binocular, and the brighter the image.
Field of View (F.O.V.): The side-to-side measurement of the circular viewing field or subject area. It is defined by the width in feet or meters of the area visible at 1000 yards or meters. A wide angle binocular features a wide field of view and is better for following action. Generally, the higher the magnification, the narrower the field of view.
Roof Prism System: In roof prism binoculars the prisms overlap closely, allowing the objective lenses to line up directly with the eyepiece. The result is a slim, stream-lined shape in which the lenses and prisms are in a straight line.

I saved about 25% on the current purchase price as they were on offer at the time. As usual i recieved speedy service from Amazon. I was pleased with the quality of the build and liked the built on lens caps (my other binoculars had small caps to put on which got lost with time)and the good quality case. The binoculars were very solid looking and are faced with rubber, which is textured in places to help grip.
I took them to test them to a local beauty spot called Clent Hills, to test them prior to my holiday and on this, and every subsequent occasion, i have found them to produce very clear images, be easy to focus and use, even for glasses wearers like myself and nice to not have them fog in heavy rain!
I had a problem with the focussing mechanism and recieved excellent support from JJ Vickers and Sons (Bushnell's UK importer) and had a repair for free. These binoculars have a lifetime warranty.
Overall, I am very impressed and the only thing i wish, is that they were smaller at times, to fit in with my camera bag or to slip in the pocket, but they are better made than others i have owned!!
The binoculars themselves & good quality, bright image & easy to use. the binoculars are quite large & heavy, but that's the price to pay for a brighter image. They include a strap & also a cheap bag - also with strap. Also a very small lens cleaning cloth. My first try of Bushnell products & I would buy this brand again.
When I looked at the picture I had in mind that they were compact, and although certainly smaller than traditional binoculars, they are still rather larger than compact ones, and are pretty heavy. I considered not taking them on a recent motorcycling tour as a result, but I'm glad I did, because they are just so good to use.
I have compared these bins to others a friend has with similar magnification - those cost 3 times as much as the Bushnells... And no, they were certainly not any better.
In short, a nice lightweight pair of binoculars that should see you through many years of viewing, no matter your hobby.
