Very useful piece of kit
on 27 May 2014
This has been an excellent purchase. I use it mostly for trips to the Scottish mountains, where it is useful for scoping out faint paths or checking a stream for potential crossing points. It's also come in handy for impromptu wildlife viewing; the small size means it fits into a pocket and is quick to access when deer come wandering over a rise. It's light and compact, so isn't a burden to carry, meaning you're more likely to have it when you need it. I usually carry mine in the hip-belt pocket of my rucksack, so there's no need to stop, take off my rucksack and go rummaging through when I want to use it. It's coped admirably with mistreatment from a very clumsy owner- the lanyard and lightly padded case help with that.
The Minox Macroscope has found a place in my 'always with me' kit for the outdoors. It gets used on every trip.
