What are our customers saying?
Nikon quality is just as good as it always has been. Good mid price binoculars. Clarity good enough for deer hunting and probably bird watching. Used at almost 400 yards and could c how many points was on the deer.
This a great piece of my hunting excursions, second pair i’ve bought. One for the truck and one for the pack. Only buy nikon scopes also
I was looking at binoculars priced between $75 – $500 for an upcoming trip. And because an older pair i use for backyard birdwatching isn’t as powerful as i want.
This pair, though priced very reasonably when compared to others, is impressive. Its field of vision is wider than my old pair, its optics are clearer, and its magnification stronger. Of course, i haven’t looked through more expensive brands but this felt like a big step up for me, at a modest price. So, i’m happy.
Easy to use
I love my new binoculars!
I was a little concerned i might not be steady enough to really enjoy using these, but it is a non-issue! I figured if the focus and steadiness were to fine for my older, shaky hands i would give them to my wife.
Ha! Not a chance, lol!
We are avid birders and my old pair were just frustrating. These are amazing quality! They are lightweight and shaped comfortably. I have severe ra and numerous other issues. My love for birds is still outweighing the pain however. These are smaller and well balanced. They are a dream to adjust, too. I have very strong glasses & have no issue with them in regards to comfort.
The other great thing, is the close focus is excellent! I am actually bed bound often and we have tons of things in our yard for me to watch on the days i’m stuck. Our room opens to the yard and much of what there is to see is just 10 or so feet out, especially the beautiful, tiny warblers. Now i can watch them with ease.
I typically research the heck out of every purchase, these were no exception! Finally, i narrowed it down and these won. I am so excited to have chosen a regret-free pair.
I would not be able to afford a high end binocular. These will do me great and if something does happen to them, i will not be completely devastated.
Got these for my dad (mid 60s) because i thought he needed a new pair that were bigger for deer hunting. Crystal clear, great in low light conditions (dad says it seems brighter when looking through them than looking without them lol), and you can count the tines on deer standing in the woods about 150-160 yards. Worth the money if you have a stand. They are big so keep that in mind if you want to pack light or don’t have much room in your stand.
Bought these for our two week trip out to the great northwest. I really didn’t want to take the bigger binoculars i have, because of their size and weight, so i went looking for others and found these. We were able to see mountain goats way up on the glacier at many glacier in gnp. Also we were able to see orcas from the ferry we took from the us to victoria island (to the port of sidney). I had asked attendant before getting on ferry if we would possibly see any orcas. He said no. I was discouraged but still took these nikon’s with me out of the car and up on the deck. At one point i saw a group of 3 boats close to an island we were passing. They were a long ways off. I pulled out the nikon’s and sure enough, those were whale watching boats and i was able to spot the orca’s fins and watch them blow out their blow hole. I guarantee, no one else on the ferry could have seen that without binos. They are lighter than the standard binos, which is what i wanted. They are not compact, (pocket size) so they are kind of an ‘in between’ size. I would definitely take them on other trips. If looking to buy in this price range, give these a test.
They came with a neck strap and lens covers, along with a pouch. The covers can come off easily, but honestly, just be careful and you won’t lose them.
Very nice quality. Easy to use. Brings in objects close.
Good for the money. Bright and crisp images and light weight.
I’m pleased with the prostaffs. I have 2 pairs of nikon binoculars, the other is from nikons aculon line, and both strike a good price/quality balance for me. The view through these is crisp and vivid. They could be a little lighter, but by no means are they heavy. I’ve had more expensive binoculars that i wasn’t any more impressed with. Nikons, for the cost, are just right and hit a sweet spot, for me anyway, between something like a pair of leicas and and inexpensive but pretty acceptable plastic binoculars. For spying on birds and watching the street these are good, the optics look good to my eye, and they feel solid and durable.
The edge clarity is outstanding. Focus is a bit twitchy to get nailed.
Did not like the loose lens cpas and the way the eyecups easily shifted after setting them where you wanted.
Put on a set of flip up lens caps to replace the cheesy stock caps:
no more loose caps.
Added two large o-rings between each eyepiece cup and the body to stop them collapsing all the way. That adjustment stop has them always right where i want them.
I have older binocs by a higher rated manufacturer that cost more than double this one does. They were wearing out so decided to buy this binoc since i saw good ratings and the price was very reasonable. Can’t tell the difference as far as image and these are much lighter. Been using several months now and the only issue i have had is the adjustable eyepieces are not tight enough and tend to drift around, causing me to have to screw them back to where they need to be. Good choice for those who can’t afford higher priced binoculars.
They seem to hold up.
I like using this item but as soon as i bought it i wished i would have gotten the singled eyed version
These are great value for the cost only reason for 4 out of 5 is the lens caps are terrible. The front caps fit great but dont work well in use due to how they mount on the straps. The rear cap does not fit at all its too loose. Still would recomend these binoculars however.
These are easy to use and have great optics. I would suggest that the eye pieces be attached so you don’t risk losing them
I like the clear view and the item look solid. The only complaint is that the caps of the lenses are easy to lose.
I bought it for my son, who has picked up the hobby of bird watching. He seems happy enough with it.
There is some color fringing specially with strong side light. Good value for the money. Nice to keep in your car.
