Atlas Radian 8x42
From Becky in New York: I have started birding with my 2 sons, aged 11 and 9. My older son and I have been fighting for my Eagle Optics Ranger 10x42's when we go. The other old, cheap bins we were using were not that good. I wanted something that was as clear as the Rangers which I love, but less expensive, given his age and commitment. We both think these are fabulous-- very clear, easy to focus, great light,and being 8x-- easy to find the birds. They're comfortable to hold, but feel a little heavier than the Rangers (though only 2 oz more). Still for $200 less,they're perfect for our needs and I think the high quality will keep him more interested in birding.
