From Jeffrey in TX:
Overall, the Bushnell Excursion is an excellent binocular available for $150 - $200. Waterproof, fogproof, nitrogen purged, should be worry free.
The first thing I noticed was how heavy the box weighed when UPS delivered it. The mid size binocular is solidly built and has the feel of quality.
The optics are very clear and quite bright. I used it for bird watching in the back yard as soon as I received it. As expected, it performed well in daylight. I recently took it to an indoor concert and it was excellent for a bright clear image in poor lighting.
The eye relief is generous and accommodates glasses wearers.
The locking focus is not much use for birding as they are usually never in the same place. I did however find it quite handy at the concert - I got the binocular fine tuned in on the stage, locked the focus, and was able to later just raise up the binocular and everything was clear.
The focus knob is smooth and fairly easy to use with one hand.
The right eye diopter is stiff but smooth and the twist out eye cups are easy to operate.
The neck strap is wide and padded, this makes it a little bulkier, but more comfortable.
The carrying case is semi rigid and "double wide". It is almost square.
The biggest shortcoming - the lens covers. They were designed to be lost. They are better left in the case and used for protection in storage only.
Optics - 5 stars / Overall - 4 stars
