Vortex Solo 8x36 Monocular
This is a very good monocular for the money
I also own two 8x25 Vortex Solo Monocular, but I like this one better. The Vortex Solo 8x36 Monocular gives you a bigger field of view and a brighter image.
I like the metal clip. When I am working outdoors I can slip the monocular on my belt. This give me both hands free without having the monocular swinging around on a neck or wrist strap.
Every Solo Monocular I've owned has a stiff focus wheel, but they do loosen up with use.
And it only takes a quarter turn to go from close to far.
For me, I only use a monocular in special situations. I keep one in each car's glove box. I always take my 8x36 Solo in my gear bag.
