From Edward V. in Norfolk, VA:
I selected this as a gift for a nine-year old beginning bird watcher and thought that their combination of optical quality, magnification, light-gathering, field of view, and light weight - plus their overall fine workmanship - made them ideal, and that they would serve her well through her beginning years in the hobby and beyond.
The accessories and very reasonable price were added bonuses. They are proving to be an excellent choice - outstanding optical quality and easy for her to use; her parents are enjoying them, too!
ALSO ... Kudos to your firm. I asked questions about the binoculars via email and received a prompt reply with very helpful information. Packing and shipping were fast and the binoculars reached New Hampshire quickly and well before Christmas.
