    I carry a pair in my truck and my Polaris Ranger. I have given several pair to family and friends. One pair I ran over, they didn't break but the focus was off. Because of the great low price I just bought another pair. They have a clear wide view. They are rugged and last a long time. They take daily punishment and use. I have found nothing better for the price. My brother in law was looking at a pair of binoculars that would have cost him 10 times as much. After he compared them with the Legacy he got the Bushnell. They were just as good and stronger.

    Nice Binocular

    They are nice binoculars. Easy to figure out and a clear view. The strap is so so, but other than that, I really like them. They are a good first pair.

              Just a note to tell you how pleased I am with the 8x42 Legacy WP Bushness Binocular. The optics are supurb. The view is crystal clear all the way to the side of the optics tube. And, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of light it gathers. Things I cannot see at dusk are picked up clearly by this great binocular. So I am just letting you know that I am a "happy camper."

                Really enjoying these for birdwatching. The large view field makes spotting easy. We have used them in a rain forrest, and they are certainly waterproof and fog proof! Images are crisp and bright. I like the size and weight which makes them easy to keep steady.

                        It's bright and clear. Purchased as a gift for my mom to watch birds feed in the backyard. I used them for a week before I mailed them to her.

                        I probably would buy something smaller for myself if I wanted a pair to throw in my hiking bag but again, no complaints with the optics.
