      Comments about Bushnell Excursion-EX 8x36 Waterproof and Fogproof Binocular:

      I bought these as a compact pair to keep in my truck and use for fishing and hunting. We have 2 pair of Leopold Wind Rivers already so I am comparing these with a binocular which is twice the price.Overall I rate these 4 stars. They are not sharp all the way out to the edge and could use a bit more eye relief for glasses wearers, but the reason I down graded them is the focus adjustment. It is stiff and hard to turn making it hard to get a good adjustment and they tend to move as you're pushing and tugging to focus them. Still, probably a good value for the money and maybe the focus knob will loosen with use.

          Comments about Bushnell Excursion-EX 8x36 Waterproof and Fogproof Binocular:

          I am a wildlife biology major and was in desperate need of a decent, fairly priced pair of binoculars. My professor found this pair for me and told me they are exactly what I was looking for. As soon as I got them I went outside to get them focused to my eyes (Which is very easy to do with these) and I was amazed by the clarity and focusing ability! Overall I would say these are a must have for people that are just starting out in the bino world as they are light weight and very simple to use! I also love the focus lock feature!!!
          --One very happy customer! :-)

            Comments about Bushnell Excursion-EX 8x36 Waterproof and Fogproof Binocular:

            An excellent pair of binoculars for the money. Image quality compares favorably with my much more expensive 8X32 Nikons, but the Bushnell has a substantially wider FOV which makes it much easier to pick up birds at the periphery. The focus lock is an odd feature: OK for theater or some sporting events, but not for birding.

            Comments about Bushnell Excursion-EX 8x36 Waterproof and Fogproof Binocular:

            Bought sight unseen, these bins definitely fulfilled my highest expectations. The specifications match most top brands without the top price. I use them for bird watching mostly in rainforest conditions where light gathering, clear optics and close focus are essential. These do that. Their light weight (610g), modern, double, open-bridge design, strong Bushnell construction and soft-touch thumb positioning make them excellent to use. Two friends of mine have already bought the same after using mine.
