      The binoculars meet my non-expert expectations in terms of image brightness and clarity. Sole reason for not giving them the highest rating is the lens caps. Difficult to understand why Nikon would deploy cheap caps with such a nice product. They're thin and flexible, do not stay attached to the neck strap and are prone to getting lost.

      not great for motion

      optics where very good but hard to use if you move at all. Blacked out eye piece with any movement what so ever.

        I purchased these binoculars specifically to use on my first trip to Africa. I did a seveal day photography safari and used the Trailblazers frequently. They performed well and made wild animal veiwing very exciting.

                Haven't used them much, but seem to be a perfect birthday gift for my husband. Comfortable to use and very clear. Overall, very pleased with the quality for the money spent. I bought them so that he can check on the cows from the back porch - it seems that they will be perfect for that.

                    I bought 2 of these Nikon Binoculars - one for my Dad for his Birthday and I was so impressed i bought a second pair for my sister for Christmas.They are most impressive and tremendous value being (on special) delivered to my door in Australia. An equivalent quality binocular in Australia would've cost me 1.5 to 2 times the price and they were delivered in 4 -5 days!!Thank you B&H for great products at fantastic prices and fantastic customer service - Well Done!

                      These were the first new binoculars I'd bought in over 30 years. I can't believe how clear and bright the picture is as compared with my old porro-prism ones.

                              I finally decided to treat myself to a 'real' pair of binoculars after years of using the tiny compact kind that can be had for $30 or so. The Trailblazer ATB 10x42 have proven themselves to be a wonderful upgrade and I am very happy with them.

                              Eye relief is great, focus is quick and easily accomplished the optics are - as you would expect from Nikon - great.

                              My only nitpick (and hence 4 instead of 5 stars) is a slight amount of chromatic abberation that shows up now and again. This is certainly not anything that would keep me from buying them again myself ... or from recommending that you buy them too. Still, fior the sake of a complete review I thought this one, minor data point was worth mentioning.

                              All in all, the Nikon Trailblazer ATB 10x42 binoculars get two enthusiastic thumbs up from this reviewer and I recommend them without reservation.

                                As others mentioned the lens covers are cheap. I don't like the turn-and-slide eye cups on the front lenses - seem a little cheap. You have to have the the binoculars adjusted perfectly to our eye width or your get a bad image. The field of view tight.

                                All that being said, I am impresses with the clarity and magnification of the images - which is what it is all about. I have only just received the item and haven't had the change to get outdoors and use them.

                                      The binoculars meet my non-expert expectations in terms of image brightness and clarity. Sole reason for not giving them the highest rating is the lens caps. Difficult to understand why Nikon would deploy cheap caps with such a nice product. They're thin and flexible, do not stay attached to the neck strap and are prone to getting lost.
