        Comments about Minox BV 8x25 BRW Binocular:

        I'm always looking for close focus binoculars, which function best for general nature study. The best, so far, are not waterproof. These fill that void, within about 18 inches of close visibility. Light gathering very good and due to their small size, work well with my camera-binocular combo. It is supplied with an excellent neck strap but without lens covers supplied, this seems odd. The case was ill fitting so I swapped it for another. The disappointments had nothing to do with the binoculars themselves, thus my rating.

        Comments about Minox BV 8x25 BRW Binocular:

        Aloha, I am a field botanist. I use these binocs to Spot rare hawaiian plants across gulches and valleys. I needed a very lightweight, very compact binoc that will fit into my vest. This was perfect!! Not only were the size and weight perfect, the clarity and stability were excellent. I am very happy with these binocs. :)

            Comments about Minox BV 8x25 BRW Binocular:

            This binocular was bought as a backup for times when my wife didn't want to carry along larger binocs.

            The only "but" is that the distance between pupils is not specified, and the smallest distance is just a bit large for my wife's use.

            For the size, these binocs are lighweight, sharp, and have reasonable eye relief and field of view.

            A good binoc that compares favorably with more expensive models.

              I purchased this 8x25 Binocular solely because of the Minox reputation.. and they exceeded my expectations! Beautifully constructed with high quality 'glass', perfect for shows, ballgames, birds and watching cruise ships go by. One terrific bargain..

                Comments about Minox BV 8x25 BRW Binocular:

                I selected the Minox strictly for lightness and compactness to watch birds from inside our rural house. Was astonished to find that it fits the hand very nicely, and the optics really "pop", comparing very favorably to several more expensive standard-sized binoculars even in deep woods in early morning. It is now competing for "most popular" status.
