    This is a nice product. It's compact and lightweight with good optics at an affordable price. Focus is easy to attain and the lens caps are designed well. The color is much darker than shown in the website image; a very dark navy, almost black. Unfortunately, the supplied neck strap is lacking. I replaced it with an OP/TECH Classic Strap and the combination is very comfortable to carry for long periods. The only flaw is that the strap loops should have been better located. They cause some discomfort when focusing and make the binoculars hang at an angle. In spite of this, I'm satisfied with the product.

    I returned these binoculars to B&H and bought better glasses from another source. The H2Os are decent for the money, but next to 2 other pair I tried (Alpen Wings 10x42 and Bushnell Excursion EX 10x42) they were less bright and had a smaller FOV (305 v 330 and 341ft). The brightness and clarity may have to do with the fact that the H2Os are not fully multi-coated and there is no phase coating on the prisms. The weights of all 3 pair are about the same. I decided not to go for broke with expensive binoculars (e.g., ED glass, dielectric prism coatings, etc.) because I won't use them that much and the cost is double or higher. I went with the Excursion EX because they satisfied my basic requirements for power, brightness, clarity, and FOV at a reasonable price. They have pincushion distortion, but all the ones I tried did and it doesn't affect the center image of irregular objects in nature.

      This is the first pair of binoculars that we've owned that weren't second hand. Images are sharp, easy to adjust and not too heavy. We are enjoying using them for birding.

        I've been using these every day since I bought them a couple weeks ago. I use them to watch animals and birds by the rivers near my home. I've even brought them on canoe trips, and it's nice to know they're waterproof so I don't worry about them getting wet. For the price, these are great quality. They're also really comfortable to hold - I love that they're rubbery and grippy. I'm in love with these binoculars!

                My wife is confined to a chair in the house. She watches the birds and deer out in the yard through the sliding glass doors. These are the perfect tool for her to see details of the wildlife and she just loves it. She says she could count the fleas on the deer.

                  After an easy adjustment to my vision, these binoculars are awesome. I'm able to see clearly and with great precision. I use them for birding and they work great. It allows me to quickly hone in on my target and they are steady....so I can get a look at the bird before it flits away. I'd recommend them!

                    Easy to adjust pupil distance and focusing. The size is ideal and comfortable to hold. I live at the beach so there is a lot to focus on: ships, birds, etc. Waterproof is a plus for the beach and boating. Strength is ideal. Wouldn't want anything heavier.

                      Size is compact and convenient, but not too small. Great viewing for wildlife. So handy that the lens caps are attached so I don't loose them. Not a big deal, but the lens cloth that comes with it isn't very good, so I recommend a eyeglass cloth to keep in your case. Great quality and price point, especially being water-proof!! Very satisfied with my purchase. I researched many pairs and retailers before deciding on this one from B&H.

                                I was surprised at how compact these are. They will be easy to carry while hunting. The lining around some of the lens aren't uniform so I hope this doesn't mean trouble in the future. Otherwise they seem well made.
