        Comments about Bushnell 8x26 H2O Compact Binocular (Blue):

        I use for spotting small movements at distance.
        Do you want the cold truth? As a kid, NO ONE would buy a bushnell product, Top of the trash.
        Now I can't praise the company enough. I'm afraid to show them to anyone, lest they want to touch them!!!
        Bushnell, I shall spread the good news 50 years later.

        Comments about Bushnell 8x26 H2O Compact Binocular (Blue):

        We wanted a set of binoculars that had a nice clear image, light weight, easy to use, didn't fog up and were robust enough to cope with the occasional accident. We also wanted all this at a good price. The H2O Compact Binoculars have delivered for the most part and are great value for money.

        Comments about Bushnell 8x26 H2O Compact Binocular (Blue):

        I took these glasses out to a concert at a large venue and loved the way they brought the stage back to the nosebleed section. The light weight allowed me to use them for extended time and their small size made carrying them a breeze. The extended eye relief made using them with glasses work well. The mechanism is tight and well-built. The right-side diopter adjustment might be a bit tight, but it is best to start that way. They compare amazingly well to my U.S. Army M17 7x50 glasses, but at a fraction of the size and weight.

          We haven't used them yet, other than around the house. We bought them for an upcoming trip and it seems like they will be perfect for that. They are easy to adjust which is a plus as there are three of us going to use them.
