An all-conditions traveler's unit, the Leupold 8x25 Rogue Compact Binocular is a "reverse" porro prism optic for value-conscious consumers. At any price, its 6.4° angle of view, 15mm of eye relief, and waterproof housing make it an attractive small binocular.
Particularly in entry-level and intermediate class segments, the compact 8x25 porro prism can often better its more expensive 8x25 roof prism competition in terms of the viewing experience. The roof prism models are a hair more compact, and can at times tuck in to a shirt pocket. But by any standard for daytime viewing, the Rogue 8x25 Compact's a lovely general-use choice for those on the go without a need for a larger, brighter binocular meant for twilight.
