Compact and lightweight, the Roamer lives up to its name by being easy to pack and carry, giving you the freedom to roam wherever you wish. This model is outfitted with a moderate magnification with a space-saving reverse Porro prism light path to make it comfortable in the hand while providing a rich depth of field.

8x21 Roamer DPC I Binocular is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super bargain Purchased to replace my wife's 8X20 Nikon Travelite. She was especially fond of the tiny size & light weight of the Nikon, but they were drowned in a canoing accident, and Nikon's smallest Travelites, 8X25, are significantly bulkier & heavier. These Olympus binos are if anything even lighter, totally pocketable, the optical quality and FOV are very good, and for the price they are an absolute steal. The only shortcoming: they don't focus as close as I would like, but then, I prefer the Pentax Papilios.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LITTLE Glass I got 2 pairs of these for my kiddos, and they are a great little glass. Very small, very bright, easy to use. I will totally be borrowing these for events. They bottom line is they perform above their price point. Are they going to replace a good set of porros, no. However, they have fairly low CA, and for a 21mm objective are brighter than I expected. Don't expect miracles, but they are very good for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked them so much, bought a second pair! I have used these binoculars for watching ballet for about 5 years. They are a convenient size for either a medium size purse or deep pockets. My daughter recently became a birdwatcher and has taken over ownership of these glasses so I had to get a second pair! The case and neck strap are great and the binoculars are easy to focus.
