The SV 10x50 Binocular from Kowa Sporting Optics is a larger sized binocular at the edge of handheld viewing with comfort. With an objective size large enough for good observing during twilight hours when the game is more apt to show itself this size binocular is also a good choice for scanning the night sky before picking a telescope's target. Nitrogen filled waterproof and fogproof ensures optical protection in all weather conditions and outdoor situations. Rubber armoring provides a secure and comfortable grip, as well as added shock-resistance.

The optics are fully multicoated minimizing light loss and increasing brightness. Phase coated for true color fidelity and provided with a highly reflective coating that produces a clear visual range and sharp image puts this binocular on a level of optical excellence. Twist-up eyecups contribute to the viewing comfort; twist down for use with glasses, twist up for use without. The conspicuous red line at the intersection of the closed bridge adds a distinctly snazzy flavor to the overall visual presentation. This is a comfortable roof binocular with an especially sleek and attractive flowing design. Smooth and sleek with strategically placed indentations in the rubber armoring this is a practical and visually pleasing scope to own.

question

Can anyone who wears glasses comment on how well these work for them? The eye relief is only 15mm.
Asked by: Anonymous
So these will work, however I would agree the Eye Relief might not be good enough. I would recommend going with the Pentax 8x25 A-Series AD WP Compact Binocular. The model has a 21mm Eye Relief, which will probably the largest Eye Relief Binocular we have in Compact Size. Website link: http://bhpho.to/2bGZO5J
