    Comments about Minox BV II 8x25mm BR Compact Waterproof Binoculars:

    I recently received these binoculars in December of 2012. They appear to be look well made and look expensive. When looking through the lenses of these binocular's. They are very clear and bright. They look what you would find on larger and more expensive binoculars. Also, they are very light and small enough to be worn on your belt. I am very please with the performance of these binoculars. I would highly recomend them.

      Comments about Minox BV II 8x25mm BR Compact Waterproof Binoculars:

      I purchased these binoculars to use for hiking and backpacking. I picked them because of the wide field of view and waterproof construction. I read other reviews that questioned the optical performance and dubious quality control. I have been pleasantly surprised about this pair. It is plenty sharp, and a nice pair of compact binoculars. The minimum interpupillary distance (IPD) is rather wide though, I have to bring the tubes as close together as possible. These binoculars won't work for children.

      Overall I am quite pleased with the Minox BV 8x25, they are just what I was looking for.

            Comments about Minox BV II 8x25mm BR Compact Waterproof Binoculars:

            I was looking for a decent pair of compact binoculars for general purpose use that I could also pack for travel. I decided to listen to those who have gone before me and went with the almost jitter-free 8 power with an extremely wide field of view and eye relief 15mm or greater.

            Having made the decision on power, FOV and eye relief, there were really only two pairs of binocs left to choose from---these or the venerable, though slightly bulkier, Bushnell 7x26---at twice the price. I went with these. So far, zero regrets.

            I'm sure a trained eye could discern a quality difference in the optics between these two but for my purpose, an all-around pair of binocs with good magnification, steady image and a wide field of view, the Minox are more than good enough---at half the price of the Bushnells. They really are a great price/perfomance compromise.

            The only negative, for me, is using binoculare with eyeglasses. Although the eye relief measures 15.5 mm and is recommended as suitable for eyeglass wearers, looking through binocs while wearing glasses left me a little disappointed. There's something about looking at the image from that distance from the lens that left me feeling "removed" from the action. Fortunately, despite my astigmatism, I can remove my glasses and bring the eyepiece up close and immerse myself in the scene.
