I got these for my husband for Christmas and he loves them. He say's they are perfect for hunting. He has used them everyday to see how well they work and is extremely happy with them. He likes that they are light weight, focus really well, and feels as though they are made to be heavy duty.

Bought to give as gift but was so dissatisfied with the size and product quality I decided to try it for myself. Light and compact is viewed by some as good qualities, myself however I would say small and cheap looking. Very difficult to focus and not very stable.

    Comments about Bushnell Explorer Binoculars, 10 x 42 - Black Finish:

    Great binoculars. 5 star quality and construction. Anyone saying that they are hard to focus must not know that binoculars not only need focusing, but also may need calibrating to an individuals eye sight.
