I hunt in many different conditions, and I am always looking for the perfect optics to use. I have to say, I was extremely impressed with the clarity of these binoculars when I received them, particularly in low light. The image is so sharp and crisp that you can see every little detail when you are looking through them. In low light they hold the light longer then any other binocular I have used. They did so well in low light that while hunting Red Stag in Spain, my friend had to put down his Leica and used my MINOX binoculars to be able to see the stag on the hill 300 yards away. I never had any issues with getting double vision or a headache when I spent long periods glassing, like I have with other optics and they have a great field of view (374ft/6.5 degrees). I find the eye cups very comfortable and have no issues with them fogging up on me, even while hunting elk in the rain. They are lightweight at 650 g (22.9 oz) so they don’t tire my arms nearly as fast as other binoculars on the market. They are made of a rubberized material which helps with gripping them so they are less likely to slip out of your hands, especially when wearing gloves. I have had these coming up on a year and I LOVE them, I wouldn’t trade them for any other brand.
