Takeaway: Easy to use and focus, but no scale for quick adjustments, not waterproof.

One thing I wanted to note is that the box that my unit came in had the wrong spec on it, listing them as 10x50 binoculars even though the binoculars inside were marked 20x50 on the body. The other thing is that the product description under specifications says that there's a tripod adapter (Tripod Adapter: Yes Waterproof: No) but there is not one included.While these mistakes don't affect product performance it could cause some confusion when making a purchase.

You'll receive a neoprene carry bag with a shoulder strap, the binoculars, two microfiber cleaning cloths, an instruction sheet, and a lanyard. The binoculars are pretty heavy, weighing just over two pounds. They measure about 8"W x 7"L x 2.5"H. The binoculars have rubber lens caps on the front and back lenses. The ones on the front are tethered so you don't lose them, but the ones over the eye lens are not attached so make sure you keep track of them. The width, or IPD, of the binoculars is easy to set by pulling the two tubes out or pressing them together. The instructions state there are supposed to be markings so that you can quickly set the binoculars for next time, but the ring between the eye lenses only shows a few dashes and dots that aren't that helpful for this purpose. I found them difficult to see and set accurately without a real scale and prefer ones that have line markings in contrasting colors.

Focusing each eye independently is easily achieved by following the directions but again, there's supposed to be a scale for the right eyecup so you can set it to that position quickly next time, but all you see is a plus, minus, and a dot with no reference points. In fact the rubber eye cup can be removed and re-positioned without adjusting the focus (and sometimes moves during twisting) which makes these markings useless.

However, once both eyes are focused you can look with both eyes and the image should be clear. As you look around at things that are closer or farther away, you can re-focus by turning the dial in the middle. With these binoculars, you won't be able to focus on objects that are less than 15 feet away but you should be able to focus on things about 150 feet away. The binoculars don't appear to focus to infinity for things that are really far away (not great for night or celestial viewing) Other than the missing scales for the adjustments, the binoculars are easy to set and use. They seem to work well, although sometimes the eye pieces tend to fog up and they are quite heavy so it gets tiring to hold them. You could use them for bird watching, sporting events, and even live performances, but remember that they are not waterproof if you plan to use them outdoors.
