Customer Reviews

Great value! This is an overall excellent value.Quality: I like the fit and finish an awful lot. The coating feels great, and it can take a lot of shock. The case is typical nylon, nothing special, but considering this is a lighter object, it's up to the job. The image is very good. Only drawback is that it has inferior reflection characteristics. It can be difficult to make out details in low light, or to see astral objects (not that the zoom was serious enough for much astronomy).Function: The 10X zoom is just at the edge, for me, of what's useful without being so much zoom that it's difficult to hold steady. Remember: you'll only be using one hand to steady this. Too much zoom and that becomes shaky. It's nice and light, and as useful as a good set of binoculars, but easier to use in many respects. Even if you're using much better optics, such as a rifle scope, binoculars, telescope or a nice camera, this is an excellent aid in understanding your far surroundings quickly and easily to identify something you want to use the other optics to see.It's also good for many uses on its own. Birdwatching, ballet or theatre, exploring, etc.For the dollar, it's one of the best. 5Good enough I don't know very much about optics, however, this product does the job well for the price, it is very good for observing from a distance but will provide very little detail on objects within a range of thirty yards, ie: birdwatching.This product would be perfect for a kid; small enough to provide minimal discomfort, but powerful and durable enough to be effective. Furthermore, if the kid loses it they are ridiculously cheap to replace. 3Inexpensive and functional. While this may not be as good as my Brunton Echo (despite the fact this this is 10X and my Brunton is only 7X), it's still a fine monocular, especially for the price. It seems to be quite sturdy, but I'd avoid dropping or smacking it into anything all the same. The only thing I found odd was that they decided to put the focus on the eyepiece instead of the end of the device. If you wear glasses this means you will likely smudge the lenses when focusing due to your fingers rubbing against the them. The entire monocular is covered in rubber, not counting the small piece of plastic that holds the neck strap on (which happens to come pre-attached, by the way). They also come with a relatively well made looking nylon case. Overall, for the price, these are a fine choice for those that don't want to lug around bulky binoculars yet still want to be able to see far away objects. You could do a lot worse. 4Nice piece I carry an emergency kit in my car. The kit is made to be small and portable in case I have to hike out of an emergency situation. The small nature coupled with the good optics at a great price made it a perfect item for inclusion in my kit. During a recent trip we ended up stopping the car and getting the monocular out of the kit to look at horses in the distance. It worked so well that I am considering buying a second one to leave in the glove box. 4Army user Im INF doing PSD, do a lot of mounted > dismount > mounted stuff and wanted something quick and light. For the price of this thing its actually pretty rad, easy to stabilize, one hand use (gun in other) and doesn't take up much room. We go from the city to the country and back all in a days work so from IEDS by the road to guys on the roof this little thing is great. I took a star off because it is cheap and I don't expect it to last forever just through this deployment. That being said $15 bucks a hop isn't bad at all, the privates in my squad all bought one as well so its not going break the bank or anything.Good stuff. 4THIS ONE !!! I bought one of these well over a decade ago...It was my first spotting scope...Over the years I've tried others, from cheap to expensive, and none could hold a candle to this one...One of them was a fixed 15 magnification...That one had a light metal body, and the magnification swivel was on the end of it...It was awkward to use, and didn't clarify well...That one gets a "garbage" rating...Another one I only tried because it won some award...That one was a 10x to 30x magnification...That one didn't clarify at all above 10x, and the 2 swivels were too easy to move and overall it was just an awkward scope...All were a complete waste of money...I learned my lesson, and stuck with this scope...At one point I had three of them...This one really surprised me, and still does, for what you get for the money...It is rock solid...With the hard rubber body, it can really take a beating...The rubber also makes it easier to hold without slipping, and more comfortable overall...The swivel is strong and takes some effort to move it...This, to me, is a good thing...I can rest my finger or fingers on it (depending on how I'm holding it) without fear that I just blurred it...Another selling point (for me) is the inclusion of a lanyard...Not because I ever use the lanyard though...With all of mine I wrap the lanyard tight around the body, and seal it shut with "florist's tape"...It's a waxed tape that only sticks to itself, and is waterproof...Anyway, the reason I like the lanyard hole is because it is situated perfectly to easily position your fingers with it to make a perfect 3 point contact against your face...An easy way to hold it is to push your middle finger against the lanyard bump with the hand that will go around your eye, leaving your index finger free to make the adjustments...With the supporting hand you push your index finger against it...On the bottom your thumbs connect...This spotting scope gives you clarity you simply wouldn't believe for the price...It has outshined every one I've tried...One last thing...This powerhouse comes in a very compact body !!!(see picture)I couldn't be more satisfied with this scope...HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDGood luck !!! 5Handy size, marginal quality Ordered two initially as I like to have them in the car and for viewing small print from the back of the room during presentatins. The small size and quick focus adjustment are handy for that, but the optics are marginal (can't expect much more for the price). One of the first two literally fell apart when first tried: one of the pins at the eye piece used to rotate the focal plane had sheared and the eye piece fell off the first time I tried to adjust focus. Amazon replacement policy had another one to me in a few days time, and the two I have now work fine. They are good for what you are paying, but they are not Zeiss. 3Great For Light Use - Great BOB Addition I consider a functional monocular to be a worthwhile addition for any Bug-Out Bag (BOB).Everything about this monocular must be considered in terms of its PRICE. For the price, this is a more than capable product.After running this through a battery of tests, I found that it does a more than capable job. It works as expected at different levels of light, and the focus is sharp enough to read license plates from a great distance. I'm not an optics geek, so I'll leave the particulars to others.These work just fine, and will be useful for infrequent and light use. 4You get what you pay for I confess. I was trying to be cheap, and it came back to bite me. I had been considering the Brunton monocular, and wanted to save some cash. Most reviews for the Alpen were pretty positive, so I decided to go that route. I think now that I'll return it and try again.Cons: I have several problems with this monocular, mainly optical. First off, there's a fair amount of chromatic aberration in the optics, so that it's difficult to figure out when you've finally gotten it into focus. Second, the amount of pincushion distortion is pretty ridiculous. And if you're looking for close focus, forget about it. The closest I could get was about 20-25 feet. Finally, fit and finish were fairly shoddy, with the cuts of the rubber armor pretty haphazard.Pros: Very lightweight. You'll notice this more for the space it takes (not much) than for the weight. And it is 10X - I was able to read a license plate from about 100 yards, so not bad.If you value price over performance, this is the way to go. Personally, I'm returning it to buy the Brunton model. 2does the job Ordered this for my husband to take to Afghanistan with him. Hes a soldier, they carry a lot of stuff everywhere they go anyway, so he needed something lightwaight, small, and worth taking with him. This did the trick, it Magnifies ALMOST as good as my dads expensive hunting bi-noculars, but a fraction of the size and waight. Easy to use, easy to carry, easy to put back in your pocket if youre in a hurry 5
