So far everyone who has looked through these binoculars (and indeed the 8x42 version) seems to like them. We find these excellent binoculars and have no hesitation in fully recommending them.

The Kowa BD-XD42 series feature long eye relief eyepieces with twist-up / twist-down eyecups which allow both users with or without spectacles easy comfortable viewing, the binoculars are nitrogen filled and fully waterproof. Supplied with a case and strap and a two year guarantee.
