Comments about Alpen 8x42 Wings Binoculars:

Am I reviewing the binocs or Hayneedle? or both? I'll go with both. Hayneedle was disappointing not having available knowledgable sales staff. They were always "busy" and I even gave my name and phone number so that I could be called back by Hayneedle. No call back. One star.

Now the binocs themselves I would give 3 stars. They are well-made in terms of optics. But their design itself does not fit my hands at all. I have to close down this binoc to about 55 mm. interpupillary distance, and this so "distorts" the pair that they become hard to hold. My right hand winds up ON the right hand strap "pass-thru". I can't get my thumbs under the pair because of the folding of the entire unit.
