    Comments about Alpen 8x42mm Wings ED Binoculars:

    The Alpen Wings ED binocular is about as good as it gets in my opinion. For a binocular that provides ED glass it was very reasonably priced. The open hinge design works very well and is comfortable. They work great with my eyeglasses.

    Comments about Alpen 8x42mm Wings ED Binoculars:

    Alpen stated 21 ozs. on their web site specs. We purchased them for the light weight promised. They were actually 24.5 ozs. on a digital postal scale! That's almost 1/4 pound. Good for burgers, not for small people.
