        Comments about Alpen 8x42mm PRO Waterproof Binoculars:

        We purchased these binoculars to give to the native bird watching guides we use in developing nations. We have learned that it is imposible for locals to acquire any but cheap and easily broken binoulars in such countries. We give local guides the choice of a cash gratuity or new binoculars. So far native guides have unanimously chosen the binoculars and practically kiss our feet for our thoughtfulness. We do this in part because we cannot think of a more effective way to encourage environmental conservation with this same amount of money.

          Comments about Alpen 8x42mm PRO Waterproof Binoculars:

          I bought this binocular for my wife after being wonderfully suprised at the quality of an Alpen Spotting Scope I just bought. This is an excellent line of optics, it is equal or out performs my Nikon Optics especially when you factor in the price (and price does matter with outdoor optices due to the risk of theft and damage). Very bright binoculars, excellent construction-very sturdy. The only draw back for this particular bino is it that close focus is 15 ft.
