    "A light weight contender but don't let that fool
    you. When it becomes too heavy to carry a pair of
    binoculars, carry this gem in the glove compart-
    ment of your vehicle. At 303-foot-at 1000-yards,
    and the price you pay,the Alpen monoculars 10 x
    25 should handle most of your needs. It's also
    a great instrument for hunters that don't want to
    carry a bulky pair of binoculars-and frighten the
    animals away. It's greenish color blends in well
    with the scenery! Enjoy!

    After a lot of research, I decided to go with the Alpen brand for an inexpensive monocular. Of the "budget" brands, they seemed to have the best reputation.Unfortunately, this model seems to be the same, cheaply constructed design that other brands also stamp their name on. I didn't expect much from a sub-[$]monocular, but I was still disappointed and returned the item.The item that I received had a very sticky focus ring that was just not acceptable. Also, the rubber coating seemed like it would peel off rather easily. Lastly, the lanyard cord is very long and cumbersome for typical use, and cannot be easily removed since it is attached with screws.Perhaps I received a lemon, but I would recommend that anyone interested in a compact monocular take a look at better models. They cost a bit more but you often get what you pay for. I personally recommend the [...], which is what I received in replacement.

    Comments about Alpen 10x25 Monocular:

    I bought this for use at work (I am a security officer) and got to try it out today. The focus is fairly clear and it lets me read license plates and observe people from a distance. It can be a little bit difficult to acquire a subject because of the limited field of view, but once I have it on something, the image is fairly clear and bright, given the cheap lenses. I've only had it for a very short time, so I cannot comment on its durability, but it seems reasonably well-made for the price. The carrying case seems decent, too.

    This is not a serious piece of optical equipment, but for $15 it should satisfy more casual needs. Recommended.
