Brunton Echo compacts

I do not like to walk around with 400-600 dollars in my winter coat pocket. I use Vortex Vanquish 8x26 for my casual travel and birding binos. Will the Bruntons bw any better? I would use a 28mm, but there just are not that many, single hinged.
I am also sometimes logged to your system by EeTee, it did not want to give me my ET name for the board, Joanie.
Also, how long will the price hold? I can only spend more in January, Christmas is not paid for yet.
I get it about Christmas, of course, but, no way to guarantee prices down the road. I suspect you'll be fine on prices in January, but no promises.
The Echos will definitely save you some bulk and so on, due to their roof design, but optics are probably better on the Vanquish. The 8x25 Eterna is more comparable. If money is an issue, though, try the Echo

The other one I looked at was Leupold Olympic, but the field of view is again under 300ft.
When I retire some day, I will treat myself to a alpha..or Nikon..8x20 pocket pair, before the IRA money runs out. [joke]
