Wide angle binoculars with good eye relief for glassses

Postby alien on Sat Aug 11, 2012 3:12 pm

Hello,
I am looking for the best low range price binoculars for sporting events. I am looking for a wide field of vision however, I am also looking for something that could be used with glasses.

I was looking at these:

http://www.amazon.com/Bushnell-Xtra-Wid ... 5HEB0JDO5P

because the FOV on them is incredible, however I don't think they would be good for use with glasses.

SO I found these two:
http://www.eyeskey.com/8x30-Compact-Wat ... ulars.html
http://www.eyeskey.com/8x25-Pocket-Size ... ulars.html

The 8X25 has a slightly better eye relief at 16mm verses 15mm in the 8X30, but they are also lower priced. Is that a reputable band? I am skeptical because I can't find much information on the company and all the reviews seem to be written by the same person (they all make very similar grammatical errors (the kind a non-native english speaker would make)) which just left me a little suspicious.

So if you know of any good binoculars at a similar price with a great FOV and eye relief suitable for use with glasses please let me know

Thanks!
alien

All of the binocular models you have listed possess adequate eye relief for use with eyeglasses (approximately 15-16mm)
