To start, this is a nice monocular. It is actually waterproof (I tested it under a faucet. It passed where a cheap Brunton that claimed to be waterproof failed miserably). The Field of View is HUGE. The construction seems very solid and the price is right.
On the flip side, this thing is a monster and weighs quite a bit.
Being waterproof and having a huge field of view, it would be right at home on a boat. However, I don't think it would be my 1st choice on a backpacking trip.
Overall, a very nice piece, just gotta know what you're getting.
Pros: HUGE Field of View, Waterproof, Good Construction
Cons: Big, Heavy
