The Bushnell Legacy WP is a good quality porro prism Binocular as well as a good value. I bought the 8X42 model. They are coated with a durable and easy to grip rubber coating and the images through their fully multi-coated optics are clear and bright especially for this price range. The eyecups are easy to just twist and adjust and there is also a diopter. They are a little big and heavy; when I bought them I anticipated installing a bino harness. My one major design complaint with these binoculars is their deeply recessed carry strap/harness loops. I was unable to install a harness on them (unless I were to use the plastic tie strap to attach the key ring type metal loop to the bino strap loops which I didn't want to do, because this would make it difficult to take off the harness If I wanted to). I ultimately ended up replacing the included dental floss like strap with a padded neck strap (not my first choice but a big improvement over the supplied strap. I had to use a pair of tweezers, which slightly damaged the strap end in order to thread the strap through the Legacy's deeply recessed strap hooks. The Legacy WP also included a vinyl-padded case with a strap and covers for the ocular and objective lenses as well as a lens cloth. While they are not perfect they are solidly built and have good image quality at an affordable price.
