Nikon Trailblazer ATB 8x25 P/N 8217

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on August 12, 2011
Bought this for hunting and they are the right size, power and wide field of view for glassing. It would be nice if they came in camo like my Nikon rangefinder and made a package deal. Camo belt cases for them would be very appealing also.
Pros: compact, light, sharp image, wide field of view
Cons: would like covers to protect ojective lenses...
Would recommend: Yes

Abutalib Alameer test

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 17, 2010
if you are looking for a real compact binocular with huge FOV without compromising the FOG/WATER PROOF ( like some other models ) get this one.

it's difficult to fine a binocular with such size, weight and FOV all together with weather proofing, top specifications like roof prisms, nitrogen filled with this low price.
must to say that i didn't notice that you must adjust the diopter adjustment over almost its entire range of motion when going from a nearby focus to infinity
very affordable as for price, Fog & Water proof plus O ring sealed, very nice FOV, very compact.
only one : if Nikon made the diopter adjustment like the old classical way instead of adjusting the two eye pieces..

Pros: very offordabel as for price, Fog&Water proof plus O ring sealed, very nice FOV, very compact

Something's got to give

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, IL Written on April 24, 2009
This pair of binoculars has nice, coated optics that give great images. It's waterproof and small enough to fit in a pocket, and it's cheap - much cheaper than other binoculars giving a similarly crisp and pretty image.

So where's the catch? Getting a focus out of these binoculars is like pulling teeth. Notably, the diopter adjustment (the one that makes both eyes focus at the same time) is very strongly coupled with the focal point; one must adjust the diopter adjustment over almost its entire range of motion when going from a nearby focus to infinity.

Also, the focus adjustment itself does not turn smoothly, and the eye relief is not really enough for easy use with eyeglasses.

This pair would be fine for looking at more or less stationary things - looking at landscapes, going to the opera, etc. You can take off your glasses if you wear them, wrestle with the adjustments until you get both eyes to focus, leave the adjustments alone, and enjoy the view. But for more demanding applications, e.g. birding and other wildlife watching, or for sharing between people with substantially different eyesight, you're in for a world of hurt with these binoculars.
Pros: Good optics, waterproof, light
Cons: A pain to focus, insufficient eye relief...
Would recommend: No
