I chose the Tactical 10x42 R model mainly because of the reticle, the design, optical quality, and its reasonable size and weight compared to Steiners porro prism military binoculars.

excellent piece of equipment

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 17, 2009
I've been using this product in the mountains and deserts of afghanistan for the past 6 months where I ride atv's 8hrs a day banging these optics around and other than some dirt getting into the outside armour coating its as good as new. I've used this product to make reasonable accurate ranging on humans out to 2000m.
Pros: tough, smaller than other models, clear glass
Cons: price...
Would recommend: Yes
