Perfect size (not too small for my hands) and very light weight (11.8 oz). Great take along binoculars; however, image quality is only good (good to very good for compacts), resolution is good to very good, packaging is good (rubber armor is good) - although not as sturdy as the less expensive Vortex Hurricane's. Eyerelief is very good, almost a bit too much for my glasses. Twist up eyecups are typical (good), Diopter control binds against twist up eyecups when eyecups are down and diopter is turned toward negative - twist eyecups up one notch and all is OK. Focus control is excellent: very large depth of field for 8x, total adjustment in just 3/4 of a turn, close focus at 7 +/- feet, field of view is larger than I would prefer. Comes with a good soft case, fair strap and standard (good) lightweight rainguard. No objective lens covers. No after-market tethered objective lens covers will fit (barrel diameter is too small). A very, very good take-along binocular! If possible, try to compare these with the 8x Hurricane's. I could never find a pair of 8x Hurricane's, so I bought the Fury's. However, the Hurricane's are better packaged (a bit heavier - 14 oz), probably share the same lenses (but possibly not the same coatings?) and Hurricanes are a good bit less expensive.
Pros: Leightweight and perfect size
Cons: Only good image quality and a bit pricey...
Would recommend: Yes
