Pocket Binoculars Reviews
by Michael and Diane Porter
Why get pocket binoculars?
The best binoculars in the world are useless if you don't have them with you. For example, if you left them home because they were too heavy and you weren't intending to go birding anyway.
But birds can turn up anywhere, any time. A black-throated blue warbler might materialize in the mall's parking-lot shrubbery. Or a tufted duck could wander in from Europe and splash down on the river you drive across every day on the way to work.
What if there were a binocular so small and light that you always had it with you? You could always be ready and never miss a bird.
What we ask of a pocket binocular
It has to be compact and lightweight, of course, with good optical quality. Some of us need long eye relief to accommodate our eyeglasses. We'd like to be able to focus close, and we like a wide field of view. Ideally the pocket binocular will be waterproof. And we always appreciate good ergonomics.
Here we look at some of the most popular pocket binoculars to see how they measure up to our requirements.
