Anyone use them? I lost my binoculars last year and am going to snag some from my mom as an X-Mas present. I've been looking at the Fullfield II camo...probably in 10x42.Does anyone use them, or a similar set? Anything out there that you can recommend if not these? Criteria is: $200 range, compact, and preferably comes in camo (not a necessity).Thanks!

Stick with Leupold optics as they guarantee their products evenwithout a receipt. I had dropped my binoculars and they replaced them no questions ask.

Pentax makes some very nice and not too expensive binos too.

I love my Pentax 10's. They are a little large, but my buddies that carry the compact 8's sure do envy me when we have to use them. I envy them while we're carrying them though. :-)Just a thought about camo. I have a friend that lost his camo pack up in Ak during a hunt a few years ago. They laid it down to take the shot, had to run up a rise to make sure that the goat fell. They looked back and couldn't find the pack. It was actually found a couple years later. I have just decided that all my gear will be solid colors except for my clothing. Clothing only is camo (except for my bow :-))

I did the same with my Leica Rangefinder. No Leica doesn't make camo anymore.

Thanks Braz, wish i had come up with it before loosing that jacket, but then, under my rules I still loose clothing. As early and hot as it is when we hunt, i'm lucky i don't go home in my underwear. lol

Now THAT's funny right there!I've got the Leica too, BLACK - the LRF 1200, old school! :-)

Thanks for the comments. My buddy uses a set of Monarchs and I like those a lot, but I still think they are bulky. The last pair or Bushnells I lost was also a compact set, but a good 10 years old. I did really like the size, so that is something I'm going to stick with. The last set I lost after I went after a White front that was dropped out at a friends duck club. I grabbed my backpack from the tank and forgot to snag the binos on the way to the goose and then to the truck. Lame.I'll look into those that were mentioned and go from there.

I got my Burris binos when I bought Burris fullfield II scope for my rifle. Only drawback with is cheesy cover that falls off while hunting in heavy brush. Lucky twice that I was paying attention and found covers on ground. Can't beat scope or binos been in rain/mud/snow with em and only had them fog up on me once but able to survive heavy cover when stalking deer last two years running. Don't go cheap otherwise pay price on quality.
