I second Jeffrey's endorsement of the Nikon Monarchs. I recommended them to
two friends & they are very satisfied with the quality of the coated lens &

your hands around some test models & give them a go outdoors.
Of course, if you go to a real bricks and mortar store to try
a pair of binoculars, you'll buy them there rather than searching for the
lowest price on line, right?
