Best Binoculars for about $20 dollars

#1 for me. Cost is about $20 dollars on Amazon. For years, I have wanted a pair of inexpensive binoculars so when I got home from work I could enjoy the nature in our backyard. I have found that these work awesome. They are also great for Mariners baseball games. Amazed at the quality for the price. bigge

Really like the look and power of these binoculars that are less than $20. Nice clear image. No complaints here. My 2nd and sometimes first choice, depending on your circumstance of use. bigge

WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR IN BINOCULARS:

1). Price: When I started my Amazon search for a pair of binoculars for my christmas list, my first consideration wast the cost.  I’m not a hunter or an army sharpshooter. I’m a 9-5er that comes home and occasionally wants to do some bird watching or nature watching.  I wanted to spend about $30 dollars.

2). Quality: The problem with buying a $20 dollar pair of binoculars is that you often have to compromise on quality.  I just didn’t want to compromise on quality.  I didn’t want some plastic Toys R Us binocular toys.  I wanted a mans pair of binoculars for a kids price.

3).  Power:  When I look in the distance I want to see nature up close.  When I look at the moon, I want to see the pock marks.  When I look at an athlete on the field, I want to see the expression on their face and the beads of sweat running off.  These Bushnell binoculars give me all of that:

4). Size to Carry: I wanted something that I could easily take from location to location.  Fortunately, these binoculars come with a carrying case.  Unfortunately, they are a little bit bigger than I wanted.  They don’t fit in my pocket.  If you are looking for smaller, than you would be better off with these Merytes:

5).  Focus: Give me something to focus with.  Easy to focus, no blur. I have found that my bushnells are very easy to focus in.  They focus from on top with the push down focus system and with the lenses.  No issues with focus and zoomability.
