Just returned from a Newfoundland moose hunt. These binoculars exceeded my expectations. The 12X magnification came in handy when judging antlers at a distance. I also found the brightness and clarity across the field of view helpful in picking out animals in cover. They seem light for a 12X bino (33 oz). I used a harness for carrying them around while hiking and when standing. Weight was not an issue. When I got in close to a group of moose, they came in handy for peeking through brush to see moose and determine bulls from cows and rack size on the bulls. I look forward to using them again on my next hunt.

Crisp, clear, comfortable! Outstanding glass in an ergonomic, reasonably light weight package. All the features and quality I was looking for with top notch warranty. Optics planet delivered with their typical quick ship and ease of purchase. Would highly recommend!
