With its small, lightweight, and ergonomic shape, Nikon’s Travelite series is popular for general use. Aspherical optics minimize distortion to provide sharp images edge to edge, and optical surfaces are multicoated for bright images. Magnification is 8x, just right for most uses. Casing is rubber coated for non-slip grip. The small (25mm) objective lenses ensure light weight, but compromise brightness and viewing comfort somewhat, compared to larger, heavier binoculars. The exit pupil of 3.1mm means this binocular will work best under fairly bright conditions, and 14mm eye relief is just enough to permit use with eyeglasses. Overall, the optics are clear and sharp, and for the price, these do a nice job. Offers a 25-year warranty. Made in China.
