Great for the money
Yooper from Upper Peninsula of Michigan
I have to start by saying my go-to binoculars are my 8x42 Zeiss Conquest HD's. I haven't had any real experience with higher priced bins so my Zeiss bins are my personal benchmark. That being said, the Atlas binoculars are very nice but not in the same price or quality range. They are very clear in the sweet spot but the edges do show distortion. The second time I used the bins the Atlas tag on the focus wheel fell off. I glued it back on and it's fine, but the quality could be improved. They are slightly bigger than I expected but to me that's a plus. I think they are very comfortable to hold and use. I like the open hinge design. I simply can't give these bins a 5 star rating because I have used better, but they are awesome for the money. I have actually recommended them to others and have ordered an extra pair for myself. At this price I don't mind leaving a pair in the truck. Eagle Optics warranty coupled with the HD image quality make the Atlas binoculars a solid primary pair of bios and an excellent backup.

Whoa Nelly--These are my new go to bins for the season. Light, crisp and very smoooooth!
I really love these--the ergonomics are up these with many European brands. Great focus, a tad stiff, but all in all, very satisfied with these. Extremely sharp! Worth 5 times what I paid!!!
Eagle's service was superb--THANK YOU!

Although I haven't tried these binoculars in the field yet, but I like the clean image that seems larger than it ought to. I would recommend them based on the reasonable price.
Entrepid 7x36 ED - great binoculars
James L. from Maryland
I am super pleased with these Binoculars and recommend them especially for their bright high quality image. The "sweet spot" is wide with very high resolution and very high contrast with no noticeable off-color gradually changing to a relatively small fuzziness at the edge of a very wide FOV with no apparent distortion. Image is at or near alpha quality. The focus wheel has no apparent slack. With their lifetime no-fault warranty I won't worry about their durability but they seem fine. Two recommendations: 1) make them smaller (shorter) 2) make the focus faster (fewer turns). I have no problem with the lens covers as has been reported by others.

I bought these binoculars because the price was good, and the 7x magnification intrigues me as I age, and stability becomes an issue. I like them although I haven't had the opportunity to use them extensively. They do seem to be less well made than other binocs I have but they seem adequate, as the parts seem to be made of good materials. I would recommend these as an initial pair for an adult and a next pair for an interested young person.
Very good binox
Art J. from Duluth, MN
I've bought two of these for my sons and am now buying another one for me. I've compared these to my 7x35 older Lietz and newer Swifts. The light transmissin is the best, and the field of view is the flatest (little distortion at the edges (check by viewing a shingled roof or brickwall and seeing how straight the lines at the edges are)). Color and low light are excellent. I haven't tested out the waterproofing yet.Carrying strap is excellent.
The depth of field is excellent and makes for minimal focusing. Eye relief makes centering your eyes very easy. The tripod mounting thread is unique and nice for stars. Mainly use it for birding and on the boat. 7x35 are the perfect binox for me. The 8x30 just don't have the field of view and light gathering capabilites. The 8x42s are just too big to carry around and don't fit under a coat to keep warm in the winter. The lower 7 power is the best for tracking all moving objects. The price is great, but these are the only binox you will need--no need to upgrade.
WOW - Wide Open Wonders!

Want to see more than 1 bird in your field of vision?, then Atlas Intrepid HD is for you.
The wide field of view (477 ft/1000 yds) and great close-up (~5 feet) are tremendous assets for this very reasonably priced binoculars. And waterproof too!
The only downside: flimsy seeming "case" and protective lens cap that wants to fall off - small strip of black electricians tape does the trick. The somewhat stiff focus wheel prevents unintended changes.
The 7x magnification and 36 objective lens do not appreciably diminish your viewing pleasure if it is not primarily long range. Easy to track birds on the wing. Great for beginners or the budget minded.

I recently purchased the Atlas Optics 7 X 36 binos for my wife.
She returned them for the following reasons.
Primarily, with the eyecups all the way out (only 2 stops), she was getting dark edges in her view. The eye relief is listed at 16.8 mm's.
She currently owns a pair of 8x32 Zeiss Victory FL's with an eye relief of 16 mm's and they are fine. This leads me to wonder if eye relief of the Atlas is correct?
Also, a couple of niggling things that, had the eye relief (and optics) been acceptable, might have been tolerable. The eye cups did not "seat" solidly, and the focus wheel was a little "spongy". And finally, the weight on a postal scale with no straps, lens covers, etc., was 23.5 ozs., The listed weight is 22 ozs.
These were purchased with weight as a concern.
In our opinion, the idea of a good 7x36 binocular is a good one. In fact, it is my belief that if someone would make a 22 oz., quality 8x36, it would be close to the perfect all around birding binocular.
These may indeed be very suitable for a "value" range binocular, and I leave it to others to comment on the optic quality, but I feel the excellent Eagle Optics Rangers (of which I own the 8x42's), would be a better choice than the Atlas.
