Great pair of cost-effective binoculars - 09/02/2015

by Mary W from Houston, TX

These binoculars were a higher upgrade from my current pair than the price would suggest. I'm really happy with them. I had a compact set before so these are heavier by comparison, but not too heavy. I can easily and quickly spot what I'm seeking, a great upgrade! The focus is easy and quick to adjust and the accompanying booklet is very helpful. I did find that the lens covers fall off pretty easily. I now just pull them off and stick them in my field bag, so they don't get lost. Overall, a great purchase!

Great binoculars! - 07/31/2015

by Morgan from Olympia WA

I am very impressed with the binoculars. Very clear view, easily adjustable and light weight. I can have trouble viewing through both eye lenses of binoculars, but these work very well for me. Highly recommend!

Very good binocular for the price! - 07/21/2015

by Donald W. from Willow Springs, Missouri

I bought these to use around the farm for hunting and wildlife watching. The optics are outstanding, and you won't find a better binocular for the price. The focus is a little stiff, but it will probably loosen up with time. I bought a similar 8X42 pair from Eagle Optics in 2001 and they are still working perfectly. Would certainly buy again and recommend these glasses with no reservations.

Denali - 06/13/2015

by Roger S. from United States

First pair of binoculars. Eagle Optics was recommended by a friend. Ordered the Denali. Very happy with them. Suggested same to my friend. She has the same feeling about the Denali.

So much light! - 06/07/2015

by Nik M. from United States

So much light! These binoculars will magically illuminate any critter you dream to set your eyes upon! Praise!

Eagle Optics Denali 8x42 Roof Prism Binocular is a great buy - 05/26/2015

by John P. from Duluth, MN

This is the best binocular for the money, without exception. The optics are very sharp, the focus is smooth and rapid, the size is compact and light, it balances well in my hands, and my ability to see through them with my glasses on exceeds any other binocular I have had.

I can see the birds now - 05/21/2015

by Helen W. from Chicago

Using good binoculars like these creates a whole new viewing experience. I've seen my first Indigo Bunting. The blue was so startlingly blue I couldn't believe it. The Denali does a great job! My only problem was that a lens cover slipped off on Day 1 & was lost. There should be a way to attach the lens covers more securely. The good news was that Eagle Optics sent out a replacement cover within two days of my calling to complain.

Great Company - 05/13/2015

by Angela O. from Baton Rouge, LA

I own 2 pair of Eagle Optics Denali 8x42s. The first pair, after many hours of use had the adjustable eyecup wear to the point that it would not stay in place. The second pair was dropped. Totally my fault. In both cases EO repaired my binoculars at no charge to me. The only cost was to shipped them to their repair facility. On the first pair, the eyecups were replaced with an eyecup with a better design to avoid the previous wear issue. The binoculars were also aligned and cleaned. One of the logos on the body which had been missing was replaced. I had not asked for it to be replaced but I mention it because it's the little details like this that make me a loyal customer to this company. The second pair, despite being dropped by me, was also repaired at no charge. Again, the binoculars' alignment and focus was adjusted and they were cleaned. They both were retuned to me as they were when brand new. Overall, I love these binoculars but the intent of this review is to point out how much I appreciate the way this company handles warranty issues. Pretty soon I'll be upgrading my optics. I haven't decided on a model yet, but rest assured it will be an Eagle Optics/Vortex model.

Amazing - 05/04/2015

by Jerry from Port Angeles, WA

I am a professional field biologist and scientist with the US National Park Service. I've been a birder all my life... 60 years now. And I've also been a binocular fanatic buying and selling only high end Zeiss, Leica, and Swarovski binoculars online to help out friends who trust my judgment and knowledge of the makes and models.

I recently needed to buy an inexpensive gift for someone and thought I'd try Eagle Optic's economical Denali's. I have to say that I am ASTOUNDED by the wonderful quality and bright image from these glasses. I think they are fantastic for the price and very extraordinary value. I cannot say how they might stack up against the more pricey glasses over the long term... but right out of the box these are an instant delight. Try 'em, you'll like 'em. I sure did. Amazing.

awesome - 02/22/2015

by Ronnie from Houston, Texas

After spending my first spring migration last year using $25 binoculars from Academy it was time for an upgrade. After reading all the reviews I went with the Eagle Optics Denali 8x42s. They are wonderful and I could not recommend them enough. I literally saved my pennies for months to go towards buying my new pair and the price on these seemed very reasonable along with the good reviews. Taking them out for the first time I actually caught myself focusing on a Mourning Dove because I was seeing colors and a sheen that I had never seen before with my other binocs. Highly recommend for the thrifty birder.

Very pleased! - 02/19/2015

by Terry S. from United States

I am a beginning birder and Eagle Optics was recommended by a friend. The binoculars I got are great. Even better, the customer service when we called in with questions about different binoculars was excellent and the lifetime no questions asked guarantee made it a no risk purchase. I definitely am recommending the glasses and the company whenever I can.

Denali 8×42 - 02/10/2015

by Dee D. from United States

Perfect for our trip. Weight and size very packable. Optics beautiful. Got same for hubby too!

Impressed!! - 12/30/2014

by Bob S. from New York

I own Bausch and Lomb 8 by 42 and bought the Denali model for my wife. I was amazed at the clarity of the image. Also the close focus is great. Much better than my binos. I may purchase 10 by 50s for hawkwatching. Great quality for the price.

FANTASTIC - great bins for educating with! - 11/18/2014

by David from Charleston, SC

As Director of an Environmental Education Program, I have purchased a large number of these Denali models over the past 6 years.They are worth every cent!
If you are an outdoor educator and want to improve your ornithology class for children or adults, I highly recommend that if you can afford these, buy them!
The optics are great, and they are light-weight enough for young children to grasp easily.
Over the 6 years that we have had the initial 15 pairs, they have been used by countless 5th graders, and we even let 1st graders use them - although, please note that I wouldn't dream of doing that without using a full bino harness, to prevent drops. In that time, I have only had to retire 1 pair for excessive scratches. These bins seem to shake off almost all abuse thrown at them. We get naturalists bringing back bins to be cleaned that appear to have been thrown in the sand on our beach, and with a little TLC they look brand new. FANTASTIC!
Every single time I order from Eagle Optics, I have been incredibly impressed by their attention to detail, customer service and their products.
Well Done!

Great Binoculars - 06/18/2014

by Richard D. from Aston Pa.

I purchased these binoculars after reading the reviews. I bought them for my wife's birthday. They were just as described. My wife loves them for bird watching.

Excellent Binocular - 06/18/2014

by Barney L. from Maine

Easy to focus. Not too heavy. Highly recommend

All around awesome - 06/08/2014

by Kyle from Avon, CO/Allegan, MI

As an emerging naturalist/birder I decided binocs would be a good investment. These are the perfect binocular for those who need a crisp, close look at nature without sacrificing several paychecks.

Great Binoculars - 05/28/2014

by Nicole G from Elkridge, MD

I used these in my Ornithology class and liked them so much I bought a pair for myself. They are easy to use and a great deal for a beginner like myself. The neck strap is also very comfortable.

Fantastic binoculars - 05/06/2014

by Laura H. from Valparaiso , IN

These binoculars are wonderful for quickly seeing all the new birds that are coming into my yard. I can grab them quickly and zoom in for a closer look. The covers are attached so I don't worry about where they went and can cover the lenses again when finished.

Excellent Quality - 04/30/2014

by JD from Tennessee

Love these!!! I had a friend help me find a pair of binoculars and could not be happier with our choice, They focus with ease. The picture is so clear, did not know how different birding binoculars were. Would recommend these to anyone.

Love My New Binos! - 04/17/2014

by Sheri R. from Ventura, CA

I ordered the Eagle Optics Denali 8x42 Roof Prism Binoculars to use for birding and I love them. The quality is excellent, and focusing is easy for up close or distance. We take them to all our local birding sites, including viewing the Bald Eagles nesting at Lake Casitas, CA. They work well for me since I wear glasses and there is no eye strain at all. My husband was so impressed with these binos that he wants me to order him a pair as well. I was also pleased to order from such a reputable company as Eagle Optics.

great new binoculars - 04/15/2014

by Pietro G. from United States

I'm still very new to my Denali 8x42, so haven't been able to fully appreciate them (consequently "Very Good" rather than "Excellent", but probably the latter).
They were recommended as a best choice for a new birder by a very experienced one, and they seem to live up to or surpass my expectations as being easy to acquire an image and focus.
I'm looking forward to keeping my list of avian observations going!

Fast, Wonderful Service! - 04/15/2014

by Laura H. from Valparaiso, IN

Ordered and they were here the next day. These are great lightweight binoculars. Just what I was looking for. Clear, sharp optics with easy focus and all the pluses I was looking for: case, lens caps, cleaning cloth, and carrying straps. These aren't the most expensive, but they sure beat a heavy, ancient pair for birding!

Reason to be OPTIC-MISTIC! - 03/06/2014

by Jeffrey L. from UCLA

Absolutely love these binocs. Resolution is so clear, and will make my research so much easier and my birding so much more fulfilling!!!

Great product and company! - 02/15/2014

by Helen from Kansas

You company was recommended to me by my daughter, an avid bird-watcher, photographer, and nature-lover. After exploring your excellent website, including viewing a couple videos regarding the use and choosing of binoculars, I chose the Denali 8X42 binocular. I am very pleased with them and with the speed that they arrived. Since we have had some very cold and snowy weather since I received the binoculars, I have not had a really good chance to try them out, but what I've seen so far, I am very pleased with them. I look forward to using them a great deal in the coming months and years.

Perfect for me! - 02/06/2014

by Vonnie K. from United States

While I am not in the category birder that my husband is, I still needed something clearer, smaller and lighter than my previous pair. A friend had the Denali's and let me try them. I was sold. I appreciate the lighter weight and the clarity is wonderful. The size is perfect to carry around the neck for extended periods (my husband's are big Swarovski's and too big for me). They are easily adjusted and gather light quite nicely. Sometimes I do wear my glasses and the retractable rubber eye pieces are such a bonus. They are much better than the rubber pieces you bend back. The pricing on these binoculars was another plus for me. And I love the life time guarantee!

Great Deal - 01/28/2014

by Tess K. from Portland, OR

The Denali model is perfect for a naturalist such as myself. Whether I am spotting birds or other wildlife, these binocs were up to the job.

Delighted! - 01/28/2014

by Dianne C. from Cincinnati, Ohio

I am so pleased with the purchase of my Eagle Optic Denali binoculars. Now I have a much better chance of distinguishing one sparrow from another! Great value, too. I may buy another pair to keep in my car.

These binocs are fantastic! - 12/20/2013

by Christina B. from United States

The clarity is amazing, they are light, and easy to focus. I love them. I was also very pleasantly surprised at how fast they arrived.
