These were purchased as a gift for a friend who is getting into bird watching. They are light, bright and appear well made. I was very impressed with the image clarity for binoculars of this price range. Chromatic aberrations are present in areas of high contrast but are reasonably well controlled - they don't jump out at you. The field of view could be a bit wider to make it easier to locate the subject, but I knew that when making the purchase. I didn't have a chance to use them in the rain to see if they fog up. All in all very good for the price.
The purchasing experience was very good. I paid through Google checkout and the item was shipped promptly and well packaged to avoid any potential damage.
Eagle Optics Shrike 8X42 Binocular
Janie from San Francisco, California
Being new to birding, I read the reviews and talked to other people about what to buy. I made absolutely the right choice as I find this binocular to be very easy to focus, it is light weight, and can be used with or without my eyeglasses - a real plus. I recommend it highly.

I love, love, love my new Shrike binoculars. First time owner of a pair of Eagle Optics binoculars, found them on sale on the Eagle Optics site, and I am very happy with them. Just the right size too.
Great binocs for the price

I am a beginning birder and these are perfect. The image is bright and crisp and the binoculars feel solid and well made. The price at $99 including shipping seems very reasonable.
Eagle Optics Shrike, 8 x 42 Binocular
Edith from Newnan, GA
Very satisfied with binocular quality and ease of use - main use is identifying back yard birds for Cornell's Project Feeder Watch. I compared this product with other more expensive binoculars having the same 8 x 42 magnification and found it to provide images that are very bright/clear with sharp focus and essentially no distracting distortion. I am a casual user who finds this product exceptional for the price.

Gene from Newport N.C.
This has been one of the best pair of binoculars that I ever bought. Very easy to use and understand the functions and crystal clear viewing
THE Woman's Binocular
Jamie from Temple, TX
First and foremost, this binocular has excellent clarity! Additionally, the eye relief cups come out further than most so my eyelashes don't touch the lenses! Also, it fits nicely in a woman's hands and is very light. I highly recommend this binocular, especially to other women for the reasons stated!
Good service from Eagle Optics
Louis from Verona, NJ
The binocular arrived on time and was just as described in your website. I am well satisfied with your product
Good beginner binoculars
Abrahm from United States
I've been surprised by the quality of these binoculars. I've had no problem going from my warm car to the cold fall air due to them being fog and waterproof. I have also been very happy with the optical quality of the binoculars, the colors look good and the image is nice and sharp.
I've really enjoyed using these binoculars in the field. The focus knob moves nicely and I have no problem tracking birds in flight. The focus does take a few spins if you want to move from the minimum focus to closer to field distances but otherwise the movement required is minimal. The eye relief on these binoculars is also excellent as a glasses wearer. I really love these binoculars.
