Compact Binoculars

Recommended Posts

Looking for some recommendations for some smallish binoculars. Small enough to fit in a largish coat pocket. Don’t want to break the bank

I use a pair of Opticron T3 10x25 WP off Ebay for putting in my jacket or on my belt just in case. Been very pleased with them

I use 8 x 20 a lot.  Very good in fair or better light, though field of view is less than larger binos.  I guess whether that is a problem depends on how you will be using them.  If you want a closer look in at something you have spotted by eye, it shouldn't be a problem.  If you are looking for well matched deer on a hillside, it might matter.  For low light, they are not ideal, but for the vast majority of the time, great and so convenient.

Firstly, second hand should be better value, and you might also be quite happy with a very basic (and cheap) pair if they are to be carried everywhere.
