    Pocket Binoculars

    I am looking for a pair of decent optical quality binoculars suitable for pocket carry.
    8 x 20 to 10 x 25 type of thing - I will consider second hand in a higher grade model
    Any recommendations or ones to steer clear of will be appreciated.

    Take a look here for Swarovski's in the 250-360 bracket:

    does it have to be binoculars? if not then these are surprisingly good value for money

    I like the Zeiss Victory 8x20/10x25, which have a single off-centre hinge. Might not be a big deal for some, but I find the single hinge makes it quicker and easier to adjust them for use.

    I use Swarovski 8.5x42 EL for stalking but recently bought a pair of Nikon Monarch 7 8x30 for 259 from Clifton Cameras. I think these are incredible value for money with fully coated ED glass and a 145m field of view. They are very light weight and much better than any 8x20 or 8x25 compact-believe me I have a pair of Leica 8x25 and I prefer the Nikons!

    Not really pocket size are they, I also have Meopta 10x32 but still find plenty of use for the little Zeiss 8x20
