I noticed an ad in the BASC mag for Brunton binos and gained the impression that they were made in the USA. None the less I checked the web and was amazed to find that these things sell for Swaro sort of cash:


Now, I'm not thinking of trading in my Minox but has anyone got experience of these? Are they actually worth the cash in optical terms or are they sold on the usual American ticket of patriotism and good customer service when it falls apart?

The background is that I'm amazed as, to put it tactfully, it seems that Americans judge optics rather differently to us here in the UK so to find they were asking Swaro money for their binos was a little bit of a shock. However, if they actually are starting to produce quality optics then a little competition can only be a good thing.
