I want 8 or 10 power binocs, in a weatherproof case, to ride on my 4wheeler. Since they will always be strapped on my Honda, they will be exposed to weather, dust, and theft. I donít need the Ďbestí, but just decent tough binocs. And a good weatherproof case is important. Suggestions?

Iíll do some googling, but also want owner type info.

Never mind, i just ordered some Minox 10x42 binocs for $145. Those should do just fine for ATV duty.

Those are the exact binoculars I opened this thread to recommend. I got a set for Christmas, and they do just fine for what I need.

The Minox 10x42 BF binocs arrived. They are relatively small, not too heavy (a bit heavier than the old Leicas), and appear to have excellent glass. Itís amazing what you can get for a reasonable price. Compared to some Nikons we keep in the house, and paid a good bit more money for, the Minox is better.

And a fellow can pay 20 times that amount of money for ďthe bestĒ.

Anyway, if somebody is searching for decent binocs at a very reasonable price (probably an upgrade coming, so they wanted to move these), these are darn decent.

I got a great deal on a pair of Minox binoculars from Cameraland. Kept one and gave the other as a Christmas gift. Great glass at a very reasonable price.
