A good, inexpensive pair of binoculars.
I bought these to bring to Kansas for deer hunting. Unfortunately they did not do what I expected of them so I sent them back. They did not draw enough light to be able to see clearly enough at 160 yards to see if a buck was a shooter or not. I had all kinds of time, I simply just couldn't be sure it was over 140 class.
It happened well after legal shooting time the second time. I saw a buck, but had no idea at 120 yards exactly how many points it had, although I was quite certain it wasn't one I was going to take.
They would probably be ok for bird watching during the day. When I got them, I did look out in the distance and they seemed very clear and sharp at home during the day. These are an inexpensive pair of binoculars that would probably be fine for many uses.
I wouldn't recommend them for taking out west to hunt with.

A great binocular for the price.
I've been a birder now going on 25 years and have constantly upgraded when I was able to afford to. I now own a pair of Kahls 8X42 which are excellent binoculars and cost $900.00+ dollars. I took a chance on the Bushnell bundle knowing that when I owned a pair way back when they worked well for hunting. I received them today and after the negative reviews I had to check them out being I purchased them for a gift. Well let me tell you I ran them through all the adjustments checking out the focus adjustment for diopter on the right eye which is firm which some complained about there is no way a light bump is going knock it out like it was stated. They provide excellent light transmission on a cloudy day and they are crisp and very clear.
I bought these for my son and daughter in law so he could use them for hunting & she for birding. They do have a close focus of 8.2 feet and crisp & clear.
I picked these up on a Chrismas daily deal and would recommend these binoculars to my friends even at there current selling price.
All said if these would of been available 10 years ago when I purchased my Kahls I would of chosen the Trophy XLT 10X42.

these were almost half the price of the 7S and the strap included in the Bushnell bundle is very comfortable to wear
These are OK for the price, but I should have kept the Nikon 7S. I had them side by side and the image was clearer on the 7S. However, these were almost half the price of the 7S and the strap included in the Bushnell bundle is very comfortable to wear. The Bone Collector logo is very cool. These meet my needs.

Shout Out to Bushnell!
These are wonderful binoculars! My husband received them for his birthday last year & loves them. When a crack developed in the center pivot, I contacted the Bushnell customer service line. They gave simple instructions, along with a mailing label, to send the glasses to the Missouri center. A few weeks later, a brand NEW Bushnell Trophy XLT arrived. I'm impressed with this long-standing excellent American company that stands behind their products.

You can't go wrong with these binoculars! Love 'em!
Great binoculars particularly for the price. I am very impressed with how sharp and bright they are!
The covers on the big end are loose, but if you put them on so the caps fall forward and are attached from the underside of the binoculars they are perfect because they fall out of the way when you are looking through the binoculars, but easily are snapped back into place when you put them away.
Speaking of which, if you put them back in the case with the small end going in FIRST, then the covers on the big end stay on and in place.

Prior 2-Star Review was withdrawd, BUT is now VALID.
I have now been using (trying) this produce for over a year for nature viewing and general viewing. The product has unacceptable focus and does not view general object that are about 100 yards. It is impossible to get a clear focus of any object much more than 30 yards distance. It was a waste of money. Do not have a solution, but it anyone wants to buy this Binocular, you can have it at 50% off! Personally, I will try a different brand than Bushnell, that used (40 years ago) to make a better product.

Spent 2 weeks in Yellowstone and Grand Teton parks and used these extensively. Amazing image clarity. We were picking out mountain goats on cliff faces that others were only finding with higher magnification spotting scopes. Outperformed all other binocs used by folks in our group. Extremely pleased with these. Can't wait to use them for hunting this fall.

A gift for my son-in-law, he has been quite pleased. I really chose wisely with these binoculars. An arborist, he often has a bird's eye view of the surrounding wildlife and scenery. Lightweight enough for him to pack, he uses them regularly. Any lover of the outdoors will love these binoculars. For the price, the quality is amazing.

Quit wasting time and buy already!
Quit wasting time and buy these already - these binoculars are an amazing deal. The non-fog lenses are great and the sight is crystal clear. They are a little heavy, but for the quality and price - you can't beat it.

Great Binocular for a great price.
I've been looking online for a couple years. This was the first set that caught my eye. Especially the price!!!
I'm not a hunter but I love the woods. This is an excellent binocular! Crystal clear view at any distance. Quick focus too.
The eye cups were confusing at first but like a guy I didn't read the booklet on them either.
I have an old Bushnell binocular that were good but these blow them away.
