Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Cheap - Comes with a bag - Small, easy to carry - Feels solid: metal housing with rubber covering - Magnification seems okay to me.
Cons:
- It stinks! And the smell is not likely to go away with time. - Not properly aligned, the image is doubling, cannot be used for two eyes simultaneously. - Image is clear only in small central area, around it's blurry and distorted.
Other:
Add a few bucks extra and get one that does not stinks so much. Looks like the factory does not pay much attenuation to align it properly, so that it can be used for two eyes because of the double image effect. I was able to use it for two eyes by applying some force(twisting) to the binoculars, so that the image becomes normal. But it's really inconvenient to use them in such way. Maybe later i'll be able to alight them permanently, but considering they stink so much, i'm not very eager to get my hands on them.
Bottomline:
It's likely to be a waste of money. Look for a more decent one.
