I bought two of these Leupold Timberlines this Christmas for my wife and I to each have a permanent truck bino. I am totally spoiled by my Swaros and Leicas but for 110 bucks on this special these are fine for the purposes you spoke of. And they come with a harness pouch. I took mine on a couple hikes and they were OK. And they carry the standard Leupold lifetime guarantee.

Good luck with your search,

Theron 8x32's have been my home binos for years after watching a friend handle my Leicas all the wrong way.

I think mine are 2nd gen. The kids got them for me for Christmas. First thing I noticed was the good color rendition while watching birds on the feeder. My bino needs are simple, and these work very well, Vortex or not. I bought the Blue Sky 8x32 to cut weight while hunting, but without doing a formal comparison, the DB’s view is a bit better, I think.


What fresh Hell is this?

If you get a chance let us know how the DB and Big Sky compare. I am interested. Thanks.
