With the help of rrroae, I found a good deal on a pair of Minox for my son's 10th Birthday. Thought I could take a chance on them.

These seem to be the German made binos. I thought someone else may want a pair and thought it may get more coverage here than on the campfire forum.


Minox BL 10x42 German binoculars

$399.00 reduced to $275 after the promo code

Enter Promo code - EB012913A

Hope this helps,

The total cost should be $275 after using the promo code!

Glad I could help. If I decide I don't like them, I can always return them.

Received mine today. Very nice. The clarity was great and low light was better than an older pair of gold rings I owned. For $275 they are exceptional. IMO.

It might be expired. Try googling Sierra trading post coupons.

Sign up for their Deal Flyer. You'll get multiple percent off offers a day, or so it seems.

UPS delivered mine Friday. I haven't had a chance to really try them out, but I did look around with them a bit after sunset, and spent some time with them identifying landmarks out of the airplane window while serving as "head navigator" of my pop's airplane during a trip this weekend.

Low light performance is quite good. The eye box may be a bit small for some but I found it perfectly useable. Clarity is really nice. Overall I'm quite impressed, especially for the price!

Mine should arrive today and I'm anxious to check them out. I'm in need of a backup pair of binocs and this deal was too good to pass up.

I have a pair of Kahles that are about to be sent in for service. They will likely be gone for a few months. So I ordered a pair of these as back ups when I saw this post last week. Figured they would make good "loaners" when my Kahles got back anyway. Wow, these things are nice! Much better than what I was expecting, especially for the price. Thanks for the heads up on this deal.

I received mine on Monday.
I really like these for the price. I have had a pair of older Wind River 8x32 roof prism binos for my truck and when I didn't want to carry my 8x42 Geovids.
The Wind River binos just got sold to a buddy of mine that can't afford good glass.

UPS driver finally delivered mine today.


Really nice glass. Smaller than comparable Alpha 42s. Very happy with this purchase.
