These designed in Japan, made in China - Nikon 10x25 ATB (All Terrain Binocular) binoculars have the following features:

Multicoated Optics

Aspherical eyepiece lenses for distortion-free viewing

Lead and arsenic free Eco-glass

Fully waterproof and fogproof

Quick central focusing

Come with eyepiece caps, and a soft case.

10x power with 25mm Objective lens

Long eye relief

Compact and Lightweight

Rubber armor for positive grip

Bak4 prisms

25 year limited warranty

So what is good about these binoculars:

First, they are so light (at only 12.9 ounces) that one can wear them all day without even noticing that they are dangling around your neck.

The 10 power is of course handy when viewing game at a distance.

The rubber coating is of course going to ensure that they will take some abuse, and the hunter will not lose grip of them easily.

The adjustable eye cups are particularly handy for eye glass wearers with the 15.9mm eye relief.

Small enough to fit in just about any pocket, so can be readily avaiable all the time.

Available direct from Nikon for $139 here, also available from Amazon here at $129, B&H here for $125

What is less good about these binoculars;

Obviously with a 25mm objective lens, they do not compare to the Monarch 5 10x40mm binoculars, which are much brighter especially after sunset. Game at around one mile away which could be seen with a pair of Monarch 8x42 binoculars could not be seen with these 10x25's.

These binoculars are a great product for the back country hunter or other sportsmen for all day and every day use, needless to say they will not be the binocular of choice for the open country hunter which requires hours of spotting, but for the archer or other hunter where the use of binoculars is less continuous and strenuous on the eyes, these are a good option at 8 oz less and less than half the price of the larger 8x42 pair of Monarch 5 bino's, reviewed by this Examiner here last year
