We got interested in the Vanguard Spirit ED series several years ago and then we managed to test a 10x42 model . To be completely honest we weren’t impressed by its results – after going through all our procedures it barely exceeded a level of 110 points.

  • +

    shapely, slight and very solid casing,, slight brightness loss on the edge of the field,, sensibly-looking area near the exit pupils,, properly darkened interior of the tubes,, good quality prisms made of BaK-4 glass,, sharp image already from a distance of 1.4 metres,, lifetime warranty.

  • -

    weak transmission,, average colour rendering,, field of view narrower than in the specifications.

Ive been a bird-watcher for 55 yrs and currently live on a greenbelt with an amazing variety of field, perching, buteos and water birds. We are also on the Pacific flyway, so we get migratories thruout the year as well. Ive put up with $19.95 quality binos since i was 9.

I am not an expert, but these seem very good to me for low price compact binoculars. They have a much better image and are brighter than various cheaper compact binoculars that I have bought before. The case is a tight squeeze (a bit two tight).

These binoculars are undoubtedly compact if compared with 8 x 32 designs from other manufacturers. They balanced well in my hands and felt solid and confident. The hinge of the binoculars was smooth and easy to adjust to the width of my eyes; not all binoculars are.

Ordered these Wed evening and arrived noon Friday, great service. In that time the price has dropped £3! Only tried them briefly but they seem good, and small but rugged. Strap is a useful length, easy to adjust and case is very good quality. Like the design which allows folding to fit a pocket

very good quality & excellent value for money

Purchased a used set, but they are virtually new and am very happy with the performance, the ED glass does give better clarity and contrast than my old Helios Mistral set and I was very happy with those for the price.

Very pleased with this purchase. Very sturdy, lovely strap. If I have one tiny niggle, it's that the focus wheel is sensitive, and a small move can render it out of focus. It's different to the ones I had and it takes a little getting used to: niggle is not enough to merit a lesser rating.

Crisp and clear views regardless of close up or not. Absolutely the best for wildlife viewing; it is as if they are right in front of you! The size is just right. I like that it's waterproof so that I could use it in the rain.
