If you are looking for a great pair of binoculars, Leica has updated its optics line with a modernized NOCTIVID binoculars. These are very desirable for sporting uses with excellent color and focus. I have never used regularly the Leica Binoculars, but I have used the Leica hunting scopes and it is hard to beat the detail and color accuracy.
A pair of binoculars is surprisingly useful and a tool I think every man needs. I have a great pair of vintage Binoculars that were my Grandfathers, but I am always worried to bring them out in the field. The new Leica NOCTIVID are both durable and functional in design with a 12 glass element setup.
If you are in the market for a set of spotting optics I know I am biased but you should check them out. I am looking forward to a demo at the local Bellevue Leica Store myself and would love a pair as a gift for the holidays.
