We were birding in TX recently and I was asking everyone about their binoculars. I found out that WI has Eagle Optics which sells lifetime warranty binoculars. We went today and I am totally impressed. We looked through a number of binoculars and surprisingly liked the ones that were low end. Lifetime warranty, fog and water proof, 18mm eye relief. Great for the money. I am tickled. We are planning a trip to Alaska later in the year and can't wait to try them out!
