Droptine Binocular 8x42 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best customer service out there Sent my older Burris full field Bono’s in because of broken eye ups. They were close to 10 years old. Let me add here I’m rough on outdoor gear! I expected mine to be repaired and returned but instead I opened a new pair today! Took just over a week, so turn around time wasn’t that bad. The older set of Bono’s were great except for the plastic eye ups. The new ones seem the same except for metal were it was plastic before. The glass and function of the Bono’s are second to none. The glass is exceptionally clear, on the lines of Ziess, Steiner or Leupold

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Solid Bino's These are very clear and have a great feel to them. It's easy to use them with gloves and the texture helps hold them when wet. The twist up eye relief cups work so easy...especially in the cold. These binoculars will be a great addition to my outdoor adventures!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clear Couldn't believe how clear the image is. I specifically went in to buy another brand, but just the way they feel in your hands is a good reason to buy these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best budget friendly binos on the planet! I have been using the 10x42 droptines for a few months now and they are incredible! I’ve used them out west chasing elk as well as whitetail in the east, the 10 x 42 platform is a perfect all around binocular. Glass is clear, great low light performance, and I haven’t had them fog up once, even on 30 degree mornings while breathing heavy after hiking up the mountain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Forever Warranty" Burris absolutely does what it says it will do with their, "Forever Warranty". I sent them a pair of 10x42 binoculars that became hazy, optically. Keep in mind these glasses had served me well for almost 20 years. I returned them to their warranty department requesting repair or replacement, and received an excellent, brand new pair of 10x42 Burris Droptine binoculars, no questions asked. I have purchased a number of Burris optics over the years, and will continue to do so in the future. their products and service are excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super clear! Love love love these! After owning multiple sets of binoculars of different manufacturers I opted to buy a set of Burris, I could have saved myself a lot of money if I would have just done this first. Once I set the diopter to clear it stays there! My others always wondered around. Not these, clear everytime I bring them up! Easy to hold and they just plain look good. Awesome job Burris! A forever customer now! Gonna get my wife a pair of the 8 x 42's
