$10 is a fine price for a compact pair of binoculars that in all likelihood offer decent optical performance, especially at this price.

But I can't in good conscience thumb up this deal because it's obnoxious and borderline offensive for a company to slap a "US Army" label on a cheap Chinese import. And traffic in people's confusion that these somehow might be US Army - issue optics. These are nothing at all like the M-22 and M-24 Fujinons currently issued to US active duty military personnel.

At $10, there's no way these are even mil-spec.

If these were the exact same binos with a less misleading name, I'd give this deal a thumbs up. I'm not thumbs downing it either, but as marketed this product is one step removed from stolen valor.

You're right! Just more cheap Chinese garbage that likely won't very well or last beyond the warranty.

If 'wide-angle' doesn't matter a lot to you, then this should be good as well with 20x magnification and better reviews: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/barsk...Id=3682787
