Don't buy permafocus binoculars. They force your eyes to adapt to their single setting which causes headaches and eyestrain. The focuser on a binocular is the most important part, and it's not hard to use...

I have these. A little on the big side and I wouldn't want to use them for long periods of time. But they are perfect for spying on the neighbors. I can just pick them up and look without having to fiddle with the focus. I have smaller, nicer pairs with focus adjustment for when I go peeping.

They seem to have great reviews most places I look. Read a lot of reviews and only one person complained of eye strain. Maybe it affects some people and not others, like VR. Some people can play 10 hours straight with no problems and some people can't play 10 minutes without getting a headache..

Has anyone tried these with a kid? Arw they too big for an 8 year old, or do they fold down enough?

The reviews on BHPhotovideo are excellent, so I decided to pick them up.

These are auto focus, cons are closer objects will not be in focus and you have no way for setting the focal length .

What does Weather Resistant mean if they are not Water/Fog Proof?

I imagine water proof means they could be submerged without water entering, water resistant probably means that rain wouldn't penetrate.

Thanks, they will work perfect for the boat as long as they don't go swimming

I could not disagree more. I had a decend set of fixed focus binocs for years and absolutley loved them. Unfortunately my 3 year old decided to leave them submerged in the dogs water bowl and they were ruined. Focus adjustable models are great as well but are less effecive when trying to get a quick look at a target that may be gone by the time I adjust focus. Smaller kids also have a hard time adjusting focus making permafocus ideal.
