Leupold BX-1 Yosemite 8x30 Binoculars - $100 - Dick's Sporting Goods
I bought these Leupold 8x30 BX-1 Yosemite Binocular last year for my wife and she loves them. They are compact and light but provide crystal-clear viewing. They are on sale at Dick's Sporting Goods for $100.
Leupold 8x30 BX-1 Yosemite Binocular (Shadow Gray)
Bridging a comfortable middle ground between compact and full-sized, the Leupold 8x30 BX-1 Yosemite Binocular, in gray, is designed with smaller objectives and narrower interpupillary adjustment range so they can be comfortably used by children as well as most adults. To help offset the lower light-gathering ability of the smaller objectives, the Porro prisms are phase-corrected and the entire optical path is fully multi-coated; which improves light transmission, color rendition, clarity, and contrast across a field of view that approaches wide-angle.
Built for the trail, the Yosemite's optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and prevent internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes. The entire chassis is wrapped in a gray protective rubber armoring that provides a slip-resistant grip in cold or wet conditions. These binoculars are offered here with a case and shoulder strap.
