Designed by VW Design, this elegant instrument is fully waterproof, very compact and lightweight. It features individual focusing, which limits its usefulness as an outdoor binocular somewhat. Sharpness and contrast are okay, the field of view is average, image brightness and ease of view a bit below expectation.
