    Burris usally makes great binoculars and they will last but they also arent that expensive.

      Bushnell Trophy, Excusion and Legends can be found on ebay for 50-200. I just watched a pr of Legends go for 60 a few days ago, great glass with the raincoat. Nikon and Leupold will cost a little more but are great binoculars. Swift is a good brand, one of the best pair of binoculars I've owned where Swifts that I paid 20 for at a garage sale.

          Nikons are great, and I have heard good things about vortex and believe they have some cheaper models.

            Bushnell is about the best that is reasonably priced, I have an old Bosch & Lomb Navy surplus that someone gave me as a kid ( almost 70 Now) That is superior to most that are made today. (JMNSVHO) Except Zeiss Or Leica.

              This is a very good one, BUSHNELL has bought the Bausch & Lomb plant I was not aware of that.

                Nikon's top end binoculars are pretty good as are top of the line Bushnell'. All of their mid-priced and entry level binoculars are junk. I am not aware of any binocular worht taking home with an MSRP under $300 or so. "Good" and "cheap" are mutually exclusive in the optics world. I would find the best binoculars that suit your purpose in a proce range above what you have budgeted and then shop like crazy until you find them at a discount. In this economy, everything goes on sale!

                  It all depends on what you consider to be "too expensive". I have found the Alpen binocular brand to be of very decent quality. I purchased a pair a few years ago at Walmart for around forty bucks. They are obviously not the best binocular optics on the planet and are certainly not the worst. I think Alpen would be a good start for you.

                      Check out Cabelas' binoculars. Good features without the brand name mark-up.

                        The vortex are a wonderful set of binoculars they mamimize everything so clear and the fine tune adjustments are easy to adjust. I have the 10X42's and they wont break the bank. I found mine on DNR land and didn't have to buy them.

                        Lucky Find,huh.
