" ...  My wife loves them for their smaller size and ease of use. ... You are not going to put these in your pocket but it is possible they can hang from your belt if you really wanted to do that, but may be a bit big for even that.  ...  "

" ...  After looking and trying other binoculars that cost at least 2 times as much or more these were a steal.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It came with a nice neck strap that was easily attached to both the lens cap cover for the eye piece and the binoculars (thanks to a recommendation by one of the reviewers) The attached covers at the other end is a good thing to prevent loss however they are difficult to get fixed in position when I'm ready to put them away.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I have owned Leupold, Nikon, Bushnell and Barska binoculars over many years and the Wingspan Voyager glasses are truly amazing.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Used my wingspan spectator binoculars for the first time yesterday while at a wildlife refuge and couldn’t be happier. ... The binoculars provide great clear details, are easy to focus, and are light weight so I was comfortable having them hang from my neck for several hours.  ...  "
