Predator 10x26 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but effective I actually purchased the Predator Xtreme 10x26 that was on sale, but I guess they are discontinued. I have not had time to use extensively yet. I took the bino's out back and was really amazed by the quality of the glass. I was not sure how well the view would be with 26mm objective lenses, but they worked very well. A lot brighter than I expected. The frame is small and light, which will be great for hunting and backpacking. I am highly impressed with the provided carry case. The only thing I would have liked to see change is the eyepiece design. I like the type that turns in or out for different uses, I feel the eyepiece can be too close. Great product from Steiner, I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT FOR MY APPLICATION I BIKE, I HIKE AND THESE ARE GREAT. STEINER HAS ALWAYS BEEN AT THE TOP OF MY LIST FOR PRODUCT QUALITY SO THIS LINE WAS AN EASY CHOICE FOR THE MONEY. SIZE, EASE OF USE AND VERSATILITY ARE EXCELLENT FOR MY ACTIVITIES. I USE THESE ON MY BACK LANAI ALSO OBSERVING NATURE AND THE WILDLIF AROUND OUR HOME, PERFECT FOR THAT WITHOUT THE WEIGHT OF THE BIGGER BINOCULARS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best binos I bought these 3 years ago. They are the best binos I have ever looked through. Nice and light carry them into the stand day in and day out. They are also nice for scouting. Will buy again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality for a pocket size binoculars Excellent quality for a pocket size binoculars, easy to focus with crispy clear vision, comes with a carrying case, strap and one top cover protection lens (honestly this cover top lens has a bad design). My complaint has NOT cover protection for the bottom lenses, I don't why is not included. Besides that, perfect binoculars for all activities. Waterproof and anti shock resistance and decent weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second pair of Steiner Binoculars I chose Steiner because I have owned a pair of Steiner 7x50 Marine binoculars since the early 1970's and have always been pleased with them. I decided I wanted to purchase a more compact binocular and never seriously considered another brand. I wanted both quality and still remain within a reasonable price range. Steiner had what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great optics excellent customer service I purchased my binoculars last year and they developed an alignment problem. I returned them and within 3 weeks I received a new pair, no questions asked. They are clear and sharp as well as lightweight. Perfect for hunting and bird watching. Great customer service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Predator 8x came highly recommended I thought the 10x would be better but I would prefer the extra field of vision of the 8x. rather than the 2x power, now that I have the 10x. Otherwise they are excellent. Took them first time birding with an avid birder he was impressed with the ease of focusing.

Are the Steiner Predator 10x26 binoculars filled with nitrogen? I need them to work in sub-zero temperatures. 

Asked by: Hog sniper
The larger 42mm-objective models feature the N2 Fog-stop valves, indicating they've been purged with Nitrogen. The ultra-compact binoculars such as 8x22 and 10x26 do not have this feature.

How does the Predator 10x26 differ from the Predator Pro 10x26?  I have loved using a friend's Predator Pro but it seems to have been discontinued.  Reviews of the newer model are more critical.

Asked by: Chas
They're essentially identical, the Predator Pro is an older model that when discontinued, was rebranded to simply 'Predator' and it received updated armor coating and nameplates.

How the CAT™ Color Adjusted Transmission works?, It only give great contrast between brown and green? . What happens if I hunt in fall season and in open country environment, where all is brown, if CAT feature would help me?

Asked by: mountainhunter
The CAT coatings were specifically designed to provide high contrast where there is little contrast, so the various browns will be more defined from each other, still assisting the user in discerning game from foliage.

How do I zoom in with it?

Asked by: wowowow
These are a fixed power binocular. Steiner does not currently manufacture a zoom binocular.

What is the eye relief of the predator 10x26? By the way, why don't you list eye relief in your specifications. This is important for eye glass wearers such as myself.

Asked by: MikeB
Unfortunately I do not have access to that kind of specification. Eye relief was removed from our specifications when the entire product line began using some form of collapsible eyecup (this feature was added specifically to enhance accessibility for eyeglass wearers.)

you say coating but is it single layer or multi layer coating?

Asked by: TexA
All glass-to-air surfaces outside and inside Steiner binoculars are fully multi-coated.

Are these bino's center wheel focus only, or do they have separate eye piece adjustment ?

Asked by: Muzzy 33
The left eyepiece has an independent diopter adjustment, but once set for your eyes, the center focus wheel is indented to be the only adjustment used.

Why is the best way to focus 10x26 Predator binoculars 

Asked by: Hamboe
You'll want to observe a target about 30y away, and focus the right side first. Once in focus, use the eyepiece adjustment on the left side to bring the left side into focus. Once both sides are in focus with each other, you can use the center focusing wheel exclusively to bring the image of both sides into focus.
