Predator 8x22 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected These binoculars on clearance from Sierra suprised me. I own another higher end Steiner binocular model and expected quality but had no idea a compact model (under $90) could be so good. Buy them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good product but the customer service is pathetic I called up due to a failure on a predator series binocular. I was told there would be a 70.00 fee!!! Then when I asked to speak to management, I was told that person was on vacation. I was told that no one else was available to speak to me. Do to this interaction, I will never purchase another Steiner product again! I am a 17 year veteran and on a very limited income. As well as currently I am under treatment for Pancreatic Cancer. I will send my information to my VA representatives as well as the wounded Warrior project

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I currently own two pair of Steiners. Merlin 10x32 and Wildlife 8.5x26. Love my Merlins they perform very well! But thats a different story on the Wildlife. While I love the starp that came with Wildlife the performance is terrible. Never can get both lenses to focus the same. When you think that they are close it wont hold its setting. So I decide to go out and by another small pair. I settle on the Predator 8x22. Just got them in today from the dealer. First I noticed the lenses were dirty. Second the protective eye cups were to big. Didnt get any lenses protectors for the bottom lenses. Third the strap included just isnt worth the amount of money paid. Fourth the Predators didnt have any shrink wrap around the package. Which leads me to believe how many people handle them. Seroiusly thinking on sending them back where i bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best *(ultra compact) binoculars on the market The best *(ultra compact) binoculars on the market since no smaller size available, glass (optical) quality excellent, body very rugged and water resistant. Only one my personal concern - I don't like these rubber shades on viewfinders - but it's easy to fold them back and problem solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, so light so small yet so clear These are a great buy. Steiner does it very well. They easily fit in the pocket of my cargo shorts which is nice when I go on walks. These are in my vehicle everyday of the week.

What is the difference between the predator and the predator pro?

Asked by: Josh
The latest version of the Binoculars are the Predator. The Predator Pro's are optically identical, but have rounded eye cups; the Predator binoculars have the winged eye cups to block out stray light and reflection- they can not be fitted onto the Predator Pro's

I own two pair of Steiner binoculars, and both are not usable. My best binos, Predator 8x30, are prior to the poor prism design; left eye piece popped out while hunting. The other is Safari model 8x22, can't get focused.What is your return policy?
