Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for birding! These binoculars are used for birding, and they are so clear that I can see the smallest bugs flying around when spotting birds. A huge step up from my old 10X32 pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Love these binoculars. Crystal clear and feels so good in my hands. Feels substantial but light. Quick focus, bright and clear.

I bought a peregrine 10x42 about 14 or so years ago.  It’s a top-notch optic.  I’m going on an extended kayak trip on saltwater.  I know you offer marine binoculars, but will my peregrine stand up to the saltwater?

Asked by: Flyfisher
Hello, We would not recommend exposing them to saltwater if you can help it. You would likely be better with something designed for a Marine environment. The Marine, Navigator, or Commanders would be a much better option for a saltwater environment.

I am assuming that if you wear glasses the side projections can be removed. Am I correct?

Asked by: Grandma Kathy
The eyecups cannot be removed, but you can fold them down.

I purchased a 10x42 Perigrine 15 yrs ago for $900 and change. Why is the current price half of what I paid?

Asked by: Jhay
The new model didn't have an aluminum body like your old pair, and better cost efficient lens coating.
