Wildlife XP Compact 8x24 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All round binoculars for travellers Have a pair of 10x50 binoculars which are great for night sky or birdwatching but heavy to carry when our hiking or biking etc. The XP 8x24 are perfect for our need. Wide field of view but still sufficient magnification for general landscape and birdwatching duties. Liked the waterproof and fog proof features. Essential in hot and humid countries. Rugged construction and 30year guarantee were major pluses in choice. Have to say the optical quality is fanatastic.

We would recommend taking a look at the 10x26 Champs or the 8x22 Champs. They are our most economical pair of compact binoculars.

My Steiner Wildlife 8x24 binoculars need new rubber parts to separate the oculars from the lenses of my glasses. The rubber has become brittle and has split off. Where can I have the old rubber parts removed and new parts installed? Thank you.
