I know the mantra of buying the best glass you can afford, but I am looking for an entry level set of field binoculars that are compact enough for hiking and hunting but have good clarity for the money. Main usage would be hunting/hiking and keeping in the truck for taking in views and wildlife.
I have been looking at some of the Nikon and Leupold models. I'd love to be in the sub $250 range, so I am open to any other brand as well.
