All of the components work fairly well, except that the eye cup distance adjustment is a little too sensitive. When placing on the rubber eyepiece cover, it will turn/adjust them. You will need them set to maximum if you rest them against your eyes, or set to minimum if you wear glasses.
These are pretty good for birdwatching and low-light use.
For birdwatching, you want a low magnification such as 7-8, which will allow you to focus closely and have a large field of view so you can easily track movement. For night/low light use, you want the largest objective lens possible, to let a lot of light in. 42mm is fairly large for objective lenses (7x50 would be better, but you would have to switch to a porro-prism design which results in a full sized/heavy binocular.
If you want binoculars for looking at stars, I would suggest getting the 10x42 version as a minimum. A large objective lens and large zoom will help a lot. So you may want to consider a zoom binocular with a tripod. A telescope would be even better :3
These are 8x42, which is fairly uncommon, and on the large size for a BAK-4 setup. 8x is perfect for a large FOV and a close focal length (it's something like 9 feet to infinity). The large 42 objective lens is fairly large, which gives you good vision in low-light conditions, as well as further expanding the FOV. BAK-4 is going to give you the best quality, which is quite noticeable compared to other BAK prisms, or the cheaper Porro prisms.
I suspect that these are from the same Chinese manufacturer as many of the generic unbranded/fakebranded 8-10x48 BAK-4 binocs floating around, that run 60$ -80$ range. The company logo is a plastic sticker on a removable nut. The "outlandx" lettering wipes right off with your finger. Even if they are from the same factory, the pricing here is fair, and generally US based companies will do their own QC to weed out any of the lower-end units that will slip through with the cheaper brands. Re-branding aside, the overall quality is quite good. The housing is completely wrapped in a thick rubber shell. It's glued down fairly well and should provide plenty of durability. The lenses are clear, and they are sealed/waterproofed, so you don't have to worry about particles/humidity ever appearing in them.
You can mount it to a tripod if you wish, by unscrewing the logo cap.
The objective lens covers have a ring to hold them on to the binoculars, and are tight enough that they won't fall off when flipped down.
The eyepiece cover is flexible, and split on one side. You can easily tie a lanyard (like paracord) around the unsplit side, and clip that to the included neck strap, so you won't have to worry about losing it.
The included neck strap is fine, and will adjust short enough to let you carry these high on your chest, or low at your waist.
The included bag is is padded, and decently made. It has a clip-on strap and two D-rings. There is also a pocket where you can keep a small booklet, or the microfiber cleaning cloth.
Good quality images/views for what they offer
My 9-11 year olds enjoyed them and found easy to use.
Comfortable but a bit heavy
-They produce dark images - not enough light gets in causing quicker eye fatigue especially in the earlier mornings and twilight.
-Right eye piece is adjustable for custom visual fit, however it seems to easily go out of focus from one day to the next.
- Focus is not fine enough. I find it very easy to roll past my focus point and have to “back up” and refocus. I have very good manual dexterity and fine motor skills but still experience challenges getting to my image quickly.
I think these would make an excellent pair of binos for a kid interested in birding, possibly a new birder, or as an extra pair to loan a friend if your going to introduce someone to birding. BUT I’d be cautious and forewarn the user that these binos are a bit “tempemental” and adjusting takes a bit of rolling back and forth with. I’m in the market for a second pair of binos to keep by another birding window of my house and am hesitant to buy a second pair.
