    A long time ago I went into a local Ritz camera store and tried out binoculars that were about $100 - ended up with Nikon for about that price. They were compact and did the job. Do you have a store you can go in and try some binoculars at? I really think that's the easiest way to go, if that's a possibility for you. They usually have binoculars at camera stores, birding stores, outdoor-type stores like Academy and Dick's, etc.

    Thanks for all the responses. I ended up going with a Burris compact set. 8x power x26. I found a gunstore clearing out alot of its stock at below cost and bought mine for $67 shipped priority. If they work out, ill prob get another set or 2 for gifts.
    The model # i got is a 300162.
