The Bad and The Ugly

This is, in my opinion, an excellent binocular.

These binoculars out-perform similar binoculars in this price range.

There is very little bad to say about these binoculars.

At just over $300.00 USD, the Nikon Brand, and all the included accessories, you simply cannot go wrong with this purchase.

Thoughts and Conclusions

Binoculars were one of my first pieces of technical gear that I owned as a youngster and for this reason, I am a big fan of binoculars. They are easy to carry in the bino-harness and easy to operate.

Do not hang them down your neck. Get a Bino-Harness. In this case, the bino-harness is included.

This product comes with a bino-harness and there are many models of bino-harnesses available on the market. In addition to simple harnesses, there are also harness and case combinations that you may like as well.

All outdoor enthusiasts and Nature lovers can benefit greatly with the use of binoculars. Binoculars extend your visual reach of Natural beauty and this is a great advantage in any wilderness setting.

Binoculars can also be used at sporting events, music concerts and for other activities where extended visual reach is an advantage.

These Monarch 5 Nikon Binoculars are very popular for Birding and observing other life and natural forms in the outdoors.

In Conclusion

The Monarch 5 by Nikon are the latest pair of binoculars that I have purchased for my wilderness adventures. They are light-weight, have an armored body and very clear lenses.

The waterproof and fog proof lenses are treated to resist scratching. A lens pen and a bino-harness will make a great addition to these binoculars.

Once you wear a bino-harness, you will never want to be without one again.

These binoculars give very sharp images in low-light conditions.
