When you’re on the move and packing light, the Scout Series Compact Binoculars from Carson provide efficient optical quality in a small, easily packed size. The Scout Series binoculars are available in 3 unique sizes. The MiniScout (JD-718) is an ultra compact 7x18mm binocular that is small enough to fit inside the palm of your hand.

The Scout (JD-822) is an 8x22mm binocular that offers a little more magnification and a wider objective lens than the MiniScout model. Weighing only 6 ounces, the Scout (JD-822) is also extremely lightweight and compact. The ScoutPlus (JD-025) is the largest version of the group weighing 9.9 ounces but also offers the highest magnification at 10x25mm. A center focus knob on all 3 models offers detailed clarity adjustment, and the independent right diopter adjustment lets you fine-tune the device for surprisingly crisp viewing. All 3 Scout Series models all feature fully coated, BK-7 prisms for sharp, crisp and bright images.

Excellent for both kids and adults My 4 year old daughter has shown great interest in bird watching so I needed to find a pair of binoculars with decent optics, small enough for her hands, but not too expensive in case she breaks them. These are perfect. I was impressed with how good the optics are for being so small and how durable it is. They fold down small enough for her eyes and the focal adjustment isn’t too stiff for her little fingers. I liked them so much, I ended up buying a pair for myself as well.

clear, sharp and surprisingly bright for the size Quality control is the key in China optics. I picked up a few products before and was surprised at the quality. These are bright for their size, have a wide view, true color and deep contrast, and can focus to high resolution. Small, but they adjust to my eyes OK. Sharper detail than most ‘spy binoculars’, far less ‘haze’ than any cheap roof prism binocs. As long as there are good light levels, these are awesome for travel, birds, beach, street signs, and theatre. At this price, no stress to lose them. I may keep two around. No lens caps: just put them in a sandwich baggie, then the pouch. Lens saps are a pain anyhow. Should you step up to the larger Scouts? Dim light or dimming vision would justify getting 22mm units. Carson always exceeds my expectations. One little nit: the focuser was a bit slushy in action, making perfect focus tricky sometimes. After running the focus full range both ways 10 times this got much better.
