Speaking of comfort, there's an easy-to-grip rubberized texture around the outside, and they offer an angular field of view of 6.2 degrees and a linear field of view of 325' or a thousand yards.

That's all packed into a set of binoculars that weigh just 652g and come with their very own carry case for protection and convenience.
