Check out the leica's...10x25's are great for packing and lookin. Only thing I could wish for would be lens covers.

You could give the Zeiss 10x25s a look, small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, good enough glass to see just about anything you need to. I'm really liking mine.

Thanks I have been looking at those two choices. I like both of them.

If you'd like to save a bit of cash but keep the awesome glass give IOR a look-see. I've a few of their scopes, mostly because I can't justify the exorbitant prices of some of the other brands, and really ain't missing a thing.
Good Luck!

For 21 years I have been using a pair of Leica compacts and they are as good today as the day I bought them. I take them with me on all my hunts and business trips. I thought they were expensive when I bought them, they have been the cheapest binocular I have ever owned! NJS

How about a semi-compact 16-ounce Burris 300186 Signature Select 10x32 for <$260.

Burris 300186 Signature Select 10x32 Semi-Compact Binoculars $257.95, 300186 SHIPS FREE on orders $29.95 & up

It also comes in 8x32 for <$250.

Good luck!
