It is OK

 

The quality is OK. This binoculars is so tiny and light weighted. It looks like a toy for a kid, but the view is fine.

Product Specifications

The new Magellan WP I series of binoculars is a high-performance, compact, easy-to-use, water-proof, fog-proof, and dirt-proof line built for relentless visual performance in severe outdoor conditions. The binoculars come in two magnifications, 8x25 and 10x25, and combine superior visual performance with minimal size and weight, making them a must have item for any outdoor enthusiast. There is definitely no trade-off between image quality and durability with the Magellan series, as all lenses and prisms are fully multi-coated for maximum brightness and contrast, and high refractive index BaK4 prisms assure bright, crisp, edge-to-edge imaging. The Magellan WP I series of binoculars offer superior eye protection with Olympus special optical materials used to reduce the transmission of harmful UV rays. A built-in dioptric correction that adjusts to each user's individual eyesight ensures that viewers will always see action clearly. The Magellan WP I binoculars offer long eye relief, which refers to the maximum distance from the eyepiece lens at which the entire image can be seen. The high number ensures that users will be able to see the entire image through the binoculars even with glasses on. The Magellan WP I binoculars are extremely compact in size, yet durable enough to withstand the elements and the needs of mountain-climbers and water-sport enthusiasts alike. The WP I series are lighter, smaller, and therefore easier to carry than the original Magellan EXWP I series, making them ideal for mountaineering, kayaking, and other outdoor activities where gear must be kept to a minimum. The new Magellan WP I series are fully water-proof to a depth of one meter, perfect for use during any outdoor, on-water endeavors. The binoculars' hermetically sealed and nitrogen gas-filled lens system assures waterproof, fog-proof and dirt-proof performance under extreme weather conditions, and prevents mold from growing during long-term storage.
