Does anyone have any suggestions on a small pair of binoc's for field trials?

What are others using?

I've always liked tghe Nikon Travellite series. They are resonably priced, small enough to fit in your pocket, and are a quality optic.

I agree, you do get what you pay for, but you don't have to empty out the bank to get a decent pair of optics.

I can recommend the Bushnell Custom Compact in 7X26. They are light weight and clear. I think run about $300 a pair. They were around $200 a pair until the bird watchers picked them as their official binos. I have used a set for 25 years for archery hunting and love them.
