    They will be ok. Don't expect to see much at change of light or dark days though. Will be fine during normal daylight hours to get you started.

    I haven't owned that exact pair so cant comment. The Bushnell's I did own were like looking through a cats bum compared to my current binos and they are only Leupold Mojaves. Is a bit more coin but worth it in the long run.

    I have a set of these and find them great. I paid US125 landed (us$110 + ~us$15 shipping) when the FX was good, so for $250 its good NZ price.
    Most retailers here sell them for $349.
    I too was after something cheap but can also do the job.
    Not used at dusk or dawn looking for animals yet, but a shit load better than nothing.

    You should be able to land the excursion HD's for about $200-220 from B&H photo video. Step or 2 up from the XLT.

    Yeh, I got mine from B&H.
    The hard part is always working out what you want without trying everything.
    On the XLT, the covers are a bit average which is a common complaint, but overall happy with the buy.

    I have a feeling i got the same set as you are looking at for free with some drench a few years ago. Definately not worth 250.
