At the Northern Optics weekend display at Barton Upon Humber a customer was looking for a quality compact monocular as a gift idea. After trying a Helios Rapide 8×25 monocular he had no hesitation in purchasing.
There is really no other monocular in this sub £15 price range that offers multi-coated optics and quality build. Also unlike many budget monoculars, they feature twist eye cups and long enough eye relief to be used with spectacles on. Close focus ability is also a major plus point
