The steiner Champ 8×22 compact binoculars are ideal for hiking due to their ultra low weight of only 9.5 oz and 4.1 x 4.5 inch dimensions. Without doubt they are affordable with an extremely attractive retail price for a big brand name.
As with most Steiner binoculars, they come with winged eye cups to keep out stray side light, and in doing so increasing contrast. Despite the small objective lens, they will be more than capable in cloudy conditions.
Rubber armoured body for added protection. Close focus down to around 10 feet
