    Anyone have a good set of binos for under 100? I am looking for some to keep in the motorhome and just thought I would get some recommendations.:D

    I have a pair of cheap B&L's that work great. I mostly use them at the range, but have taken them on several trips also.

    With bino's, you typically get what you pay for. The Cabela's wind river line is a good binocular line that is pretty reasonable. The best pair of binos I have are a set my Grandpa gave my dad back in 60-something. They are beat up, but crystal clear. Recently I have seen some Russian military surplus binos that look identical to the ones from my dad, even the case they come with. I don't know if they're the same, but they can be had for around $100 or so, I think www.cheaperthandirt.com has them.

    Wind River's.
    They are some of the best I have ever looked through. They are just as clear as my other Lyca's which cost about $500:eek1:
    They are SUPER clear and just overall very well made.
