I brought one quite many years ago and it's first time that I have monocular.
When I got it I wasn't sure how useful it could be. I have small hands with small build that makes difficult to find right size binocular. Before I only had XL ,L &S 3 different size binoculars regarding of weight and size I hardly ever used them.and I was sharing them with my husband whose over than one foot taller and more than 100 lb bigger than me. There are so many makers not really keeps in their mind of small people can not hold same weight than big people could.My husband seems to never really notice that I have issue of Size for everything. So he's not very care about this monocular what comment he had"too small to hold it steady"his hand size is Mens L-size,his pinky has no room-either holds it whole hand to block the sight or let his pinky stands up...probably,someone who has size large hand(mens size)may not really enjoy the view with this monocular.But the other hand,i'm sure that I'm not only one who has problems to find right smaller size normally.I couldn't walk mountain trail to carry something heavy hang on my neck and bounced on my chest wasn't courage me to used it.
This monocular !! It's Perfect for my needs-size is fits on my palms,fits in pocket.i wanted to use around house to looked up birds(not bald eagle 200 yards distanced instead detailed watching tiny chicks start learn to swim,looked huge Spider-mites damage top of tree high above the house or even indoor-tried to find my husband at shopping mall,hand written menu on the black board far from table or find crack on the cathedral ceiling...it's so easy to carry in pocket,a little bag so on. Maybe it's a little bit too small to look up the stars,but a little size offered a quite lot of thing more than what I thought to use Monocular for. Today I am going to order again-this Monocular is very Handy - handy enough to a handyman who hired to repair inside house snatched it but couldn't tell from outside(I am not make up a story.hope,that beloved one has been also loved by someone) that was only thing what I experienced unpleasantly.

I think binoculars would have been better for my use. I returned this item as it didn't meet my expectations. I thought it was well made but the inability to see clearly what I wanted to view wasn't worth the high price.

        I bought 6 monoculars - one for watching the backyard bird feeders, one for the car to read distant street signs and one for each of the four children. A monocular does not have the acuity of binoculars but it gives a quick, easy view.

          Comments about Mini Pocket Monocular:

          A hard to find close focusing monocular. However, as a small monocular it is difficult to hold it steady. If National Geographic can offer a BINOCULAR with similar close focusing capability I would buy one in an instant.

          Comments about Mini Pocket Monocular:

          I bought this monocular for use on vacations. I have a set of binoculars that are too hard to focus and use quickly. I used this recently to veiw an eclispe of the moon. It was extremly good, showing the curve of the moon which was not apparent without it. It is extremely easy to carry, can be dropped into a pocket. I'm very pleased with this product. Thank you for making it available to me.
