A customer came to our weekend outlet at the Waters` edge visitor centre looking for a set of binoculars with good quality optics, that was not just ideal for keeping in the car, but also lightweight enough for their daughter to use. The set they chose was the Helios Nitrosport 8x26 binoculars. As well as ticking the boxes above, they were also very easy to use and handle
