I am shopping for a pair of compact reverse Porro binoculars with a budget of $150. Do you have any recommendation from your personal experience? Thanks

No personal experience, just based upon others comments.

In that price range, my favorite pair that I own are the Bushnell Legend 8x26.  Fully multi-coated, hydro-phobic coated, well made, pull up oculars, nice rubber guarding.

Mine have served me well for years when the conditions were nasty.

Just my two cents.

Bushnell Custom Compact 7x26 is the best reverse poprro binocular I have ever seen by a solid margin.

ILya,
 
Looks like the Bushnell Custom 7x26mm won't be around much longer.

That's a shame.  THese are the only compact binoculars that I would be willing to own.  I've looked at just about every compact binocular out there (reverse porro and roof) and to me, this is the only one worth its price tag.
