has anyone had any experience with the cabelas store brand binoculars? i bought a pair about 8 years ago and after much use and abuse the rubber piece on the center focus ring came off. i brought them to cabelas and they refunded my entire 300.00, how can you beat that? i was so impressed that i right then and there bought another pair. i am not an optics pro but the glass seems to be  decent quality, they have never fogged and they are durable as all heck. how durable? last season i dropped them out of my tree stand and i go quite high(over 20 feet) i was disgusted at myself and was sure that they were ruined to the point that i did not even climb down to get them. to my surprise when i did get down at the end of the night they were fine. the pair i own are called the 8x42 wp which i quess stand for water proof well i just thought i would pass this along

I have owned a pair of the 10x42 Alaskan Guide model. Very impressive optics. Definitely worth the cost. Resolution was very good as was the color rendition. Probably the only thing that I did not like about them was the click-stop focus adjustment. There were several times when I thought an extra bit of control would have given me a sharper image.

 

Don't quote me but I believe the optics are Fujinon.
