I would like set of 25mm binocs with 6 power ideally. However I haven't found any yet.
I did find a 8x25 Hawke that has 357' FOV and only weighs 10 oz. It is the HA-3850.
I would say 15 oz is the absolute max weight that I want and wide FOV is always preferable as long as they don't get too fuzzy on the edges.
I want the binocs to be fully multi-coated or better.
I do not want to go down to 20-21mm as I want reasonable low light performance.
 
Any other suggestions/opinions would be appreciated.
 
tks
 
Dennis

I've got a Bausch & Lomb 7x26 Custom Compact that is probably the best of the just slightly bigger than pocket size glass.  Top flite optics.  Costs about $250.  It is now known as the Bushnell Custom elite e2 7x26.  If there is a decent 6x25 currently manufactured, I am unaware of it.

The Bushnell Custom Compact was originally a 6x26. 

Everyone clamored for more power so; eventually it was changed to a 7x26.  I would be very, very surprised if they ever went back down to 6x again. 

I also would be rather surprised to see anyone else offer a 6x2* pocket binocular.
