Absolutely fantastic.  The images were clear as a bell, free of any chromattic distortion, even at the edges.  Colors were incredible.  Without the binos, in the dense forests of eastern NC, there appeared to be no color to see.  But with these, there was more than you could imagine.  Depth of field was almost scary.  Glassing into the woods for movement was so easy and smooth.  I did not even want to look back through my Sightron SII.  I have looked through many a bino, before picking these and based on their perfromance and price, I was more than impressed in the field.  I truly do not believe I gave up anything compared to many binos, except for some extraordinarily high dollar models (Leica etc.).  But, even at near complete darkness, they were performing extremely well.  In addition, if a banged them once on a tree stand, I banged them 100 times and going throught the dense forest, as well as a hunting buddy placing them on the hood of a hot pick-up, did not faze them.  I only wish they came with flip up lense caps.  For the money they cannot be beat and you will have to spend alot more.

I forget the list price, probably around 350, but got them for a little less than 200 dollars at an established on line retailer.  Another reason for the post, meaning, not only to give a short review and heads up on a good buy, but to let SWFA know that this is another line of binos that are very good quality at a very good price, that they should think about carrying.  Kind of like the Sightron line of scopes.
