Binoculars are great tools that can be used for a variety of purposes. However, some binos can be expensive and heavy. The Vanguard Vesta Compact 21 Binoculars offer users a bright and clear viewing for less than $50.

Available in 8X and 10X, both of the Vesta binocular models feature a 21mm diameter objective lens. This provides a good field of view at all usable distances. The Compact 21 also features optical quality glass and a roof prism design.

They also come with Multiguard multi-coating technology for resolution, clarity and light transmission. Vanguard used a lightweight aluminum housing for durability. Additionally, the center focus allows user to fine turn for detail. Even better, the company provided a diopter adjustment on the right lens for customizing viewing.

The Compact 21 binoculars weigh a mere 6.8 ounces. However, both provide a wide field of view. The 8x offers 371 yards of view at 1,000 yards, while the 10X provides 303 yards of view at the same distance. They also have twist-out, lockable eyecups for comfortable viewing, both with and without glasses.

Additionally, Vanguard provides a protective carry bag, wrist and neck strap, protective lens, eyepiece covers and a lens cloth in the package. They come in four different colors — Black Pearl, White Pearl, Champagne and Rosaline.

Whether looking for casual viewing optics or an affordable backup, these binoculars provide an affordable option for long-distance viewing.
