    I just bought a pair of Leupold 8x50 waterproof binoculars from my local Big 5 store in Moses Lake. However I also saw that the Astoria, Oregon stores had the same binoculars advertised. These are a cut or two above the standard Big 5 el cheapo binocs that you will find. The price here was $109.50 plus tax. They are not the small binocs but full-sized (although still not as big or as heavy as my Fujinon 7x50s from my merchant marine days). These are not the top-of-the-line Leupolds but they appeared to me to be very good and more than sufficient for most fishing, hunting and amateur bird-watching.

    Just FYI.
