Yosemite 6x30 bounces off rocks
 
I got my foot entangled in a root and fell on my face onto some fairly jagged rocks. Of course, the first thing to hit (with some force) were the Yosemites. When I eventually managed to get up, my first thought was for the bins. After wiping some muck off, I had a look through them and they were fine. In fact they seemed to survive completely unscathed. Quite impressive, I think, for a cheap pair of porros.

Michael,I dropped my 6x30 Yosemite on concrete from a small table and it made the trip with no problem. Maybe we got lucky.:-)

I'm fine, Steve; thanks for asking. The bins survived, the glasses survived and I survived. Just a skinned and bruised knee and some sore bits from being wrenched. My wife has already passed out of sympathetic mode.

"My wife has already passed out of sympathetic mode" don't you just hate it when they do that.:-)
