Thanks for confirming that. A weight of 15.9 oz, if correct, for a 32mm quality binocular is very light. The 30mm Maven B3 is listing 16.25 oz. The 32mm Leupold Mojave lists 17 oz. The Sightron II 8X32 I weighed was 17.0 oz.

It definitely feels good in the hand Bruce....an overall well rounded binocular in terms of both optics and ergonomics. Now to test for any stray light issues.

I bought these last year, and absolutely love them, although I haven't really anything much to compare them against, so I'll be really interested in your review.

Gander,

I just started using them this weekend and I have to say I am equally impressed with the new Explorer WA EDs. Several optical areas that I really enjoy about this binocular. Will post more as time allows.

Rob will have both Traveller ED models with him at his optics events at Chew Valley Lake and Chesil Beach this weekend (3rd and 4th March respectively).

Cheers, Pete

Arrived with us yesterday and first pair when out the door within an hour of delivery. Obviously made a very good impression :)
