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.

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.
