sub-$150 small/"travel" binocular recommendations for eyeglass wearers?

Any recommendations for lightweight, general purpose (not birding-specific) "travel" binoculars that work for eyeglass wearers in the under $150 range?

I was thinking maybe Nikon Prostaff 8x25 ATB?

Sounds like a good price for the used Pentax bins, but I don't think their warranty is transferable - best to just call them at (800) 877-0155 and check for yourself.
