    Need feedback: Nikon Monarch HG durability?

    I've said this elsewhere but some of the concern about durability with the MHG is due to the light weight and thin (or nonexistent) padding. If you took the exact same binocular and put thick rubber armor all around like the Conquest HD, it would probably be 100g heavier and feel more "rugged"...
