Viking Kestrel 8x32 (2018)

Evening all,

I am in the market for some 8x32s (or similar), and on spec the Kestrel seems to meet my budget and specification requirements. I am hoping to go and try a pair next week, as my local stockist has Hawke and RSPB in stock as comparison. I was just wondering if anyone owned any, and how they found the durability/wear/longer-term use.

Thanks in advance

Jetcage.

I tried the 8x32s today, but as they weren't that much smaller than the 8x42s, I went for those instead.
They feel lovely. Solid construction. Nice bright image with crisp definition. Very happy.

Glad you found a pair that suit you.
