The Kite compact has been around for many years. It is the favorite instrument of many nature reserve visitor centres all over Europe. It is your personal window on a closer world when you go hiking, are on safari, etc… Suited for any kind of use and any kind of user, but most appealing for those who do not wish to carry big binoculars or just have small hands.   The market is full of many cheaper products that are similar in size, but none of them offer the quality level of the Kite compact. The optical quality is more than excellent, and this should be a fundamental aspect for binoculars of this type as they are often used by children whose eyes are still in full development. Not only do cheap made optics offer a poor and unbalanced image, they can harm children’s eyes in time. Mechanically, the Kite compacts are as well built as any other pair of full sized Kite binoculars. In todays thro-away societey, it is most important to know that this instrument can be your companion for many years, and can be repaired and serviced if necessary. The image is well defined and rich in contrast, while the precise focus wheel will allow you to obtain a razor sharp image.

"compact 8x25"


Très bonnes jumelles, recommandées par 3 amis qui en sont très contents.
Très bonne luminosité, pratiques pour les avoir toujours sur soi étant donné leur taille compact.
