SPECIAL TRAVEL ISSUE | FAR OUT

A Sight for Sore Eyes

March 18, 2001

Sightseers, bird-watchers, opera-goers and anyone trying to travel light will understand the significance of the pocket-sized Raptor zoom binoculars. They weigh only 10 ounces (including case), yet zoom to 21-power at the touch of a button--which makes them ideal for sighting nearly everything, especially the high-flying birds for which they're named. The rose-colored lenses protect against UV rays, reduce eye strain and improve image contrast. They even have roll-down eye cups so that they can be used with glasses.
