" Joining Mike on many backpacking trips over recent years i have found trekking poles to be invaluable especially going off trail ( which my husband loves to do ), tackling boulder fields and fast flowing rivers. I packed the Leki Cressida’s on our 2018 Norway trip and loved them especially on those really steep descents off the mountain."

By doing this when you open the lid it flips away from the opening. "

Offering superb optical quality when weight and size need to be kept to a minimum.

Mike says...
" I have just recently purchased this monocular for my trekking trips. Wanting something that was lightweight, easy to use and readily available that didn't cost the earth I plumped for the MZ as it fitted all the criteria. I have just used it in anger on a trip to Wasdale and found it to be excellent in all aspects I was looking for. The zoom is smooth and efficient, the clarity is good for the price and the 15x17 magnification is more than I am used to with my normal binoculars. It sits well with all my other kit and will be taken on all my lightweight journeys in the future. "

Good light intake at dawn and dusk, especially in the forest, I have these in my vehicle constantly now and on day long wildlife trips. Cracking bit of kit and not too expensive. "
