When I was asked to write a review for Alpen Optics I was excited because I know they build high quality products and have great service. I waited patiently for the binoculars to arrive and was a little surprised because I didn’t remember that they were going to be bright pink! I got to looking at them and was glad when my son walked into the room and turned up his nose at the ‘girly’ color. This meant he would leave them alone! Yippee!

At closer review, I realized that they had a pink, breast cancer ribbon on them. I found out while reading the material sent with the products that Alpen gives a portion of the profit from each Alpen Pink Series binoculars to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
The Alpen Pink 8X25 Compact binocular has a wide angle field of view (430 ft.) and multicoated optical system for brightness.
They also feature fold down rubber eye cups, rubber coating for a firm grip and durability, BAK4 optics, a carrying case, neck strap and cleaning cloth.
The Alpen Pink 10X42 binoculars are waterproof and fog proof with phase coating for superior image contrast and clarity.
I spent last weekend elk hunting and while looking for the elusive bulls, I was able to keep up quite nicely with my guide who had a more expensive set of binos.
He was very impressed with my Pink 10X42 Alpens and I was very glad to have them!
Both the 8X25 Compact and the 10X42 models are lightweight and easy to carry and come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Oh, and my son? He got over the fact that they are pink and has no problem stealing them from me now.
