The whole marketing campaign for the new Nikon Ecobins ($200) is based on the fact that they are eco-friendly because they're made with earth friendly glass and contain no harmful chemicals, which is all good, but doesn't really mean a whole hill-a-beans when you're talking about binoculars...Ya know? What we're stoked about is the super sleek design that's water-proof, fog proof and corrects left eye vision imbalance so you don't have to squint with one eye closed at a time. It's also made by Nikon, so you know it is made with amazing quality and will last forever. All the eco-stuff is just icing on the cake.
