Well, my Alice pack is getting a little full and space/weight is at a premium. Guess I kinda feel like this poor beast:

With the above situation in mind, what are the best rugged, waterproof, compact, lightweight binoculars suitable for foot-mobile bugging out??

I've got an old pair of Tasco's and a small monocular for back up. Look up some equipment on Brigade Quartermaster or Sportsmans guide. Then look up reviews. SG usually has some sort of awesome deal on surp.

What about a monocular? less than half the weight of binoculars and does the same job while leaving one hand free. That's what;s in my BOB.
I do have a pair of Nikon compact binoculars that are great but still theyre too heavy to pack along.
