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.

take 8x30 apart in half for less weight.
