Sometimes, a scope or bins are not ‘practical’. I’ve wanted something to slip in my pocket, backpack or carry in hand luggage on holiday. Wanted it to have reasonable performance, but not to be too expensive as it may be prone to loss.

Bought one of these -

Suitably impressed, light, ergonomic, optics ok. Only observation - focusing ring a little stiff, although I understand why.

Sure they’re just a Far East clone of something and rebadged with typical western names. For about £30, though, I think they’re pretty good and not too expensive to lose.

Looks like they’re available from multiple outlets.

I have no attachment to the product or any of its outlets
