Binocular selection is a compromise. I've used 8x30 binoculars, which are lightweight, compact and easy to carry but lack the magnification and light gathering ability that I want. I've also used 8x56 binoculars, which gather so much light that they allow you to see reasonably well on a moonlit night. The downside is they're so heavy they feel like a brick around your neck.

Leupold Tactical Binoculars

The most unique feature of Leupold's Tactical binoculars is the rotating reticle. This allows people with different interpupillary distances to view the reticle horizontally, or to estimate range on targets that aren't perfectly level. Rugged and waterproof with a durable coyote brown armor coating.

The second set of Leupold binoculars I tested are the Tactical - Military 10x50 model. This set of glasses is part of Leupold's "Green Ring" lineup, meaning they are manufactured overseas to Leupold's design and specifications. The feature of the Tactical - Military model that caught my eye is the addition of a rangefinding reticle. I've used other binoculars with rangefinding reticles in the past, with mostly unsatisfactory results.
