Need a pair of binoculars that are light enough to take anywhere, yet versatile enough to deliver reliable performance whether you're in wet or dry conditions?
The CARSON GS-718 binocular might just be the one for you. A powerful 7X magnification brings objects 7 times closer than your naked eyes can see. The large 18mm objective lenses gather more light, making a brighter image. At a mere 1.9 ounces, these versatile binoculars are suitable for backpacking, birding, sports events, stargazing, and pretty much any activity you might reasonably want binoculars for.
This is not a Binocular
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: This is not a Binocular but a Monocular. Mono, as in One optic unit, used extensively for people with vision problems. It speaks poorly of the marketing agency to get this wrong.
Other Thoughts: Looks nice, to bad that anyone who knows anything about optics will be laughing at the misrepresentation of the products description.

adjustable eyepiece focus?
Pros: small size
Cons: No way to adjust the focus, least ways not that i could figure out. According to the overview section this is supposed to feature an "adjustable eyepiece focus". Turns out, however, that it is fixed-focus eyepiece that's "always in focus for quick viewing" provided it is beyond minimum focusing distance.
Other Thoughts: These are designed for golfers to use to gauge the distance to the flag. I'm sure it is probably well suited for that purpose. It has little grid lines that you line up with the horizon which then give you the approximate distance to the flag. Unfortunately for me my intended purpose was to use them for closer in viewing in fine detail, a purpose for which it is unsuitable.
