In the former category, the Skygenius 8x21, Wingspan Optics NatureSport, and Asgens Mini are all relatively durable, general-use options for daytime operation.

After some deliberation, the Bushnell Powerview were also added; they aren't known to be the most durable, but they offer several powers at a low price point and are acceptable for occasional use.
