General use or travel binoculars are excellent to bring around for simple scenic viewing, nature or wildlife observation, camping, and travelling. As such, they should be compact and lightweight to easily fit in your pocket, bag, or luggage. Ideally, they should also be rugged, durable, and water-resistant to be used in different weather conditions.

In general, binoculars with a 7x or 8x magnification is sufficient for general use and travel, as anything greater will result in unstable images. Objective lenses of 25 to 35 mm will keep them relatively compact while maintaining a sufficient level of light-gathering capacity in the day time. If using binoculars in dawn or dusk, you would want objective lenses with 40-50mm range, but keep in mind that the larger the objective lenses, the bulkier the binoculars will be.

When choosing your binoculars, think also about how and where you plan to use them. Choose focus-free binoculars if you'll be sharing your binoculars with others, or if you'd like immediate viewing without the need for focusing. If using outdoors in unpredictable weather conditions, opt for waterproof or water-resistant binoculars to ensure durability and performance in poor weather conditions.
