Yeah you can forget about freeholding it. You gotta press into a tree or other firm structure to hold steady.

Another thing to keep in mind is that depth perception is extremely difficult with a monocular. That's not too important for sighting things at very long distances (e.g., the horizon or stargazing), but for anything relatively close, it can be a real drawback.

Resurrecting an old thread as I'm hoping to find a light but quality monocular or binocular to assist with route finding.

Any thoughts on this:

That is what I carry when I need to bring routes or something else in closer. Not too bad, for what it is. Go check it out at REI and see how you like it.

Skp that one and get the Brunton Lite Tech Monocular for $3 more. It is waterproof.
