I got mine from a company called 7dayshop.com. They are 10x42 waterproof / fog proof with neck strap and carry case - paid under 30 at the beginning of the year.
Great value for a first set of bins

10x50s are the optimum size to be held by hand without lots of shake, any bigger you need a tripod. The best (and lightest) to go for are usually 7x50s, they have a nice multiplication (7x) and let in plenty of light and have a good field of view at 50mm across.
