Excellent binoculars, just be sure you need them
on February 20, 2011
This is the armored versions of the Nikon Action 7 X 50 binocular, so most of the comments you read about those will apply to these as well. I have owned these for several years now and I have enjoyed them immensely. The field of vision is good, but not fantastic. Clarity is unbelievable. But where they REALLY excel is in low light viewing (see chart above on main page). I can easily see things in the dark that my naked eye just can't grab, and I have excellent night vision. Amazing how much I miss without these.
Why I say be sure that you need them is that you pay a fifty dollar premium over the Action 7 X 50. This buys you rubberized armor for bumps, water-proofing and fog-proofing. This also means you won't get condensation inside when going from hot to cold or visa-versa. If you get in and out of your car or house a lot, use binoculars outdoors in the mist or rain, or take them through brush, it's worth the extra money. If you look at things through your window or only in good weather, save your money and get the Action 7 X 50 or some other good binoculars.
In choosing a Nikon binocular, refer to the chart above on the main page to see what suits your needs. I didn't like the 7 X 35's, but they get great reviews, (I'll review them on their own page), so make sure you try them out first if possible.
