If you're looking for quality and reliability without breaking the bank, Nikon is one of the best in the business when it comes to optics. The Nikon 7x50 OceanPro CF WP Marine Binoculars follow that mold perfectly.
With the unique demands of a marine environment, the OceanPro binoculars work well with their 7x magnification and built-in illuminated global compass. You don't want to mess around with 12x magnification unless your boat is in flat clam seas. 7x magnification will allow you to quickly locate and identify your target even in rough weather. The built-in compass uses automatic declination in Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere locations and an integral scale for subject size and distance calculation. Nikon's multicoated eco-glass lenses provide crisp, bright images in an ever changing marine environment. The rubber armored, waterproof, fogproof, polycarbonate body is engineered to the highest standards and built to withstand the toughest of marine conditions.
Other great features of the Nikon OceanPro Marine Binoculars include quick and smooth focus control and long eye relief that combine to offer fast subject acquisition and comfortable viewing with eyeglasses. Also included with the OceanPro is a handy a marine-specific floating nylon lanyard which makes locating and retrieving lost binoculars easy. I've been a big fan of Nikon binoculars, rifle scopes and range finders for many years and you really can't go wrong with their products. Nikon also includes a Lifetime No-Fault Repair/Replacement Policy for Binoculars, Riflescopes and Fieldscopes for additional piece of mind.$299.95 MSRPwww.nikonsportoptics.com
