Great Budget Binos
Barska Deep Sea 7×50 Waterproof Marine Binoculars

See all pictures

This product is something of a quagmire, in that, on the whole, they work pretty well. Their specs and performance at this price make for something rather attractive. When testing out a pair they seemed to give the same kind of viewing experience as the Hooway binoculars, albeit with a center focus knob, which is can be a mark in Barska’s favor.

But the construction feels less robust than other candidates. It doesn’t change the fact that most people will find using these spyglasses a delight, questioning why they’d spring for binoculars 2 or 3 times the price. Apparently service, support, and the Russian roulette factor explains it: there is a higher frequency of customers reporting defects. Still, these Barska Deep Sea binoculars are pretty good when they work, which–it must be said–is most of the time
