Hooway 7×50 Waterproof Fogproof Military Marine Binoculars

See all pictures

Hard to imaging getting more for your buck. I recently used these sailing a vikingship in choppy waters without a GPS, and therefore needing them for navigation. In a bucking and rolling longship these binoculars worked just fine. Contrast is not as sharp as the Nikon or Steiner models and low-light optics less impressive, but identifying buoys and checking out playful convoys of porpoises along the way worked just fine.

These Hooways have a rangefinder and compass and can tolerate a shock and occasional awe in the rough and tumble seas. This matches the yellow æsthetics of the Hooway design. Not everybody’s cup of tea, but it makes them easy to find in the water at dusk.
