Bushnell builds optics with foresight. Thoughts like, spend plenty of time on the water, and your gear will invest some time in it. The H20 series binoculars are O ring sealed and nitrogen purged to fully lock out humidity should you spill, take one overboard, or run in bad weather along the way. Rubber book with textured pads gives you grip in slippery situations. Multi-coated optics and premium quality BaK-4 prism glass maximize light transmission and image clarity. You will rapidly see how a little planning on the part goes a considerable way to amplify your adventures on and around the water.
The Bushnell H2O 8x25 Compact Foldable Binocular is 10.5cm long and folds down to fewer than 7.1cm broad. The model I tested weighed less than 290 gms. It fits in a cargo pocket and is imperceptible around the neck, particularly with the included strap. The field of view is 114 m at 1000 m. This is fairly large in comparison to bigger optics, and it's fine for tracking something in motion. Several Models to choose from. Bushnell has H2O models in this series, from 7x50 into the 8x25, that's the tiniest folding version. They all feature nitrogen purged bodies, which makes them impervious and waterproof to internal fogging.
They've roof prisms, which allow for compact, brushed optics and maximum light transmission. Do not confuse the H2O 8x25 Compact Foldable Binocular with cheaper products. These are properly aligned, rendering a 3-dimensional image and exhaustion. They've smooth working wheels and diopter adjustment.
