Product Description

Compact, lightweight and convenient, the Aruba’s waterproof, all-weather design makes these binoculars an excellent choice for boating or other rugged outdoor activities. Nitrogen gas inside the binocular eliminates fogging on internal lens surfaces even in severe conditions, including rainstorms and high humidity. High-index BAK-4 prisms produce a bright, sharp image with vivid contrast for detailed viewing. Rubber-coated body provides great shock resistance and a secure, slip-free grip. Internal center focusing provides enhanced waterproofing and a clean appearance.

      Comments about West Marine Aruba 7 X 50 Compact Waterproof Binoculars:

      I bought one pair and the lens fell out so I returned them and the new pair does not work either, the focus only moves one side, will return those too and get another brand. Most disappointing.

      Comments about West Marine Aruba 7 X 50 Compact Waterproof Binoculars:

      I use the Aruba 7x50 Binoculars for Boating & Fishing in any weather. At 29oz, there lighter weight than other Binoculars, so there's less strain holding them up, glassing for periods of time. The Bak-4 Prism lets good light transmission in (88%) for low light viewing as I tested them just before dark. The view is very clear. I really like the Interior center focus it's very conveniant. There waterproof, and I've used them in the wet, moist marine environment with no problems, and the rubber coating helps to protect them. I really like how the rubber eye cups where your eyes meet the binoculars twist up when your ready to use them, and back down when your done with them. Lens Caps go over them, and Tethered Lens Caps cover the other side. I bought the Aruba's on sale, and they also come with a very nice sturdy carry case ,with a rubberized hard shell for protection and a adjustable shoulder strap. The Aruba's also come with a neck strap. I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again. To me they were better all around, than the other West Marine Branded Binoculars
