Product Description

Our most affordable binoculars are impact resistant & marine tough!

Precision-ground optics at a great price make these a great choice for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. They’re equipped with the same outstanding optical-correction technology found in our higher-priced models. That means you’ll get minimized field curvature, less image distortion and a greater percentage of ambient light reaching your eye. Huahine Binoculars feature water-resistant, rubber-armored housings and are nitrogen gas-filled to prevent internal fogging. BK-7 prisms deliver a sharp, bright image. With convenient center-focus and 27.4mm eye relief that eyeglass wearers will appreciate. Field of view is 350' @ 1000yds. 80% light transmission efficiency. Excellent for use on small boats, inflatables, canoes and kayaks or as a backup to your primary marine binoculars. Case included.

Features:

  • Lightweight and easy to hold steady
  • Minimal field curvature/distortion

These are a good set of binoculars to be used where they are going to get banged around, rained on, damaged and finally slide over the side. They are adequate for non extreme conditions, but the beauty is in that they are inexpensive to replace. Mine spend a night in the rain on deck, and fogged the next morning. I should have been more aggressive to open them up to air out, before discoloration of the optics occured.

I'm currently on my second pair. If they hit an objective and not very hard, the lense objective(extension)become loose and misaligned (double vision). The threads actually slip and you have to unscrew and rescrew in hopes you can properly align. Thankfully, West Marine exchanged them for me.

    I have had a variety of binoculars but wanted one that was waterproof and could just keep in my boat. Used it but never could get it to focus looking through both lenses

      These glasses spend the day on the dash of an off shore center console. Lots of beating around and salt spray. For the price I don't know you can beat them.

      Not durable enough for marine use

      Comments about West Marine Huahine 7 x 50 Binoculars:

      I agree with others who complained about lack of durability. I had the same problem with malalignment of the tube housing the objective lens. It will easily start to become unscrewed from the body admitting water and distorting vision. Despite good optical properties, long eye relief, and reasonable price, had to buy new binoculars on voyage to Alaska. Pay a bit more for a quality product. Cannot recommend this item.

      Not for on the water use

          Best Uses

            Comments about West Marine Huahine 7 x 50 Binoculars:

            Inexpensive with good optics, BUT don't expect to use these on a boat. They will not tolerate even being near water. Once the H2O penetrates, and it will with even a splash, it will take fours days of hot sun to cook the water out. These are NOT MARINE grade hence the low price. I don't think they should be sold in a marine store and certainly not be a West Marine product.
