Pros

  • Crisp images
  • Minimal Color Problems

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Astronomy
    • General Looking Around

    Comments about Raiatea 7 x 50 Binoculars:

    In Florida the environment for optics is harsh and the sealed optics for these binoculars is a plus. I use them a lot in the field for astronomy and for general use and I keep them in the truck for whatever. Well recommended for the budget conscious and well recommended for those who want a quality image that doesn't fatigue the eyes.

      • Buoy Identification

      Comments about Raiatea 7 x 50 Binoculars:

      I keep these binoculars in my upper helm and at an easy reach. While navigating, my eyes aren't what they used to be so seeing buoys and making out demarcations are what I use them for as a critical need.

            Comments about Raiatea 7 x 50 Binoculars:

            Great binoculars and waterproof. 7x50 is the perfect general boating use lens. Allows for good zoom but not too much so it's unstable while moving.

            Haven't dropped them in the water yet, but I'm happy they are waterproof! They feel rugged in hand but aren't too heavy.

            Very happy the choice.

            So many dud reviews? - It's pretty good

            Comments about Raiatea 7 x 50 Binoculars:

            This product deserves more than 2.5 stars. I have owned a pair for 6 years and they have been flawless. Obviously well built and (most importantly) a crisp wide-angled magnification. THey are not compact steiners (sp), but they are a pretty good sturdy standby and way less expensive.

            Making me cross-eyed

            • No Fogging Problems

            Cons

            • Lense Cap Discs Fall Out
            • Lense Caps Won't Stay On
            • Not Aligned Properly

            Best Uses

            • As A Telescope

            Comments about Raiatea 7 x 50 Binoculars:

            These binoculars provide a crisp view, but I have to twist them really hard in order for the two lenses to line up. Otherwise they show a double image. Is it possible to have them aligned??? I bought them on sale.

            I have 2 pairs of these. I bought the first pair on sale and keep them in the boat. Bought a 2nd pair when they went on sale again to keep in the house or out on the beach. They operate well and have great clarity.
