San Francisco Chronicle — August 1, 2010
“For peering into a condor's nest at Pinnacles National Monument, tracking a fiery space shuttle ascent or inspecting erotic temple carvings in Kathmandu, a good set of compact binoculars is a must... After 15 years and countless misadventures, my Orion SeaOtter Waterproof Compact Binoculars are still going strong - with nary a hint of fog in the lenses. The 8x24 model I own is apparently off the market, but Orion now makes a slightly brighter 8x25 version. These magnify sights eight times, which is fine for travel; make sure you have steady hands if you go higher... Having once dunked mine in Lake Tahoe, I can attest that they are indeed waterproof.”

You won't believe how bright these little guys are (of course, the loveable critters they're named after are pretty bright in their own way)! If you're in the market for a great pair of small binoculars that pack a big, bright punch, look no further than our SeaOtter 8x25 Waterproof Compact Binoculars. They yield a bright, high-contrast image that is far beyond what you might expect from a pair of compact binoculars, thanks to Orion's brilliant optical coatings.

Why lug around larger, bulkier binoculars when the SeaOtters are perfect for virtually all outdoor activities? At less than 4.5 inches long (4.25" to be exact), these conveniently sized binoculars are ideal for travel of any kind.

Featuring 25mm multi-coated objectives, the SeaOtter 8x25s deliver 8 power and a generous 7-degree field of view so you won't miss any of the action. In fact, you'll enjoy a 30% wider field than comparable binoculars at 10 power — excellent for birding, sports activities, wildlife observation and other viewing situations involving mobile targets.

Eyeglass wearers will especially appreciate the SeaOtter 8x25's great eye relief and retractable eyecups, which help to ensure that images appear just as sharp and bright as they do for those without glasses. A near focus of just 4 feet means you'll be ready for those unexpected opportunities to see nature up close!

Just like their furry aquatic counterparts, these SeaOtters are all about fun! Rain or shine, these affordably priced SeaOtter 8x25 Waterproof Compact Binoculars will keep you focused on all the action, even while you're floating in the water on your back!

Includes dust caps, neck strap and carrying case. Weighs less than one pound.
