Navigator-Pro-7x50-compass

Who can honestly say they’re completely happy with how their binoculars function offshore, especially in marginal conditions? With a pair of Steiner glasses on board you need never worry about picking out that headland or distant buoy. The company’s new Navigator Pro line includes four different models, offering either 7x30 or 7x50 performance with or without an internal compass. Waterproof to 15 feet, the binoculars’ “Sports-Auto-Focus” system keeps images razor sharp from 20 yards to infinity. Navigator Pro binoculars also come with Steiner’s Heritage Warranty, which promises to repair or replace your optics if they are damaged or defective—at no charge.

From $299.
