These are our favorite set of bridge binoculars because they are clear, bright and produce a vivid image. They are also reasonably priced compared to other high end german optics we love.
Crab fisherman in the Winter North Atlantic or Bearing Sea probably want to upgrade to Steiner's more waterproof, durable and more expensive Commander pro series with it's pressurized nitrogen injected seals but, for bridge duty aboard ship, these are plenty durable.
Like their big brothers these Marine 7x50 Steiner binoculars also features fully multi-coated optics for excellent low light performance with a peak light transmission of around 88%.
