The tried and true Steiner 8x30 Military/Marine Binocular is one of their all time classics, a favorite compact optic of both enthusiasts and government organizations worldwide.  Its performance in any light is great, and given its small size and relatively low weight it is practical to carry almost anywhere.

The 8x30 "M/M" has fully multicoated optics along with Steiner's revolutionary "Sports Auto Focus" system that gives expansive depth of field from 60' (18.3 m) to infinity once set to the user's individual eyesight.  Eye relief is a lengthy 20mm for comfortable extended observations, even when wearing eyeglasses.  It has dual-density rubber armor for both great protection and tactile feel, along with soft silicone peel-down type eyecups.

The 8x30 Military/Marine is guaranteed to withstand bombardment from water jets at multiple angles for five minutes without leaking.  It is also tested to withstand a 30°F temperature change without suffering internal fogging.

      Excellent Compact Binoculars

      By CLC

      from Southeast Alaska

      Comments about Steiner 8x30 Military/Marine Binocular:

      I work on whale watching boats in Alaska and we all use these particular Steiner 8x30 Military/Marine Binoculars to spot for wildlife. They are great value for the compact size and their awesome viewing. Being Waterproof and fog proof are very important too. You won't be disappointed.

      Excellent piece of kit. Familiar with brand from service and civilian version is equally as good. Bought in B&H NYC as it's cheaper than in Ireland, when available. Invaluable as coaching aid - 9mil holes easily vis at 25m.
      Good dark night/moon glow capability. NOT designed as NVE, though some expect this ability
      All in a neat OD package !

      Can't think of 1 con

          Good quality bino's. Lightweight and fairly compact with good image quality. Not so good at dusk / night due to the smaller 30mm lens. Just not enough light gathering. I would recommend this item.

              The Steiner binoculars are very nice, they are easy to adjust and clear as can be. I bought these because my left eye is not so good and I needed individual side adjustment. These have an adjustment for each eye and once they are set the binoculars work great

              Comments about Steiner 8x30 Military/Marine Binocular:

              I have two other larger Steiners...a Police and another Military model. The best binocular is the one you have with you when you need it....and with this 8X30, due to the compact size,I can always have it close by or on me. When weight and size is important, this model is the way to go. I don't think I need to get into the quality of this product, as Steiner is well know for this. Also included was a super nice heavy duty carry case and strap. You will be very happy if you get this item, and its very low $ price is impossible to beat.
