Oberwerk Mariner binoculars offer excellent image quality at a moderate price. In fact, SPACE.COM recently reviewed the 8×40 Mariner and named it “Editor’s Choice“! These extra-rugged waterproof binoculars are ideal for hunting, surveillance, astronomy, and of course nautical applications.
The 8.4° Mariner has one of the widest field of views available from an 8x binocular. All air-to-glass surfaces are fully broadband multi-coated to decrease light loss due to scattering and reflections, a feature normally found only on binoculars with much higher price tags. The Oberwerk Mariner features heavy-duty rubber-armored metal construction, BAK4 prisms, precise center-focuser, right ocular diopter adjustment, twist-up eyecups, brass 1/4-20 tripod adapter threading, extra-rugged nylon padded carrying case, caps, and neck strap.
