Comments about Pentax Pentax 8 x 40 PCF WP II, Water Proof Porro Prism Binocular with 6.3 Degree Angle of View, U.S.A.:
A good choice for active, rough use. These binoculars have served me well for a couple of years in a wide range of crummy weather, from cold snow to warm salt water, with minimal attention to where they were stored, dropped, or thrown. This review was prompted when I left them out in a wet snow storm overnight a couple of days ago. No problem, no fog or moisture inside(but I did bring them in to dry out). Optics, though pretty good, can't compare with more expensive brands or models, but think how you'd cry if your new $1000 Zeiss got dropped off the boat or if the lens got scratched by an errant tool on the car seat.
