Olympus Magellan WP I Binoculars

Waterproof, dustproof, fogproof and idiotproof, Olympus's Magellan WP I Binoculars are effective and inexpensive-an elusive combo in the world of high-performance optics. Weighing in at 12 ounces, the Magellan is one of Olympus's most portable models and is designed to take a beating in the great outdoors. The casing is hermetically sealed and nitrogen-filled, which, aside from ensuring resilience in extreme conditions, also means that mold won't grow during storage. As for image quality, the Magellan employs multi-coated lenses that are normally the hallmark of higher-priced models. The Magellan comes in two magnifications (8x25 and 10x25) and serves double-duty thanks to special materials that filter out UV rays-so you can focus without sunglasses.
