The 10x42 EXWP I binoculars are waterproof up to 1 meter in depth. The binoculars have been filled with nitrogen gas to provide dependable performance in the severest of environments, hot, cold, or humid. Either model is a perfect choice for outdoor sports such as water sports and mountaineering.
Olympus has realized these optimal binoculars for the outdoor sports enthusiast through a dedication to coating. Glare has been removed by coating all the lens surfaces. An UV coat cuts the number of UV rays that penetrate the lenses making the binoculars gentle on the eyes. Moreover, a phase coat generates a sharper image with high contrast. Transmissivity has also been raised by keeping the loss of light to a minimum through the exclusive use of glass lenses and BaK4 prisms. Viewing over long periods is even possible by attaching a tripod. The long eye relief feature also makes the binoculars easy to use even with glasses on.
Olympus brings all this to you with "Made in Japan" reliability.
