Waterproof binoculars under £200

Waterproof outdoor binoculars

All of the binoculars listed here are waterproof and provide excellent viewing for just about everyone in the family. A pair of binoculars can be a lot of fun to spot birds, wild animals and even watch sports or events from a safe distance.


Water resistance



Nikon Action EX 10X50 waterproof binoculars

Up to 1 meter for 5 minutes

(Approx IPX-5)



Steiner Safari Ultrasharp 10X26 Compact Binoculars


(Approx IPX-4)



Nikon Sportstar EX 10x25 binoculars

Up to 2 m for 5 minutes

(Approx IPX-6)



Steiner BluHorizons 10X26 sunlight-adaptive binoculars

IPX-4 Water-Resistant (rainproof)



One of the most popular Nikon Action models comes in the form of the 10x50. he magnification means users get excellent long range with a wide image so anyone can get the most out of them. This pair is heavier than the other models we’ve selected so not suited to very young children.

These come with a 10 year guarantee so they are built to withstand anyone in the family enjoying them! Steiner build their binoculars in Monterey, California and know a thing or two about making them durable and fun to use outdoors.

We love these binoculars as they are lightweight, waterproof for up to 2 minutes and provide a wide field of view with excellent clear images. With Nikon’s optical experience and costing under £100 we think they are a steal.

Steiner’s binos were the first to market with proprietary optics that offset dazzling light automatically, for the best view under sunlit and bright conditions. With NBR Long Life Rubber Armouring they can withstand some knocks too and make an excellent investment for outdoor viewing.

Drones make an excellent family gift
