MODEL 7155

Steiner has a mar­velous war­ranty, to which I can at­test when the com­pany agreed to take back my 25-year-old binoc­u­lars for re­pair with­out hes­i­ta­tion, or re­quir­ing re­ceipts or war­ranty-regis­tra­tion cards.

IN THE BOX: The ny­lon padded case in­cludes a neck strap, lens cov­ers and neo­prene neck strap for the binos. CON­CLU­SIONS: These got a “Wow!” from one tester the in­stant she raised them to her eyes. Once the sep­a­rate oc­u­lars were fo­cused, all testers could read the small­est let­ters on the bot­tom of the eye chart at 25 yards. In bright light the op­tics were clear, and the im­age was sharp at 100 yards. Per­haps a tes­ta­ment to the larger exit pupil and ob­jec­tive lens, the 7-power Stein­ers were ca­pa­ble of re­solv­ing line 7 of the Snellen chart. The com­pass is nat­u­rally and elec­tri­cally il­lu­mi­nated, steady and easy to read. Even at their price point, they are a bar­gain for their op­ti­cal qual­ity and come with the most ex­treme wa­ter­proof rat­ing of those we tested.
