Commander Global 7x50 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steiner - Commander Global C7x50 I just received this product today. I have yet to taker it to work with me (Beach lifeguard). I have fiddles with it a bit and my first impressions are that it's very sturdy and looks/feels like an amazing pair of binoculars. I have heard great things about Steiner customer service and I can't wait to take them out on the ocean and break them in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous Product; Fabulous Service My philosophy is to use the best gear I can afford, especially in activities where they may be some element of risk, and I encourage that approach with others.   I've had my Commanders for about 30 years (Made in WEST Germany!). They have been used heavily both on land and at sea, and have held up very well. They are obviously rugged and durable. The optics are exemplary, especially in low-light conditions, the graticule is great for rangefinding and the compass/light is accurate and easy to use. I have been extremely satisfied with their performance. Here's the kicker. Steiner has an excellent service program. I finally decided to send them in to have the compass/light serviced, thinking that's all they needed. They made it easy to return the unit, kept me apprised of the progress and did far more work cleaning, polishing, replacing and upgrading various parts, and were very responsive to follow-up questions. They were a pleasure to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Optics - Great Upgrade Sent in my 18 year old Commander Digital Compass binoculars to see if they could be salvaged - unfortunately no (sad). Steiner offered to replace or credit via the Heritage Warranty to upgrade - so I upgraded. Commander Global is AWESOME !
